we had a group dinner here, the meal was good, standard fare at reasonable prices, the mid week special with wine was a fantastic deal. Service was excellent (at times very tolerant with some members of our group)

We have been enjoying the food at On the Waterfront for several years now. From the warm bread and garlic butter to the fresh seafood, we have never had a bad meal. A couple of our favorites are shrimp parmigiana and the Cod Mediterranean. The staff treat us like family! Their desserts are delicious too but we rarely have room... More

We frequent this restaurant several times a month throughout the year. The food is always good and there are always specials on the menu that are great. Throughout the year we always enjoy the view of the river and the ferry traffic during our dining. The wait staff is always friendly and accommodating.

Reliable, delicious food. Great specials. Stash runs a great place. Things are best when he is there, which is most of the time.

Been eating here a few times a year when we want some better food for dinner but still at a decent price. Fun staff, good location, great view, above average food, and all at a decent price. Have never been disappointed here!

Visiting New London family we were taken to dinner. Nice menu good choices. Jack Daniels Steak wad good. My wife requested off menu and was served a pasta premavera to meet her Vegan needs and she loved it! Sauce on shrimp parmigiana very nice shells on shrimp not so nice. Otherwise this could have been excellent

This restaurant offers a great menu selection along with lots of specials such as a free bottle of wine with 2 entrees on Mondays. The restaurant sits on the waterfront and has a great view of the marina.

I went here again to visit with friends and wonder why people rate the food so highly. I enjoyed talking with friends, I enjoyed the atmosphere. The service was acceptable. But the food was plain and bland. I realize that some people like bland food or that it is possible that only my food was bland based on only 3... More

If you get there in summertime, you can enjoy outside seating on the deck which is right on the water. Wonderful place for dinner and glass of wine.

Located on Piquet. Ave in New London Ct., On the Waterfront overlooks the Thames River and is near many of the local marinas. Any place in the dining room offers a nice view. The menu has a wide variety of fish as would be expected. Also there are LandLubber favorites. I had the grilled Tuna which was done to perfection.... More
