Door County is known as the Cape Cod of the Midwest. Small coastal towns. Cottages on bluffs overlooking the water. Local coffee shops. There is a reason that this coastal community has quickly become one of my favorite weekend getaway destinations. You come here and forget all about the hustle and bustle of your regular schedule. You sleep in most mornings, enjoy a cup of coffee while looking out over the water, spend the afternoons in the sun, and then go out in the evenings for dinner and drinks. Fred & Fuzzy's

Fred & Fuzzy's Waterfront Bar & Grill is located in Sister Bay on Pebble Beach, just off Highway 42. Tucked back amidst a resort, this restaurant overlooks the water and is the perfect spot to enjoy the sunset as you are finishing up dinner and enjoying a drink or two.

The items that fill the menu consist of your standard bar and grill food - burgers, sandwiches, wraps, jalapeño poppers, a few salads. The cherry margaritas and Moscow Mule, along with the brews from Wisconsin, are worth the visit alone. Being a foodie, I would like to see higher quality food, but can appreciate what it is - bar food. In my opinion, the real star of this restaurant is the atmosphere.

Fred & Fuzzy'sI would highly recommend going to Fred & Fuzzy's if visiting Door County - it is the perfect spot for an outdoor meal. I have never had a bad experience and have been very happy with the service that we receive. A note to keep in mind: during the hot summer days, this restaurant can get crowded, so don't be surprised if you have to wait.
