“Charming Setting, Good Food”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

Not fast food, but great food worth waiting for. My wife and I both ordered burgers and as burgers go, they both scored 10. Onion rings were very good as well. We sat on a picnic table on a perfect day and really absorbed Washington Island. Staff is very friendly.

“Best burger I've had in Door County”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Talk about a deliciously juicy burger... oh my... we waited about 10 minutes for our food and it was SO worth it. Best burger by far that we have had in Door County. We would go back to Washington Island just for the burger...

“Great American Food”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

Hefty portions, great food, and excellent deserts. Prices appear high until the food comes out - at which point, it's clear they are very reasonable. Wait times can be long, but the pace of life is simply slower everywhere on the island, and the food is definitely worth it. Open late during the summer.

“Plain Old Ice Cream”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

Alby's, as it's referred to by locals, serves up burgers that sounded delicious, but we had already eaten. We stopped there shortly before leaving the island for some ice cream which sounded really good at the time.

I got just a simple strawberry shake and with the $6.50 it cost me, I was expecting something spectacular so was disappointed when it tasted just like the same old shake you'd get at McDonald's. I love ice cream, but there was nothing about this ice cream that justified paying $6.50.

“Don't let the prices scare you”
Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

The menu may come off as a bit pricey, but let's face it, you're on an island! For what you pay the food quality is WELL worth it. Premium burgers and hot dogs!
