The Whistling Swan Inn & Restaurant
Whistling Swan always delivers a delicious meal and outstanding service. In this time of the pandemic they managed to make dining feel relaxed and respected social distancing boundaries, certainly not easy I’m sure. It was appreciated and I felt that safety was important for them. Looking forward to my next visit.
Would have preferred a window table
It was over an hour between the time we ordered the food and when it finally came. Several other t@bles that arrived after us recurved their fun before us. No explanation was offered only did we want more drinks. We did not order difficult food.
We love Whistling Swan. It is a hidden gem in DC, with a great history, as well as staff and food!
They do not have a full bar; which was surprising to us since they categorize themselves as a “supper club”.
Everyone was friendly and the food was good; but was not many options. They were out of two entrees by 7:30pm.
We were there for an anniversary dinner and it was acknowledged but expected the offer of a free dessert or glass of champagne.
Amazing meal! So worth the wait and the staff was attentive!
Wonderful food and drink. They did a wonderful job keeping folks social distances and safe. Definitely will return. The cornbread appetizer was delicious and enough for four people. My friends all raves about the steak, salmon and m6 fish was very good
The flavor of the food was outstanding, but not a lot of choices on the entre menu (was different than the menu online on open table) and nothing on the dessert menu was remotely interesting . We thought we would just go out for custard later, but our 7 pm reservation and the service, though pleasant, took longer and so we didn’t get out in time for dessert elsewhere. While they did a great job of social distancing indoors, we missed the opportunity to sit outside on a beautiful summer evening in Wisconsin, which are far too few. We choose this place as it was recommended for a romantic dinner (it was our anniversary) and while we enjoyed our food and server, we would likely try elsewhere with so many dining choices in door county.
The menu was limited, obviously due to covid, however it was nothing to rave about. Our hostess was less than delightful upon arrival and we felt very put off by the staff. Our waitress was friendly, but I don’t need to go back. I ordered the barramundi fish. When it came out, it was covered with a spicy jerk style rub that was not listed on the menu. Thankfully, I don’t mind hot/spicy foods-not what I was expecting. It’s too bad because it’s a beautiful place. Perhaps given the times and pandemic going on, they are doing their best. Hoping others have a more positive experience.
Whistling Swan just doesn’t disappoint. Everything was fantastic. Our server, Lola, was very attentive and gave great wine recommendations. The food was just about perfect. Great ambiance and not too loud. It was very clear the staff was up to speed on their Covid prevention. Great job WS crew!
Dinner was very good, for the most part. A few pieces of the steak was a little well done. But good ambience and great service.
The venue is really cute and the service was friendly and professional. They implemented all the COVID guidelines and it felt very comfortable to dine in. The food was really amazing and delightful, with fresh, quality ingredients.
One of our usual spots for when we visit door county. Had the spaghetti and mushrooms and the baramundi. The noodles were made from scratch and the sauce was incredible. The portions were just right and all the staff was friendly and accommodating. Thanks for a great meal.
Excellent quality food. Quiet night out secluded from the rest of the busy town.
The last time we came to The Whistling Swan was in 2016. Everything was amazing. The food, the service, all of it. We were excited to come back again this time with our kids. Obviously things have changed since the virus, so the menu has been reduced. The prices were outrageous for the food offered. 2 pieces of cod with fries were $26. A tough, not good hangar steak was $32. It was so bad I only ate one piece of it. My two kids ordered pasta which was good but still very overpriced for what we got. We spent well over $100 on a meal that the equivalent of very bad bar food. The service was great, our waitress was great. But to charge that much for food and have it be such a low standard is a shame. We won’t be going back.
Very good service and good practices followed. We will return again!
Beautiful, historic restaurant in a hopping part of Door County. The food was locally grown & scrumptious!! Our compliments to the chef!! Waitstaff was quick & super friendly!
Fantastic food and service. GiGi was our server with her daughter and both were a joy to have around us. This is a mist visit restaurant and inn.
We just love dining out at the Swan...opened my app to make another reservation for tonight! The food is delicious, and the setting is stunning (both the historical building and the lovely town you stroll to and from the restaurant). I recommend having an earlier dinner and then walking down to see the sunset!
We just decided to go here because it was a restaurant on Open Table in Fish Creek. We did not expect how good the food was going to be. Everything from the fish taco appetizer to the butterscotch pudding was phenomenal! We will definitely return here when we come back to Door County.
We celebrated Valentine’s weekend with my daughter, son-in-law and their children. This has become an annual tradition.
They were very accommodating to gluten-free needs. Great brussel sprouts!
Wonderful everytime! I am a repeat customer and will continue to return!
Excellen fruit sour beer, mushroom entree, and cheese plate.
No sides with meals, no refills on soda or water, 3% fee for credit card use. What food we got was ok.
Our food, the ambience and service was great. I've been here a few times before and the Whistling Swan is always a go to for me when in the area. Awesome! Thanks!
We had a fabulous dinner for New Years Eve. The atmosphere and service was wonderful
Our family of four had a fabulous dinner on New Years Eve. Our children ages 12 & 13 loved their prime rib. Husband had the chicken and I had the vegetarian—all were outstanding. One reason I chose this place was the atmosphere is quiet and it’s very quaint. The farm to table food is creative and delicious.
I have wanted to try this place for years but it is always busy in the summer and I could never get reservations so I was thrilled to get in on New Years Eve. It did not disappoint!
Only slight knock was less than the usual excellent service attentiveness. New team in place this fall not quite up to prior groups skills. For example, waiter did not ask entire table if they would like another drink. The entire team is friendly and will likely sort out the small stuff. Food and atmosphere top notch.
Everything was wonderful!
My wife and I had a great dinner date. Superb service and tasty food.
Interesting experience. Brunch was very good, however, a few items on the menu unavailable, eg, ham for eggs benedict (substituted bacon), cherry juice (substituted cider, but could only find a small quantity of cider), bloody mary (no liquor license, so no vodka but made with Soju; tasty). Suggest that the unavailability of menu items be presented prior to customers placing order.
Another fantastic evening at Whistling Swan. Our server Gretchen was basically taking care of the entire dining room by herself and doing a spectacular job of it. The food was all excellent with the amuse bouche being delightful little surprises. Highly recommend.
Just a lovely place for a date night or dinner with friends. Food was delicious and the setting lovely. Chef made a special dish for our vegan guest.
We love the Whistlng Swan. The food is incredibly delicious and creative, all locally sourced. The wine list, though pricey, is excellent and well chosen. The service is always perfect, always well-informed. My only complaint, ever, is that the main dining room can be loud, and that the porch is a little too dimly lit. Neither one will ever keep us from going!
Dan is always great.
Rainy night added to ambiance. Attendant was marvelous! Scallops were out of this world. My friend’s prime rib was slightly unevenly cooked-a little more than med rare on one end- but still delicious. We’ll be back! JR
We and a friend visiting for the weekend had a really lovely dinner and evening at the Whistling Swan. The dining room with its fireplace is intimate and pleasant. The dinner selections met all of our preferences. We shared two appetizers which were delicious and shareable. Our dinner entrees of rabbit stew, scallops, and mushroom cassoulet were all wonderful and our shared pot de creme was a terrific end of the evening. The wine selections were reasonable and good complements of our entrees.
The brunch was delicious! Service was great!
The restaurant was beautiful, food delicious, service prompt and attentive and an amazing wine list!
