This is the best breakfast in the area, but it is small and you have to get there early or wait a while for a table.

Old Post Office has been a Tahoe locals favorite for years. You can't go wrong. In the summer you can eat outside and there's a peek of a lake view.

Very Door County with cherries everywhere and a full menu to please pretty much everyone. Food was decent.

Just absolutely nothing special about our visit. Not bad, just average. I hear their fish boil is fun but I can’t imaging coming back for it.

Experiencing the fish boil process was a real treat! The staff was accommodating, friendly and efficient, and the food was fresh and delicious. White fish, redskin potatoes, coleslaw, variety of sweetbreads, choice of drink and cherry pie with optional ice cream--can't be beat!!

They are using fresh catch fish. They buy fish whole and prepare it for cooking themselves. And it tastes the best! Storyteller is great and food was amazing!
