My husband and I were in the area and stopped in early without reservations. We were graciously seated by a window with the knowledge that the table was reserved an hour and a half later. The staff was courteous and extremely knowledgeable about each special available for the evening. We both ordered steaks that were prepared perfectly. The only reason... More

This is my 3rd time at Waterfront and it was about time I wrote a review. The food and service here have never disappointed. They have great seasonal menu changes and always execute their dishes well. The venue itself is breath taking with a nice sunset view over the marina. If you are looking for a fine dining spot in...

We had both chose whitefish and our dishes were excellent, gourmet, creative, and delicious. The service was very good. We had a lovely view over the water and watched the sunset. A delightful evening.

Wonderful food options, with lots of layers and complexity. Lobster bisque was fantastic and my favorite of the meal. Wait staff was fantastic! Definitely a must stop if you are looking for a great meal and a complex, rich flavor!

My wife and I dined here for our wedding anniversary, and it was easily the best meal we ate in Door County! Reservations are recommended days in advance and probably necessary at peak season. We booked at 5:30 spot on a Wednesday. There is no dress code, however, to feel comfortable, resort-casual attire is probably best. Most men were in... More

We made a Saturday evening reservation and were guaranteed a window table which was great for 3 people. As we were there early, the sun reflecting off the water was a little bright but no problem. Hostess lowered the shade to a satisfactory level. Food was really good, we had the spaghetti appetizer as well as stuffed dates and scallops... More

Our waitress, from Ireland, whose name escapes me, was hands down the BEST waitress we have ever had! Thank you for making our anniversary dinner memorable! You must try the scallops!

We wanted to go here a couple day ago but found they're closed on Mondays. So we made a reservation and got a guaranteed window seat, the view was excellent. But the food and service were even better. We ordered cocktails and they were flawless. The soup and salad were top notch, the entrees were the best we've had in... More

This was our second visit to this restaurant. The food was excellent and memorable and the setting is gorgeous. We were also impressed with the level of service that we received, especially since we had such a large party. This will definitely be our go-to restaurant for special occasions in Door County.

This is apparently one of the more upscale restaurants in Door County. The evening that my wife and I dined here the service, food, and atmosphere were excellent. Prices were higher than average, but in line with the quality. I had an ahi tuna dish that was both artistically presented and excellent in taste. My wife had a dish of... More
