“Best Place for a Glass of Wine in DC”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

My wife and I enjoyed a couple of glasses of vino and an appetizer I the 2nd floor balcony overlooking the Bay. We went during happy hour so the wine was priced low and as well as the app ( a very nice French onion dip with fresh cut chips).

Service was attentive and friendly, view was spectacular, the bill was reasonable, and the selection of wine was very nice (especially for the area, which I think features too many of the local wines which leave a lot to be desired for my palate).

I'm not sure why this doesn't rank as the best place to have a drink in Door County- it is in my opinion.

“Two Wonderful Meals”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

During a week in Door County, we had the opportunity to eat in many different restaurants,and this is one we chose to return to a second time. My favorite side dish was the Eggplant Fries! I love eggplant any which way, but had never had them as a substitute for the regular potato or sweet potato fries. Simply enchanting way to enjoy my favorite vegetable. The restaurant's menu is diverse and offers wonderful flavor combinations. They are also able to accommodate those who need gluten free foods.

“Fresh and delicious”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

This is the second time that we have had dinner here. Both meals were exceptional. The walleye was fresh and delicious. The Asian slaw was exceptional. My husband and the salmon which was also delicious. The kids' menu had some healthy options along with traditional "kid" items.

“Good breakfast with a nice menu.”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

Read the reviews about this place before we came to town. Wanted to check it out the wine bar at night and were pleased that we did. Went back for breakfast the next morning, the food was good, the service was pleasant. We left feeling satisfied and ready to explore the area.
