The Waterfront Restaurant-Sister Bay

Saturday night, we went to dinner with our friends Lauren and John… they have been staying at Egg Harbor Lodge for years.  Lauren was our favorite nurse at St. Vincent Hospital when our son Josh had Leukemia in 1985.  We have kept in touch ever since and our Josh, Thank God, is perfectly fine.  Anyway, we decided to go to the Waterfront Restaurant in Sister Bay because it is Lauren & John’s favorite.  I am not usually a fan of expensive restaurants, because I love to cook and I always figure I can make the same things at home.  Well, in this case I would be so wrong.  There is no way in hell, I could make any of these dishes.  The food was amazing and the restaurant itself is just beautiful with a great view of the water.  For starters we had the seared sea scallops and calamari… really, really good.  I had the iceberg wedge with bleu cheese and the pulled duck confit with hand-rolled lemon thyme linguine and a pecorino cream sauce.  Lauren had her usual, the halibut and John followed suit. Mark had the sea scallops. It was truly one of the best meals ever, the only thing better was the company we kept.  After dinner we stopped at JJ’s next door (both restaurants are owned by the Johnson family). Mark was our DD, so the rest of enjoyed a margarita.  JJ’s is a hot spot for the locals… I know we love to head up to JJ’s when ever we get a chance, particularly in the off-season.   I love mexican food  and JJ’s is great.  Door County is fortunate to have so many really good restaurants and eating out is our my favorite thing to do.
