Ate here for lunch not long after opening and recall a disappointingly standard menu of caesar, chef salad, sandwiches and the usual menu items. Ate tonight with my family (including 2 children) and was really impressed. Very attentive staff, accommodating to the kids wishes and...More

This place had great soup (butternut squash). The flatbread bbq chicken was great as well! We went during the week, so it wasn't very busy. I'm sure on the weekends it is much busier and noisy. The staff was friendly, but could've been a little...More

On one of the wettest weekends in Sturgeon Bay's history (3.0 inches), finally had lunch at John Martin's with a group of five. Am I glad we did. Menu has great Italian-American choices presented in contemporary treatments. Lite fare yet substantial on some items. Probably...More

We had the fig salad (yum) and peppercorn steak and whitefish and all were very good. We were pleased with our wine choices. Loved the velvet devil! And dessert and coffee rounded things out (including our bellies). Portion sizes were very appropriate. Definitely suggest this...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.
