Door County Restaurants Opening in 2017


Serendipity (formerly Trio Restaurant), Egg Harbor

This restaurant just steps from the inn will feature locally-sourced ingredients with a chef-inspired menu. They take organic, farm-fresh ingredients and use them as the basis for their from-scratch menu, featuring sustainable seafood and grass fed beef.

Serendipity Egg Harbor, Door County restaurants

Taking a sneak peak at the menu it looks absolutely delicious. We can’t wait to try it out.

Door Artisan Cheese Company

Just a half mile from the Inn, Door Artesian Cheese is an exceptional addition to Egg Harbor and will also be housing Cave Market and Glacier Ledge Restaurant.

This makes Egg Harbor a true cheese-lover’s destination with three artisan cheese shops calling the town and village home.

Chop Sister Bay Restaurant location

If you’ve driven through Sister Bay lately you can’t miss the new home of CHOP, the steakhouse that has wowed diners at the top of the hill for five years. The new home will feature an expansive upstairs patio, two bars, and the steaks and seafood they’ve been known for for years.


Boathouse on the Bay (formerly Inn at Kristofers), Sister Bay
Boathouse by the bay Sister Bay

Another new Sister Bay restaurant currently undergoing renovations, Boathouse will feature an upstairs patio and bar overlooking the marina. This restaurant comes from old Door County blood. Mike Daubner, who grew up in the kitchen of the Sister Bay Bowl, branches out on his own in 2017. We’re excited for the east coast style he’ll offer here.

Door County Brewery (new location), Baileys Harbor

Door County Brewing Co. Baileys Harbor

What?!? They just built their first location!

Yes sir, but they outgrew it and this summer will open a much larger facility with more room to brew on-site. After seeing what they did with the old feed mill, we can’t wait to see what they do with their second turn at building a taproom and brewery. Cheers!

Opening: End of June 2017
