My husband and I made a reservation for 2 and were seated as soon as we arrived at a lovely table by a window overlooking the bay. We ordered the calamari appetizer and were blown away by it! Best calamari we had ever had as far as texture goes. Absolutely delicious! Our server brought out... read more

Girls weekend. Enjoyed craft cocktails and wine as well as wonderful seafood. Great selections. Tasty creations. We all enjoyed the food very much. Staff was helpful, friendly and good service. This restaurant is not really waterfront. Across street from the water with a little view, but not overlooking the water or on the water. Bar area is very small, but... More

The Waterfront has a classic upscale Florida menu with a casual feel. They offer seating inside and outside. Although we had thoughts of eating outside, we dined indoors this particular evening because of the high humidity and we were very comfortable. Overall, the Waterfront did a good job. Their wine list is diverse and plentiful enough to satisfy any diner's... More

Met our family from Bradenton here for lunch. We sat on the patio overlooking the water and the pier. We all chose a different entrée and no one was disappointed. The calamari appetizer, which 5 of us shared, was some of the best I have ever had. Grouper sandwich and grouper tacos were fabulous. A local fish, triple tail, was... More
