Guest Reviews

Awesome fish boil. One of the few restaurants I will happily drive an hour and a half to eat at. An awesome show during the fish boil with great stories and drinks available. The giant fireball for the boil over is fun to watch and memorizes kids. After that you sit down to eat in a nice area, get prompt service, devour the delicious white fish, and finish it...See More

I don't know if I even have the words to describe how wonderful this place is. My sister and I have come up to Door County for a few times now, but this is the first time we've stayed at the White Gull.

This was probably one of the best breakfasts I’ve had. We had a cinnamon hazelnut coffee roast and got the stuffed French toast along with the Cherry Pancakes. Everything was delicious! Such a neat experience, and the environment was worth the wait. We had a 30 minute wait, but it was totally worth it.

What an incredible experience! The food was amazing. We definitely went overboard, but it was so worth it. They have been around so long that they have clearly perfected their recipes. Everything was 10 out of 10, just bring your appetite! And what ever the wait may be, I promise it's worth it

We knew this was a highly rated breakfast spot and we were not disappointed. Parking is a little challenging, but the wait to eat breakfast at 9am as only 10 minutes. Lovely decor; full, but not too noisy dining room. My husband had the classic French toast and I had the corned beef hash. Both were yummy...as was the peach coffee cake we shared. Great service, too.
