The restaurant is a bit out of the way from the normal Door County destinations but it is worth the drive. The food, view and service are all excellent. We both had the Glidden steak. I would definitely recommend it and this restaurant.

The "Gliddenized" steaks are arguably the best I've ever had, such an unbelievable combination of flavor. Some of the best lobster tails I've ever had. Ambiance is unique. No questions asked, just go.
