We ate there twice and enjoyed both times. Service was great but it is very busy because the seating outside is fantastic. This is Maine. I remembered this restaurant from 13 years ago and made sure we went to eat there. Quality and Quantitiy of food very good.

We had dinner here and appetizers on the right hand side of the deck. The food was good, waitstaff friendly and the deck has heaters on during the chilly night. We were invited to sit out on the deck while we waited for our table and it was a bit confusing about where they really wanted us to go. Otherwise... More

I have been eating at the Waterfront for years. I moved to Camden eight years ago, had my first date with my now husband there and have always enjoyed the meals, whether a quick lunch with friends or dinner with drinks and much laughter. The food is excellent and they do cater to locals by serving different fare in the... More

Walked in without a reservation on a cloudy day and were seated on the deck overlooking the harbor. Ordered the special lamb chops and my wife the lobster Cobb Salad. The wine was very good and the wait staff attentive without being intrusive. The deck slowly filled as we completed our dinner and we walked it off around the shops.... More

We had a nice meal out on the deck on the "bar" side and not the restaurant side. The food was good and sitting by the water was enjoyable.

Although this restaurant didn't take reservations, we got there early to eliminate our wait. At 5 pm, we got seated right away and a delightful evening. The service was accommodating, quick and friendly. We managed to get in one happy hour margarita, which to our surprise was delicious and strong! I ordered the halibut with the blueberry coulis, which was... More

Nothing like enjoying lobster salad on the deck as the boats sail in and out of the harbor! Location!

We have eaten here many, many times. Usually in the winter.Our mistake was to treat ourselves to lunch ,on the deck, in August. Our impression: the chef is in AUGUST mode - in other words, throw anything on the plate , they are "tourists" and won't be back. I ordered a dish I have ordered many times, the Chicken Dijon...
