“Okay but not worth a special trip”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014 via mobile

Beautiful view, decent service but just average food. Chowder was fairly bland, the smoked whitefish wrap and grilled whitefish sand which were presented nicely, but again just okay. Service was good.

“Great food and view from Shoreline in Ellison Bay WI”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2014

The view of Green Bay and the sunset from Shoreline is a bonus to a good food at a fair price. The bonus is that the hostess/owner is a knockout with a great smile and friendly attitude. Don't miss the Whitefish chowder.

“View, good food, comfortable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2014

We stopped here while biking. The view of the lake is fantastic. We ate inside, but they also have outdoor seating.

I had a whitefish sandwich - it was really good. They have some good beers on tap. The service was good.

I'm definitely coming back.

The food was great and so was the service. It is such a beautiful view especially at sunset. Great full service bar.

“Good food, nice beer selection, grab a seat outside before going in to order”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014

I don't like when places leave it up to you to fight over tables. The Bahama Breeze near us did this with the outdoor seating for a long time. Why would you put in outdoor seating? Because people like sitting outside when it's nice. So would you make your whole nice restaurant a seat yourself and order at the bar situation? No because that would be dumb and or a hot dog stand. So if you want to sit outside here sit down at your chosen table then go order food at the bar. I think they said they bring the food out to you...strange.

The food was good. The jerk fish sandwich was good. Dripping juicy messy and I needed to wash up afterwards but good. Onion rings are standard. Cole slaw was above average and the fruit selection side was outstanding. The place reminds me of Red Lobster inside; forced authentic boaty fisherman scurvy wharf but that's probably what people want. Sandwich slaw and a couple pieces of yummy fruit is enough for a meal but it's not the same as with fries for the same price at other places so maybe a high 2 dollar signs for cost. I would definitely try this place again at least once for the smoked fish wrap
