Great location. it's nice to sit out on the deck on a nice day, with a view of Mt Battie , Camden Harbor, and Curtis island and watch the boats go by. Food is pretty good. it's a regular place for us in the summer.

The perfect location for dinner as the sun went down, but it just didn't quite live up to it's potential. Firstly, no lobster! and this is the prime lobster season. Opted instead for scallops and the few I was served as a main course we're OK, but very small. The dessert menu was good and the staff were pleasant and... More

On the recommendation of my hosts at Maine Stay B+B I went for dinner "where the locals go" . the starter of Mussels was a very generous serve that could have been good for a main. Whole lobster was simply done but of high quality.

My sister and I visited here during our stay in Camden based on other reviews. We were seated quickly as it was late evening in the off season. As someone in the industry, I was very pleased to see the hostess took the initiative to set a window table for us, despite passing tables already re-set. This little act really... More

A group of 5 of us had an excellent dinner from ribeye steak, lobster, scallops and salmon. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Our server, Josh, came at all the right times. Since it was off season, we were not at all rushed! Worth the price...

If you've come to Maine for the lobster...go to Waterfront. The seafood is fresh, the burgers are LOCAL and the staff is friendly. A cool place where you don't need reservations weeks before hand and a beautiful view of the water! Go for the lobstah.

The Maine Blue Mussel is the BEST ! Fresh and tasty. Price is very reasonable. Lobster stew is delicious !! Good view of the water front. Very friendly staff. Interior decorations are welcoming and unique, very romantic and family friendly, too. Love it !

Best ever lobster stew and oysters. Also a wonderful view. The parking is a bit problematic, but doable. We would certainly come again if we are in the area.

A couple of recent reviews have been unenthusiastic, but we've had enjoyable dinners here on at least two visits to Camden. This is a classic, straight-down-the-middle coastal seafood place, the kind of restaurant that would please your not very adventuresome great aunt. I don't mean that comment to knock Waterfront at all -- in our experience they do the standard... More

Not good, but not bad. Okay at its best. Views are beautiful and wonderful, but the quality of the food is lacking. This place has the potential to be very good, but isn't at the moment from our current experience. We will give them another shot in a couple months. Hopefully we will see some improvements..
