We have always had great breakfasts, lunches and dinners here. The servers are all very friendly. Wee Wick and Angie and Dave have been here a long time. Joan the hostess , RIP, was there so many years since we have visited here since 2001. Always a pleasant visit every year.

Tell me - what's not to love - Atmosphere, Service, Music, Wonderful Food and a Great Setting! Our Special Meal Location in All of Door County! Even when there is a wait for Brunch - it's well worth it! Plan your trip with at least one meal at the White Gull Inn... and their Fish Boil is Outstanding!

The best breakfast ever! Always a must stop when we're in Door County. My favorite is the stuffed French toast.

My friend and I just wanted to enjoy a dinner here, at this classic place in Door County. After touring the peninsula we arrived and wanted a reservation and the realized we'd arrived in the perfect time to join in the Fish Boil, which happens several nights during the week. We joined others in the back patio area for a... More

We loved it here and will be back every trip to Door County! Lovely ambiance, gardens, great service, it was all here. My husband had the stuffed french toast with cherries and cheese . Huge serving so would recommend the half portion. He felt he had to try it since it was their specialty . Very good but rich. I... More

The White Gull Inn is always a special part of our time in Door Co. We usually go there for their breakfasts, which offer omelets, stuffed cherry french toast, and dozens of other options, all of which are delicious. My wife loves their granola so much she bought their cookbook so she could make it herself at home.

We ate here decades ago on our honeymoon. We came for breakfast and were not disappointed. I had the Door County Cherry Stuffed French Toast. It was a very large platter of goodness. It is worth the extra charge to get additional cherries, because, after all, it is all about the Door County cherries. My husband had the Door County... More

The White Gull Inn needs no further comment, except to say that is the best overall restaurant, year around, spring, summer, fall and especially, winter. Breakfast, lunch and dinner, it is the best. Amen!

Come midweek or early for breakfast or away from typical mealtimes to walk right in or have a shorter wait for a table. The food is so good it's worth a long wait (They give you a pager so you can wander around) but I am impatient so I try to come at times that will minimize the wait.

This was a repeat visit to the White Gull Inn. We have been there for breakfast and dinner multiple times. It's in a very old house and it is kept in museum condition for being a working restaurant and inn. The staff and servers are always friendly and welcoming. The food is always excellent and plentiful.

Thank Tom P
