Average food, very slow service. Price was moderate, but would not recommend if you are not patient.

We were tired of the burger and fries scene, and Julie's made a good counterpoint. A lovely evening, we ate on the outdoor patio adjacent to the restaurant. I tried a homemade chicken pot pie with a red pepper soup and thoroughly enjoyed. Our other entree was a pot roast special that was also very good. The restaurant offers a... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are happy that you enjoyed the pot pie. That is a favorite of mine. I will let David know that you enjoyed the red pepper soup. It was the first time we've had it here and are happy to hear you liked it. Hope to see you again! More

Based on the reviewers, we thought we would give this a try, but were extremely disappointed. The service and atmosphere were fine, but the food was awful. Stir fry consisted of what tasted like canned vegetables, frozen quick-microwaved meat and soggy rice. "Jambalaya" was basically a can of tomato soup with frozen sausage tossed in. Salad with kale had woody... More

We have (and will continue to do so) eaten here many times and have never been disappointed and the service is excellent! A "must" is their homemade cherry pie of which we always bring one home for us...enjoy!! Also, their patio is "pet friendly".

Every trip to Door County must include a visit to Julie's. This trip, it was for dinner; the fish fry was excellent and cherry pie for dessert was outstanding. This is no ordinary cafe; there are many unusual options on the menu and I've tried many over the years. I'm never disappointed!

If you like the Scandinavian feel of Door County, you will probably like Julie's...a longtime fixture in Fish Creek. Although it operates a hotel, I enjoy the restaurant, which usually employs young people from all over the world during the summer. They operate a small and cozy dining room, but also offer a lovely patio (bring your dog!). Food is... More

We have stopped a Julie's Park Cafe the last three times we have visited Door County. The food is wonderfully prepare, the coffee is great and if you make a reservation, you don't have to wait long, except for the second cup of coffee and refill on the water. The only down side with the Cafe is that the prices... More

We try to eat at Julie's at least once every time we go to Door County. The food is great, the service fantastic, and the atmosphere warm and interesting. Julie's is a great place to start or end the day. And the chair…! The big chair! This last trip, we spent 15 minutes out front doing photos in the chair... More

Was seated and tried to order the early bird at 8.55, but waitress said by the time she put it in it would be regular price. That stinks. The glass of water was good. I left no tip.

I'm disappointed to hear that this happened to you. This is not how our servers are trained. Your server should have rushed to the computer to get it in with the early price. We will use your feedback to review this with our staff so it won't happen to someone else. We hope that you enjoyed your food and will... More

Description
Julie's Park Cafe and Motel is a traditional American cafe that is set just outside Peninsula State Park and just at the north end of Fish Creek, WI. Minutes from shops, beaches, water, parks, and bike rentals. We love to accommodate any and everyone that comes in for a great dining experience. We have indoor and outdoor seating, the outdoor seating is pet friendly. We serve breakfast all day as well and lunch and dinner. Just look for the Big Purple Chair on our front lawn and enter the place as strangers and you will definatly leave as our freinds.
