My family & I recently enjoyed a superb experience at Whistling Straits restaurant. We dined on one of the last evenings of their season, as they close until late spring. We had stopped by the previous night, to check out the restaurant. As it was evening in December, with a bit of snow in the mix, more driveway lighting would... More

We went there with two couples. Very expensive for poor quality food preparation. Perkins would have been a better choice. The brussel sprouts were undercooked, hard and actually raw. The mashed potatoes seemed like they were made earlier and microwaved on our plates. The rolls and bread were hard and dry. The tenderloin steak was ordered medium but there was... More

After driving through the weaving road at the entrance of the course, excitement builds rapidly! As you approach, you can't help to wonder if there's a castle you are entering or a restaurant? Majestic aura of this place of beauty. Upon entering through the Immense doors, there is a wonderful and very well merchandised pro shop to the right with... More

It's Whistling Straits, so I had high expectation - was not disappointed. Staff was 5 star, food exceptional, including appetizers, and a fantastic wine by the glass options. Cookies for dessert from the course are homemade!!!!!

Well - we've dined at the positively incredible and unique Whistling Straits many times over many years. Sometimes while staying at The American Club and sometimes while passing through from St. Louis to Door County. (Please see my past reviews of both). This time, going the other way, we made the side trip to WS on an incredibly misty, foggy... More

We had a window table that gives you a great view of The Straits 18th hole. The food was good, but not excellent. I had a July 4th rib special, that really wasn't that special.

We spent several hours enjoying lunch at Whistling Straits. The food was very good and the service was top notch. The scenery was outstanding. Watching the foursomes playing #9 and #18 was fun. Some serious hacking going on out there. It was an enjoyable and relaxing afternoon.
