We came with empty stomachs and high hopes for this restaurant. While many of the reviews boast high quality and authentic Mexican cuisine, La Puerta left little to be desired. We ordered guac and salsa, which were brought to the table quickly. The guac was decent, served on a plate with a flimsy piece of kale (purpose?). The salsa was... More

Don't miss it on Friday nights. It's their special and it's excellent. Ask for their potato salad with it. We eat fish a lot and have been to every fish fry on Friday. This is still the best. Don't get stuck in the new Sister Bay, drive through a little farther and enjoy the fish! PS make sure you try... More

There is something for everyone at JJ's La Puerta! It is a relaxing and non-assuming place to hangout with family and friends. There is a bar, table seating, and booths for families. Family friendly for sure!

My family has been going to JJ's La Puerta ever since I can remember. The food is delicious and the service is good. It's a bit off the beaten path (as you head out of the north side of Sister Bay) which means it's not crowded and I've never encountered a wait.

Fun, festive decor. Friendly, quick service. The food was really good. The chips and salsa were pretty flavorful. I ordered chicken quesadillas with a side of rice and they were really tasty as well. I also ordered a strawberry daiquiri--it was strong and delicious.

There's nothing good I can say about this place. Went there at 8:00 on a Saturday night. The restaurant was so over crowded our companion who is a fireman commented that they must be violating the fire code. Tables almost blocking the door and packed so close to each other the servers couldn't get by. It was so miserably hot... More

Had a great visit to JJ's. The two bartenders were so much fun. The food was great too. Highly recommend.

Food was ok. Had fish sandwich to go but the tarter sauce was given to us separately. In the car, putting tarter sauce on a fish sandwich that was loose and falling apart was horrible. No napkins either.

You say you love crab legs....well, look no further. JJ's has the best....a huge platter of legs, with drawn butter, cole slaw, and potatoes. This is a feast. And, for the non seafood lovers there is a huge menu, with lots of options, from a good burger to popular Mexican food. Big families love this place....they can eat a lot... More

Great casual place to eat and socialize with others. The food is great-best chips/salsa and margaritas in Door County. House shot: The Bernie. Ring the bell! Sugar Shack Tiki Bar on the water located behind JJ's for sunset!
