    The whole extended family is doing a trip up to Door County in a couple of weeks. We are staying at the Newport Resort in Egg Harbor and need some recommendations for pleace to eat.

    I did a seach and only found a couple of year old+ posts about the area and was hoping that we could get something more up-to-date. I know that we have dinner planned the first night at the Cookery and would like some more recommendations.

    A couple of the nights, we will be dining with little ones, and the others will be sans-little ones. If anyone has some can't miss places, let me know. We are not really into the fish boils, but would like some more innovative foods.

    Thanks....

    I really loved my recent trip to Door County. My reports may not be quite on point as I spent most of my time on Washington Island, but perhaps they will inspire you:

    Kevin,

    My family and I have rented houses in Door County quite a few times over the last 15 years. I'm sure you'll really enjoy it.

    Last year before we went up to spend a week in Bailey's Harbor, I printed out several pages from LTH and came across some great finds.

    The next time I go back up to the Door, I will definitely make it a point to go to the Mission Grille in Sister's Bay. We have friends who stop in every time they visit and absolutely love it. For your night without the kids I think it might be worth a shot.

    Enjoy!

    Just a quickie, at work and lunch break almost over...

    On a recent trip to Door county, the highlight of the weekend was a trip to Simon Creek Winery. It was a perfect day weather-wise, which helped. But they were celebrating and had great live music in the most bucolic setting. It was a delightful visit. I think the food offered was to celebrate an anniversary because I don't see how they could afford to share the free spread offered that day every day.

    After the tasting, I had a chance to chat with the founder, Tim Lawrie and his wonderful family. He signed some bottles and shared some stories.

    Also had a wonderful dinner at the Inn at Kristofer's
    734 Bay Shore Drive
    Sister Bay, Wisconsin

    They had live classical guitar music the night we were there for my birthday. Great wine list, food, service and a spectacular view.
    Both places are worth a visit.
