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 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.

After reading great reviews of this restaurant, we were very much looking forward to making this our "nice" dinner out for our two nights in Fish Creek. We sat at the upstairs bar while we waited for our table and admired the setting, looking forward...More
