Service was decent, view was great, food was just OK. For a place on the waterfront, we'd expect crab cakes to be better. These were big, but had lots of filler and while they probably used local fresh crab, it may as well have been out of a can. Mussels were pretty good. Lobster stew was good, but seemed a... More

We had a large party. The waitress was very attentive and accommodating. The DuckTrap smoked sampler appetizer was very good. Delicious blueberry cobbler. Reasonable prices.

We enjoyed two dinners at the Waterfront recently. Special features were the delicious salads, including the lobster cobb salad and the roasted apple salad with appleton goat cheese. The goat cheese is delicious, only available at food markets locally. The deep fried oysters were well prepared, crunchy with great taste. The service we experienced here was outstanding...Susan Brown stands out... More

The crab dip was good but the service was ABYSMAL. I had to get up twice and walk to the kitchen door to ask for something. I have rarely been so frustrated. No food is worth that.

I ordered the scallops and my wife ordered the stuffed haddock special. When I received the scallops the centers were cold (not frozen cold) but luke warm. Not what you expect for a $24 meal. There were 7 - 8 scallops and 2 sides. When I asked to have them heated I got them back as over cooked hard scallops.... More

Had the lobster caesar salad twice, once for lunch and once for dinner. Both were very good and both were served with light dressing as requested. At dinner, we were disappointed as we arrived early but were told we could not sit outside even though there were open tables. The interior is nice, especially the main room, but it's disappointing... More

We live in Camden and visit the Waterfront frequently, both on our own and with out of town guests. The draw here is largely about the view and atmosphere; the quality of the food is often mediocre and occasionally disappoints. In the summer, the right half of the deck is for cocktails and a limited lighter menu, with a happy... More

Beautiful view, good food. Watch boats sail in and out of the harbor. Getting refills on drinks was a bit slow, but overall was nice.

This is our current favorite in Camden. It is right on the water at the harbor. We go for the light menu on the outside patio. The Waterfront is up-scale but casual with many interesting well prepared dishes (and a few deep fried favorites). I would recommended it to a couple celebrating something or a group of friends getting together.
