This place was amazing. The bartender waiter James was amazing. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Fish Creek. He made our night out a memorable one. The food was amazing and we got a table right by the fire place.

We went for a Valentines dinner on their casual Tuesday night. We were seated next to the pleasant wood fireplace by a hostess and waitress who gave us excellent attention throughout our dinner. The food was smaller plate size servings. We had the chicken liver pate (4 out of 5), lobster roll sliders (5), buffalo mac and cheese (3), sausage... More

Not getting your traditional Fish Boil here! Always fun creative menu items and a very knowledgeable and friendly staff to take care of you. I try to go every time I'm in Fish Creek along with getting a bowl of chili at Bayside Tavern!!

We got a table next to the warm fireplace and the restaurant was quaint and cozy. Our food was delicious and they offered a nice variety of appetizers and entrees. My ribeye steak was done perfectly.

I've been visiting Door County for 30 years and have never had a bad experience in a restaurant or hotel until visiting The Whistling Swan. There were perhaps six diners in the restaurant when I arrived, but they did seat me despite my lack of reservation. My waiter's attitude was so superior and condescending that I bolted from the restaurant... More

Absolutely love the interior and atmosphere at The Whistling Swan! The servers are extremely accommodating and James the bartender is beyond excellent! We had the deviled eggs and Pork Terrine for appetizers and both were spot on with flavors. We also had two desserts, both were amazing. We had the chocolate creme brûlée and the housemade cheddar cake donut. Try... More

We went to the Whistling Swan Restaurant for dinner and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere was lovely, it's inside of an old house. The staff was friendly and attentive and the food was amazing. We enjoyed ourselves (and the food!) very much. We would go back again!

We came to the Whistling Swan on a Saturday evening, around 7:15pm. It was just two adults, and we were given a wait time of about 45 minutes, or sooner if we chose to sit at the bar. We said we didn't mind sitting at the bar. We waited in the comfortable and cozy waiting area for about 10-15 minutes... More
