We really like the location and having a bottle of wine on the upstairs patio. Great view of Fish Creek and visitors below. Be sure to try the turkey cherry chutney sandwich... one of our favorites and get a jar to take home with you!...More

Loved our visit here, looking forward to returning many more times. We had eggplant fries (wonderful), a burger, a half chicken meal and some great wine and beer options. The food was great. Lots of fish options. It's a must visit in Door County.

Food came amazingly fast. Fish was slightly overcooked/dry. Pork chop was cooked perfectly. Baked potato was slightly undercooked and hard

Great place for a wonderful breakfast. and very popular destination for many. Food was terrific and had many made-on-the-premises items. Think other meals would be just as good.

My friend and I shared our meals. Best fish tacos we have ever eaten! The turkey sandwich with cherry chutney and avocado on granola bread was unique and delicious. Waitress was just okay. We sat outside and we had a slight view of the water....More

I had an omelet and my husband had his favorite corned beef hash with a couple poached eggs on top. We both were more than pleased. They even made my hash browns crispy as I asked. It is a wonderful place with inside and outside...More
