We dined at The Cookery twice during our stay and were very happy with the food and service. Good mid-priced choices from simple sandwiches to scrumptious dinners. Their homemade desserts were yummy, especially the ginger cookies! They also offer homemade Ginger Ale, but be careful, it's made from fresh ginger. It was tasty, but packed a punch!

After arriving in Fish Creek, we asked the locals where to grab a bite for lunch. The Cookery was recommended a number of times and we were not disappointed. Our server was extremely helpful and friendly and the food was delicious. The next evening, we went to the upstairs bar/lounge and listened to folk singer Katie Dahl for 2 hours... More

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.
