We went inside to ask if we could sit outside because we had our dog with us and were told no outside seating was available by an extremely rude waitress who barely answered our question before walking away. Then we were told there was 1 table left and that there was another "tour" coming through (which I don't know what... More

I had the perch dinner and it seems the lake ran out of perch. the serving was quite meager. Order the whitefish, that was the better choice.

So I LOVE their Danish pancakes. They put REAL apples and cinnamon on them, not apple pie filling. My kids enjoy eating and looking out over the harbor too.

Went here with my family and the service was terrible. We were the only ones there and were only spoken to once. The hot chocolate was sub par and two other things we ordered were sold out. The cookies could have been used as frisbees because they were so hard. Very disappointed in the rude service. Wanted to leave without... More

Our family group of 19 had a very nice lunch meal at the Ship's Wheel Restaurant. We had just arrived via the ferry and was referred to the restaurant by the owner of the Island Pizza Restaurant (they only had outside seating). The Ship's Wheel had a varied menu and everyone found something to their liking. We sat at different... More

After reading a few reviews I was kind of hesitant to eat here. We came in for breakfast while waiting for our ferry. Maybe it was because we came in as a large group and the employees and owners knew some people in our group but our experience overall wasn't too bad to just OK. Food quality was decent. I... More

My wife and I arrived on Washington island while enjoying a vacation in Door County, and rather than bring our vehicle we opted to just pay for passenger tickets on the ferry then take a guided island tour. As it worked out we ended up arriving with about an hour before our tour, but it was about noon so we... More
