This was our second time staying in a condo with two couples. It was perfect. Location is quiet and the view is perfect. There are three bedrooms in the Schooner condo we were in. Two of the rooms are standard nicely appointed rooms and the other is a master suite. Need to flip a coin for that one. There are... More

We stayed here for an anniversary weekend. The room was clean and the sunsets were beautiful. On Saturday night we were treated to live music on the pier below the resort, which was really fun. WiFi was spotty, and TV was lousy (black and white reception only), but we managed.

As we were "wandering" Door County, we were always looking for a local place to have a meal or drink. This is one of the places we came across and enjoyed fully! Food was delicious, service was friendly, location and view were perfect. Seems we rarely have a bad experience when we just "wing it" and this place was no... More

The food is very delicious, simple not too fancy but very delicious. Very nice nautical decor and friendly staff. The only downside is that they are only open for dinner from 5pm to 8pm on Sundays and 5 to 9 on weekdays. We would definitely eat there again.

I came here to eat after a great charter cruise through Shoreline Charters near the tip of Door County and the food was wonderful:-). I had a smoked whitefish wrap that was to die for. There is a really nice patio overlooking the Mighty Lake Michigan from a slight distance. It's a great area for sunsets!! The options on the... More

Food, drinks, service, view - everything EXCELLENT! We got there on a night most places closed (Wednesday after Labor Day) and there was a bit of a wait so we ordered drinks and appetizers at the bar to enjoy on the back patio. It was such a lovely evening! Can't recommend it highly enough!

OMG - what a FABULOUS restaurant!!! This was our 1st time at The Shoreline - wonderfully elegant yet casual and homey!! The cuisine was varied with a wonderful selection of fish, beef, and chicken. Most unusual (for me, anyway) was to see my favorite Negroni on their bar menu! I was impressed! We had a table by the windows and... More

We stay at the ShoreLine every year for our anniversary. My husband always plans an awesome trip!! We usually eat several meals at the restaurant while we're there. Service is great, food is topnotch!! Lunch or dinner, you can't go wrong. Smoked whitefish wrap, pecan crusted walleye, blackened whitefish sandwich were among some of the items that were fantastic!!

My wife and I just returned to the Shoreline for my birthday. We got an upper story room with a fantastic view of the bay from our balcony. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff is always friendly and helpful. This is a great place to relax and unwind. We will be back!

The view and setting are first class! Relaxing environment. Cute shops in walking distance. Room furnishings need to be updated. We were told rooms had WiFi - only worked if stood outside the door in the parking lot.
