We love to bike or hike at Peninsula State Park outside Fish Creek, and afterward there is no better place to chill out than the upper deck at The Cookery. It is a favorite for grabbing a light bite to eat and a glass or two of wine, while watching the world go by down below. There are heaters for... More

Near everything in Fish Creek, very good food. They have pies to take home and you can eat inside or on the porch

In our first trip to Door County, we tried The Cookery for breakfast and had to go back a second day. We had the pancakes in the picture. The order was big enough to share. Purchased jars of the cherries to try to relive the delicious breakfast when we returned home.

Great place. I was a little shocked. The atmosphere I was expecting was more of bistro/wine bar...but it seemed more like a really nice cafe. I guess there's a wine bar somewhere...but I didn't get there...bummer.

Went for dinner and had good service. Seated rather quickly foe a Saturday night. However, the 1/2 chicken dish was very inconsistent. On two prior visits, we saw the dish with a mixed vegetable medley, a beautifully golden 1/2 chicken on a bed of mashed potatoes. We decided to order it this time. Though the chicken was cooked thoroughly, it... More

We've dined at the Cookery for brunch/lunch over many years, since before they built the new much larger space and expanded the menu. The food has always been fresh and very tasty. We miss the cozier atmosphere of the original restaurant, but the new large airy spaces are brighter and there is more room between the tables. The Cookery is... More

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
