Excellent option.

Linda, my wife, says her omelette was the best she ever had. Fluffy, filled with local veggies. Made to her order (changed the goat cheese to cheddar). My burger was cooked perfectly. Very tasty, crisp fries. Bloody Mary's to start. Great service. Seed to table. Unique. Water view.

The Waterfront Kitchen has excellent food but they did not do their fixed price menu correctly this year. They offered no options on the menu other than choosing a complete vegetarian 5 course meal or a 5 course meal. I was the only one of our foursome to select the vegetarian meal. So when the first course was oysters we... More

We had a wonderful time here for New Year's Eve. We reserved in advance (by phone, since their website reservation system wasn't working), and ended up with the best and largest table, complete with cushioned bench seating. They had special prix fixe menus- vegetarian ($100) or meat ($140). They even allowed us to swap one meat course for a veggie... More

It was mid-day on a mild November Sunday of a getaway weekend and we were searching for a spot on the water where we could enjoy the view as well as the food. We had spotted the outdoor patio and umbrellas while on the water taxi earlier and were delighted to discover that they were a part of an all... More

My husband and I have been here numerous times - weekends and evenings. It has always been very good food - and you can't beat the seating right on the water. On nice days - sit outside at the tables right on the water. We very much enjoy this place. Therein one quirky waiter however - not sure if he... More

I tried this restaurant again after hearing that had a new executive chef. Not good. After being seated, I waited 1/2 hour for cocktails. The waitress was nice enough, but seemed very confused about the menu when asked questions. After waiting more than an hour for appetizers, they came out lukewarm and not very good. Four people were dining in... More

Visiting from out of town and looking for local seasonal meal. This fit bill. Nice building on water, service that paid attention without hovering. Amazing beet salad and oyster appetizer. But kitchen had slow service with on a quiet Sunday night. Would come back if we were in town again.

Went here as part of an office event (about 25 people). Got there ahead of the main group. Checked in with the host. I rattled off a couple of names the reservation might have been under. He seemed utterly perplexed. He calls over another host, who finds us under the first name I mentioned. The place isn't really that big,... More

We were visiting from out of town and were recommended this restaurant by our hotel concierge. The setting was beautiful, as was the physical atmosphere of the restaurant itself--well decorated and laid out. The menu choices were interesting and by and large the food was well prepared and delicious except for one meal. Unfortunately the wait service was really bad.... More

We have an emotional connection because my daughter was married on the adjacent pier, and the setting is fabulously beautiful. Returned recently as a goodby dinner for my daughter and her husband heading west to portland. Everything was fine, and I was all set to write that 5-star review, but then I got the bill. For that much $$ it... More
