We weren't really bothered by it as we weren't in a hurry and it was a nice night out. They even brought us bug... More

Had a great lunch with delicious food, and a pleasant server. Ordered the scallop and shrimp basket. My dad had a burger. Both meals were fresh and hot. Ordered a chocolate dessert which was amazing!

Went to the waterfront tonight with my family that just moved to St. James City. We were greeted with a friendly smile from Ami and sat on the deck with an excellent view of the bay and canals. The food was excellent especially the stone crab! They were fresh and flavorful, definitely a must have. Ami was very attentive and... More

Waterfront is the last stop before the bay! Great atmosphere both inside and outside at tables by the water. The fish is fresh and the staff are very friendly. Waterfront is definitely worth the drive for a relaxing bar lunch.

Been here twice and we just love it! Perfect spot on the water at the end of Pine Island. We enjoy sitting outside, but inside is great a hot day. Love the food! Took family there from out of town and it's like going back in time. No rushing, no attitude, just always very friendly manager and wait staff and... More

Was there frequently in the past and learned this Wednesday that you get domestic draft for 75 Cents if you order any food. Easy to reach by boat as located like 3 or 4 home sites behind the outlet to the open waters. Convenient docking spaces provided, great service and no robbery as other places you get to by boat.

Thank Kurt727
