“Great View & Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2013

This is a great location for watching the sights and sounds of the harbor. We have had lunch here a few times, and it has always hit the spot. On our most recent visit I enjoyed the portobello sandwich with cheese and spinach, with a side of the 4 bean salad. They also have a good selection of beer and wine. And luckily the outdoor seating is huge so ample opportunity to find an outdoor table.

“Fun Restaurant; Good Food; Great Views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2013

We didn't plan to, but we ended up eating lunch and dinner in this restaurant on a recent November Saturday.

We were looking for a restaurant with a waterside view and a seafood menu...this fit the bill for lunch and we were seated in the bar area by the window. We really wanted to have lobster rolls, but to our surprise, they didn't have them on the menu. We actually decided to leave, and talked to the manager on the way out. She assured us that we could indeed get lobster rolls - they just weren't on the winter menu. So we stayed and had some lobster rolls, beers and Bloody Marys. One member of our party even had the whole lobster. We were glad we stayed because we enjoyed the food and the atmosphere.

Later that night, we were in a group of 8...after talking through a few options, the group settled on Waterfront, so that's how we ended up there twice in one day.

For dinner, we tried the lobster chowder (lobster stew?) and a whole lobster. Again the food was good and a good time was had by all...this is not fine dining, but a good option for casual lunch or dinner on the water.

“Best meal we had in Camden”

We went to the Waterfront at the suggestion of friends we were visiting, who live there. We had a good dinner, excellent service, and very nice atmosphere. We would go back there again.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2013

We came through Camden and found this restaurant located in the sun at the Harbor side. We did expect ot have a good view - but nothing else in particular. Fortunately we were very positively suprised and enjoyed our lunch so much - that we 2 days later came back for the same. Very good inded

“Greeat view; good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013

It is such a joy to be able to sit on the water and so few places in the world allow this. To be able to enjoy the view and have very good food is even better. We had a great lunch here, feasting on east coast seafood. Sigh!
