Myself and my Husband went to the Waterfront for our 2nd Anniversary and had a lovely night. All food was delicious. My Husband said the mussels with sweet chili sauce were the best he had had and he has had a lot! The waitress was lovely and very helpful. Ally managed to chat with us and other diners even though... More

We had dinner here with a group of 8. Despite the fact that we made reservations quite late, they managed to get us all around a big round table. There is lots on the menu, and for most of us it was good. Don't expect michelin star quality, but if you are going for decent pub food, this is the... More

Our meals were delicious, and in true Scottish style. The hotel is easy walking from most B and Bs. Although the evenings were very busy, service was spot on, friendly and nothing was too much trouble.

Booked here for dinner.. Great atmosphere and very busy but they had our table ready within 10 mins. Very good very friendly service from all staff. I can personally recommend the Steak Culloden. Cooked exactly as I asked. One of the tastiest steaks I have had in some time. Definitely worth a visit

Who would have thought that in Scotland you may find something different than fish&chips? Beautiful place, easy and kind waiters, nice location (despite the current works going on...) a definite must. Grilled fish at its best and down-to-earth prices. For everybody staying at Inverness, a place to visit and enjoy. Have fun!

I go here with my very elderly father every time I am in Inverness and have never been disappointed. The food is lovely,piping hot and the staff very friendly and accommodating. It is very unfortunate that,due to the road works, more people have not found there way to this cosy pub offering very good value.

We first tried the Waterfront in 2012 when we were in Inverness for a couple of days. It happened to be a Thursday, and that's the evening that there's live music by Kenny Jamieson, the lead singer of the group Schiehallion. We enjoyed the evening very much. This time, when we knew we would be in Inverness for a few... More

Recommended by our B & B host and we were not disappointed, it was a very wet night so it was lovely to go into this warm & friendly pub and order from the excellent array of Scotch Whiskies. Food was really good and service was great and excellent value, would recommend
