Raw Bar worth the trip!

If you're looking for $1 oysters and good drinks go to the Waterford. We didn't eat a meal there but definitely enjoyed the raw bar and the drinks as well as the lovely little private garden patio. It's also fun to sit on the front patio and watch the world go by on Commercial Street. Service... read more

Not great food. But, very cheap. They have an early bird special with three courses for $14 if you order by 7pm. Service was friendly. The mussels were overcooked and bland. Dessert was just a scoop of ice cream. But, it's a cute venue and if you're looking for a cheap meal, here is where to find it.

We thought we would get Wellfleet oysters but the $1 were from somewhere else. We figured how could they be bad, well we were wrong. Then we ordered two sandwiches, which still hadn't come out 40 minutes later. At that point we just paid for the oysters and left. I would not return to this restaurant.

There were no redeeming qualities to this meal. The chowder was thicker than glue, and tasted bland with nary a clam. The lobster slides (ordered by 3 at our table) were varying sizes, there was no seasoning and the roll was a reheated dinner roll. The lobster pizza was all cheese and no flavor, and the mussels were overrun with... More

I did not have a good lunch at the Seafood Grille. My partner and I visited this restaurant on Saturday and the hostess was not welcoming and once we sat it took 45 minute for our food to arrive we only order fish and chips and a burger! will not be returning!

On a rainy Tuesday this place was packed for lunch and we had a 20 min wait. But obviously the crowded conditions had nothing to do with the food and everything to do with the weather....a port in a storm. The quality of the food can only be described as frozen processed items heated over. Fish and chips were sad... More

Went there on a quiet Tuesday. The place had a nice but not competent waitress and host. The table had only napkins and silverware. No water was offered, which was okay as there were no glasses. The ordered food came and was very good. However it was dropped off by other staff who then left before I could ask for... More
