This was our "splurge" dinner. The decor was welcoming and beautiful. We were seated by the warmth of the fireplace, a cozy spot on a rainy evening. The food was good---I should have asked a few more questions as the fish I was served was...More

A nice cozy place. I have had many happy memories there. I love the spinach salad with their delicious Hot Bacon dressing! Their Onion Soup is very good and cheesy. All their food is very good. I would recommend this restaurant.

We enjoyed the Thanksgiving buffet on our recent trip to Door County. Even though the restaurant was packed, we were able to sit down at our reservation time. There were plenty food choices and everyone in our group found their favorites.

Mary, was wonderful and helpful. Food and service was great. A one of a kind restaurant. My whitefish was moist and flavorful and my friend's prime rib was as good as it gets. A place not to miss in Door County.

We made a reservation but it actually wasn't necessary. You can probably just walk in. But you can easily call and ask if reservations are necessary. Some places you can't get into without one; this isn't one of them.
