Sturgeon Bay Things to Do

    Simon Creek Vineyard & Winery

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Nice tasting area, tour is nice. Both are free. Also a gift shop. Is worth a visit. This was the first winery I went to (have been to more now), so didn't have a comparison. But there was a lot crammed into the gift shop, the person that did the tastings was knowledgeable, the tour was detailed.

    Great place for wine tasting. Huge selection of samples, giant gift shop area, well done tour.All at a good price. This one is a must-see! Plus a distillery and restaurant. I can't believe I don't have any pictures of it - I'll need to go back!

    Cheese Heaven!

    by laguizz Written Sep 23, 2007

    No trip to Door County is Complete without a visit to Renard's Cheese. They have two locations, both south of Sturgeon Bay, one on Highway S to Algoma and the other on Highway 57 to Green Bay.

    They make brick, cheddar and jack cheese in many different varieties. Try a caraway or dill flavored cheese or a smoked string cheese. They have delicious aged 2 year and 5 year cheddar, too. They also make excellent summer sausage. You can taste some of their specialties right in the shop. The cheese is made in the back.

    You can make arrangements to make an early morning tour of the cheese factory if you call to make an appointment.

    Don't miss the fresh curds made almost every day. A delicacy! They are sooo much better than any you can get in a grocery store.

    Bistro 42: Food stop while wine tasting

    by apuleuis Updated Jun 12, 2015

    Pretty much exactly what you'd expect from a restaurant with the name "bistro" in it. Slightly higher prices, unique pairings. Not a ton of selection however. Great atmosphere and decor. This is located on the second floor of Door Peninsula Winery.

  • Nightingale Supper Club: Make a reservation if you don't wanna...

    by Jolietvilletraveler Written Aug 24, 2009

    Local pub type bar area where you can wait for your table. Have dips & chips for you to munch with your drink while waiting. Dining area is kinda crowded, but understand with how busy they are, they want as many customers as possible. Thursday night prime rib special was considerable cheaper than regular $, so they were Very busy. Fisherman's platter was large with perch fish fingers, scallops, whitefish & shrimp. Very good.

    Hostess oversaw every aspect of operation, very efficiently! Kids busing the tables never smiled, but seemed to work well together. Wait staff very friendly.

    Favorite Dish: Fisherman's platter. Variety.

  • Stone Harbor Restaurant & Pub: Go for lunch!

    by Jolietvilletraveler Written Aug 24, 2009

    They have a soup/salad bar lunch that is superb! "Fancy" conference center atmosphere & a little pretentious. Staff all very friendly & efficient. Gets busy, so go at opening time of 11:00.
    Dining room view is out onto the water & old bridge under repair.

    Favorite Dish: Soups!! Two available. One was a creamed pea/bacon that was fantastic. Other one was a creole/gumbo type, tomato base that was extremely good also. Salad bar had 3 great pasta salads & several things to put on salad mix, including hard boiled eggs.

    Highly recommend if you get tired of the fish, fish, fish & want/need a break for lunch!
