“Turned away”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

Went for lunch all the lower patio tables were reserved so sat on the upper patio. Went to the hostess and she said we couldn't sit there either they were going to set up for a band. We left and boated to another place and dropped $100. On our way back the tables were still empty and no band was set up. We have been here many times and never saw this very rude hostess before. Won't be going back any time soon. Obviously don't want our money.

“Opulent Surroundings but”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

The sprawling Stone Harbor Resort and Conference Center in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, looks palatial from the outside and within. It almost screams at you that it is expensive. Within its mawe is located the cavernous Stone Harbor Restaurant & Pub, with closeup views of the old iron bridge across a neck of Sturgeon Bay. Hence the views are relatively interesting, though nothing to write home about.

But I found the dining experience to be quite disappointing. The high price per meal charged is not reflected in what you actually get. A window seat helped alleviate things a little while waiting ... waiting for everything, including service that proved to be well below the standard one would expect in a resort like this. Indeed, it was probably below the standard of any self-respecting, old-fashioned diner.

Although the actual quality of the ingredients of the meals our party had was good, the quantity was sparse and hence disappointing. All in all it didn't float my boat, the restaurant sinking lower and lower in my opinion as time dragged on. I was glad to eventually get out of there.

“Good Food Bad Service”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

Had to wait to get seated. Saturday lunch. One hostess. Husband ordered grilled cheese and fries. I ordered house salad. Must have only had one cook and one waitress. Took 45 minutes to get food. Had a wedding to get ready for so took my salad to go. Husband had to eat alone and gobble his food down in 10 minutes so he could hurry to get ready for wedding too. Not a pleasant experience but food was fine.

“Nice view overlooking harbor and yachts”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

We ate here several times during our stay in Sturgeon Bay mainly because of convenience. We had a delightful server named Jamaica.

The view is nice overlooking the harbor and yachts.

“good restaurant”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

We ate here twice during our stay at the hotel; service was very good, as was the food. One meal was a quick late lunch, the other was a sitdown dinner.
