Square Rigger Galley
July 08, 2009 - My Family and I have made an annual summertime visit to the Square Rigger restaurant for their fish boil.We have enjoyed the small intimate atmosphere, the outdoor deck over looking the lake, the appetizers and the fish boil meal.Sadly this summers (2009) visit was a great disappointment.It started with the fact that they did not have a bar tender.We gave up on our requests for simple mixed drink and ordered wine and beer.The appetizers were half of what the had included in the past.My semi confused 87 year old father was yelled at when he attempted to sit at a table following the outdoor boil over.Specific tables are assigned to guests yet not communicated where our party of six was to sit.(It would have been nice to be seated or told before or when we first arrived)The fish boil is followed by desert (cherry pie alamode) which was on par with a dated store bought pie.The staff refused initially to help us divide our bill when attempting to pay. Given the opportunity or if asked I would have shared my disappointment with the staff.My only advise is to seek a fish boil somewhere else in Door County, WI (as will I) and that the staff attend some hospitality training.

Door County offer amazing scenery in every season. Daffodils are already popping up which means the cherry and apple blossoms of spring are sure to come soon.
