Walking in, you are greeted by the friendly owner. We were happy to wait for our beautiful window seat with the harbor view. Very nice/modern bar with cheerful bartenders. We were taken care of by our exceptional waitress - Kendall. She has a great touch for service and knows the menu very well and paints a beautiful picture of your... More

This is an upscale restaurant overlooking the waters Green Bay and the Sister Bay Marina. Great for sunsets. The food is fantastic and had been consistently so for years. They do not disappoint. We usually start with a Saphire Martini with blue cheese olives and go to the calamari or scallops for the appetizer. They have an excellent wine selection.... More

Our children gave us a gift cert for this restaurant as an anniversary gift. Although we go to Door County often, we never visited this place before. We were greeted like honored guests and seated at a fantastic window table overlooking the water. We ordered an appetizer of cheese and crackers which was very good. I ordered the wedge salad...

My husband and I first dined at the Waterfront on tapas night and were immediately hooked. I ate the scallop tapas/appetizer twice that night and it led to us having our wedding reception in their private dining space over a year later. The food is fantastic and the service is amazing. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about... More

Started with their spaghetti thought it was unusual for an appetizer but with the description we had to try it, delicious. Split a Caesar salad it included sun dried tomatoes with roasted garlic that was so soft and creamy, nice touch. Girlfriend had the Whitefish with a tomato sauce and fennel, I had the rib eye with Shiitake mushrooms and... More

We were warmly greeted by, Chris, and seated at a table by the window on a beautiful sunny evening. Our server, Melanie, was perfection. Delicious cocktails and great wine list. I had the halibut and my daughter had the whitefish. Both perfectly prepared and we shared to experience all the flavors. My husband had the fish of the evening and... More

Wednesday night is tapas night at the Waterfront. In the bar area. We always start with the lobster bisque. Excellent. There are so many good things. We like it because you can experiment. And the little lamb chops are superb. And then there is the calamarie and the scallops and the tempura rolls and the cheese plate and the lump... More

We picked this restaurant our first night in Door County and it set the bar high. We were sat by the windows (without having to request it which was a nice touch) to enjoy the beautiful views. The staff were very nice and attentive without being remotely annoying. The wedge salad was delicious and lobster bisque scrumptious. Both our pasta... More

Looking for an early dinner option we called Waterfront who squeezed us in. The space is open and elegant. I would recommend business casual attire. The dinning room overlooks a small marina. Bring your camera for beautiful pictures. The service is paced to let you enjoy your meal. The flavor of the food is amazing.
