Popular 3-night festivities featuring a buffet and themed entertainment celebrates a decade of popularity!



T.Ashwell’s is recently celebrated the return of the restaurant’s popular Mediterranean weekend in January. All-you-can-eat buffet with two belly-dancing shows accompanied the meal.

The Ellison Bay restaurant opens its kitchen space to the public on these evenings, with the buffet being served by candlelight within the kitchen area. The fare consists of over 25 classic Mediterranean foodstuffs, including Moroccan-spiced crab cakes with cilantro dressing, tabbouleh, lamb kebabs, baklava, Persian lamb & rice meatballs, baba ghanoush, and hummus.

The themed entertainment for the evenings is led by Andrea Nikoupolis-Weliky and the Kaheena Belly Dance Troupe. The group is based out of Door, Brown, and Kewaunee counties, and will be performing a variety of dances with an emphasis on belly and sword dances.

Mediterranean Night marked its 10th year, and offers a way for locals and visitors to the peninsula get together for a great evening of food and entertainment during the winter. “Some of my customers tell me that this is the weekend they wait for all year,” says Tom Smith, chef and owner of T.Ashwell’s. “It’s also great way for the kitchen to show off its culinary skills.”

The price for Mediterranean Night is $29 per person, and does not include drinks or gratuity. Reservations are strongly encouraged as all three evenings fill up quickly.

T.Ashwell’s is located at 11976 Mink River Road in Ellison Bay. The restaurant’s menu changes frequently and concentrates on American/Ethnic cuisine, with an emphasis on using local and organic ingredients. T. Ashwell’s is open for dinner during the winter months Thursday through Saturday beginning at 5:30 pm. The restaurant will close for the season in late February.
