The White Gull Inn - Fish Creek, WI

The White Gull Inn is located at the very end of the west end of Main Street.  Heading in that direction, we thought we had lost our way but as the trees parted, the white house appeared.

Corned Beef Hash.  This dish arrived hot with eye appeal.  It fell flat with bland flavor combined with a burnt bottom.  How does corned beef not have massive flavor?

Ordered medium. It arrived well done and cold as if it sat too long waiting for the other food to finish cooking.  It wasn't overly dry but lacking any dripping goodness. The beef was bland.  The ketchup and mustard provided the flavor, and the veggies provided the moisture. Overall it was a fluffy light package.
  • Bun:  Kaiser roll, a little flimsy but then it wasn't hold massive weight or dripping with juice.
  • Toppings: Lettuce, tomato, red onion, with ketchup and mustard on the side
  • Cheese:  Declined extra cost Swiss or Cheddar
  • Meat: 1/3 lb Angus. It felt light and fluffy and not weighing as much as advertised.
  • Price: $9.50
  • Rating:  7.9.  It was just kind of there, almost if an afterthought to appease a meat eater forced to dine here.
The potato salad was a bland, warm mass.  It should have been cold at a minimum.

Cream of Broccoli Soup.  No subtle flavors here but a definitive jab of salt. Did the cook taste the soup first?  Richer and creamier than canned but nowhere near outstanding or packed with deep developed flavors.

Door County Cherry Stuffed French Toast with sausage. This was the reason we waited 30 minutes to be seated. We came on this trek to try what Good Morning America anointed to be the best breakfast in America. This dish did not disappoint and while it is difficult to say something is the best, this dish certainly would be a top contender in my book.  The flavors were subtle and need to be tried alone. The cream cheese provided a nice mouthfeel and density to the toast.  It was not overly eggy.  The bread held up well. The real maple syrup added a wonderful complimentary sweetness.  I normally pass on French Toast but White Gull's is the exception.  The accompany and extra cost sausage wasn't worth the extra almost $2,

Bottom line, the French Toast was worthy of its accolade.  I would certainly return for it but I'd pass on everything else.

Restroom Rating: 8.0 One of the better maintained restrooms despite the heavy traffic.
