“A gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

First time we went to this restaurant with out of town guests and we had expected the typical restaurant food and service found at a tourist location like this. To our surprise (and pleasure) we enjoyed every aspect of the dinning experience. The atmosphere,location service and the food (both the specials and off the menu).
Highly recommend the Waterfront.

“Good food. Long wait”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

A good alternative to the venerable sandbar if it's raining or you don't need to watch the sunset. Long wait for a larger party. Call ahead if you can

“Fabulous Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

Four of us visited on a Wednesday night. Sat at the bar while waiting for a table. Friendly and attentive bartender. Bottle of wine appropriately priced (42$).
Ate on the patio. All of us enjoyed the baked Brie appetizer. All four meals were delicious; filet, shrimp and grits, scallop travolo and Frutti de Mare.
Highly recommend this restaurant for a nice night out as a couple or with friends.
Highly recommend this establishment over The Sandbar.

“Absolutely Delightful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014 via mobile

Incredible view, a friendly and attentive staff, and honest preparation of deviously fresh food.

It was our first visit, but definitely not our last.

Favorite items at our table were the Fried Green Tomatoes, the house-made Veggie Burger, and the Key Lime Pie. Incredibly delicious.
