    Chives is always a delight! Everything we ordered was delicious, especially the escargot (also crabcakes, green salad, perch fish fry, and a ribeye steak). I usually skip dessert, but not at Chives - desserts are extra special. We loved the trio of chocolate mousse and the eclair. Chives is such a special place, and I am grateful whenever I get to visit.

    We went for the bun and brew special. Great deal. Food is always good but this time it missed the mark. We all ordered a medium rare French onion burger. We were warned that it would be sloppy and to eat with knife and fork. Sounds yum!!! Well, all our burgers were medium well and not a lot of the French onion soupiness we were promised. We all ate them. Good flavor but not how we ordered. And disappointed in the lack of juiciness. Next time I’ll request rare!

    Another wonderful dinner with friends! Chives is able to source wonderful PEI oysters and mussels. Carlton and John are such personable servers with great suggestions and have just the right balance of friendliness and professionalism. I am truly fortunate to have this restaurant only a short drive from home.

    We had a great experience with recent brunch at chives. We ordered the fancy home fries and the cherry bread pudding French toast. The fancy home fries includes an assortment of veggies that were tender and perfectly seasoned with the potatoes tender but crispy on the outside and a fried egg with a crispy white and still runny yolk. Delicious! The bread pudding French toast was moist and flavorful, not cloyingly sweet and the goat cheese was a perfect complement. Service by Haley was great - attentive and patient and helpful when we were debating about they to order. All the staff we talked to were friendly and welcoming. As vegetarians, we were pleased to find out that Chives always has something available for vegetarians even if it’s not featured on the menu. We’ve been coming to baileys harbor for years and are thrilled to know we could come back to Chives again - hopefully for dinner - and enjoy the delicious food and great service again.

    We've been to Chives twice now on our visits to Door County. Once for dinner and this time for Sunday Brunch. The food is always exceptional. Service staff are super friendly and attentive without being overbearing. On this visit we treated ourselves to the Appetizer Trio of Wontons, Crab Cake and Smoked Salmon. I could honestly make a meal on this alone. We especially liked the Smoked Salmon served on the crispy potato latke. For entrees, we had the Classic Eggs Benedict and Cherry Bread Pudding French Toast. WOW! The latter is a new addition to the menu and quite phenomenal. The mix of savory and sweet was so delightful. I hope this is an item the chef keeps on the menu for future visits! Check on Chives. You won't be disappointed at any time of day!

    Delicious! First timer who made the drive to Bailey’s Harbor to celebrate a friends birthday dinner. Having both been to Rye before we knew we’d be in for good food. Started with a cheeseboard and a split Cesar salad - the croutons on the salad were otherworldly. I had the fish special, a Turbot and my friend had the Beef Cheek dish - again both amazing! But dessert- that is where we really enjoyed ourselves. Not only can you take a peak at the desserts in the “library” (a beautiful display of what you are about to enjoy) we settled on FOUR desserts, a coffee creme brûlée, a banana cream pie tart, chocolate topped and custard filled eclair and a chocolate and caramel dome. Make the drive. Enjoy yourselves. Service was wonderful - I believe Kim, was never hovering but always there when you needed her.

    Chives never disappoints. We have had many dinners there for both special occasions and just a nice dinner out. The culinary team is quite inventive, offering several soecials in addition to a small but varied menu. We have old favorites such as the escargot, mussels and beef cheeks, but the specials have been consistently good and well presented. Ot is one of the best restaurants in the County and one we return to often.

    Food was good but there were oddities you don’t expect from a nice restaurant. No water refills; they were out of several desserts in the menu. The steak tartare was delicious but not served with toast.. it was just to be eaten like cereal? The calamari salad and escargot were good. Just seemed an off night.

    We were welcomed with a smile, seated immediately, and had wonderful service. The waiter was very perceptive and responded to our cues to provide the perfect atmosphere. The food was better than simply delicious - the flavor parings were delightful and the presentation was stunning. We will definitely return. If you aren't needing a full meal, the drinks and deserts alone are worth the trip! We can't wait to visit when the weather will allow us to enjoy the outdoor patio.

    Chives had 3 entrees in addition to their wonderful menu and it was a difficult choice to make. Everything that we have had there has been excellent. I had the Sole and my husband had the smoked Salmon. Previously, I had Flounder that was made in the same manner as the Sole. Both the Sole & Flounder were sauted with Beurre Blanc added after cooking. All of the white fish at Chives is fantastic. We enjoy dining there year round.

    This wasn’t our first time dining at Chives but it was our first time enjoying brunch there and everything was delicious. My husband and I both stuck with the classic “American Breakfast” and it didn’t disappoint. Presentation was beautiful and everything tasted so good, especially the home fries and toast. Nothing was basic about it and we were both very happily satisfied.
