Located at 136 N Third Ave. in Sturgeon Bay, 136 Restaurant may appear small, but it’s fabulous and affordable menu, knowledgeable staff, and welcoming atmosphere is definitely going to turn it into your next favorite spot.
After a long absence from the Sturgeon Bay Dining Scene to raise her five children, Owner Sharon Peterson missed cooking for others. She started a fledgling business in the Hole N’ One Mobil on the West Side. The small and limited kitchen quickly turned into a thriving business and she realized she must expand.
After working with the Door County Economic Development Corporation to secure funding, Peterson found herself back in Full Service dining in a prime spot in the bustling downtown district in Sturgeon Bay. From signing on the dotted line, Peterson opened 136 in an impressive four weeks, debuting the restaurant on Valentine’s Day of this year. Although it seems incredibly fast, you’d never know it all came together so quickly when looking around the masterfully decorated trendy dining room or the expertly created menu.
Serving up lunch and dinner year round, 136 has already made a name for itself. Touting a phenomenal lunch menu with something for everyone all for under $20, it has become the Go-To spot for business lunches or a friendly gathering. At night, the restaurant transforms to a hot spot for locals and visitors alike. Lunch is served Monday through Saturdays starting at 11am. Dinner service is available Wednesday through Saturdays until 10pm. For more information, please visit their facebook page or call 920.746.1100.
