At Waterfront Restaurant we focus on creating an unforgettable night out. We feature a creative, seasonal menu showcasing produce and ingredients from exceptional farmers, fishermen & purveyors — all in a relaxed yet refined, waterfront setting.
Tucked up against the shores of Sister Bay in beautiful Door County, our goal is to create a dining experience that complements the brilliant views seen from the warmly elegant dining room. The intimate outdoor patio is especially attractive on summer evenings, when spectacular sunsets await. Our service is attentive, warm and professional and our entire staff is passionate about delivering food and experiences that will keep our guests coming back again and again.
Waterfront’s World-trained and traveled Chef creates memorable and creative menus that incorporate house-made stocks & sauces, beef that is cut specifically for us, fish that comes from our own local waters or is flown in fresh daily and pasta that is rolled by hand. We can’t wait to help you create Door County memories.
Warm & Elegant
Gorgeous and warmly elegant, Waterfront sits up against the shores of Sister Bay. The open atmosphere of the dining room offers a sophisticated yet relaxed style, as walls of windows provide 180 degree views of a sparkling Lake Michigan and unobstructed nightly sunsets. As the last of the sun sets over the Bay, hand blown sconces cast warm, soft light over the lively room at dusk.
The thick granite-top bar sits proudly over modern stained cement floors in the grand foyer, offering a relaxed yet elegant atmosphere for a cocktail, appetizer or casual dinner.
The intimate outdoor patios are especially charming on summer and fall evenings, when the breeze brings in fresh lake air and spectacular sunsets are a nightly affair.
