Stone Harbor Resort is a delight, and their restaurant, Stone Harbor Pub & Restaurant is too. Walk in to a large dining room, in deep beige, with high ceilings and huge paned windows and transoms that look out directly onto the waters of Sturgeon Bay and to the Old Bridge. The restaurant is part of the very nice Stone Harbor Resort and Conference Center.
The dining room area seats about 68, and is decorated with paintings and prints on the wall space that is available (lots of windows here). The overall feeling is one of class, but when the tables are full, there is a distinct din to the dining. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, it is a full service comfortable and casual restaurant. Our crew dined in for dinner.

What We Ordered!
Our six diners gave the menu a nice workout. For all, the visual presentation of the dishes was just excellent, offering a very tempting view of the entrees when placed in front of you.
We started with an excellent appetizer, the Artichoke Dip with pita chips, which was creamy and flavorful. We loved it! Recommended! The salads were standard house salads with mixed greens, tomatoes, mushrooms, croutons and onions. The peppercorn dressing was wonderful.
The Tenderloin Filet, a large piece of beef tenderloin, which a tthe time was topped with a Gorgonzola cheese, caramelized shallots, panchetta relish, and finished off with a peppercorn brandy sauce was tender and delicious. The Gorgonzola cheese sauce was a bit heavy, but easily removed to taste. Served with mashed potatoes and mini-squash, the dinner was a delight. Preparations change over time so always ask how the tenderloin will be prepared for you.
The 12 ounce Rib-Eye was char-grilled to "medium"as ordered. This flavorful and satisfying dish was topped with wild mushrooms and served also with peas-in-the-pod, mini-squash (excellent) and mashed potatoes. Thumbs up on this one!
The Cedar Plank Salmon, baked on a cedar plank of course, is served mushrooms and toped with asparagus and hollandaise. If you want, order the hollandaise on the side to so you control the quantity.
Two of our reviewers ordered the Grilled mahi mahi (they couldn't resist)! Decent portions offered plenty of flavor and plenty to eat. Both liked the dish quite a bit. Get the rice blend with this one as your side.
We recently stopped in for lunch. It's nice to have lunch here on a nice warm and sunny day as you can see the water, harbor and boats. Pleasant. Lots of sandwiches are availalbe from hot dogs to chicken, tenderloin, clubs, portabella, veggir wrap, cajun turkey and more. About 8 saldas are offrered too, as well as appetizers and soups.
Crab Salad - was excellent with a creamy crab dressing. Mixed greens, lump crab chunks (small), red onion, tomatoes, cucumbers, and egg wedges.
Reuben Sandwich was equally good - corned beef, 1000 island dressing served on rye, and grilled. Delicious,
Service in general was very good. A decent wine selection, beer and a full bar are offered (there is a pub in the next room).
They have what they call a plated breakfast at Stone Harbor. Eggs Benedict, an omelet of your choice, pancakes, French toast, Door County Stuffed French toast (crem cheese nad cherries, steak and eggs or a fresh fruit plate. Lots of sides like has browns and more.
There is music in the pub in season on the weekends, and specials throughout the week.
We all enjoyed dining at Stone Harbor Pub & Restaurant at Stone Harbor Resort and would come back here often! We recommend that you take a ride and dine here -we think you will like it. And tell them that DoorCountyNavigator.com sent you!
