There are quite a few places that do traditional fish boils in Door County, but I can't imagine one that does it more elegantly than the White Gull. I am not a big fan of fish, but my husband is of Norwegian ancestry and we went mostly for him. I enjoyed the entire evening just as much as he did! I ate only a little fish, but the accompanying potatoes, breads, cole slaw and homemade cherry pie were so delicious I was very satisfied. The patio was a beautiful place to sit and watch the master boiler as he explained each step of the fish boil. The entire event was incredibly well handled by the wait staff and the dining room was comfortable and cheery. Our waitress even boned our fish for us! So glad we found the White Gull.
