Time travel. Wouldn’t it be cool? I would love to travel back into the different decades and see just what the world was like at those specific points in time. With Wilson’s Restaurant and Ice Cream Parlor, customers are able to travel back in time just for a moment.
Wilson’s reminds me of a diner, complete with a juke box, old Coca Cola artifacts, and good old-fashioned diner food. Whether you are craving a big, juicy burger or a banana split, Wilson’s diner food promises to satisfy all taste buds. Wilson’s has a wide variety of recognizable meals like burgers, fries, chicken tenders, chili dogs, and nachos, so you will never guess at what you are ordering. As for ice cream, there really is not a better place in Door County for ice cream. The restaurant contains a wall of flavors to choose from, my favorite being strawberry cheesecake, as well as many specialty creations. Of course there are shakes,malts, sundaes, and many ice cream dishes with delicious cherries.
Honestly, though, my absolute favorite thing about Wilson’s is the Coke. Being someone who appreciates a delicious Coke to get the day started, it is very difficult to find a place to simply purchase a Coke to go (besides my favorite Egg Harbor BP gas station). Most restaurants are sit-down; you could never find a Coke for the road. But with Wilson’s, it was possible to walk up, order a coke, and be on my way, making it easily one of my favorite restaurants in Door County. Oh the little things in life.
Wilson’s is located on Highway 42 in Ephraim, directly across from the bay so you can enjoy your ice cream right by the water.
