Delicious giant sized sundaes - big enough for 2 to share! Friendly service, beautiful view. Prices in line with all the other Door County establishments. We got a table right away, but there was a line when we left, very popular! We were only there for the ice cream, so can't comment on the rest of the menu.

Beautiful, quaint and nostalgic traditional ice cream parlor. Outstanding sundaes, milk shakes and ice cream floats. Not sure why I ordered nachos but it would not do it again, not that the nachos were bad, they were actually homemade and alright, but you should be eating ice cream here. Stick to what they do best!

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!

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!

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.
