Door County is famous for fish boils and the White Gull Inn is one of the two establishments that started the popular spectacle and meal dating back to 1959. The White Gull recently won the DoorCountyDailyNews.com Best of Door County and owner Andy Coulson credits his staff and the excellent master boilers he has had over the years.
Coulson purchased the White Gull Inn back in 1972 while offering fish boils year around with four times a week during the summer. The traditional fish boil features lake Michigan whitefish, small red potatoes and salt. Melted butter is served over the meal with side dishes of coleslaw and Swedish limpa rye bread along with a slice of homemade Door County Cherry Pie to top off the traditional fish boil feast, according to Coulson.
