The Best Things About The Shoreline Restaurant

The Owners

Mike and Mary Mead took over The Shoreline Restaurant in 1990. Since then, they have turned it into one of Door County’s most beloved eateries. They are warm hosts and welcome every guest into their restaurant with unsurpassed hospitality that the peninsula is known for. Their menu boasts valued family recipes, daily features, and more Door County selections that will leave you hungry for more!

The View

During your meal, you will be greeted with stunning views of western Green Bay. No matter which table you are seated at, the large glass windows will allow you to enjoy the scenery. We highly recommend visiting the restaurant for dinner right before sunset. Watching the sun dip its toes behind the horizon, leaving a brightly painted sky is the perfect compliment to a romantic evening together.

Shoreline Restaurant Menu

The restaurant offers a lunch, dinner, and drinks menu. No matter what time you visit, you are sure to find a tasty dish that will send your taste buds on a delicious journey.

Our Favorite Lunch Selections

Smoked Whitefish Wrap: You will love the traditional Gills Rock whitefish smoked to perfect and then served in a spinach tortilla with cream cheese, chives, dill, sweet red pepper, and green onion.

Crab Melt: Imitation crab meat is piled on a grilled English muffin and served with tomato, swiss cheese, and guacamole.

California Dreamin: A juicy burger topped with the regular condiments and thousand island dressing on a toasted bun.

Our Favorite Dinner Selections

Michael’s Veggie Lasagna (Served on Saturdays): This masterpiece consists of zucchini, squash, bell peppers, baby spinach, and other tasty veggies. It is then layered with mozzarella, ricotta, parmesan, romano, and zesty tomato sauce.
