We visited the GS/OB area last week and drove over to the Wharf one afternoon. I was amazed at how dead this place is. A lady in one store said traffic usually picks up around dinner time but even when we drove back over after 6 or 7, it still wasn't that busy (a few more cars and people but nothing major).
We had planned to have dinner at one of the restaurants but decided not to based on the prices--I'm amazed that so many of the places are charging such high prices! I've always considered GS to be a family friendly destination and there's no way most families can eat out at those prices.
I also thought the area was rather unattractive--maybe it needs more vegetation and less concrete? I certainly didn't really feel like I was at the beach. When I get things in the mail or on the internet from GS/OB, the Wharf is heavily marketed. Seeing it in person, I'm not that impressed. So, I'm curious as to whether or not others think it will make it?
