We ate here for lunch, sat outside upstairs. Had a beautiful view. We had the Door salad, chicken salad sandwich and fish chowder. All were very good. Everything tasted homemade and fresh. Service was very good too.

We visit Door County several times per year and decided to stop for lunch after hearing great things about the place. We had the fish tacos and they were great. I was happy to see that they offer breakfast - we'll try that next time. Service was very good. Clean.

Food was good, wait wasn't too long considering a Saturday morning. Generous enough to sate the hunger, without over eating.

Their food is unbelievably good! I'm not kidding when I say you have to get the chicken sandwich. It is amazing! Excellent potato salad on the side. The servers are really kind and welcoming. Just a nice atmosphere. You will not be disappointed!

Lovely location and great patio. The food, however, is sub par at best. Had the stuffed pork chop that was microwaved. The fried perch not even close to what you would expect in a Wisconsin fish fry. On the other hand, dessert was delicious.

This place has a pleasant atmosphere, very good service, and consistently very good food. I had a breakfast that include crab/shrimp cakes, eggs, and salad. I also had a burger for dinner with a great salad. The food was all top notch.

The Cookery is a favorite restaurant of my family's, which is why we made it a point to return- twice! during our recent visit to Door County! First was lunch. I have the fish tacos, made w/ perch, which was breaded. It wasn't heavy breading, nor was it greasy, which ruins fish tacos. I would have liked to have more... More

We've visited before on numerous occasions. This time proved just as nice - food and service. We ate a breakfast and lunch both during stay (Cookery has couple overnight accommodations.) and neither disappointed. Eggs, fish, chicken salad, oatmeal (!) all good. Recommend highly. Plus, they have several items they make for sale. Bonus.

Thank Melissa B
