Amazing food. The perfect place to get breakfast in Door County. We were there in October and if we arrived around 9 we got seated right away, but around 9:30 or 10 the line starts forming.

We had breakfast the first morning of our stay in the area and it was so good, we had lunch there before we left for home. They use the freshest ingredients and offer wholesome, delicious fare. Can't wait to try dinner!

Great food- nice location. Needs a little better servers. They seemed very rushed and it wasn't busy. They ran out of the breakfast pototos never came and told us just gave us something different. That isn't good.

Went here with husband today and was looking for a place that would have a light lunch. Upon first walking in, we were offered seating either downstairs in the restaurant or upstairs in the winery. The winery had a live music group playing upstairs though and they would have been quite loud. We chose to eat on the main level... More

Came here for lunch while in Fish Creek. Good menu selection, enjoyed my perch sandwich. Good kids menu if thinking about coming with kids. Good atmosphere for families and kids. Wine bar upstairs looks like a fun place (without kids :)

We had a nice lunch visit at the Cookery. The food was very nice and we had very tasty home made ginger ale and cherry lemonade. The food was very good. Freshly prepared and not simple food you could do better yourself.

We sat upstairs just before the end of happy hour. Our server was attentive and patient as this was our last night in Door County we wanted to linger over our last meal. We stared off with the smoked whitefish spread and it was delicious. We took our time drinking wine before ordering walleye for dinner. They had music this... More

We had dinner and wine here because we needed gluten-free options. We had the whitefish spread with gluten-free crackers, which was excellent. I had the stuffed pork chop for an entree; it was delicious. They delivered the wrong entree to my husband, but they gave him free soup and a free drink to make up for it. Excellent service and...

We have been here a number of times and it has been a good experience. Must have caught them on a bad day, food and service was nothing special. There are so many good options is Door County, it pays to keep quality up.
