Door County, Wisconsin is teeming with romance as Valentine’s Day weekend approaches. Hotels, resorts, and B&Bs are offering Romantic Lodging Specials & Packages so you can enjoy a weekend away with your sweetie, and there are lots of options for your Valentine’s dinner. We asked, and Door County Chefs Facebook followers told us where they love to take their loved ones for romantic dining on the Peninsula…
Donny’s Glidden Lodge Restaurant took the cake as Door County’s #1 Favorite Romantic Dining Spot, with one voter writing, “The other restaurants mentioned are all nice too, but not only is the food delicious at Donny’s, but the view cannot be beat. It’s a Big Bang for your Valentine buck,” and another naming Donny’s as “Hands down my favorite restaurant in WI!” Donny’s fills up fast for their Valentine’s Day Dinner, but if you can’t get a reservation for Feb. 14th, you’ll find that their menu and views are just as delicious and stunning any other day of the year!
Coming in close behind Donny’s were Alexander’s and The English Inn in Fish Creek, and Inn at Kristofer’s and Chop in Sister Bay. The English Inn will be open Friday through Sunday from 4pm-close on Valentine’s weekend offering their regular menu and wine selections as well as their house specialty, Beef Wellington. Featured nightly, their Wellington consists of a 6-ounce, hand-cut filet, seared and encrusted in a fresh garlic and mushroom pate, wrapped in puff pastry and served with a beef and red wine reduction sauce. Make your reservations for Valentine’s dinner Inn at Kristofer’s and enjoy incredible food and a gorgeous view from your table – they’ve been closed for some minor renovations, but plan to be open for Valentine’s weekend.
