Service was slow and there were only two other customers there. Food tasted like you were eating a piece of iron. Will never go back.

My spouse and I have eaten breakfast, lunch and dinner here so many times, that I have lost count. Going back at least 20 years, when we first spent an October weekend in the Door with six friends, we always piled into the Viking for one of the best, most generous, and one of the most reasonably priced breakfasts in...

Arriving here just before closing and were still invited in to dine. Daily special was Fried Perch, fries, cole slaw and a roll. It was also served with tartar sauce and a lemon wedge. Price was $15.50. This fish was very good and the rest was average. Not all you can eat, but still enough to eat. Thank you to... More

Lucky to be able to sit outside for lunch on a warm October day. All of us had the broasted chicken with all the trimmings. Great food and service. This is the home of the original fish boil.

Nice selection on the menu but pricey. It is Door County so you expect that. The outside is welcoming but the inside needs updating. A couple of the waitresses were nice but the one who showed us to our table must have been having a bad day. Food was tasty but one the forks we were given had dried food... More

When we walked in we were a little confused at first, we didn't know if we were supposed to seat ourselves or if we were supposed to wait for a server to seat us. In no time at all a busy server pointed us to a spot where we could sit. For a busy Saturday morning in a tourist destination... More

Our breakfast was great! Tried the corned beef and it was delicious! Service was attentive. Can handle tables aid 2 to 8 ... maybe even 10.

Don't go here. Our servers were so slow. They forgot our soda and then when asked for something else, we had to ask twice before we got up and went to the check out and they finally came through. They were NOT busy and the staff was just sitting around talking. The food wasn't great - I would have been... More

In planning our trip to DC, I had a list of "must tries" for breakfast. I did not have The Viking Grill" on my list - I had not heard of it. But, we drove up Hwy 42 one morning and discovered this on the side of the road and decided to give it a try. It was a very... More

The Viking Grill in Ellision Bay features affordable family favorites and our world-famous Viking Fish Boil! Enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner. Our buttermilk pancakes are light and fluffy, but our biggest secret is our outstanding Swedish pancakes (served all day). Try them- you won't be sorry! Another early morning favorite is our award winning homemade Corned Beef Hash. A great way to start a busy day on the Door peninsula. And whether you are looking for hearty or light The Viking Grill has something for you. Wrapped sandwiches, homesytle soups, a selection of 7 salads, and mouthwatering appetizers - perfect with a cold beer or cocktail from the bar. Dinner at The Viking means broasted chicken, Lake Perch, generously cut steaks and more. Come experience the Viking - we'll leave the grill on!
