If you want good seafood, this is the place to go. They have a good selection and the portion size is nice for leftovers! Definitely get the clam chowder! I thought the price was right, I want to pay a bit more for good food. Just don't let the name get your hopes up for a waterfront, it's just a... More

This was our first time here, the place has a lot to offer, though we didn't know it until later in the evening. I would have appreciated it if the waitress would have recognized we we first time visitors and explained a bit what they were all about. The wine selections were average. We will come back again.

We were hungry and walked away full. The food was good with medium-sized portions. The cost was a little high ~$55-60 for my wife and I.

If you like seafood, this is the place. Good selection and prepared well. Another plus is the fresh fish available for purchase directly from their front counter. They also have a decent beverage list as we'll.

Been here a few times and have loved the variety of seafood and the specials listed on the menu. Great selection of the sushi even though I'm not a particularly huge fan of sushi but what I have tried has been great. Highly recommend this restaurant when in the area... you wont be disappointed.

It's been a little while since I've eaten here, but we both enjoyed every meal we've had here. There's a good selection, my food has always been well prepared and appropriately seasoned. Worlds best, no. Good Seafood for Iowa, YES.

hi, This place has great food. If you eat in the bar or on the patio it is a great dining experience. However, if you eat in the dinning room it's as if you are in a high school cafeteria. Drinks are good and sushi is excellent.

Every chance my husband and I get we go to Waterfront for our date nights. Some of the best sushi around is made here. They have yet to disappoint. We've tried a couple other sushi places in the area and none have compared to the quality and taste of what the Waterfront provides. Hands down...love it.

Professional service. Food seems fresh. It seems quiet even when busy. Love the patio by the lake. Sour dough bread is awesome.
