Not Healthy, but Great Taste!

Hard to find being hidden behind Arbys, but worth the effort to find. Unique food that's not health, but tastes great.

This has a real small town feel with friendly staff and good food. They have added a patio to increase the seating capacity as there aren't very many tables inside especially hard to get a table at peak times. Can't go wrong with a Wharf burger!!!

What can I say other than I have never had a bad meal here. The place is super dark, no windows, like the bourbon barrel, with similar food. Delicious. Get the Wharf burger, it will blow your doors off. Huge tasty burger and fries that you cant finish. Hard to find if your not familiar with Decatur, but definitely worth... More

The pick 3 platter is the best. The deep fried chicken livers and mushrooms are the best I've had anywhere. The mushrooms are sliced, fresh , battered & deep fried. The potato skins are good too.

Food is always amazing. Service is very good as well. Be prepared to wait if you go on a weekend. Be sure to get a wharfburger and fried mushrooms! Also have a decent selection of draft beer

They have the best variety of food. I have never been disappointed with the Wharf. All time delicious food. Make a reservation if you are going Friday or Saturday night as they are booked solid. The prices are very very reasonable cant hardly eat at subway for these prices. Nice fireplace inside on cold winter nights and a patio outside... More

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
