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.

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.

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!
