On our way out of town, we opted to stop for lunch in Fish Creek and try Summertime, it has been there for a long time and usually is buzzing with people in the summer. Well it was the first day of Fall, and there was no one buzzing there that day. They opened at 11 and we waited for... More

First of all, there are a lot of positives to mention here. The menu was well-rounded and included seafood, pasta, burgers, and other sandwiches. It was broken down into "plate size" so if you're a light eater, you weren't forced paying a lot of money for a lot of food you couldn't eat. There were the big ticket items like... More

Went on a weekend so it was a real treat to find this quiet place among the overcrowded tourist places. Menu was well rounded with some nice fish dishes. Food was great and portions were ample. Waitstaff were attentive but not overbearing. Great place to stop for a leisurely dinner. Will definitely go back the next time we visit Fish... More

When we stopped to check out the menu posted on the door a woman came out to tell us about their food. After doing some shopping and checking out a few other restaurants we went back for dinner. I had one of the specials-mushroom ravioli and it was very good. Sometimes the sauce for dishes is salty but this was... More

I was looking for a reasonably priced meal, which is hard to find in Door County. I checked out a couple of other restaurants on Highway 42 and they were RIDICULOUSLY high priced!!! I ended up stumbling upon Summertime by accident, and after looking at their menu on the door, decided to dine here. I was thinking of eating outside... More

We were looking for a steak house and this is the spot. Once seated, the owner came over and explained the steak options and their differences. He was very nice and didn't push anything, just explained. Most of the men ordered a steak and raved about it. Very happy with the steak dinners. Three of the women in our group... More

This was my first visit to Door County and the first restaurant ~ we arrived at 9:00 on a Friday night and thank goodness the owner was still there, because he told the wait staff & kitchen to stay and wait on us. Well the 2 servers looked less than thrilled that we arrived at that time, then I ordered... More

Stopped for lunch and sat outside. The waitress was very friendly and attentive. I had the perch sandwich with fries. The fish was perfect but my fries were soggy. One of my friends had the oriental chicken salad. There was a lot of spinach and a plethora of strawberries. She said it was good. My other friend had the lump... More
