All in the family
Matthew Peterson purchased Casey's in 2008 and changed the name to Casey's BBQ and Smokehouse specializing in you guessed it, smoked foods. Casey's has a casual feel with pine paneling in the bar and restaurant. The U-shaped bar is large and the room also has high bar tables, a pool table, darts and 4 TV's. They always have music playing which in my book is a bonus. Casey's takes on a real local feel in the winter. In the summer time they have picnic tables on the back lawn. I LOVE to eat outside! The bar, dining room and back yard at Casey's Smokehouse in Egg Harbor. The menu of course has a lot of BBQ items. The smoker is located outside the entrance and makes for a wonderful aroma that I can even smell when I drive by. I love the smoked prime rib and chicken. They have an extensive menu including non-smoked items as well as salads, appetizers, steaks and fish. We are big fans of Casey's Friday night perch.
Casey's Smokehouse is located in downtown
Egg Harbor on Highway 42. Matthew also owns and operates Pelletier's in Fish Creek which is a quaint little restaurant on Main Street. Matthew finds time to be the master boiler each and every night during their season (May through October). Pelletier's also has a full bar and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Be sure to say hello to Regan when you are in there!
Not to be left out, Matthew's dad is a master boiler at his restaurant Viking Grill in Ellison Bay. The Viking was one of the original restaurants to boil fish so Matthew's dad Dan learned from the best! As a kid we ate in there a lot as my best friend had a cabin on Garrett Bay. The Viking is where I had my first (but definitely not last) fish boil.The Viking also has a local feel and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner along with their famous fish boils. They also offer a full bar. Three local, family-operated restaurants. Door County has a lot of those I am happy to say.
