The trendy decor and subtle lighting really got my hopes up for great food. But alas, my mom and I left disappointed with the food and the prices.

Trip adviser says open now but I called the number and recording from AT&T said this number is no longer in service and offered to suggest another business.

Not a very fancy restaurant, more like a neighborhood bar serving food. Orders got screwed up and took a long time to get food. Very apologetic and discounted dinners.

The only reason this place is getting a 2 is because of the food. It's amazing. It's homemade Italian that tastes fresh and looks great. My husband and I found John Martins last year when we were in Door County (staying down the street) and...More

Located in downtown Sturgeon Bay on Historic Third Avenue in beautiful Door County, Wisconsin. Choose to dine at the bar, at a bistro table along the sidewalk or relax on a cushioned chair in the cozy wood floor dining room. Large photos focusing on the history of Sturgeon Bay pepper the restaurant. The new chef has a strong bent on creativity and local sourcing. His philosophy for features is "Familiar enough to be comfortable but exotic enough to be exciting." The focus is on local and fresh (organic features, and appetizers, in season) is apparent, and when blended with the passion of the staff, it is becoming a foodie destination. We will work with any and all dietary restrictions or food allergies. Ask about "Chefs Choice" options. Call for reservations or a chef consultation for that special occasion.
