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

Had dinner here one night. we sat outside on the upper deck. Great people watching spot. The food was really good. I had the BBQ pork and my spouse had a huge salad with dried cherries, walnuts and goat cheese. Would definitely go back.

We had such a great time at this little place. Our waiter, Ryan was extremely informative, but even more than that, he was entertaining. The food was amazing, especially the dessert. When they came out, it made one of our daughters cry a little.

We have been here for breakfast four or five times now and can say that the dishes we have tried are tasty and well proportioned. Service is prompt and courteous, and prices are reasonable. In the afternoon, the second floor wine bar is a great place to relax, especially on a nice warm day out on the balcony overlooking downtown... More

Loved the various entry choices of pancakes and french toast smothered with the incomparable fresh Door County cherries. It can be a little hard to get into during the busy season but we feel the atmosphere and food were so good that it is worth the wait.

They bake their our bread. They make/bake their our deserts. They shave their own meats. They use local farm-to-market veggies. Gluten free? Yes. Veggie meals? Yes. Service and staff was wonderful. Prices are a tiny bit high but worth every penny. Go. Eat, Enjoy!

The Cookery is always a must go to restaurant when we visit Door County, Wis. They have so many items on their menu that are wonderful but, we absolutely love their Whitefish Chowder! Always a must have before our entrée.
