Beautiful restaurant! Great service/server Benjamin! Food was out of this world! Very enjoyable music selection! Only disappointment was music was way too loud!! Dinner conversation was dinner yelling!!! If this was just a bar I could understand the volume of the music! Thank you for very memorable meal!!!

The decor was very cool. We ordered an appetizer a salad and 2 entrees. The salad and appetizer came out at the same time. The entrees came out way before we were able to finish the first 2 courses. The waiter didn’t seem to care. We were celebrating our anniversary and were looking forward to a nice leisurely dinner. My whitefish had no flavor and only ate 2 bites. My husband’s fish was ok. We just wanted to leave. I don’t like to have to write a review like this but it’s frustrating to spend that much money and not have a good experience.

Crate never fails to please. The Chef’s broad range is exhibited from the locally famous sushi rolls, a meal in themselves, to his huge pork chops, tender and especially tasty. The funky, cozy Crate atmosphere is unique in this area and a welcomed change to other formulaic businesses.

Stopped into Crate on our way up for the weekend and arrived 15 minutes before closing on a Friday night. Party of 5 and they accommodated us very well. Our waitress was outstanding and once we heard she was the pastry chef, we had to try all 3 offerings. Incredible, will be back.

Everything about this place was great- the décor, food, dessert and drinks to die for. Try the Sake Sakarita- so good! We will definitely be back on our next Door County visit. Loved the menu selection (from sushi to plated meals with a wide variety of options).

We often go here while in Sturgeon Bay. The menu has some consistent favorites with special dishes that keep it fresh. The variety of options is good too. My wife is a vegetarian and I love meat. There were dishes we both could eat. Benjamin, our server, was super fun and was a great server.

Reservation at 7 PM. Food arrived at 8 PM after I threatened to walk out the door. That's one hour .Then the hostess gave us a lecture on being patient. I should try that on my customers.

The kitchen seemed overwhelmed. I liked the Waseda beef I ordered, but the rest of our party was unenthusiastic. Mushy white fish. Too much rice in the sushi I tried. The noise level shown on here is "Energetic" for "Loud" I think. The room is already acoustically loud and the music which is supposed to be ultra here and now just defeats anything but yelling to each other.

Locals will keep this place going after the season. The hostess needs to be sent to re-education center or....I'll leave it to the owner. Would never recommend this place and will never spend another $$ here.

Crate is a welcome addition to the downtown Sturgeon Bay dining. Although primarily a Sushi Resturant there are a number of other items on the menu to appeal to everyone. Wine and beer only, but some designer cocktails made with saki.

A surprising find in Door County! Wonderful food and great friendly service. Menu choices are inventive and sport a variety of flavors. Good menu variety and fresh local foods. The mahi-mahi was perfectly done atop a delicious pool of puréed cauliflower and medley of vegetables in a tasty sauce. The crispy potato strings added great texture. My sister’s French onion/crab soup was delicious as was the dim sum. Wine prices were reasonable. Will definitely return again!
