Maybe it was the unsatisfactory service that left a bad taste in my mouth, so to speak, but my party and I were not impressed with Bluefront. Upon entry, it was clear that the hostess didn't quite know what to do when there were more than two parties waiting for a table because she didn't take our name or the... More

Brought some friends from Florida here for the first time and wasn't disappointed. Enjoyed the meatloaf sandwich and the quinoa salad, the kale-apple salad was good but not what I expected, and was a bit disappointed in the banh mi sandwich, kind of bland for my tastes. Would definitely return.

We knew it was highly rated. My fish sandwich was: sourdough, walleye, and creamy coleslaw all in one bite, heaven.

They have a good feel for food, and the wait staff is professional and friendly. Happily surprised with a delicious noodle bowl. Fresh ingredients and reasonable prices.

I wouldn't think to go to a cafe/bistro to order a burrito, but man how that gamble paid off! One of the best combinations of flavor I've had all rolled up in a tortilla! Beers on tap are great, and they have a larger bottled microbrew selection as well. Great service in a fun and casual environment.

We tried to eat here tonight. The "hostess" left us standing in front of her register as she kept telling us she'd be right with us, while continuing to check out every table that walked up after we arrived. She couldn't take 5 seconds to get our name and tell us how long before being seated. After 12 minutes of... More

I sincerely apologize for your experience. This is most definitely not the Bluefront experience we strive for. We have addressed the situation and are working daily with this season's newer staff in order to avoid these kinks. Again- so sorry for your experience. More

We are from the SF Bay Area, and were pleasantly amazed by this bright little cafe in a rural area of Wisconsin -- super creative food, fresh and lively offerings. Healthy and very nice extensive menu. Great Asian noodle dish with ginger and excellent burgers. Super staff also!

Best pulled pork sandwich I have had in years. Wife had the turkey and brie with Door County cherry jam. Was unique and great flavors. Save room for the raspberry rhubarb ala-mode dessert. Decor was nice with ample room.
