A small party of us trusted ourselves to the hoped for tender mercy of the staff of the Waterfront Restaurant - and our hopes were not dashed.

Repeat visit here. Outstanding food especially the ahi tuna. Appreciate the more European pace but it did take 45 minutes just to get the bed basket. Things improved after we complained but I took a star off the rating anyway

The hostess' ensuring us a window table was the beginnng of a near perfect dining experience at the Waterfront. Matthew provided exceptional service. The tuna tacos were one of the best appetizers we have enjoyed as was the lobster bisque soup--it was so creamy and had a rich lobster flavor. We chose the seasonal fish of the day which was... More

The Waterfront offers its diners' a sensational view that accompanies some of the finest dining in one of the country's premier vacation spots, Wisconsin's Door County Peninsula. We had heard from a hospitality industry insider that the food... More

We have eaten here many times and it is always outstanding food. The chef uses the Best ingredients around and makes everything from scratch. I truly believe it is the Best restaurant in the Midwest! Everything we have ever had was fabulous! We have also been to Tapas night which is great to try so many of the chefs creations!... More

We had reservations for three and got a table with great view of the lake. The food was tasty and welll cooked. We had the calamari followed by the entrees: scallops, perch, and seafood of the day (swordfish). Great service and good ambience. We'll come back again next time we visit Door County.
