First off, if you've never been to Whistling Straits, the parking can be a little bit confusing on the first visit and figuring out which building is the restaurant is a coin toss. Go for the larger building on the south! (there are no signs, in an effort to keep the purity and nature preserved)
We started out our anniversary experience with a bottle of wine in the restaurant courtyard and enjoyed great views of the golf course and Lake Michigan. After a couple glasses we went into the restuarant for dinner. We started out with salads (Bibb lettuce wedge salad for me, and my wife got the Market Greens Salad) and artisan breads which were excellent and not overly filling. We got the Scotch egg appetizer which was positively delightful, as well as the potato leek soup (which comes with a nice shot of sherry that you can mix in with it for a nice splash!). That got our appetites set for the main event!
For the main course I got the 7 oz Herb Grilled Beef Tenderloin with horseradish whipped potatoes, grilled asparagus, and red wine demi-glace. Every bite was pure perfection and I couldn't set my fork down till it was gone. The steak was done exactly to my liking.
My wife got the 14 oz Grilled Rib Eye Steak with roasted fingerling potatoes, creamed wild mushroom ragoût, caramelized shallot and cracked pepper butter. Another stunningly delicious meal, and again, done to perfection.
The wait staff was very professional and friendly, but they gave us plenty of personal space to enjoy the meal but were always nearby if we needed something.
One thing I've noticed about some of the negative reviews is people complaining about the price. Yes, it is expensive but you definitely get what you pay for here. Don't come to a PGA rated golf course and expect TGI Fridays prices. It is well worth the extra spend, in our opinion!
Whenever I make a review on TripAdvisor they ask me "is this one of the best meals you've ever had in a restaurant"? This is the first time I have answered "yes", because it was truly awesome. We feel lucky to live right here in Sheboygan with such a fine establishment nearby for special occasions.
Classic elegance and style we have come to expect from Kohler!
