Ashbrooke

Hotel | "The Ashbrooke"

Quote:
The Ashbrooke – a hotel of elegance, charm, and privacy. It doesn’t sound right to say “nestled on the busy street of Egg Harbor Rd," but this sophisticated hotel feels like a retreat in the woods the minute you step on its property. It’s distinct exclusive look may be a bit intimidating for those who usually do not stay in such class (such as my husband and I), but the warm welcome we not only received from the staff but fellow guests, made us feel completely comfortable.The Ashbrooke is located in Egg Harbor, one of the many touristy small towns in Door County.

Restaurant

You will find many quaint family-owned restaurants and cafés in Door County, it’s part of the charm and distinct experience you receive from visiting. However, Harbor Landing, a house turned café, was the highlight of our weekend experience.

It was the heartfelt greetings and sincere conversations we had with the wait staff/owners. They were genuinely glad you shared your vacation with them.

Trio

Restaurant

This chic yet casual bistro offers the elegance for a couple and a comfortable atmosphere for a family. It’s a great change from the usual vacation fast food, deli’s, and pubs to excellent food for a reasonable price. The menu houses a variety of pastas, fish, and meat dishes. They have a small but quality beer and wine list and their desserts, made fresh at the restaurant, are worth a try!

Gibraltar Grill

Restaurant | "Gilbraltar Grill"

Quote:
You can’t miss this restaurant driving on the busy Main Street of Fish Creek. It’s beautiful white painted wood with blue trim creates a family feel that you can’t help but want to stop and check out. It’s outside landscaped patio, equipped with a nice size bar, invites all to sit down, relax, and grab some grub before going back to your boat, beach, or shopping mayhem! A great menu full of specialties in steaks and fish all for an outstanding price! This is a great restaurant and is not to be missed!
