We love the Old Post Office for their amazing breakfast and the incredible view! Our kids got hot chocolate as a special treat with their meal and the server came back twice to top off their whipped cream. I think that was the highlight of our whole trip - they're still talking about it. 😊 Great place!

Don't waste your time trying other restaurants fish boils. We have been coming to a Door County for more than 25 years, yes we've tried some other places and have always been disappointed. Let's be honest here. We're talking about food and the Old Post Office has the best fish (and the most) and the cherry pie (ala mode) is... More

Cute little local place to experience a Door County Fish Boil. They boil master does a great job, explaining the history, and process of the boil as he completes it. Service is very friendly, and the pie and custard dessert is delicious!

We love this place! The fish boil is so fun and very well run. The people doing the boil give a great history lesson, and the food is tasty with an excellent choice of sides. Very enjoyable experience.

We attended the fish boil, a Scandinavian tradition, in the fall. The meal is preceded by a 20-30 minute talk by the boil master outside around the fire while your meal is being cooked. He shares information about the fish boil and the history of Door County and the restaurant, while folks sit on benches and can purchase wine or... More

Early morning breakfast always a delight. The eggs Benedict & Omelet were simply delicious. Herb teas upon request. Quiet atmosphere, polite wait staff. The Old P.O. has a unique atmosphere that adds an ambiance that takes you back in time. There is a charming history to this place and their menu items are delicious. Will certainly be back when in...

Food was great. Space was OK. But the part I didn't like was that they made you wait outside on the porch for a table. I get that there isn't much room inside to wait BUT waiting on an open porch when the weather is bad wouldn't work for me. So, for that reason; I would only go there on... More
