So romantic. Quiet, soft lighting, wonderful food and a grand selection of wines. The location cannot be beat. Right in town and a block from the waters edge and the marina. We never go to Door County without stopping here for dinner,

Field to table local farm foods with a menu that changes daily and contains flavorful foods for all palates including this vegetarian foodie. Prices are extremely fair. On a busy night you'll still have such great service you'll feel like their most important customer.

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

Fine dining in a casual atmosphere with an ever changing menu that highlights local farms. World class Hinterland Beer and wines from around the world help you to relax and enjoy your meal while watching the town from the veranda in summer or gazing at the fire in winter.
