My husband, brother and I had dinner at the Waterfront on January 24, 2015. All you could eat local shrimp, oysters. Delicious! Our server was delightful and right on top of everything. Young man playing the guitar at the bar was excellent. Spoke with the owner on the way out, very accommodating. Will be back in eight weeks! Can't wait.... More

My husband and I visited on all you can eat crab legs night. I had the crab and he had surf and turf. I was disappointed in the crab which was over cooked. For the price I expected better. The service was good but dinner could have been better.

A bit of an empty room that needs some new vinyl on the booth seats! Was told the oysters were good, but it was such a downer to go in the restaurant that we left!

Good seafood, good regional sides. The restaurant isn't actually on the waterfront, and the ambience is standard seafood restaurant. But we enjoyed our well-prepared fish and tasty regional sides of cheese grits and coleslaw, and would go again.

Love this place. Very laid back with a great beach bar ambiance (is that an oxymoron?) Waiter was a personable young man with the unlikely name of Taylor Swift. GREAT service even though they were very busy. The she crab soup was thick enough to be called dip but full of flavor and crab. Very good but not the best... More

This one of our favorite restaurants on the beach. They know us when we walk in. Service is absolutely superb! Seafood is always fresh any way you get it (fried,broiled or steamed) There are always specials. The night we were there it was ALCE steamed shrimp, and I'm not talking about small shrimp either. These were large or better. Drinks... More

Ate lunch with some friends and watched some football. The service was good tbe food good prices not outrageous. I had the fried flounder sandwich with fries. They served a huge piece of fish and plenty of fries. The bar is pretty small with limited seating so not a huge bar crowd.

We have eaten here several times now, and have had no disappointments. It also seems popular with the locals. I have no hesitations in recommending this place.
