Located on the southern shore of the bay of Sturgeon Bay - Take County S west from the traffic light with Wisconsin 42-57 straight until you get to the sign for the restaurant (almost 2 miles). Laid back with indoor and outdoor seating facing the water. Beautiful views, nightly specials, and an excellent white fish chowder to go with a... More

Nice view at the outside tables. Had the patty melt with the veggie patty, tasty, but onions were raw. Kind of strange for a patty melt. Homemade potato chips were outstanding. Hubby had fish and chips. Fish was nice and light. Good coleslaw,too. French fries were a disappointment. Service was underwhelming.

We went there last night for dinner and the experience was okay. Our server was super nice and recommended some of her favorite things. Long story short, the cheese curds and cherry pie are a must when eating there. Everything else, make sure to ask what's on each dish because they do not have descriptions on there menu, which ended... More

This was my first experience having a famous Door County fish boil and I was very disappointed. Mary's uses cod instead of whitefish and I did not like it very much. My advice would be to find a different fish boil that uses a higher quality fish.

After reading reviews and laboring over where to go for the authentic fish boil experience, we chose Mary's as it was close to where we were staying. So glad! On the water, food was yummy, good service--just a very nice evening!

We ate here last summer and had a great, relaxing time with our 4 kids. There was live music. The fish boil presentation was lacking but the food was excellent. My husband said is was the best meal he had ever had. Bar service was indeed slow but we are going back this week!

We called for a reservation a week in advance since we were traveling 4 hours for the fish boil. They even called us back to get my credit card info for the reservation. When we got there they didn't see our name for the reservation and I asked the girl working, Mykala, to look for my credit card. She said... More

Sign said fish boil when we checked in. Waited 3 days only to not get it. Reservations required. Got ok fish and chips, son got chicken alfredo. Sauce watery and lumpy. Music was great, but they are from Nashville, up for one day for the tall ships festival.

Looking forward to a Sunday Bloody Mary on the last morning of our trip. Older gentleman behind the bar ignored me for the longest time. When he did acknowledge me and I asked for a Bloody Mary, he proceeded to complain to me about how he can't get his paperwork done and till wasn't open. So I asked " so,... More
