We usually sit in the bar. Great bartenders great food. The eggplant app isn't fried which is a plus for me. Calamari is a favorite of my husband. The only thing I miss is the out door dining.

Came here on the advise of a local person we met at Ocean Beach Park. Our waiter Dan was great. Would definitely come back here if we're in the area.

Great food and atmosphere. The wait staff was awesome. Cant' beat the view of the water. We're from Texas and my mother-in-law takes us there each time we go to visit. Looking forward to our next visit.

Seafood dishes here are the best in the area! The calamari is the way to start then go for the big catch. Always fresh and nicely presented with great sides. The meat lovers in our group raved about the Cowboy steak and chicken parm w/delicious side of marinara. Great dining experience and fun bar. Live music on Friday nights in... More

On The Waterfront is one of the areas best restaurants. Whatever you order, you won't be disappointed! ... And the desserts....oh my goodness. The tartufo and lemon cake are well worth ordering dessert first then dinner. :-)

This restaurant has become a second home to my family, friends, and me. Stash and his committed staff go above and beyond to make sure their customers have a memorable experience, which is why we will continue to make this place our destination for family dinners, birthdays, engagement parties, showers, and funeral receptions. I've never seen an owner more passionate... More

My wife and I always enjoy the time we have at On The Waterfront. Well worth the dinning experience. Love the steaks and sea food. The Italian food is to die for. Looking forward to our next visit.

I was saddened to read the above mentioned reviews. On the waterfront is consistently great from food to service. It's river view dining is an experience like none other. People should understand that you cannot base the quality of a restaurant on one dippy waitress. I would recommend this establishment with the highest regards. My dining experience was superb from...
