Crate opened January 28, 2016, and features a menu which includes sushi, sashimi/nigiri on one side & appetizers & more traditional entrees on the other side. They've changed the decor to make it more of a rustic, upscale "fish" theme, with crates on the walls...More

Unfortunate news that 136 Restaurant has closed and not just for the season. We'll miss the great food, super service and comfortable ambiance.

Food in Door County often includes prime rib, fried perch, fish boils, and brats. This is a welcome change. House salad is delicious! Loved the mini $2 cupcake desserts. Just a bite off sweet was all I wanted or needed.
