“We all Scream for Ice Cream”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

No trip to Door County, WI is complete if you don't stop for ice cream at Wilson's!! It is an absolute must. It is like a step back in time to a Malt Shop and the ice cream is fabulous! It is fun to stop there and even better if you go in the evening and walk across the street to enjoy a gorgeous sunset while eating your ice cream. There is usually a line waiting for ice cream but it is fun and the people in line are happy to wait!

“Famous for Ice Cream”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

This place is a Door County Icon. If you have never been to DoorCounty you won't miss Wilsons. If you have been to Door County you know it well! It resembles a step back in time with it's vintage look and ice cream counter. If you are having a cone it has to be taken out (to go). If you are eating at a table you must order from the menu. This is fine with everyone because it is tradition. There are juke boxes at every table connected to the main juke-box. We have spent many quarters finding our favorite songs. The food and ice cream - all delicious! Service is friendly and it is always busy. Don't mind the wait, it's worth it. Great family place!

“Ok food, GOOD Ice Cream”
Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

Fun atmosphere, old-style type diner. Food was decent. I ordered the double cheeseburger and it was pretty bland, similar to Burger King.

However, the ice cream was delicious. Lots of different flavors and old-fashioned sundaes are the best.

“Dinner and Ice Cream”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

Great place and a must stop while in Door County. Old time Ice Cream shop/restaurant that makes their own Root Beer. Service is good, Burger & Fries good, Root Beer great! We also had ice cream sundae's which come in the turtle glasses and was wonderful tasting! Love this place!

“Ice Cream Only for our visit”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

Had to go to try their Ice Cream as the reviews were so good. It was well deserved. Lots of choices and very generous portions. It seems packed but they do a very nice job of moving through the wait, do not let the crowd keep you away.
