There are so many excellent restaurants in Door County. We like to try a few new ones each year as well as revisit favorites. For breakfast, we love the White Gull Inn in Fish Creek. Famous for their cherry stuffed French toast, I particularly like the hash browns.
The Blue Horse Café directly in front of our cottage has a great view, delicious coffee, tasty sandwiches and bakery items. We eat here often.
Macready Artisan Bread Company in Egg Harbor is a new place for us. The sandwiches and breads are soooooo good. It is a must stop.
The Bayside Tavern in Fish Creek is just right up the street from where we stay. Since we usually arrive late afternoon, it’s the perfect place to have a burger and beer. Our favorites are the cheeseburger with fries and the Rueben sandwich. We also met our friends here when they arrived.
We were delighted to dine at the new location in Sister Bay of an old favorite, Chop. The steaks are flawless and the carrot cake? You will never have better. They also have an Early Dining Menu for three courses at a bargain price. We brought our friends back here later.
Pasta Vino, an Italian restaurant owned by the same family as the Chop and Lure, was a new experience this year. It relocated from Baileys Harbor to Sister Bay into the building previously occupied by the Chop. The chicken parmesan was delish.
Our favorite for 2017 though was the Glidden Lodge in Sturgeon Bay.
It had everything: cozy atmosphere, a view, great food, reasonable price, and impeccable service.
Soup and salad bar are included with every entrée and specials are available in addition to the menu. The filet mignon was superb.
Lure in Sister Bay is our seafood place.
Cocktail are a delight too.
Whifefish almondine is a fave although the menu includes chicken and steak dishes. Like its sister restaurants, Chop and Pasta Vino, early bird dining is available.
We were able to meet our friends, Larry and Mary Lauber at the Coyote Roadhouse on Kangaroo Lake near Baileys Harbor for dinner one evening. We have stopped here on numerous occasions for refreshments and food. We recommend cheeseburgers, reubens, and the ribs so far. LOL.
Our last night we caught a burger and a basket at Wilson’s in Ephraim. We have been here often for their root beer floats. Since we still had to pack for the journey home, we stopped in for a quick bite.
There are some we didn’t have time to revisit such as the Harbor Grille here and many more we have yet to try… Shoreline, Fireside, Bier Zot, you are on our list. ~ Indy and Lucy’s Mom #inmyhumbleopinion #wimpymustbemymiddlename #hamburgersrule
