Really tasty!!

Placed a to-go order tonight from the Bluefront Cafe. We ordered the appetizer fries with dipping sauces, fish tacos and the bahn mi sandwich. All that could be heard while we ate were the 'yummy' noises we were making! Our meal was fantastic....the fries had a light batter and were crispy, with... read more

Found out about this place on Trip Advisor. I agree with all the positive reviews. This is a gem, not to be compared to ordinary places. The food is so fresh and tasty. The building is open, light and decorated with care. Loved the fresh flowers on each table and the linen napkins, things that show they care. I ordered... More

This restaurant is worth a try. The food I chose was delicious. I was slightly disappointed with the $3.00 extra charge to split a plate and the fact some of the menu items insisted you did not make alterations on your order. The prices were decent. I would recommend this place to someone who is willing to try new things... More

My wife and I went to the Bluefront Cafe for a nice quiet dinner and this is exactly what we got. Excellent service but most of all the food. My wife had the portabella lasagna and I had the Banhmi sandwich authentic style. My wife's lasagna was awesome. So hardy you would have thought it had meat. My sandwich was... More

Even on a cold winter's morning, you'll see people sitting by the nice bay windows enjoying the camaraderie of this wonderful place. The owners have lots of experience and they come up with great recipes for us to enjoy. Yummy soups, sandwiches (like grilled cheese with broccoli!), breakfast goodies and other temptations. We have been there many times for breakfast... More

Thanks for the 5 stars, but you are actually reviewing the Blue Horse Bistro in Fish Creek ( by the way, I would have to agree, Blue Horse is a great place!) Susan @ the Bluefront Cafe More

A quaint little restaurant on Maple Street in beautiful downtown Sturgeon Bay, on the West side near the waterfront. Very healthy choices and gluten free options available. Personally I like the Angus cheeseburger with homemade fries - and before you get all over my case - it appears to be healthy as a burger can be. Fresh ingredients and homemade... More

A favorite for lunch and dinner. LOVE their fish tacos and variety of vegetarian options! Serve beer and wine. Kids love the snack plate.

Delicious food. Chicken curry salad sandwich was very tasty. Also had the hand-cut fries that were also good. My husband got the Bleu cheese potato salad which was perfect. We waited a little but we're greeted and a different person apologized for the short delay as well. Only warning: (early April) they were closed Sun and Monday.

usually a wait for a table and too get food. Would agree food is okay no real ambiance and loud. Wait staff frequently indifferent. Many people living in the area go here. Would not recommend taking kids due to the wait, and tight quarters of the tables.
