Must call ahead and make a reservation weeks before your visit. We called one week ahead so we were given 530. Table with window for sunset. Well worth it. Pricey but food was delicious. Wedge salad , Caesar salad, small plates and tenderloin. Yum. Beautiful...More

My wife and I have a house in Sturgeon Bay, and have been coming up to Door County since the '70s. For the first several of those years, the only fine dining in DC was the Sturgeon Bay Yacht Club and even better the Baileys...More
