We've listed them in our favorite order, but you'll find many different opinions.

Any of these four will provide a classic fish boil experience. Watch the video for a bit of insight into the tradition.

White Gull Inn

9 Minute drive from Egg Cottage

Located in Fish Creek, and the only one on this list that does a year-round fish boil. The boil is done in their outdoor courtyard. Be sure to make reservations as this is a popular and truly lovely spot to enjoy the tradition.

The Old Post Office

16 Minute drive from Egg Cottage

Great fish boil with water views and, for much of the summer, you’ll also enjoy the added benefit of beautiful sunsets. Located right in Ephraim, with the harbor waters just across the street. Wonderful.

Viking Grill

29 Minute drive from Egg Cottage

Located in Ellison Bay, this is home to the original fish boil. It started in 1961 when the original owners, Annette and Lawrence Wickman, wanted to boost their restaurant business. They modified what was then the popular trout boil by using a more plentiful fish.  The rest is history.
