“Nice, clean atmosphere with ok food”
Reviewed 11 April 2014

This restaurant is in the Oxford Suites in Silverdale, WA. It is a clean restaurant with about 30 tables both at the bar and eating side. Nice décor and tables and such. Staff is very friendly with the exception of one female bar tender/server in the evening. The restaurant serves breakfast to guest. It is a hot breakfast buffet that apparently changes daily. The morning staff was pleasant during my stay. The food was normal hot breakfast food. The breakfast buffet line was well maintained.
The evening Waterfront Bistro is a completely different story. Some of the staff is pleasant, sanitary and personable. Other's are quite the opposite. One evening a the female cook was making all the food with her bare hands, no gloves at all. The rude lady at the bar was just acting like everyone was just imposing on her time.
Now the food was tasty. I had the Double Cheeseburger and I must say it was plentiful and tasty. The cost was great at $10.95 with a nice portion of fries to go with it. The hotel has a nightly reception with soup, salad and 2 complimentary beers, glasses of wine or soft drink. The salad was just your run of the mill organic leaf salad mix. The soup on this night was broccoli and cheese. It was tasty also. They only thing that I found wrong was that they served the soup in these 1/2 to 3/4 cup size cups. You could only fill it part way in order not to spill it. They could have put out larger bowls.
All in all I can't speak for too much of the menu with the exception of my burger and breakfast. I would try something else on the Bistro menu if the opportunity arose.

“Served us expired beer!”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

Bartender was rude and served us expired beer. One beer was 3.5 years past the expiration date, the other was 3 months. Felt crappy all night and I can't imagine it was due to anything other than this. Amber did comp us for the appetizers, though. Pretty much the only decent thing about the visit.

“Bistro and rap ghetto”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

By day a mild mannered restaurant with exceptional food! They need to give themselves more credit for their offerings! Try the steak and bread combo, or the fish and hips. Huge portions and friendly, hometown style staff.

Leave before dark.

“Food is pretty good - listen to the waiter's suggestions”
Reviewed 7 February 2012

I hate here a couple times recently. The food is very good and you should take the waiter's suggestions. I ordered some fried oysters the first time I went. The oysters were not one of the waiter's recommendations and they obviously came into the restaurant frozen and were heated up/fried. The accompanying food was fresh and very good. My colleagues ordered some of the waiter's recommendations and they were fresh and were much better.
