“Great Supper Club”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

We dined here on vacation in Sturgeon Bay. We both had great dinners. Rib eye steak done to perfection with the merlot sauce. Filet was cooked perfectly medium. Shrimp combo was a nice sauté. Could have been bigger. Not jumbo as described, but delicious all the same. Salad bar could use a slight update but plenty of options to choose from. Gumbo soup was very good too. Service was attentive but other waitress took care of us also when ours was absent. Beautiful surrounding with a view of the lake for sunset. A must go. You will not be disappointed.

“Wow! Everyone comes out for prime rib on Thursday night!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

I sure was surprised to see so many folks out to eat on a Thursday night in the off season, but it wasn't a problem to get the 6 of us served in time to get to the Pro Arte Quartet concert in Ephraim. Several of us had the walleye and we were all satisfied and the salad bar had a wonderful selection.

“Out of the way but worth the trip!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

This little hidden gem is a great place to go for a couples dinner. It is a little out of the way and a bit intimidating for first time Door County travelers in the dark but we found it well worth the trip and enjoyed a wonderful dinner! True upscale supper club! Enjoyed the roaring fire in the bar area when entering on a cold November evening. Even though we visited on a week night, they were still quite busy, but the service was great as was the food!

“Mixed views”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

My wife and I went there last night. The food was good, the atmosphere was very nice, and our waitress was very friendly and efficient. However, we had a 7:00 reservation and were not seated until 7:25, a different waitress told me to move to a different seat at our table because I was blocking the aisle (very insulting), and the restaurant used a technicality to deny our Groupon, something no other restaurant has done. I guess when business is good, you don't always have to treat your customers like you should.

“Excellent food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

Three visits in a row and ordered the "blackened" prime rib. Just can't explain how great it tasted! My wife and I order medium rare...so consider that. Hands down....our choice for the Prime Rib! The buffet style salad bar and the ladle your own soups add to the ambiance of an awesome atmosphere. By the way...Andy is the best Host in Door County! He really does care...and that makes all the difference. Not biased since we do not know him personally.
