Being the off-season we were able to book a reservation with relatively short notice. We shared the featured appetizer and each ordered an entree. My wife had the cioppino and I had the featured fish of the day. Both were outstanding. Finished off the evening with one of the featured deserts. A great evening - will definitely be back. And...

My wife and I received a gift certificate from our kids. GREAT food and wonderful atmosphere. I had cioppino and my wife had the special rib eye steak. Both were prepared perfectly and with gourmet-level sides. Will definately visit again!

Enjoyed a meal here with our daughter; Nick N. was an excellent server - we were impressed with the 'team approach of the experience' e.g. The bartender grabbed dirty plates when bringing our drinks. Enjoyed a flight of oysters, cheese plate, Caesar Salad, the fish of the day which was salmon, steak frites and Ravioli. All were very good except... More

Intrigued by the craft cocktail menu I saw online, I was intrigued and made it a point to dine here on our quick weekend. (It was the only place I really cared to check out this particular weekend, the rest of the meals, we just grabbed something wherever we ended up at that time.) The setting was very warm/cozy and...

We recently ate at Wickman House for dinner on our first trip to Door County. The setting of the restaurant is beautiful, set back in the woods, not far from the center of town, in a historic home. We sat in the porch area, viewing the outdoor fireplace. The drink menu was extensive with a very large craft cocktail list.... More

This place is fantastic! We drove up not knowing what to expect and we were excited to see a converted home that is now a great place to enjoy a drink and dinner. The mixologist's who made our drinks are awesome and the Old Fashions and Manhattans are out of this world.

We had the pork cops & the salmon stuffed trout - both were delicious. Great service in a handsome, historical farm house. We'll be back!

My husband and I had a wonderful dinner here on a Sunday evening in October. We had a reservation and were greeted with a smile and were immediately seated. Our waiter was knowledgeable and attentive. I had swordfish special and it was perfectly cooked. My husband had the evening special (ribs). He said they were great. It was a delightful... More

Seriously the best place in DC! We've been here twice and can't wait to go back. The atmosphere, food and drinks are perfect! Make sure you get reservations early. We did not and were lucky that we got there right when it opened and sat at the bar. The food is fresh and delicious. We had the miso buns, burger... More

This place has a stunning setting. It's a refurbished farmhouse and, whether you eat on the porch or inside, it will be one of your best experiences while in Door County! The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. The food is exquisite and the atmosphere is elegant, but welcoming! I will go there every time I visit Door County.

Description
Wickman House is located in a historic lodge in Ellison Bay, Door County. Offering sandwiches from Paying tribute to the property's original owners and namesake, this historical landmark was reborn as Wickman House in 2012. The renovation and design of the property are dedicated to restoring its history with an eclectic blend of original decor from the early 1920's. Also true to the property's original purpose: the restaurant's focus is on sustainable agriculture, featuring a menu inspired by fresh, seasonal ingredients sourced from local farms and gardens. Finally, the property's enhanced space strives to be a true gathering place, much like The Ellison Bay Lodge was nearly a century ago. The proprietors, chefs, and staff at Wickman House strive to provide their guests with the ultimate dining experience through professional service and the use of only fresh, sustainable foods. All seafood is humanely harvested and sustainably considered. Nearly all ingredients not arriving from the sea come from local Wisconsin farms, artisans, and growers. All baked goods, desserts, sauces, stocks, and soups are made in house from scratch, just the way the Wickman Family would have wanted.
