Description: Julie's Park Cafe and Motel is a traditional American cafe that is set just outside Peninsula State Park and just at the north end of Fish Creek, WI. Minutes from shops, beaches, water, parks, and bike rentals. We love to accommodate any and everyone that comes in for a great dining experience. We have indoor and outdoor seating, the outdoor seating is pet friendly. We serve breakfast all day as well and lunch and dinner. Just look for the Big Purple Chair on our front lawn and enter the place as strangers and you will definatly leave as our freinds.

Reviewed July 5, 2013

Great little restaurant right at the entrance to Peninsula Park. Hike the Eagle Trail and then stop in to refuel. Crazy colors inside and tables outside. Friendly staff and great food. Check out the visitors from all over the world as you eat. We had an excellent experience.

“Fantastic Friday Perch Special”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

We went on a Friday with friends to try the Perch Special. The dinner was fantastic. The breading was light and not greasy. Each plate consisted of 3-4 butterfly perch, which was more than enough when combined with the dark rye bread, cole slaw and french fries. The staff are very upbeat, friendly and attentive to the customers needs. The desserts offered looked delicious and the portions were oversized. However, we were too full to try any.

“Some places just get it right!”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

There is a lot of competition in Fish Creek, so expectations were high. Julie's has a great location to start. When you enter, you are greeted immediatley with a smile.

They are open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We chose it for dinner in particular because we had our 8 yr. old granddaughter with us and she wanted pancakes. My husband wanted bacon & eggs, and I wanted a big salad.

The children's pancake was made in the shape of a face with fruit for the eyes. Along with a fruit cup(all fresh) and some bacon, this was a big hit. I had the Door Co. cherry salad with blue cheese, pecans, dried cherries, and a balsalmic vineagrette---excellent!

When the dessert tray was brought over we couldn't resist a slice of key lime pie to share. All of the desserts were tempting and we were happy with our choice.

Our server, Bethany, was delightful. Genuinely friendly, informative, and great with our granddaughter.

We had such a good experience at Julie's that we returned the next night, and asked for Bethany to take care of us again. This time I ordered off the dinner menu--coconut shrimp. Now this is something I order often in many different cities and I have to say that these were as good as many high-end restaurants.

Congratulations to the chefs and staff. It's clear why you are highly rated for the area.
