Bad dog had wonderful customer service. The sandwiches were large and filled with quality meats, cheeses and produce. You can sit on the deck with your favorite pet, as well.

Bad dog is a small restaurant attached to the Peninsula Grill, just a little more casual. They have great sandwiches. They also have local wines and other snacks and soup.

As part of my winery tour, I had lunch provided by Bad Dog. Yummy turkey sandwich, chips, HUGE chocolate chip cookie, & bottled water. Enjoyed eating alfresco at Bowers Harbor Winery.

Perched about half way up the Old Missin peninsula, the Deli is in a great spot to get a quick bite and rest from your wine tasting, bike ride or other recreational activities nearby. Great fresh made sandwich to order, condiments and non alcoholic drinks.

Terrific daily specials, but I've always chosen to "make my own". You take a menu and circle how you want it made. You get to choose any 2 meats, many options for bread, cheese, dressings and veggies. Quality ingredients and friendly service with a smile :D Arguably the best sandwich in town.

Great sandwiches and salads while visiting the lighthouse and peninsula wineries. Quick service, good food, reasonable prices. My nephew (not old enough for wine tasting) called this the best stop of the day. I recommend the Reuben. My nephew enjoyed the Italian.

My wife and I ordered a couple of sandwiches to go and ate them on one of the beaches. Very good food and the staff is very friendly. Even though they are Redwing fans, I had my Blackhawks shirt on so we had some nice conversations about hockey. You can eat in as well.
