Stone Harbor Restaurant & Pub
Open: Breeakfast (Sat/ & Sundays), lunch (11am - 2pm), dinner (5pm - 9pm, Wed. - Saturday)
At Stone Harbor Resort, Stone Harbor Restaurant & Pub is a first class culinary experience.
Stone Harbor Resort is a delight, and their restaurant, Stone Harbor Restaurnat & Pub is too. Walk in to a large dining room, in deep beige, with high ceilings and huge paned windows and transoms that look out directly onto the waters of Sturgeon Bay and to the Old Bridge. The restaurant is part of the very nice Stone Harbor Resort and Conference Center.
The dining room area seats about 68, and is decorated with paintings and prints on the wall space that is available (lots of windows here). The overall feeling is one of class, but when the tables are full, there is a distinct din to the dining. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, it is a full service comfortable and casual restaurant. Our crew dined in for dinner.
The Dinner Menu
A nice selection of both appetizers and entrees offer something for just about every taste. The appetizers include such delights as Artichoke Dip with pita chips, basket of sweet potato fries, fresh assorte veggies with diip, Renard's cheese curds, Stone Harbor nachos and more. Always check for current offerings.
"Soups and Salads"range from Stone Harbor New England Clam Chowder, to daily specials, and a fresh Harbor Salad (with wallnuts, dried cherries and more - yum).
The entrees, all served with fresh dinner rolls, a house salad or soup, and a choice of potato, rice blend or vegetabes, are complete and, as a guide, are priced between $18 and $26 -always check with the restaurant for current pricing information.
There's a 10 ounce flat iron steak, all shoulder cut beef - which is one of the best htings on the menu. Other steaks include a tenderloin filet and a rib-eye.
In the seafood area, there's haddock, baked stuffed shrimp (stuffed with crabmeat & cheeses), grilled mahi mahi, filet of salmon and more. And of course about 4 or 5 chicken dished, like a pecan chcicken, chicken broccoli alfredo and grilled chicken breast. Pork dishes, past dishes (liek a cajon pasta) and mroe compelte a varied menu.
Ostrich Loin, Camembert Chicken, Stone Harbor Sirloin, Blackened Ahi, Anise Herb Pork, and other choices rounded out the dinner offerings. All looked like they had an interesting twist in the preparation.
A children's menu is also available with things like a personal pizza, kid's size, hamburgers, grilled cheese and chicken tenders.
What We Ordered!
Our six diners gave the menu a nice workout. For all, the visual presentation of the dishes was just excellent, offering a very tempting view of the entrees when placed in front of you.
We started with an excellent appetizer, the Artichoke Dip with pita chips, which was creamy and flavorful. We loved it! Recommended! The salads were standard house salads with mixed greens, tomatoes, mushrooms, croutons and onions. The peppercorn dressing was wonderful.
The Tenderloin Filet, a large piece of beef tenderloin, which a tthe time was topped with a Gorgonzola cheese, caramelized shallots, panchetta relish, and finished off with a peppercorn brandy sauce was tender and delicious. The Gorgonzola cheese sauce was a bit heavy, but easily removed to taste. Served with mashed potatoes and mini-squash, the dinner was a delight.
The 10 ounce Rib-Eye was char-grilled to "medium"as ordered. This flavorful and satisfying dish was topped with wild mushrooms and served also with peas-in-the-pod, mini-squash (excellent) and mashed potatoes. Thumbs up on this one!
The sauce on the Bourbon Baked Scallops brought a flavor burst of Kentucky Bourbon and Door County maple syrup -an excellent and creative combination. Mashed also came with this entrée, which would be re-ordered in a heartbeat! Don' tthink thi sone is available any longer.
Two of our reviewers ordered the Grilled mahi mahi (they couldn't resist)! While both ordered the dish "medium", one was delivered "medium"while one was on the "well"side. Decent portions offered plenty of flavor and plenty to eat. Both liked the dish quite a bit. Get the rich blen with this one as your side.
Dessert offering included a carrot cake with chocolate sauce, an orange rum cake, a Louisiana Bourbon pecan pie, and more. Being quite satisfied from a filling meal, only one piece of carrot cake was ordered, and one 4-berry pie. The carrot cakes arrived with hazelnuts and almonds, and a lot of chocolate sauce more than drizzled upon the plate. The 4-Berry Pie taster claimed it was "berry good!" Dessert items change frequently so always check as to what is available now.
Service in general was very good, though one coffee ordered, got overlooked. Not a big deal. A decent wine selection, beer and a full bar are offered.
They also serve lunch and have a lot to offer from salads to sandwiches. And breakfast on Saturday and Sundays is the deal. Nice pub too, which is usually opened until midnight.
We all enjoyed dining at Stone Harbor Restaurant & Pub at Stone Harbor Resort and would come back here often! We recommend that you take a ride and dine here -we think you will like it.
