We found a favorite new spot. The bartenders are very friendly, the place was clean and we had a very nice time every time we went there. The view is amazing and the maitre d always has the best shirts on.

I've been here a couple times, always for lunch. Consistently good from soup and salads to seared tuna and eggplant rollitini. Great view even in winter and a little more upscale then most of the neighboring restaurants.

They serve some killer drinks and are wonderful entertainment to watch. Plenty of characters here. Never ate the food but heard it's great. Good views.

As always had a great time at on the waterfront. The bread with fresh garlic butter is always something to look forward to, I stuck with my normal chicken parm over rigatoni but most importantly my pistachio cake! YUM!!! Thank you Stash for an always amazing dinner. (Took the cake to go)

Stash & staff were very accommodating to our special needs. Arrived at 3 stayed til 6:45. We sat in the best table in the house, knowing we had to vacate at 6 for another party. This was our choice, and they moved us to another table in the lounge for us to finish up our visit with old friends.

The food was great, they give you a lot. They have a mixed menu, Greek, American, and Italian. I got the bacon hamburger and French fries. Other people in our group chose the fish and chips. They stated their food was also delicious.

Stopped in to waste time. We had some beer and a plate of calamari. We enjoyed our short stay. The menu looked awesome. We will have to come back when we have more time. Enjoy

This is my second review and once again 'On the Waterfront ' is worth a visit. Great staff! Our favorites are Lisa and K.O. Those two waitresses are TOPS. Get down here!!
