Great views of the harbor. Windjammers in harbor during spring, summer and fall. Many restaurants and shops all in a short walking distance. I think one of the best views of the harbor is from the top floor of the Camden Public Library. Lots of activities over the summer and fall. A beautiful place to visit and even better to... More

We went to the Waterfront because a local resident told us that it was a good place to eat for dinner. Well he was mistaken, we got seated pretty quickly and I thought that was a good start, but it went down hill from there. I ordered a glass of wine for 8 bucks and the halibut and scallops for...

I eat at the Waterfront five to ten times a year. I have never been disappointed. In the summer eating on the deck, watching the harbor activity, is delightful. In the winter eating inside is cozy and comfortable. At the Waterfront a person can count on the food being excellent and wholesome. The service is also consistently excellent. The menu... More

We have dinner or lunch at the Waterfront just about weekly and have done so for 13 years as this is in walking distance from our home. When family and friends visit us, we take them to the Waterfront for lunch or dinner and everyone has always been very happy with the experience. Atmosphere: The view is beautiful of inner... More

The waterfront is a nice place to walk and enjoy the ships and views. Take time and enjoy after a day of shopping or after lunch or dinner.

This was a good time. We came close to closing; so we were a bit rushed, but the food was delicious and it did not feel like a touristy place. The clientele seemed like a good mix of locals and visitors. They had a couple of fires roaring as the snow fell outside on the water. Highly recommended.

This was our second time at this restaurant. OK but merely OK. The food is only decent in preparation and quality. The waitress was way overworked but did her absolute cheerful best. The 'harvest martini' did no favors to the Makers Mark or the cider-stay away. Gets the dinner job done but barely. Seems too bad is such a lovely... More

We had lunch at the Waterfront, and it was terrific. The selection was very good, as was the food. There was a Lobster Roll special that was enjoyed by a few, and the chowder was great. We tried a couple of the chicken sandwiches, and they were excellent, too.
