Terrific food, great service, modest prices

Came to Sturgeon Bay for the first time on business. Thanks to TA, found this wonderful gem. Prompt service, great mushroom and quinoa soup, light side salad and one of the best grass-fed burgers I've ever had. Oatmeal cookies and vanilla bean ice cream finished it off!

Came to Sturgeon Bay for the first time on business. Thanks to TA, found this wonderful gem. Prompt service, great mushroom and quinoa soup, light side salad and one of the best grass-fed burgers I've ever had. Oatmeal cookies and vanilla bean ice cream finished it off! Highly recommended coming from a picky Southern California eater!

Good wine, good food, and a fun atmosphere. The Fish and Chips special on Friday was delicious, and the beer cheese soup was delicious, too! The bahn mi sandwich wasn't quite what we were looking for, but everything else was memorable. A great choice in Sturgeon Bay!

We found this place on Trip advisor and went because of the number of good reviews. We weren't disappointed. This was a good mix for my wife and my differences. She likes quaint and pretty environment.... And clean. This place was very classy. You get an UPDATED BEACH HOUSE LIKE ATMOSPHERE. Very clean. Very friendly people working there. I care... More

This restaurant lives up to its great reviews and then some. Our food was done perfectly- from the fresh, crisp and juicy green beans accompanying my generous portion of salmon to the outstanding raspberry bread pudding with rum sauce, it was a delight from first bite to last. Great place to dine with an atmosphere that can be casual or... More

Excellent food in a small town restaurant. We ate a variety of food across the menu - fish tacos, bahn mi, club sandwich, muffuletta, chips, fries, salad, and desserts. Everything was tasty and reasonably priced. If you are in Sturgeon Bay, I highly recommend Bluefront.

Great place for lunch! We had the half sandwich and salad with the ham on the pretzel roll. Excellent ham and a very pretty and tasty salad with lots of fresh vegetables. Also had cherry pie a la mode. We would like to try dinner here in the future.

The Bahn Mi with the traditional fixings, liver and jalapeños, was incredible. It was my first meal in Door County and it set the bar high. I highly recommend going here. There is a limited menu selection but the prices are reasonable and the beer selections have something for everyone.

The Salmon, salad, and wrap were all delicious choices for our group! A little more on the expensive side ($15-25 per plate) but great quality and presentation. We rarely order dessert but our waitress talked us into it, and we were not disappointed; one was plenty for 3 to share!

We were in Sturgeon Bay to go fishing and wanted a place to grab dinner on a Friday night. Walked in and we were seated immediately. Wait staff was friendly and attentive. I ordered the fish and chips and I loved it. Very light batter with a delicious flavor and large piece of cod. Everyone at the table enjoyed their... More
