We sat upstairs just before the end of happy hour. Our server was attentive and patient as this was our last night in Door County we wanted to linger over our last meal. We stared off with the smoked whitefish spread and it was delicious. We took our time drinking wine before ordering walleye for dinner. They had music this... More

We had dinner and wine here because we needed gluten-free options. We had the whitefish spread with gluten-free crackers, which was excellent. I had the stuffed pork chop for an entree; it was delicious. They delivered the wrong entree to my husband, but they gave him free soup and a free drink to make up for it. Excellent service and...

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.

Our new favorite restaurant. Fantastic breakfasts. And, the salted caramel ice cream is to die for. We ate here every day.

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 to a lovely dining experience. We were seated downstairs and things started going downhill when...

We have been coming here when visiting in Door County since 1978. Sometimes restaurants do not live up to one's memory. Not the case here. Delicious food and great atmosphere. The cherry apple salad was wonderful and the sandwich was fresh and tasty. Absolutely love this restaurant! When you in Door County, do whatever to eat here!!!!!!

I have dined at The Cookery over the years and something seems to have changed this year. Perhaps it is the supplier they are using for the food or different chefs. The setting is nice and the outdoor seating is comfortable. The whitefish chowder does not taste completely homemade but has a taste like they use some kind of base... More

Stopped in for a late lunch and were very pleased. We started with two bowls of the white fish chowder, it was good but not great. The chowder was really thick, tasty and had a lot of potatoes, although the fish was hard to find. We followed with the fish tacos, which were fantastic. The tacos included lake perch, creamy...

Stopped for a late lunch and enjoyed the experience. The upper floor of the restaurant is really the only part we saw, but it was done nicely, quite modern clean feel. We had a couple of drinks before lunch, the Bloody Mary's were wonderful, my husband enjoyed the beer selection. The food was good, not great unfortunately. We had checked... More
