Midwest Living Review

Trevor Meers
Check the famous Door County Fish Boil off your list at this family restaurant, where the fish is all-you-can-eat and the on-site bakery tempts you to take some treats home.

No serious Door County visitor goes home without attending a fish boil, and in Sturgeon Bay, the place for the boil in summertime is Scaturo’s, a red clapboard restaurant on the edge of town. In front of the big front window, the traditional “boil over” takes place when a cook throws kerosene onto the wood fire and sends the water in the giant pot of fish boiling over. Then everyone heads inside for an all-you-can-eat whitefish meal in a dining room that probably hasn’t change much in the last 40 years. As with pretty much all fish boils, the food leans heavily to the bland side. It’s simply boiled fish, potatoes and onions, after all. The topper at Scaturo’s is a slice of local cherry pie made in the attached bakery. After your meal (or even the next morning when you’re setting out for a day of touring), be sure to browse the large bakery case packed with goodies.
