I visited Shipwrecked while staying with a homegrown Sturgeon Bay family.

We were there in between the lunch and dinner crowds watching college football while the wives shopped so there wasn't much atmosphere to speak of.

As stated by others they had 6 beers on tap. I have to say I was disappointed by the plastic tasting cups and I only found one beer I would have again. They are definitely catering to the miller lite set.

Service was ok. We had lunch first and then stuck around for the samplers.

I'm glad I went, and being a beer geek, I would go again, but overall I was disappointed in the whole experience.

Stopped in on a Wed. to sample the beers and grab a snack on our way out of Door County.
Had the sampler of beers that came in 3oz. plastic cups even inside.
All the beers where nothing more than mediocre.
Also had a appetizer of soft pretzel bites with beer cheese sauce that was very good.
The service was by far some of the worst I have ever seen in a brewery. After our waiter brought our beers and appetizer he never stopped by again. He did stand and talk about his work history and ambitions in golfing with a couple a few tables away for the last 20-30 minutes we where there. We even had to get our bill from the bartender who was waiting on the other 3 or 4 tables that where occupied in the whole place.
All in all a very disappointing stop.

Was excited to come upon this place after a long morning ride from Green Bay. Beautiful day to sit outside and enjoy a gorgeous view of the bay. Ordered the sampler and an appetizer. The beers were jus okay, but it was beer—and I was happy. The crab dip was excellent and the service was good.

Great outdoor seating. Family friendly on a Wednesday afternoon. Good service at the table and bar.

Some decent in-house brews here. Food is good but not great. Very nice outdoor seating area. Indoor bar was somewhat cramped. Service is very attentive and there when you need them to be. Food did not take forever even with the restaurant being full.

Visited the brewpub while vacationing in Door County. Saw that it was the only microbrewery in the area, so decided to give it a try. Good location in a relatively busy town. Nice big patio, which is where we sat.

My friend and I got the sampler, which was served on a wooden board with a paper placemat identifying all the beers. Beers were served in little plastic cups. Not sure if you get real glass when you are inside, but the plastic cups were a little excessive. My wife got some wine, and she was served in a glass. Not quite sure what the rules were. The beers were pretty forgettable, and we did not have anything else past the sampler.

We got a chips and salsa appetizer, that was just OK.

Walked inside the bar, and saw that they had a nice window overlooking the brewery. The bar struck me as odd with the top being covered in industrial steel. Surface wasn't even flat. Decor was not very impressive either.

All being said, I will probably not be back if ever in Door County again.

Stopped in for a few pints while in Egg Harbor. I've been here numerous times just never put pen to paper before. Typical brew pub. Huge wood bar with high bar tables surrounding for eating and drinking. We sat next to the huge window that over looks the brew house. The brewer was actually in the brew house cleaning so that kept us entertained while we sucked down a few.

The beer was average at best. I got the pumpkin ale and my dad got the porter. Served in clean pints. They were out of the blonde which was a tad dissapointing when they only have 4 or 5 beer to begin with.

The wait staff was friendly and prompt.

Nothing really stands out about this place. Typical tourist trap with average beer. It's the kind of place I go to on every other year when in DC.

Shipwrecked is a nautically themed brewpub that sits on a prime corner in Egg Harbor, making it a go to destination for nearly every tourist that happens to walk by the place. The patio is situated on a triangle between two busy roads and offers up some excellent views and people watching. The "atmosphere" screams over-the-top, in-your-face, nautical and is clearly geared towards parting tourists from their money.

As for the beer and food, the beer sucks and the food looks pretty lousy as well. While I was willing to give the beer a go, I took a pass on the food and went elsewhere. There are six beers on tap, one of which is a seasonal beer.

Service is typical for a tourist area. That is not very good. Don't expect anyone to know anything about beer, either. This just isn't that kind of place.

One note, if you sit inside, they'll serve your beer in glass. If you sit on the outside patio, it comes in plastic cups.

If you need a beer fix, there is a market (Main Street Market) across the street that has a decent (not large, decent) selection of six packs and bombers that has more to offer than this place.

Right in downtown Egg Harbor, a nice looking enough place. Plenty of room both outside on the patio and inside the restuarant at lunchtime. Nice looking lengthy bar.

Six beers on tap - 5 regulars and one rotating seasonal. Summertime, so the rotate was a Hefeweizen. The sampler offers you all six, but in plastic cups, which is a bit of a downer. Its served on a placemat with a wooden plank, so at least its easy to maneuver on the table.

(The table of six next to me all were drinking bottled Bud Light, so what can you do?)

Decent enough food, pretty typical menu, sandwiches, burgers, some fish, basic apps. Nothing to go out of the way for, but the beers are pretty good - some better than others.

If you are in the area for a week, make a stop here, but don't need to plan around.

a decent stop for a brew in Door County, which is few and far between around those parts. some decent brews, but nothing special.

the atmosphere is sailor-themed (obviously), with a metal bar surface and a clean look. there are six brews on tap, five standard and one seasonal. the quality was good. the brews were all served in tumblers, but the bartender gave each a healthy head.

selection was average. six brews, pretty standard styles (porter, cherry wheat, blonde, copper ale, light ale, and an IPA), with a decent variety. the food is mediocre as well. do not expect much more than standard bar food with a little deeper of a menu. soups and sandwiches basically, with a bit more.

overall this is a good stop during a day trip or a weekend in Door County. it feels like the rest of the area, with a laid back atmosphere and reasonable prices. quality and selection are what hurts this place. the brewpub is part of an inn, so BAs can get a room for the night if driving is not an option. cheers!

Selection: 6 beers on tap. Three were of the generic all malt lager/golden ale/pilsener/boring/blah/yuck variety. One was a fairly decent, albeit light porter another was a perfectly respectable pumpkin brew, and the final beer was a revolting pale ale with cherry cough syrup dumped in it. The staff didn’t seem all that great accept for one waiter named Dave who seemed to know a lot more about beer and local watering holes than anybody else. Skipped on the food in favor of the pizza place around the corner. Enjoyed the seaside atmosphere despite its kitschiness because it just seemed to fit Door County. I think the slogan of the place pretty much explains their attitude about beer; “Get Wrecked at the Ship Wreck.”
