Description: The Viking Grill in Ellision Bay features affordable family favorites and our world-famous Viking Fish Boil! Enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner. Our buttermilk pancakes are light and fluffy, but our biggest secret is our outstanding Swedish pancakes (served all day). Try them- you won't be sorry! Another early morning favorite is our award winning homemade Corned Beef Hash. A great way to start a busy day on the Door peninsula. And whether you are looking for hearty or light The Viking Grill has something for you. Wrapped sandwiches, homesytle soups, a selection of 7 salads, and mouthwatering appetizers - perfect with a cold beer or cocktail from the bar. Dinner at The Viking means broasted chicken, Lake Perch, generously cut steaks and more. Come experience the Viking - we'll leave the grill on!

“Overly generous portions a Viking would appreciate”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

The Viking Grill is a tradition. Been dining here for years. Always something new or something that's been around forever. Soups, salads and lots of traditional burgers and fish dishes plus quesadillas. I ordered a tomato and tuna salad and got TWO huge tomatoes and tuna salads. The bowl was a cup and the cup was a bowl, but semantics aside, it's a good place to stop on the way to or from the Clearning or north penisula.

“We love Fish Boils”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

We love Fish Boils and we often stop at the Viking. Their Fish Boil rarely changes nor does it ever disappoint. Our biggest issue was stopping after 8pm on Friday of Labor Day weekend. They had already quit serving! Better stop before 7pm for their Fish Boil. It was worth coming back for on Saturday. A little later on weekends please! Some of us drive a long way to eat there. The man cooking (originally from Texas) was another reason we'll come back....what a great guy!

“very goood food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

This place has excellant food, we stop everytime we are in Door County. The only complaint I have is one of the waitresses and we seem to always get her does not write down the food orders as she takes them. We usually have about 6 people ordering and almost everytime our order is wrong when the food comes. This is really getting frustrating, we love the food but hate being waited on by this woman, everytime we go this place is very busy so I'm sure we are not the only ones with messed up orders.

“Quiet diner type place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

I was expecting more, but the food was good. Waitress was a little slow, I asked for a refill 1/2 way through my meal, got it well after I was done along with the check.

“Train wreck”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

All I can say is what a freakin train wreck of an experience. The bartender is a clown. He didn't know how to make a drink (physically make) and had no idea how to open a bottle of wine or pour a normal glass. When he ovetpoured he spent time actually pouring it back INTO the bottle. The waitress unprofessionally yelled at him because "she had her own job to do" and was totally rude. Later, a glas of wine got returned and he put that back in the bottle too. The fish boil was ok, but they didn't make enough and a couple with little kids had to wait for them to quickly make more. Then flies climbed out of the cole slaw and I thought I was going to puke. I had to Toss my cherry pie because it was fly infested. Please, trust the bad reviews and avoid this place. Nightmare.
