Door County Restaurants: Old and New Favorites

We try to eat at the condo quite a bit so we aren't always eating out.  But some places we just can't miss.  We enjoyed our must go to restaurants early in our vacation.  We ate at Bayside Tavern, breakfast at White Gull and soup at Summer Kitchen.

We also had pizza this year at Wild Tomato.  We didn't go last year, but it was still just as good as we remembered.  They have an extensive beer list and wood fired pizzas in addition to other items like salad, sandwiches and pasta.  We had a really good appetizer of different types of breads served with spreads and dips.  Kevin had a sandwich and the rest of us had pizza.  We sat outside and did not notice any mosquitoes while we were there.
So good Zack cleaned his plate

For a new place to try, we checked out Fred and Fuzzy's Waterfront Bar and Grill for lunch.  There had been some recent reviews that looked promising and the location is off the beaten trail which is right up our alley.  It's down a long drive and surrounded by a cottage resort area that looked nice as well.  I did not notice any indoor seating, there were tables with umbrellas and tables without.  We chose one with, as the sun was hot that day.  The tables are just plopped on the lawn by the lake.  There is a dock, so you can pull your boat up and come on shore to eat.  A couple of kayakers pulled up while we were eating.  The food, I would describe as upscale bar.  Lots of appetizers and sandwiches.  I had one of their famous Door County Cherry Juice Margaritas.  It was served on the rocks in a big glass, and was quite tasty.  Zack had the kids Macaroni and Cheese bites, Chad and I both had Brisket Sliders and Kevin had an Italian Beef Sandwich.  All were good, and we had leftovers to enjoy later in the week.
