Like many I remember the Wharf from previous owners--it was a bar that you hit if you were in the area and turned 21. I went there recently and it has changed a lot due to the new owner. While still HARD to find it has changed. Sever was great. Good selection of beer and wine. Dinner was ok for... More

Best locally owned restaurant in Decatur. Always packed - there's a reason for that. Great food & friendly staff in a cozy atmosphere. Outdoor seating is nice touch when the weather is good. Reservations recommended if you don't want to wait - but we don't mind waiting at the bar. Always have a good experience here!

When you find this place you will love it. It was crowded so many have. I had the special which was Amberjack. It was done perfectly. We sat a bar because we didn't want to wait 1/2 hour to be seated. Servers were very attentive and took very good care of us. Would recommend. They have outdoor seating area also.

This is a wonderful place to go for great food. The staff will treat you like they know you. We sat outside and the outdoor seating was nice. Very good atmosphere, you might want to call ahead for reservations.

Great bar food and attentive service. The Wharf burger is one of the best anywhere, but it is messy. Typical average fries but onion rings were much better. Though interior has been updated it is still dated. Outside seating is great when the weather is nice.

Finally got to try this place. Once before it was SO crowded. Glad we got here just after 5 as the stream of people after us was never ending. Small but must be very popular. The burgers we ordered were HUGE and tasted wonderful! Had the sweet potato fries and the cinnamon butter was an excellent accompaniment. Will definitely be... More

My husband is a lover of sautéed chicken livers--The Wharf won him over with theirs! He has ordered them from Washington, D.C. to San Francisco and from Upper Michigan to Brownsville, TX, but the best ones ever are here in Decatur! They even smelled good to me, and I hate chicken livers. All the other food we have tasted there... More

We visit here more often now that smoking is no longer allowed inside. They have updated the entire restaurant and menu. They have excellent specials and good soup. The chili is awesome. We love the appetizer selection. The pork tenderloin, whether grilled or fried, is extra thick--not the smashed, thin pork tenderloin you get in fast food joints. This is... More

Great find. Four of us had hamburger , tenderloin, walleye, club sandwich. They were all great, good service. A little hard to find but it was well worth it. We will be back.

Very good everything: sandwiches, fish, sweet potato fries, service, salads, SWEET POTATO FRIES, even a low-cal plate. Seasonal outdoor seating relieves the very restricted indoor space. Go early or late to miss the crowd. Oh, and did I mention that the sweet potato fries should not be missed.
