Excellent chef! My hat is off to the chef. We had an excellent dinner and what a romantic setting! Would highly recommend this restaurant if you appreciate fine dining and don't mind paying a little extra for it.

We went to Waterfront on our first night in town. The food was good. I had a very creamy lobster bisque and a ravioli appetizer that was a flavor explosion. My husband had fried perch that was also very good. All in all it was pricey and I think we could have had equally good food somewhere else. I would... More

We have gone to the Waterfront Restaurant many times over the years and have always enjoyed both the food and service. All their entries are outstanding and you just can't beat the view of the water ( especially at sun down).

This experience was outstanding on every front. The hostess, bartender and server were all at the top of their games. We relaxed and watched the sun set over the bay with cocktails before dinner. The bartender actually carried them to the patio for us. When time came for dinner the service and food were both impeccable. Salads were delicious. My... More

Dinner at Waterfront was a nice experience. Our table faced the marina so we got to enjoy the the boat and fishing activity. The hostesses were friendly, and waitress helpful. I have a restrictive diet and she went back and forth to the chef to consult on what would be the best meal for me. My husband and I both... More

Great food, great staff, great view. Not much more to say. My wife and I enjoyed everything about this place. It's on the main drag in door county but unless you are looking for it, you'll miss it. Make sure you write down the address.

We dined here on my birthday while vacationing in Door County! The very accommodating hostesses were able to seat us at a table overlooking the water! A perfect place for a perfect sunset! I ordered the Spring Greens Salad which at the time had dried cherries on it! Very good! Hubby ordered the Caesar! Probably one of the best Caesar... More

The Waterfront is located on the lake with lovely views. The restaurant interior itself is elegant. Go for sunset and have a cocktail on the back deck before dining. We enjoyed our dinner, although I would say the food was good, but not outstanding. Although most offerings are seafood, there are a few options for the carnivores in your group.... More

All the reviews are right-great dining with wonderful sunset views. Debbie was an outstanding waitress, and the food was delicious. Great ambiance and certainly the happening place that gets busier as the night goes on. We were not disappointed.
