    Good things come in small packages, which certainly applies to Fat Belly in this instance. This is a hard restaurant to find as it hidden in Sister Bay behind the Johnson mini race car track on the drive to the Country House Inn. Please, make the effort: It is well worth it. The seating capacity is minuscule, perhaps three booths and two small tables, but there is also some seating at the equally petite bar. Happily, reservations can be made. The three appetizers are all to die for: Crab rangoon, shrimp tempura, and There are also three entries: A fish dish (not tried) a sliced steak dish, very tasty and chewy and beautifully served, and something called the Samurai Bowl. This is a chicken dish on a bed of cabbage greens with rice underneath. By far my favorite dish. All of the portions are very generous. You will not leave Fat Belly hungry. There is a decent drink selection offering soft drinks along with beer and wine. Enough to please any palette, but also ask for the wines by the bottle, which are surprisingly well curated. I cannot speak to the sushi offerings as that is not my culinary preference. If they are as good as everything else on the menu, then you will be in for a treat. The staff is very small at only two to four people. Dan and Sam provide outstanding wait service as both of them have been working at various establishments up here for years. I haven't officially met the chef yet, maybe the next time. Fat Belly is a treasure, but I don't want to make it too popular as I want to get in the next time I crave one of their delicious dishes. This happens all too often. This is one of the best restaurants in Door County.

    Fat Belly is a joy to visit if you are a foodie and you want to sample all of the delicious pan-Asian dishes. The food is outstanding and the portions are more than generous. In fact, good for you if you can even finish your meal. My wife and I brought home some of our meals, and she was very happy with her leftovers a few days later. I opted for the Crab Rangoon and the Shrimp Tempura appetizers as both are delicious. My wife also ordered the Pot Stickers, and she made the three appetizers a full meal. I had the Samurai Bowl with chicken for my entre, and it was all I could eat and more. Excellent choice. Daniel and Sam are the two waiters, and they are both total pros. The wine selections are limited but very serviceable. The dessert plate is ice cream and something. I have had it twice, and I still don't know how or what it is. All I know that it is cold and yummy and some how fruit based. Fat Belly is a hard to find tiny hole in the wall restaurant behind the Sister Bay race track south of Jerry's Flowers. Look for it to experience an outstanding dining experience.

    This was our first time dining at Fat Belly and we were not disappointed. It is a refreshing addition to the Door County dining scene. The food was fresh, creative, and delicious. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable, and very helpful. We will be back.

    We had a delicious meal and fun time exploring the menu at Fat Belly. Three of us shared orders of dressed potstickers, Godzilla, Samurai Bowl and hand Grenades. All of the dishes were fresh, well prepared and nicely timed. FB is an excellent addition to Door Count dining scene and a place we look forward to visiting often!

    Food is interesting and delicious. The dressed potstickers are my favorite. A great need on the Door County food scene. The restaurant is very tiny though. Don’t expect to walk in and get a table, especially in high season.

    we were looking for the old version of Fat Belly but found they went somewhat upscale and completely changed the menu to a Ramen, Poke and Sushi venue. Completely changed the decor from super casual to a darker and booth atmosphere. Although quite a bit more expensive it all turned out quite good. Especially the pot stickers were a stand out. As it filled up with customers along with the speaker music it started to get quite loud in such a small space. But we would definitely go back.

    Fat Belly is an outstanding option for sushi and poke in northern Door County. It’s small (charming) and has limited hours (Friday and Saturday), but it’s all done with purpose. The excellent service was surpassed only by the creative and delicious food offerings. It’s located just outside the center of Sister Bay, offering a nice, quiet alternative. I highly recommend Fat Belly.

    We loved our dinner at Fat belly. Food was all delicious - we had the crab Rangoon, fat belly wraps, and two rolls. The service was also outstanding- everything was quick and the servers were friendly and attentive. This is a great addition to the Door County restaurant scene. We will definitely be back. Recommend making a reservation for dinner since it is such a small place with only a few tables.

