I've been coming to The Cookery my whole life. The food is always great and innovative (their take on biscuits and gravy with whitefish chowder is awesome!). And the pies. We got several to serve at our wedding. My favorite restaurant in Fish Creek!

on a girls weekend and decided to check this place for breakfast. Nice downtown location in Fish Creek, and the food and service were excellent. Try the mimosa's for a great start to your meal!

We hit the Cookery one evening for supper. The food was superb- lots of choices on the menu prepared well. The service was excellent. There is indoor and outdoor seating and the atmosphere is pleasant. Good wine list too!

I highly recommend the Cookery's homemade potato salad, also the whitefish chowder, or any of their soups, for that matter. It has been a family run affair for 40 years, and has consistently rated in the top 3 restaurants in all of Door County! With...More
