My husband and I ate lunch here. The food is fresh and creative. I had the wild caught salmon sandwich. The pesto and the tartar sauce were fantastic. The potato salad was homemade! My husband got a burger and it was cooked to order. You can't go wrong here.

After a day of wine tasting and shopping we ended the evening at The Cookery. We ended up having dinner in the Wine Bar area as were not looking a full meal. The food was good and they had Laguintas on tap which was a plus++++. Service was a little slow to start off as there were not many people at the Wine Bar and we had to stop someone to take our order. After that service was great and attentive. Very cute inside!

This was my first time eating at The Cookery and I was very impressed! The menu offered a wide variety of choices, including some great gluten-free options. The potato salad is homemade and excellent. I would strongly recommend the perch sandwich for lunch. My family and I all gave our lunch a big thumbs up. The atmosphere is very nice along with the service. The next time I'm back in Door County, I'll definitely be stopping at The Cookery!

We always have breakfast here when visiting Door County. The portions are very generous and everything is fresh. Try the cherry jam! It's house-made and very good. Many of their offerings are locally sourced.

If you want to pay extremely high prices, for bland food, then this is the place for you. We were here for breakfast shortly after they opened on a Sunday morning. The service is outstanding. Our coffee cups were refilled as soon as we took a few sips. The breakfast itself - bland and boring. I think my scrambled eggs had not a speck of seasoning put into them, not even salt, and they were overcooked. I had to use hot sauce to give them some flavor. The entire breakfast is priced at about double what it should be for what you get. The owner seems eager to please. There is a much better place in Fish Creek to go for breakfast.

Thank you for your compliments of our service; however, we are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your eggs and appreciate your feedback about your breakfast. We have always been very health conscious when creating our menu. Back in the 1980s, Carol was one of the first restauranteurs in the area to have The Cookery's menu analyzed by Door County Memorial Hospital for salt and fat content. We continue this practice today and do not season with any extra salt.

We feel that our menu is priced competitively with other comparable restaurants in Door County. We strive to bring local, organic products to our customer's plate. We also make everything on our menu from scratch, from the house made jams and sauces to our freshly baked breads and bakery. The pricing of our menu is reflective of these efforts.

We have many other menu items that may be more to your liking, we hope you will consider trying our restaurant again on a future visit to Fish Creek.
