My wife and I ate at The Waterfront in Sister Bay on a recent Door County weekend. This place is new in the last 10 years so our first chance to eat there. We really enjoyed the meal, start to finish. (I had rack of lamb, my wife had fish.) Great atmosphere, well cared for by our server and the... More

We had a wonderful dinner at the Waterfront as part of our "Girls Weekend" in Door County. The food was tasty and the service was excellent. I had the brisket and it was delicious. I especially liked the green tomatoes. A bit pricey but worth it for a nice night out. The view was foggy but would have been beautiful... More

Made reservations for 6:45, showed up 30 minutes early and was immediately given a great window table looking over marina. The salads we ordered were amazing. Our main entree's were ribeye and halibut. My wife thought the halibut was great. My ribeye was probably over 20oz. Very large thick cut. Probably one of my top 5 meals I've ever had.... More

My husband and I visited Waterfront for the first time for our wedding anniversary. I wanted to go somewhere special. And Waterfront fit the bill! The service was top-notch, and the food - OUTSTANDING! And what a beautiful view of the water. Can't beat it! Can't wait to go back!!

We wanted to enjoy the water and this place was perfect. Everyone was friendly and provided great service. Had our cocktail outside by the water and moved inside for our meal. The server was fun, friendly and helpful. Our food was excellent.

Beautiful restaurant with stunning views of the harbor and sunset. I high reccomend making a reservation and being seated before sunset so you can watch while you dine on amazing cuisine. My husband and I both enjoyed the lobster bisque which was wonderful. I had the Ahi Tuna while my husband enjoyed the Scallops. Both dinners were amazing. A nice... More

My wife and I took a last minute trip up to Door County and stayed in Egg Harbor. We heard great things about the Waterfront Restaurant so we had to try it out. We ate on a Saturday night, and it was pretty busy, so reservations are suggested. We started with some fried calamari, which was delicious (very lightly fried... More

We've been coming to Door Co for easily 35 years and somehow this great place remained unnoticed to us. Turns out they've been here 10 years and Wow, what a great spot. As intimated in the title, it had been a nasty nasty day and evening weather-wise and we were in serious need of warmth and comfort. Waterfront did not... More

First time we ate here was right after a trip to France. I looked at my wife and said, "This is the best plate I've had all year!" In a word: Stunning! From atmosphere, wine list, menu this is a great experience. We've been many times and will go many more. Yes, get the sunset window seat (or eat on... More

One of our newest "annual traditions" while up in Door County is to always plan an evening around the Waterfront Restaurant. The views of the water from the dining room are hard to beat, and the decor of the restaurant says fine dining--but not in a stuffy way. A wonderful wine list, and cocktails from the bar never hurt when... More
