Sister Bay:
Door County’s
Al Fresco Destination

Sister Bay is a Foodie’s Favorite on the Waterfront

Sister Bay has been a dining destination ever since a local character put a goat on a roof 50 years ago, but an influx of new chefs and restaurants has made Northern Door’s largest village the place for food and drink.

Al fresco dining options beckon as you stroll the 1,900 feet of public waterfront, and the beautiful beach and marina call you to the bay. Toss a Frisbee on the waterfront, jump off the dock, or enjoy a summer concert in between visits to iconic shops and galleries, cozy coffee shops, beloved watering holes, a historic rural campus, and famous restaurants.
