“Great Steak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

Booked here for dinner.. Great atmosphere and very busy but they had our table ready within 10 mins. Very good very friendly service from all staff. I can personally recommend the Steak Culloden. Cooked exactly as I asked. One of the tastiest steaks I have had in some time.

Definitely worth a visit

“The secrece, t side of Scotland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

Who would have thought that in Scotland you may find something different than fish&chips? Beautiful place, easy and kind waiters, nice location (despite the current works going on...) a definite must. Grilled fish at its best and down-to-earth prices. For everybody staying at Inverness, a place to visit and enjoy.

Have fun!

“Great pub restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

I go here with my very elderly father every time I am in Inverness and have never been disappointed. The food is lovely,piping hot and the staff very friendly and accommodating. It is very unfortunate that,due to the road works, more people have not found there way to this cosy pub offering very good value.

“Wonderful experience for food and music”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

We first tried the Waterfront in 2012 when we were in Inverness for a couple of days. It happened to be a Thursday, and that's the evening that there's live music by Kenny Jamieson, the lead singer of the group Schiehallion. We enjoyed the evening very much. This time, when we knew we would be in Inverness for a few days, we made a reservation for Thursday evening again. Again, we had a lovely evening.

The menu has many interesting choices, and this time we had the soup of the day (Cream of Broccoli and Stilton) for 3.50, Thai crab cakes (4.95), Chicken enchilada with rice (12.00) and the Mixed fish grill with seasoned chips (12.95). Every piece of fish on the mixed fish grill was excellent, and there was a good variety. The chicken was moist, and the cheesy covering not too overpowering. The only reason I'm not giving an "Excellent" rating is because the chips were too heavy as an accompaniment to the fish grill, and they were not in any way "seasoned." I wish I had asked for rice instead of the chips. Service that night was rather slow - we had 3 different servers tell us they would bring a menu, but still had to wait quite a while. However, the place was full and very busy, and all the personnel were very friendly (and apologized for the wait).

If you're able to go on a Thursday, I highly recommend Kenny Jamieson's music. He has a lovely voice, and sings a range of songs. We bought his CD (Calem's Dream) for 10 pounds, and have been listening to it over and over.

All in all, another lovely evening at The Waterfront. The next time we're in Inverness, we'll definitely go there again.
