Great quality food and fun outside dining. Fantastic burgers, brats, and ice creams! Jukebox adds to a fun atmosphere plus you can enjoy a cold beer and just relax. It can get pretty busy anytime during the day and evening but it certainly is worth...More

My family and I visited Albatross while we were visiting the island. I love that they are honest that they aren't fast and aren't tacky. You get what you get, and what you get is some damn good food and ice cream! Love the atsmophere!

This is one of the only places to get ice cream on the island. It is a bit pricy $6 for an ice cream cone, $7 for a Turtle Sundae, but very tasty! There's a pavilion attached to sit under in case of rain.

We wanted a simple lunch and a beer and the albatross was perfect. Super good hot fudge sundae, hamburgers, and door county brews. Nice garden area in the "tension free" zone.

This is as close to "fast food" as you will get on the slow-paced Washington Island. "We're not fast, but we're good" is the motto of this burger and ice cream place. Try it, you'll like it - after a brief wait.

This is me and my kids favorite place to eat. Very good food but also room for the kids to play while your waiting for your food. Also my wife loved the new tiki bar

Hamburgers, malts, and onion rings are superb and very much well worth the wait. Love the ambiance of sitting outside; listening to the jukebox; eating the delicious food. Very relaxing and actually memorable.
