We had a very typical lunch here, but it was above average in quality. Pricing was what you would expect in a resort area...still reasonable though. We sat looking out on the bay and it was lovely. You can also sit outside. Would definitely go back and sample their dinner menu.

This is an old fashion Super Club. It has an extensive menu and features the local white fish. Our party had Chicken Parmesan and a chicken, scallops pasta. For starters, we were seated right away and in a very short time, we had our pre-dinner cocktails. Our server was very helpful and efficient. We did start with an order of... More

Beautiful scenery and great tasting seafood. We stumbled on it by accident but we were very pleased. Only downside is it's only open for dinner from 5 to 8 pm

The Shoreline restaurant is way up in GillsRock, not Ellison Bay. Go there for the food and the view, both are awesome! The owners really seem to care about the quality of food, service, cleanliness, everything. One person in our group had whitefish chowder and said it was excellent. One person had a shrimp Rockafeller pasta dish and thought that... More

We stumbled across the Shoreline on an exploration day in Door county. We were seated at a window view table and enjoyed seeing the beautiful view of the bay and the ferry coming back from Washington Island. Our server was pleasant and attentive. Best perch plate I've had in a long time-- melt in your mouth fillets... my husband enjoyed... More

Wonderful location overlooking the water and excellent perch dinner. During our stay in Door County, we were on a quest for the best cherry pie, which we found at the Shoreline Restaurant.

The view of the bay from the restaurant was beautiful and the grilled whitefish was delicious! But, the waitress was probably overworked and a little grumpy.
