WE FOUND the waterfront bistro to be more upscale then the surrounding bar restaurants for the sunset dinner experience. Very good service with good food. The bar was nice and much less crowded with heavy drinking etc.

Love this restaurant. WE have eaten here numerous times over several trips and the food / service is always consistent. Love the mahi and mashed potatoes and bar drinks are very good. I would recommend reservations!

We always sit at the bar if we can and this time was no exception, the Husband and Wife team were great with menu and wine suggestions. The food was great, we had the scallops which were... More

Great atmosphere & right in the water. The food was pretty regular, nothing special or creative about it & over priced for its value. Bar drinks same Idea. Great service. Thank You to our waitress Nicole!!

We had been eating bar food all week, so we were looking forward to some finer dining. The food was delicious and the service was great. The short ribs were so good as was dessert.
