Door County Covid-19 Dining
*Update: On June 30, Destination Door County (the chamber of commerce) issued a very complete, very useful 2020 restaurant guide (link below). Our guide was created only because, until now, a dining guide for this Covid year didn’t exist. Now that one has been created, we will stop updating our original guide. The original guide begins under the link to the “Destination Door County Restaurant Guide”.

About this Guide
This page was made in earnest to help restaurants in our small villages that rely on seasonal visitors. We are doing this “FOR FREE” in order to both support restaurants and to help visitors navigate 2020’s Covid waters. It’s taken a lot of work to put this together, but as a small Door County business, we’d like to do what we can to help our Door County community and its visitors. PLEASE HELP and share it to your social media. We all need to watch out for each other this year. This is our small way to help.
There is no charge to be listed, we only ask that in the spirit of community you post this Dining Guide on your Facebook page once we have added you. To be added, send a note that you agree to the above, along with your 2020 information to: [email protected]
- Dining indoors? If so, indicate if tables are socially distanced and if reservations are required.
- Patio/outdoor seating? If so, is the outdoor dining full-service or self-service.
- Still offering Takeaway/Online Ordering? Provide a link to your online menu and ordering instructions.
- Operating hours and days.
- Anything else significant for this year diners should know?
A note on Sturgeon Bay restaurants: This guide focuses on the small villages north of the city of Sturgeon Bay. There are numerous terrific restaurants in Sturgeon Bay – too many to cover in Covid detail here. However, if someone with knowledge of 2020’s Covid situation in Sturgeon Bay creates a similar page for the city, please contact us and we would be very happy to share the link on this page.
