It was our first time here, and we thought it would just be a small bar, but were delighted at the type of fare they served. We had a superb steak with blue cheese and portabello mushrooms! It took a bit longer to be served...More

The food was overpriced, but that was not the problem. The food was the problem. The service was good as well as attentive.

We have eaten here a few times over this past summer and have never been disappointed. My husband has a gluten allergy and Chef Drew is more than accommodating. He makes every dish to order. A must visit if you're in the Door County area.

The food was good, I was just surprised that they had not received their liquor license yet, even though their was mixed drinks on the menu. After traveling 4-5 hours to Sturgeon Bay I was looking forward to having a mixed drink.

Chosen by a drive by, this was an excellent choice. Most friendly welcome by Stevie, bartender host and server. Food was amazing. When I am back within 50 miles, I will be there.

This restaraunt was amazing, and the Chef and Owner are great! We were so appreciative of being served late night, as I had been under the weather all day and needed something that was good quality and not fried. We were so happy to have...More

Located in downtown Sturgeon Bay on Historic Third Avenue in beautiful Door County, Wisconsin. Choose to dine at the bar, at a bistro table along the sidewalk or relax on a cushioned chair in the cozy wood floor dining room. Large photos focusing on the history of Sturgeon Bay pepper the restaurant. The new chef has a strong bent on creativity and local sourcing. His philosophy for features is "Familiar enough to be comfortable but exotic enough to be exciting." The focus is on local and fresh (organic features, and appetizers, in season) is apparent, and when blended with the passion of the staff, it is becoming a foodie destination. We will work with any and all dietary restrictions or food allergies. Ask about "Chefs Choice" options. Call for reservations or a chef consultation for that special occasion.