    We decided to try the only sushi restaurant north of Sturgeon Bay and one that was pretty new. We've been coming to Door County for 20+ years and have never seen an Asian food restaurant up here. This was excellent. They are only open a couple of days a week so reservations are recommended. We went rather early so it was easy to get a seat on the covered patio out of the sun. We were seated quickly and our waiter was right there to take a drink order and tell us about the restaurant. The menu is not huge but definitely had a lot of great variety. We started with the potstickers which were crispy and not scorching hot. Delicious. The only downside was it took quite some time for the requested fork to show up. They supply a napkin and traditional chopsticks at each table setting. I had finished 4 of the 8 potstickers before the fork was eventually delivered. A small oversight. We ordered salmon poke minus the dragon sauce and the Korean Pork Belly Ramen. Both were excellent. The poke bowl was large and had more salmon and rice than my wife could finish plus two fresh avocado slices. The pork belly ramen was flavorful, not overly spicy, and full of perfectly done noodles, mushrooms, and pieces of pork belly (not overly fatty like so many places) as well as a soft-boiled egg. Again, like the potstickers, warm but not scorching hot. Service from Dillon was attentive (other than 3 requests for a fork) while not intrusive. We will definitely be back for the pork belly lettuce wraps on the menu.

    We made a reservation ahead of time on a Saturday for outdoor dining (we brought our dog) when we arrived they greeted us by name and had a dog water bowl ready for us! Server was wonderful, very helpful and food came out very fast. Superb quality. Beautiful presentation matched the wonderful taste. Nothing else like it in the area. Wish they were open weekdays or that we came a day earlier so we could have eaten there on Friday.

    From the minute we arrived we did not feel welcome. If you dont want 830pm reservations, just dont take them, we would have gladly ate somewhere else. Place was extremely small and underwhelming, and server just didn’t want us to be there, and made a point of it at all stages of our meal. As for food, avg at best.. potstickers were about the level of pf chengs… and the main dish - tuna poke bowl and street noodles were about what you would expect at a dive/takeout place… not an expensive restaurant…. Not even sure if there were shrimp in the shrimp noodles… as lovers of sushi, poke, ramen, and asian food in general we were so happy to try one in door county and on our 5 year anniversary to boot…. In the end we couldn’t wait to leave the frozen tundra for somewhere else… thankfully staples the bar at al johnsons and wilsons ice cream salvaged our anniversary evening….

    Fat Belly Restaurant is Excellent. Creative - innovated cuisine. Memorable - unique libations. We had a poke bowl - delicious. Firecracker sushi roll - a do not miss. Godzilla sushi roll - excellent. Drinks are memorable. The environment is cozy - comfortable with a great vibe and highly creative interior. The owners and staff were friendly - informative and engaging. We throughly enjoyed our evening out. Consider us regulars. A do not miss if you are looking for a delightfully different Door County dining out experience.

    Exceptional food and service. I only did 4 stars on “value for money” because that category doesn’t apply to this kind of restaurant (the traditional sense). Absolutely, 5 stars value for money, if you’re into flavor, service & experience. If you’re interested in a lot of food for a small price, might not be your jam. ..And that’s ok. There are plenty of other DoCo restaurants that will serve you the next days lunch along with your dinner.

    We had the dressed potstickers which were delicious and a new experience for us. We also ordered 3 sushi rolls each presented creatively and delicious. We sat on the porch very comfortably with the heaters close by to keep us toasty. Our waitress and the staff were very friendly and professional. We will definitely return for another fabulous dinner. So glad to have an Asian inspired restaurant in Door County.

    We travelled with our dog so dining outside in the patio area was our only option. The menu isn't huge but it was early season so perhaps it expands over the summer. The selections they offerred were excellent, the service was friendly and prompt. We would visit again when in the area.

    Overall experience would be an 11/10 The staff, service, atmosphere and cuisine left us very satisfied while also being very accommodating with us bringing our 3 month old daughter. With a vast menu, there’s something for everyone with very fair prices to boot! My husband and I got the: •Crab Rangoons - light, crispy and flavorful •Ramen (Korean Side Pork) - nice rich broth and perfectly soft boiled egg •Fire Cracker Roll - delicious and just enough kick to not be too spicy if you enjoy just a little heat •Witchcraft Roll - very fresh and the salmon just melts in your mouth We will definitely be returning!
