We had dinner at The Waterfront by happenstance- Valentino's was closed , as was the Hartstone and although we looked into Francine's the wait for a table was too long and other reviewers comments on the atmosphere appeared well justified. Just around the corner we found the Waterfront, the covered deck was fully occupied but it really did not matter... More

In one of those rare moments that I didn't use Trip Advisor, I relied on AAA to find a restaurant in this quaint ocean-side town. The Waterfront Restaurant is not easy to find; there is another building beside Bay View Street that looks like it should be the establishment, but there is a "For Sale" sign on it. Instead, look...

My in-laws live in Camden, so we have been to just about every restaurant there. This was my first time, along with my dad and son. We had a total of 6 in our party and went there about 6:30 on a Saturday night in July and we only had to wait about 15 minutes. Neither my son nor I... More

The food at this restaurant was fairly tasty.We sat outside in the sun on summer afternoon, which usually isn't that bad (It was the only available spot.), but they took an hour and forty minutes to get our food! I thought it would be kind to send them a private Facebook message letting them know how slow their service was.... More

This view was outstanding! If it wasn't for the view we may have left... It took over 10 minutes for anyone to come over to us and acknowledge us. Enjoying our scenery and conversation we overcame this service failure and enjoyed a great meal & drinks. Our server was friendly and apologetic. We watched many sailboats and local fisherman come...

My husband and I have been here many times. It's usually quite good but has gotten more expensive and the portions seem to have gotten smaller. I ordered seared scallops. There were, count them, five scallops on the plate -- that's it! Are you kidding? I make 4 times as much just for myself when I buy them at the... More

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.
