With a table looking directly out on the Bay in Door County's Sister Bay Waterfront Restaurant, we began a superlative dining experience. The Waterfront offers its diners' a sensational view that accompanies some of the finest dining in one of the country's premier vacation spots, Wisconsin's Door County Peninsula.

We had heard from a hospitality industry insider that the food would be exceptional and the scallops would be some of the best we've ever had. Well, he was right; the Waterfront didn't disappoint and was even better than advertised. Our scallops entrée was superb. The dessert was an added pleasure and the wine list outstanding. The entire experience was underscored by first-rate service from the hostess and our server. Clearly, we will be back. The Waterfront is Door County dining at its best!

We have eaten here many times and it is always outstanding food. The chef uses the Best ingredients around and makes everything from scratch.
I truly believe it is the Best restaurant in the Midwest!
Everything we have ever had was fabulous!
We have also been to Tapas night which is great to try so many of the chefs creations! Each prepared with so many wonderful flavors. A very talented chef. It is our favorite restaurant!
Service is great and the sunsets are spectacular!

We had reservations for three and got a table with great view of the lake. The food was tasty and welll cooked. We had the calamari followed by the entrees: scallops, perch, and seafood of the day (swordfish). Great service and good ambience. We'll come back again next time we visit Door County.

This place has spectacular views even on an overcast night. Lots of fun to watch the boats and water and sunset. My husband and I ordered the same .... Soup of the day and filet mignon. The soup was a corn jalapeno chowder with corn cake croutons and goat cheese ricotta.....yummy. The filet was served with mashed potatoes and harcort verte frits (I am going to have to try and replicate those at home). Both desserts were sumptuous.

We had the good fortune to have the most amazing meal in this restaurant. A beautiful setting with a gorgeous view of the bay and amzing sunset. the service was outstanding. I had the squid for a starter and my husband had steak tartare. Both excellent. I had the ribeye steak which was cooked medium rare as requested and it was one of the best I had ever had. This is a great restaurant which deserves its excellent reputation. A very memorable meal.
