Viking Grill (Sold in 2022)

29 Minute drive from Egg Cottage

*Please note: In February 2022 the Viking Grill was sold to the owners of Racine’s Blue Bear Cafe. We mourn its passing. This was Door County’s 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.  And the beat goes on.
