A little wayside bar and grill, the Cabin is a real diamond in the rough! Excellent whitefish meal. The biscuits are homemade and to die for. Save room for the out of this world homemade 3 apple bread pudding a la mode. The atmosphere is...More

Once again, great food, great service, we have yet to be disappointed when dining at the Cabin. My husband ordered their fried chicken, which he really liked. (They bread and fry fresh chicken, no frozen precooked just heat it up product here, said our server!)....More

Our first night in Sturgeon Bay, we ate at The Cabin, which happened to be close to our resort. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but the food was so great! My husband ordered fish and chips, and I ordered smothered chicken. Both...More

Excellent food and service! Beef barley soup, grilled chicken sandwich, broasted chicken, fresh homemade chips, slightly sweet coleslaw and warm homemade apple pie with whipped cream were perfect on this cool rainy fall day. All food was made from scratch. Friendly waitress gave us the...More

We enjoyed our meal at The Cabin. I had shrimp tempura which was excellent and the homemade rolls are to die for! We also had an excellent server, Dori - she was fun, attentive, and at the top of her game!

Stopped in for the fish fry. Sat at the bar for a drink. Watched what appeared to be the chef and possibly the owner come out and do a shot during dinner service. No too professional. Sat down and our waitress came over. She asked...More

This spot is sweet. The fish is fantastic and the atmosphere is perfect for Door County. Cheese curd burger is enough to fill up anyone with a big appetite. Packer games on TVs as well. Free shots when they score. I'll definitely be back.

Driving by, it may not look like much is going on, but walk in the door and you'll find our original knotty pine walls and bar (that date back to the 1930s), friendly faces, and a menu that the locals keep coming back for. We don't do things too fancy, or too crazy, but we put a lot of effort into making sure your meal is fresh and delicious and (with the exception of, say, quinoa) pronounceable! The local perch is always a hit, but try our excellent chicken, shrimp, steaks, and other favorites! Oh, and save room for our homemade dessert-- it's always scratchmade and usually heavenly!
