Description: This is a little restaurant at the marina on Washington Island, WI. They have great food and top notch service. I found it this summer. You should include them in your reviews so more people can try their great food. It's not cheap, but it's worth it.

We decided to go out for dinner as a family, which can always be trying with a 2 and 4 yo. So, we tried Sailor's Pub. The place was a bit small and with tourist season we were worried about getting in and the wait. We got there early evening and got right in. The wait for food was very reasonable and because it's right on the shores of Lake Michigan you can take a stroll outside to walk the docks and look across the water at nearby Detroit Island.

I ordered pasta which was great. My wife is lactose intolerant and made them aware. The waitress checked with the cook on what items she could eat. She ordered the wrap and it came with cheese and just said no cheese. She came back later and said they had some vegan cheese they would be happy to substitute and she was glad she did as it was fantastic.

For our young kids, they had a kids menu which was reasonable and crayons. When they got a bit fussy, they even brought them a couple games to play which was very nice of them.

Overall, we were very happy and hope to go again next year...probably without the kids though :)

This restaurant has a great location next to the water with a small marina and beautiful sunsets. It is small but on some nights it is very busy because the food is great. A family run restaurant that is clean, clean, clean with a lot of care used when making and serving delicious dinners. Reservations are suggested especially during the last two weeks of July and August. They are closed Mondays - no matter if it is a holiday or not. While the food is excellent quality, the prices are "Chicago style." If you're ready to splurge while on a holiday this place is worth it.

First time ever on Washington Island - been going to Door County for years! Everyone from the ferry crew to the Red Cup Coffee house recommended the "Sailor's Pub". The food was wonderful, staff was terrific - family-friendly place. The sunset was gorgeous and we had a view that was beautiful. It's a small restaurant, but worth the wait. We sat at the bar for over an hour because we didn't make reservations, but again, it was worth it. Looking forward to going back.

Very well prepared, no-frills food, specialty of the island like perch fry, for example, that is nicer than other establishments on the island. Great view of the lake if you choose to sit outside. If you wanted to go a bit more dressed-up, grown-up, then this is the place.

We ate at Sailor's Pub our last night on Washington Island. I had scallops in a curry sauce with rice. My husband had duck with a cherry sauce. We were both delighted with our entrees. And our waitress, Michelle, was the best! We had the warmest welcome on Washington Island and felt that the gift of hospitality was a blessing! I hope others make the trip and enjoy what we enjoyed.
