The Viking Grill
Home of our World Famous Fish Boil!


Annette and Lawrence Wickman began their whitefish boil back in 1961, they already knew local people would support their venture. The fish boil seemed like a logical solution to increase business at their restaurant, The Viking Grill. Since trout was in short supply, Lawrence turned to the plentiful whitefish, a fish caught locally, insuring a fresh product. Served with new potatoes, little white onions, coleslaw, bread, lemon wedges and topped off with a piece of Door County Cherry Pie — The Viking Fish Boil was a hit! Today, much about the Viking Fish Boil remains the same- from the attention paid to fresh ingredients, the picnic-like atmosphere, the drama of the preparation and the fiery boilover - to the satisfied customer who has just finished a meal they will remember for a long time to come. Come take part in an historical event at one of Door County’s dining landmarks - The Viking Grill in Ellison Bay. Make it your Door County tradition!
