“Great food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

We love the Cookery. We've been going to Door County for over 20 years and alway eat at the Cookery. Our favorite is the Friday Perch Fry. It is lightly breaded and pan fried, not deep fried. They have great service a nice wine selection and the perfect location. They also make great cherry pie!

“Our Door County Top Pick”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

Now featuring outdoor dining and a deck, this old reliable is new after a post fire renovation and complete revamping. We come for the Whitefish Chowder, even in Summertime!

“Excellent food, good service, great atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

A surprisingly good meal in such a touristy town. We were there for lunch and had the fish chowder (rich and creamy) eggplant fries (worth every penny at $7) and shared a quinoa and beet salad with feta cheese (excellent and a meal at $11). Great atmosphere, really classy without being ostentatious. Felt comfortable there in shorts and sandals. Would go back.

“Great Restaurant”

The food is great, service excellent, prices reasonable. I had scallops, husband had 1/2 chicken and I can recommend both. Try the cherry crisp for dessert.

“Great food and very pleasant atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

My family had dinner here (party of 6) and sat outside. The menu was varied--everyone could find a few things to order, it had a nice elegance to it in a casual way. Will come back again when we vacation here.
