The food was very good & the service also. We had a shopping show certificate, but we were one day late & because the owner was not there, waitress would not honor. I understand we were late & she has her orders, but one day?

Food is consistently good. Staff is always pleasant and helpful. Bathrooms clean. Last visit there, they even walked our IPad down the street to us when we forgot it there. CLASS ACT! We will return every time we are in Door County.

If you're looking for a place for a quick bite after golf or touring the county, you have to try Van's. Every trip to Door County will include a trip here. Nothing fancy but good food. Worth the stop !! Enjoy !!
