Friendly staff, honest food, good quality food, nice portion size, modern enough interior, timely delivery. The menu options are not extensive but this place rocks, to meet with friends, have a quiet dinner with a special friend or to just enjoy a social business dinner. I had the stew and some Wisconsin beer and loved it. Do not expect super... More

My wife and I own the Pleasant Street Bed and Breakfast in Oconomowoc, WI which is known for great food and giving outstanding restaurant recommendations. During a recent trip to Door County, we stumbled across the Bluefront Cafe while we were shopping in downtown Sturgeon Bay. What a find! It's the perfect everyday restaurant - great food, moderate prices, warm... More

After driving by the Bluefront numerous times the last few years, we decided to finally give it a try. We're very glad we did. To begin with, they have one of the best wine lists we've seen in Door County. It's not large, but it has a number of nice choices. The special that night was ribs and they were... More

We enjoyed lunch here on our trip to Door County- best meal we had during our stay. The restaurant was busy and the staff was friendly. Everything we had was very fresh. Lots of tasty, healthy choices and great homemade desserts.

The reviews and that it in Best Chefs America drew us to the restaurant. We liked the atmosphere, upscale cafe, and the service was excellent. Unfortunately the food did not live up to expectations. My fish tacos were two generous pieces of fish which were they not smothered in a red sauce and cheese were probably pretty good. Spouses chicken... More

The Bluefront uses fesh ingredients and has a wide vaiety for their menu. This is a favorite of the locals as well as folks who come to Door County for vacation. My only regret is that they do not have breakfast anymore. All of their food is made with love.

The blue front always has consistent good food, excellent service too. The atmosphere is delightful . They have great desserts but often run out of the special ones. They vary their menu and have delicious homemade soups . Don't think we've ever had anything we didn't enjoy.

Every time we dine here we are delighted. Beautiful decor, with hand blown light fixtures and original art work, makes everyone feel relaxed and comfortable. Love the homemade soups and deserts. The food is fresh and flavorful. We have been coming here for years and treasure this restaurant.
