“Lovely view, but......”
Reviewed 1 August 2013 via mobile

The dining room looks out onto the bay, and there is a jazz band playing every night. My husband and I both got the pan fried walleye, and it was excellent. The sides were not good at all. The restaurant is very hard to describe, and is from another era.

“Best view in Door County!”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

We have eaten at the Hof twice in the last few weeks. We go back for the pan fried walleye which is some of the best I've had up here, the live music, and the spectacular view of the bay. The restaurant and resort are very nostalgic in feel (think Dirty Dancing) and on Saturday night they have live music of old standards which has been great. My son got the German platter and enjoyed everything on the plate. We have had no problem with the service (in fact, we delayed ordering our meal last time because they had brought it out so fast the week before.)

“Eat on the deck outside for lunch instead of the HOF.”
Reviewed 13 July 2013

Just outside the HOF - there is a deck with a great view of Egg Harbor. A guy was out there BQ hamburgers, hotdogs and brats. The meal was great. The guy was friendly. The view was great. And the best part - the food was cheap. if you want to - you can order drinks too.

“Great German food at the HOF Restaurant”
Reviewed 5 April 2013

Try the Schnitzel. It's out of this world! The staff is very friendly and helpful. This restaurant has a fantastic view of the water. And there was live music during our dinner.

“dont be fooled”
Reviewed 3 October 2012

group of 9 and only one enjoyed their food. prices were a bit high for the quality of food. 3.25 for a glass of chocolate milk...? 3 dollars to add 3 microwaved sausages to a french toast meal.... then the french toast wasn't done on inside, gooey. omelette not fully cooked and came out cold. toast was also cold and over done. Service was poor. Waitress seemed to be bothered by our presence and wouldn't split the bills up separate without forcing a 2 dollar fee per bill. She never once smiled and had stains on her belly. never again. Breakfast food is the simplest of all and they couldnt even get that right.
