“Fabulous Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014

Four of us visited on a Wednesday night. Sat at the bar while waiting for a table. Friendly and attentive bartender. Bottle of wine appropriately priced (42$).
Ate on the patio. All of us enjoyed the baked Brie appetizer. All four meals were delicious; filet, shrimp and grits, scallop travolo and Frutti de Mare.
Highly recommend this restaurant for a nice night out as a couple or with friends.
Highly recommend this establishment over The Sandbar.

“Absolutely Delightful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

Incredible view, a friendly and attentive staff, and honest preparation of deviously fresh food.

It was our first visit, but definitely not our last.

Favorite items at our table were the Fried Green Tomatoes, the house-made Veggie Burger, and the Key Lime Pie. Incredibly delicious.

“Great food and nice view bay view from outside covered patio!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

My husband and I went to Waterfront Restaurant for lunch on a June Saturday afternoon. We sat on outside cover patio with ceiling fans which has a nice bay view. We had both White Wine Sangrias which were refreshing and delicious. I had the Turkey brie sandwich which was awesome. He had blackened fish sandwich which was also very good. It had a very nice laid back atmosphere. We both had on shorts, t-shirts, and flip-flops. We enjoyed our meals and time there.

“Wonderful spot for a wonderful meal.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

Whether lunch or dinner, and we did both, you can't go wrong with Waterfront. Great appetizers like House Cold Smoked Pacific Salmon, Steamed Clams or Tuna Sashimi. Crab Cakes, Fresh Fish Specials and so much more. Inside or patio dining with a wonderful bay view. Very relaxed and enjoyable. A must stop. Ask for Amanda!

“Great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014 via mobile

Stopped for lunch. Expensive, somewhat fancy food. They do a pretty good job of keeping the outside deck comfortable even in the June midday sun. The risotto was over salted, otherwise good food.
