My wife and I went to the Waterfront for an aniversary lunch. The food was excellant. My wife had the stuffed shrimp and I had the fishermans platter. Both were excellent. The resturant sits at a marina and the view of the boats and waterfront were great. I did not give it 5 stars because of the limited parking available.... More

This was my first time at this restaurant and I was impressed with the service, view and food. It was a very busy Friday night with large parties (one had 20 in the main dining room) but we had great service and a lovely dinner. We don't get a lot of seafood where we live so we dined on the...

The location was great - we had a table next to the windows overlooking the Thames River and marina - lovely. Food was decent but not "wow". I loved the garlic herb butter. Two of our party had salads in large taco bowls with grilled chicken which they enjoyed. I had the baked haddock which was good, and mashed potatoes.... More

My wife and I went to the waterfront for our ten year anniversary and it was GREAT! We had the Zuppa and the Chicken parm and both of the dishes were excellent. Our waitress Jennifer was very helpful with our menu selections and made our evening very enjoyable. We plan on returning to the waterfront as often as possible.

Maybe we ordered the wrong things or ate at a completely different restaurant than the people who gave this place 4 and 5 stars. The only thing worth MAYBE 4 stars was the service and the complimentary bread. The rest of the food was overpriced and just not good. I recommend not eating here, but if you can't avoid it,... More

We were a party of six on a Thursday night and arrived without reservations. We were graciously greeted and promptly seated at a corner table near the window overlooking the Thames River and two busy marinas. I had the Cod Mediterranean and it was quite possibly one of the best restaurant meals I have ever had. Amazingly it tasted completely... More

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.
