First, the owner makes fresh donuts every morning. The donuts are AWESOME and reasonably priced at $.75/each. The corned beef hash is some of the best we've had dining out. The "dumpster" is another breakfast menu item that is one of our favorites. Couple of...More

Busy place but good service and great food. More of a hometown type place you'd have found years ago. They make you comfortable and serve a wide variety of good food.

Stopped in this place (3 adults) for a quick snack. 2 orders of chicken strips and an order of onion rings. Well exceeded our expectations! Lounge is small. No patrons when we were there early afternoon. They have an outdoor patio also. Nice family stop.

The food was good here and the service was good, even though we arrived only five minutes before they closed. That was the only problem - they close at 7:00, so you have to go early. The tuna salad sandwich on a pretzel bun was...More

Service was slow and there were only two other customers there. Food tasted like you were eating a piece of iron. Will never go back.

My spouse and I have eaten breakfast, lunch and dinner here so many times, that I have lost count. Going back at least 20 years, when we first spent an October weekend in the Door with six friends, we always piled into the Viking for...More

Lucky to be able to sit outside for lunch on a warm October day. All of us had the broasted chicken with all the trimmings. Great food and service. This is the home of the original fish boil.

Nice selection on the menu but pricey. It is Door County so you expect that. The outside is welcoming but the inside needs updating. A couple of the waitresses were nice but the one who showed us to our table must have been having a...More

The Viking Grill in Ellision Bay features affordable family favorites and our world-famous Viking Fish Boil! Enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner. Our buttermilk pancakes are light and fluffy, but our biggest secret is our outstanding Swedish pancakes (served all day). Try them- you won't be sorry! Another early morning favorite is our award winning homemade Corned Beef Hash. A great way to start a busy day on the Door peninsula. And whether you are looking for hearty or light The Viking Grill has something for you. Wrapped sandwiches, homesytle soups, a selection of 7 salads, and mouthwatering appetizers - perfect with a cold beer or cocktail from the bar. Dinner at The Viking means broasted chicken, Lake Perch, generously cut steaks and more. Come experience the Viking - we'll leave the grill on!
