The atmosphere has remained very nice even though they expanded quite a bit. The food was of a high quality, came out quickly, and tasted fantastic.

A great stop after an afternoon at the Peninsula State Park. Our group tried the Perch, walleye, whitefish and pork chop. All were delicious. Gluten and dairy free options were easily accommodated except for appetizers and desserts, which is not unusual. The cubre libra, local beer and cherry lemonade were fantastic. Be sure to read the history of the place... More

My husband and I loved this restaurant! We visited the restaurant several times during our 5-day stay in Fish Creek. I loved sitting upstairs on the balcony and enjoying an appetizer and a glass of wine. We also enjoyed an excellent dinner. The dishes were very appealing and tantalized the taste buds. Everything we tried was wonderfully prepared - quesadillas... More

At this point, I never make a trip to Door County without going to the Cookery. The food is always consistently delicious with changes in the menu occurring regularly. They have always had a tasty house-made potato salad as a consistent side dish. Eggplant fries are our favorite appetizer. Last time we ate up our first order so fast we... More

This place was very accommodating of a large group. We sat upstairs and it was a great view of downstairs restaurant and outside street and water. Homemade ginger ale was tasty and their food seemed made to order. I'd recommend this place to try and would come here again. I didn't get a chance to try their desserts so I... More

We've been a few times and always are so happy. It's light and really good fare w/out that heavy feeling. The atmosphere is great - casual but a bit upscale. The crabcakes were great and so was the salad. My kids had burgers which were also all thumbs up. The outside eating areas are really nice, the music (Frank Sinatra)... More

Everything was delicious and beautifully presented. The coffee was outstanding. Thanks to our great server, the cups were never empty. We had a little of everything on the menu from cherry pancakes to the eggs in whitefish gravy. Wonderful jams available for purchase also. We bought the cherry and the strawberry rhubarb.

I was recently vacationing in Door County, and I stopped in to The Cookery in Fish Creek for dinner on a Sunday night. I had just spent the day in Peninsula State Park, and I was looking to go somewhere in Fish Creek or Ephraim that I had never eaten at before. I was walking around in Fish Creek, and... More
