Just the place to stop in and rest from shopping. The hot dogs alone are worth the trip. Crazy decorations add to the ambiance.

If you're looking for a great dinner place this is it! The fish is so good. Plus you have a wonderful atmosphere. The staff is friendly. We've been there a few times and haven't been disappointed. Would go back again.

Chicago style dogs were good. Kids were fine with the burgers and a Gyro. Fries were average. Not a lot of seating, all of which is outside. Some seating is in the sun. Some of the seating is actually standing.

What a pleasant surprise. We had a craving for a good Chicago hot dog with the works and were not disappointed with the Italian dog. Fries were good and the lemonade actually was flavorful, some restaurants serve watered down lemonade. It was early afternoon and business was steady. It is a small corner restaurant with outdoor seating and orders are... More

Went here for a quick lunch- food came out fast which was great. BUT prices were high ($7 cheeseburger, no fries, no drink/ $2.35 for a 16oz soda) and CASH ONLY.

Have been coming here for years, better alternative than bar food. The owner Bryan was a chef for about 20 years, before taking over this small outdoor dining venue. Good Chicago dogs, walleye sandwich, burgers. Clean, cheaper than most, but good quality ingredients.

Every time we go there the food is great. Prices are more than reasonable for Northern Door county. Fun to sit and eat outside and people watch. Staff is great, friendly, and more than willing to serve.

Have eaten there a couple of times, but won't again. High-priced hot-dogs and burgers. You place your order at a window and then sit till your number is called. We had to ask for spoons and straws and they looked at us as if we were being demanding. Bad attitude put the final nail in their coffin. Tables are commonly... More

Sure, the prices are a little high, but it's Door County and you're not going away hungry. We love the Italian beef, the burgers are pretty good too.

We go quite often during the summer season - they have a dog and burger special on Wednesdays. Only 4 bucks with a LARGE side of fries. And they're good! You can get the dog Chicago style or the burger with cheese, no extra charge. Some of the items on the menu are a little pricey, a root beer float... More
