As you browse through our dining articles, cravings and hunger are sure to set in. But, keep in mind that the dining scene becomes trickier to navigate the later the evening becomes. An oft-told joke suggests that towns in Door County roll up their sidewalks after the sun sets. This is an exaggeration, but it is not uncommon for restaurants to start winding down as early as 8pm. Options are at their height in July and August, the "peak season." Here are some suggestions on where to find late night dining options. After 9pm, we recommend calling ahead.
LATE Usually 9pm, later on weekends
The Bistro at Liberty Square
Mike's Port Pub
LATER Usually until 10pm
JJ's La Puerta
Mink River Basin
Fish Creek Grill
EVEN LATER Kitchen closes at 11pm year round
The undisputed king of late night dining in Door County is AC Tap, located on Hwy 57, north of downtown Baileys Harbor. "The Tap," as it is affectionately referred to, served from 11am to 2am year round. Between games of bar dice, patrons can enjoy an array of homemade soups, burgers, and sandwiches until bar time. Be sure to check out the board behind the bar for the daily special. Last call at AC Tap means last call for drinks AND food.
