“Lovely way to end our stay in Door County”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

We stopped here on a Monday morning before heading home to have a filling breakfast. The place was packed, but we only had a 15 minute wait, which wasn't bad. The stuffed french toast was good, cherry pancakes were good, the Canadian bacon was slab cut,not the thin slice normally served in a restaurant. I would not recommend the Nice Guy Hash, however - huge mound of hash browns, most of which were mushy with only the outside having some crisp to it. I really couldn't taste the pepper and onions there was so little of it, no seasonings, and so it seemed a rather bland dish. Other than that, the meal was very nice. Based on the looks of the place, it would be a very nice place to stay as a couple without kids!

“Fish Boil is why we went”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

It was a good Fish Boil, but just to many kids. Our waitress was wonderful, and I just wish we had the time to go back for a regular dinner.

“Awesome Fish Boil”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Great presentation for the fish boil. They were friendly & well organized to handle the large group. The meal was delicious, & my husband enjoyed seconds! The cherry pie was to die for, & the service was excellent!

“All I can say is BREAKFAST!!!!!”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

This is the best breakfast you will ever have on vacation. Worth getting up early to avoid the wait. It will get busy fast but worth the wait. Kids get the hot chocolate and you will have a great surprise (cup and pitcher). Parents don't forget the hash browns, OH MY GOSH!

“Go For Breakfast!”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

the famous stuffed french toast is worth the wait, if there is one! The coffee cake is huge and freshly made. Came for the progressive dinner in December last year and the dinner was excellent! Festive holiday decor....
