I live in a town of supper clubs and family restaurants so the elegant presentation of every course was a real treat. Even a cup of coffee was exceptional. Pricey but worth every penny for this dining experience.

Well 10 years ago we had a fantastic dinner and sunset at the Waterfront! Sad to say that his visit was a real disappointment !

They have a new chef that is trying to make every dish something extraordinary by using curry and ancho chili to just about every dish yuk!

I had the pork shank and they add curry to the sauce of a Wisconsin pork shank! The flavors were at conflict and ruined a great pork shank! My wife had a rib eye beautiful steak but it had a leek Demi glaze with it that destroyed the flavor of the steak! Ok change the menu but someone please taste what your serving other than a chef want to be!

Finally service! What service ! Our server over charged us for our drinks, never came back to ask how are food was and only offered desert after we asked for a menu!

Lastly you go to the Waterfront for the sunset! The hostess came by every 5 minutes disturbing our dinner to adjust the blinds to block the setting suns glare. If we would have not wanted to see the sunset we would chosen a different resturant !

Sorry to say pass on the Waterfront until they get a real chef!

Absolutely outstanding; By every sense of the word! Excellent staff with Chris guiding the team. Almost every table offers a view of the water and hoped for sunset. When nature is at its peak, there is a convenient access to the patio to capture that perfect sunset with an unobstructed view.
The bar offers double Old Fashioned glasses that are excellent with any cocktail. And prices are reasonable. But even with all this said, the absolutely best part of your visit will be the out of this world best FOOD!
Each item is tasty and well presented. Savor the best lobster bisque, truffle pappardelle, tenderloin, scallops, and the list goes on!
For one of your best evenings in Door County, the Waterfront Restaurant is a must.

The view is spectacular. The culinary experience was second to none. Our service was impeccable.
We will return to celebrate next year.

We celebrated our anniversary dinner here and had a great table with a water view. Unfortunately, it was a cloudy evening so we didn't have a beautiful sunset. But the service and food were fantastic!
