We were in Door doing some genealogy and needed to get some dinner. Many places close for the winter, so it can be hard finding someone open for lunch. Luckily, The Chef's Hat was open. The waitress was very nice and patient with us as this was our first visit. We started with the bruschetta, which was different than any... More

Had dinner here in October. My husband had the beef brisket - which he loved. I had tilapia and it was delicious. 2nd time eating here and have yet to be disappointed! Nice quaint atmosphere, service was excellent.

The charm of this restaurant was the first thing we noticed when we walked in. The food was amazing! We both had a breakfast wrap, scones, and a fruit cup! Will definitely go back when we return. We both highly recommend this place!

We had heard about this restaurant and we were disappointed when we found out that they changed to weekends only after November 1, our arrival date. But, we were able to enjoy a wonderful breakfast on Friday the 4th; and we enjoyed it so much we came back for dinner that evening. Rocky is the server and very knowledgeable, courteous... More

A few of us stopped here to have a drink so we could decide what to do with the rest of our day. Wish we didn't already have dinner plans . After looking over their menu, it was very tempting to eat there.

But nice menu, friendly staff, and good hours. We were here in the off season and most of the places were closed; but this place was open.

I love love love breakfast! Eggs, bacon and all the lovelyness of fresh ingredients. So I was excited to try this place. The staff are great, very friendly. The decor is pretty basic, unimpressive (one star gone) but functional/clean. I ordered scrambled eggs, breakfast potatoes, with a side of bacon. Now I like my scrambled eggs light and fluffy and...

We were blown away by the sandwiches we had. All of the meet is grown locally, and is organic. The service was great also. My wife, daughter and I purchased 2 smoothies for the 3 of us. They split them 3 ways and gave us extra. The soup was also great.

We had breakfast on our first stay in Door County, nearby. The service was very friendly and attentive, and the food was very good. Restaurant is right in the middle of town and across from the water. Scrambles were very flavorful and so were the belgian waffles. We would go back.
