Doesn't matter if it's summer or winter this place is always crowded. This also means that parking can be challenging especially during the winter months. The food here is excellent and the menu and atmosphere leans to upscale.

We loved this place! (We had breakfast here, but did not stay at the Inn.) We all had the award winning cherry french toast, and wow, was that good! I can certainly see why this won a recipe award. The restaurant seating was comfortable, the place was tastefully decorated and it had a peaceful atmosphere. The wait staff was pleasant... More

I enjoyed breakfast the next morning after the progressive dinner - a joint event with The Thorp House. Meals were superb. Atmosphere amazing. Only negative was the planned bonfire after the progressive dinner didn't happen. I was really looking forward to a very cold weather bonfire.

We have been coming to the "White Gull Inn" to eat for many years and never ever had a bad meal or bad experience. Their breakfasts are the absolute best but lunch and dinner are also wonderful and if you wish to experience Door County's famous Fish Boil this is the place to try it. The ambiance is what we...

We attended a fish boil for the first time with our 2 boys (4+5 years old). We arrived early to get a good seat for the fire. My wife and I both had a drink while we waited. The person attending to the fire and cooking the food was very nice and interacted with the kids a lot to keep... More

The dining room and surrounding area was inviting and warm. It was decorated for the holidays when we were there. The waitress was friendly and efficient. We loved the food and plan to go back for dinner before we leave the area.

Originally went to this very famous place for their award winning breakfast. Breakfast was awesome, bountiful and reasonably priced. We noticed a placard on the table which was advertising a traveling 5 course gourmet dinner which started with a horse drawn wagon ride to the Thorp Inn for appetizers and champagne. Then returning to the White Gull Inn for the... More
