Visit Door County Wisconsin
Bennett Watt: Door County, a peninsula which is the northeast thumb of Wisconsin is one of those spectacular places that defies description while it captures your heart. Voted one of the ten best vacation spots in the country it’s a collection of quintessential small villages along the peninsula’s green bay to the west and Lake Michigan to the east.
Shops, inns and restaurants beautiful scenery uniquely Wisconsin yet reminiscent of New England. It’s a culture on and long the water over 300 miles of shoreline, fishing, sailing and boating all important elements to the region.
Bicycle trails have in routes, Lace Door County to challenge every level of skill and training from August beginner wheels to experience road racers or mountain bikers.
And Sister Bay is without question the most unique of the unique restaurants in Door County and for that matter Wisconsin.
Lars Johnson: We’ve been here since 1949 and we brought this building over from Norway in 1973 and we have grass on our roots and we have live goes crazy on our roots through the spring, summer, and fall months and they love to go. I think they’re intrigued by watching the people this as much as the people are intrigued about watching that. The only thing we have to do is we have to help the grass once in a while. We do pop the grass periodically with a lawnmower just to keep that unique look and realized that fertilize such you would your lawns so it’s not full of dandelions so with it.
The other thing that’s very unique about this restaurant is that we still do not operate with the computer in order to serve 3000 people a day you would think that it’s impossible. However everything is like a wheel and if one spoke is broken then the wheel doesn’t work and quite frankly we do everything based on memory and we have a reason for how we call things in, we write things and we don’t’ write anything down, everybody is responsible for something in the kitchen and computers will slow us down, believe it or not.
Bennett Watt: Just down the road in Fish Creek, the White Gull Inn is the oldest in the area catering to visitors since 1896. The inn has provided accommodations with character and unforgettable dining to generations of visitors here. Empty decorated room, suites and cottages are meticulously maintained many of which feature working fireplaces and double whirlpools.
Unique to the peninsula and first offered commercially here at the White Gull Inn the Door county’s famous fish boil.
Thomas Christianson: The fish we’re using area boilers like Michigan light fish. Fish Boiler started in Door County a little more than a hundred years ago and the past and efficient way of feeding people in lumber camp.
And in about 5:15 I put in the long handled basket all of famous for tonight’s first broiler and a low bigger princes all. The reason we have this oil it doesn’t make to your food taste salty. What it does is raise the specific gravity of the water then brings this spots and oils to the top then when I throw kerosene on the fire it super heats the water, the pots and oils that have come to the top then boil it over and you have a cleaner tasting fish.
Scott Kositzko: The Door County Fish Boil actually we claim that we are the first to do it and we are obviously but we started in 1959 they’ve been boiling fish that used to be a commercial fishing area till before it became a tourist industry and the local official when they started just doing the fish boils on the bowl and the great way to feed large group of people and quick control more time. The whole fish boil process takes approximately 30 minutes and you can see a group of people in that amount of time.
