We stopped for breakfast. It was charming, historic, had a beautiful view and delicious food. We ordered a bit of everything. An omelette filled with fresh veggies & cheese, pancakes & cheesy hash browns. It was all very good! Service was great as well!

Cute little local place to experience a Door County Fish Boil. They boil master does a great job, explaining the history, and process of the boil as he completes it. Service is very friendly, and the pie and custard dessert is delicious!

We love this place! The fish boil is so fun and very well run. The people doing the boil give a great history lesson, and the food is tasty with an excellent choice of sides. Very enjoyable experience.
