We discovered this restaurant by accident, happily. And to think it is has been in our neighborhood for 21 years! We arrived late evening during the week and discovered a lovely and spacious interior with bar, table and booth seating. Our waitress, Linda, who has been at the restaurant for its 21 years, was simply delightful: friendly and helpful in... More

Outside dining available. We chose inside booth.. Great view of canal and sunset. Both dinners were the best. Soup and salad also...... We also met friends at bar after dinner.. Good drink prices.. Watch for the happy hour and the early dinner specials too.. We eat out often ..usually the same places.. We will add this to list.. Wonder why... More

Had a wonderful time with my favorite bartenders. Awesome drinks. Sunset was really nice off the back and now it's time to jump on the boat and enjoy the great weather!

We went to Waterfrontoo with a large group of 17 tonight - a challenge for any restaurant! But Waterfrontoo was totally up to the challenge!

As locals for over 10 years, we have patronized this restaurant many times. Normally, we are satisfied with both the service and the food, but this trip was HORRIBLE!!!...The service at the bar was typically friendly and attentive. The food on the other hand was BAD. We both got the gyros, to go, as is our norm. We've had them... More

Hi Peggy, Sorry to hear about the gyros that night. I'm glad the gyros you have had in the past here were good. Next time you visit ask for me and I'll make it right. Also for the future try and review the good times as well! Happy Holidays! More

Honestly I didn't even consider trying salmon let alone liking it- but this blackened dish is the best we've ever had anywhere in the area ( maybe the world) Of course once you've had it- you'all crave it. Now the decor needs updating- but the food is always good. The canal view in the back is relaxing too. One of... More

Sat by the window so we could see the water.... had a great server. Wine was $3 per glass before 6:00. We both had the coconut shrimp, fries and salad... it was really good.

Many dishes on the menu are very good and the owners are very much in attendance, checking to see if people are happy. The drinks are fairly priced. The bartenders might as well being working at Hooters as the 20 somethings seem to dress to get tips - low, low tops, tight jeans, etc., which appeals to guys but seems... More
