Every year we make a point to have a sunset dinner here. The food and service are top notch. The wine list is excellent. The view is incredible. It isn't a bargain, but it's a fair value for the food, experience and ambiance.

So glad we chose this restaurant!!! The scallops were the best I've ever had! Everything was impeccable. Fabulous service, fabulous wine, and everyone in our party had an amazing meal! We will be returning for sure.

This is my hands down favorite restaurant in door county. The views are great, the service impeccable, and the food sublime. The scallops are cooked just right and the risotto side was excellent.

This is only the second time we visited the Waterfront. I thought the first visit was a fluke because the food and service was so great. Last week was our second visit and it was even better! Five of us selected 4 different entrees and...More

Beautiful views of the sunset. I had the lamb chops - they were fantastic. We were surprised they didn't have more local seafood/fish since we were right in the lake?

Spent a couple of New Year's eves here. Great food and service. I'm sure it's just as wonderful in the summer but we went next door to JJ's during our summer visits.
