“Consistently good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

This is one of our favorite places during our family's yearly trip to Door County. We usually go here for a great lunch. Soups, rings, burgers, and fish have all been consistently good. One of the better vacation atmospheres - bright, open, fresh as well as a big bar and outside seating if you want.

This year we tried it for dinner and had one of the best meals ever in the Door. The whitefish was clearly the best ever had by any of us. The walleye was a close second. Four of our family had the chicken pot pie. Each entrée was enough for two and with light crust and a perfect mix of vegetables and chicken it was the hit of the evening for our eleven adults. The steaks and beef stroganoff were good for our heavy hitters.

The children's table (aged 19-26) attacked the desert menu with great gusto and tried five of the choices. There was not a crumb left.

In short, dinner at the Summertime was great and we will be back.

“Wonderful quaint place to enjoy a meal!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

This is a great place for a sandwich. We enjoyed a late lunch after a day of touring and cherry picking. They have a very nice selection.,I chose the tuna melt which was crispy golden on the outside and the tuna salad was very nicely mixed, with a tomato and cheese to top it off. It is served with a pickle and chips (or slaw, fries, or cottage cheese). My husband had a delicious burger with fries. It was done perfectly. It was a great meal and the prices were typical for door County. The only reason they get a 4 and not a 5 was that my husband"'so fries were forgotten and he had to wait for them. Our waiter (Tyler?) was great. The decor is also very pleasant and you can watch the foot traffic out the windows. We'll be back.

“Nice patio great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

We ate a late dinner on the patio. Food: perch, chicken pot pie and specialty burger along with chicken soup were all very good. The fish was a tad greasy. The burger and fries were awesome, the soup and chicken pot pie were great. The patio needed a sweeping, but it is a patio. The bar looked nice, we could hear cocktails being mixed, and many people had wine-looked like a fun place to stop for a drink after a day shopping or exploring. Our waiter was great. We will be back on our next trip.

“Good food, but staff need more training”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

My husband and I had lunch here while on a mini-vacation to Door County. We were seated quickly, but then had quite a wait until a seemingly shy and apologetic young man came to take our order. He did not seem very comfortable being a waiter. The food was good, but rather long in getting it. The young man forgot my chips with my sandwich and later brought them on a separate plate. Not a big deal, but just another indication that the summer help needed a little bit more training.

“Great Service & Atmosphere, Below Average Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

Stopped in for a quick lunch, the service was friendly and fast, the restaurant clean and cute. That said, the fish & chips my husband had were of the frozen variety at best and the lobster crab roll I had was bland and seemed like it was from a can. Really disappointing and over priced meal. I would pass on the food but maybe stop in again for a beer or cocktail.
