The Coyote has great food and a great atmosphere. It’s a very friendly locals place, the big feature when you walk in is the bar, packed with the fine Baileys Harbor and Egg Harbor citizenry. Local politics is not off-limits here, and this is where you go to get a plumber, a garage built, or some excavating work done.
This is also the place to get really good food. It’s a simple menu, but with a couple of twists. There are burgers, and chicken sandwiches, some salads, chili, and soup. But there is also exceptional ribs, pork chops, and steak. There is also Jambalaya, probably the second best in the county (mine is the best!). And it is a pile of Jambalaya, big shrimp, corn muffin…mmmmm!
And there are specials, walleye on Wednesday, grouper on Friday. In the winter there are seasonal specials, my favorite is the turkey pot pie on Tuesday.
Oh, and lest I forget, the onion loaf. Order this, trust me!
There are maybe 10 tables in addition to the bar, so there can be a wait sometimes. But in the summer you can also sit outside on the patio overlooking the lake.
So, when you are in Door County, do yourself a favor and go inland to the Coyote Roadhouse. Leave Egg Harbor and go straight out Co Rd E to Kangaroo Lake…well worth the drive!
