Love the Chef's Hat. Go often for Sunday breakfast. Great meal for the price with a beautiful view of the water. The place the locals dine

We went for breakfast. Every menu item looked appealing. Very cozy place with a great view of the water. Excellent service, great menu selection. Breakfast comes with toast or a scone. We got the scones. They were still warm from the oven. Just delicious. This place is a winner!

We have dined here a couple of times while on vacation in Door County. The food was excellent. We especially like the appetizers, like the stuffed pepperdew. We had never had that one before! Everything was tastefully presented with very bright and fresh flavors. We look forward to our next visit!

Breakfast on New Year's Day was at Chef's Hat. The owner was doing a little bit of everything (including dishes) because someone had called in sick - but everyone was working together and we had a great experience . And the food was delicious, too - thanks everyone!

We had never tried this place but I'm glad we did. After a heavy snow we decided to stick close to Ephraim and luckily this place was open! The sandwiches were delicious and I would happily come back! Thank you!

We were in Door doing some genealogy and needed to get some dinner. Many places close for the winter, so it can be hard finding someone open for lunch. Luckily, The Chef's Hat was open. The waitress was very nice and patient with us as this was our first visit. We started with the bruschetta, which was different than any... More

Had dinner here in October. My husband had the beef brisket - which he loved. I had tilapia and it was delicious. 2nd time eating here and have yet to be disappointed! Nice quaint atmosphere, service was excellent.

The charm of this restaurant was the first thing we noticed when we walked in. The food was amazing! We both had a breakfast wrap, scones, and a fruit cup! Will definitely go back when we return. We both highly recommend this place!

We had heard about this restaurant and we were disappointed when we found out that they changed to weekends only after November 1, our arrival date. But, we were able to enjoy a wonderful breakfast on Friday the 4th; and we enjoyed it so much we came back for dinner that evening. Rocky is the server and very knowledgeable, courteous... More
