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. 

  • 2020 update: Fish Boils Fridays and Saturdays at 6pm. Reservations: 920-854-2998.
