Bartenders are terrible inside the restaurant. Dirty shirts, bad attitudes, complaining about making drinks for customers. I left after waiting for 30 minutes to get something to eat. I had the menu and the female bartender took it away without asking me if I wanted anything, Was hear 10+ plus years ago and was excited to get some seafood. Went... More

A nice place to eat on the water but they don't take reservations. Can be very crowded. Said full party has to be there to be seated -even if they are just parking. Although we watched at least two groups come in who obviously were not there to be seated when original party was. Food was good and portions ample.

This restaurant is top notch and sits on top of the channel in Point Pleasant. Beautiful sunset views. The lobster bisque is the best I have ever had. Seafood is good and fresh although not in the cheap category. Ask to be seated in the outdoor area (covered) for the best experience.

Stop by for lunch today was not our first time but will be our last. The lunch menu is overpriced not to mention that the food we ordered was horrible. The tableside salad was old and wilty, bread shrimp was dry, rubbery and had absoutely NO TASTE. I believe they were frozen right out of the box to fryer. Probably... More

With so many intimate BYOs in the area, we hadn't been to the Wharfside in several years. Last week, we joined our daughter, granddaughter and friends for a 12th birthday celebration and had a thoroughly enjoyable meal. The early dining prix fixe three course dinner is a very good value, and I was pleasantly surprised to find Sonoma-Cutrer chardonnay at... More

We had a delicious dinner with a beautiful view of the water. Our waitress was very attentive. We got to relax, enjoy the view and have a wonderful meal. We will definitely go back again.

Sorry to say this but we feel the quality of good has gone down. We came here about 4 years ago and food was delicious and cost was reasonably priced. We were driving in the area and remembered our good experience. Tonight we got shrimp and scallops and the scallops were rubbery and shrimp was forgettable. Complementary cole slaw was... More

Have the apricot chicken. My favorite. Watch the boats, the seagulls, and relax. You can dine inside or outside, in a nice casual atmosphere. You won't be disappointed.

Probably the most horrifying disgusting dinner my family and I have ever had. The food was terrible and tasteless. The portions were small which actually was a good thing because it was awful. I have no idea why there were actually customers there, They must have been zombies or first time diners. I would never go back or recommend. Never... More

The food is not great and drinks are way overpriced (stick with beer) --it's basically your typical vacation-y type of place. But the view is good.
