My husband and I were in Fish Creek for a getaway and had appetizers in the restaurant. All of the food is fresh, local and beautifully presented. The salad was amazing, especially the dressing. The dressing is a family recipe that was handed down to the mother-in-law of the chef. The staff were all wonderful, especially our waiter, Robert. He... More

A group of friends from Michigan, Florida, Canada and Wisconsin were dining together and we were disappointed. The restaurant is quite noisy but the tables are nicely appointed with cute center pieces. The ice tea was tasty and a few enjoyed local fresh cherry juice. A nice beginning to the meal was complimentary gazpacho soup in a cordial glass. There... More

We sat on the veranda. Rachel was our waitstaff. A joy. Highly recommend the street corner appetizer-phenom! Nice presentation. Get the donut dessert. Quaint, vintage feel. Would return.

We opted to sit inside; the patio was a greenhouse. Needs better ventilation. Eggs Benedict was zesty. Syrup was rationed; for three 8" flapjacks we got a small 1/2 full ramiken (so a tablespoon or two?). When I asked for a couple more, I got one. Other than that, very good.

Service, greetings, food, experience: all top shelf. We can't express enough how fresh, simple yet complex the food is. The whole experience is phenomenal beginning to end. You will not be disappointed. We can understand comments to heat on veranda-- it was warm initially but cooled as evening progressed. We were never hurried. Kudos and we WILL be back.

Whispering Swan deserves five stars. The service is spectacular. The soup for amuse Bouche and the caramel treats for at the end of the meal were divine. I greatly enjoyed my pasta dish. The bread was wonderful. Best meal I have had in the last three months.

Whistling Swan Restaurant is in a vintage home with lovely ambiance. My husband and I went here the first night of our vacation in Door County. We started with the Heirloom Tomatoes which were superb! I had the Grilled pork chop ‘nduja with roasted carrots, green beans, kohlrabi, scallion & walnut salad, sheep’s milk cheese gnudi and honey emulsion. This... More

One of the best meals we have had in a while! They offered us a free snack, bread, and small spoonful of dessert which was not expected at all but definitely delicious. I had the corn cakes and my boyfriend had the pork chop. We both loved our dishes and my boyfriend even said that was the ear pork chop... More

Dinner here was excellent, but you will definitely want to ask for an inside table on a hot day. The "patio" area is all enclosed with open windows, but the a/c from inside does not cool it. The menu is pricey compared to other Fish Creek restaurants, but has a very nice ambiance and may not be suited for small... More

We had a recommendation from a local to try the Whistling Swan for dinner. We sat on the veranda, which was beautiful and allowed us to people watch while we dined. I ordered the vegetarian entree, which was Sweet Corn Johnnycakes--they were absolutely delicious! My husband had Shrimp with Fettuccine, which also was great. We also enjoyed our Ravioli appetizer.... More
