“Great food, great service and you cannot beat the price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

Great food, atmosphere, great service and price. Our waitress was very accommodating, personable and inviting. It was my husband's birthday and beforehand, I had requested a table by the window and when we arrived, we were taken to the table by the window. Beautiful view.

“Surprised Disapointment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

We had gone there at the urging of friends, but found our experience less than wonderful. Perhaps we hit a poor night, being only a couple of days after Sandy, but the food was only ok, the service was only fair. We probably won't go back, just nothing worthy of a second visit, with so many other good places in the area. Overall, not bad, just not that good.

“Loved everything about this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

This past Saturday evening we had "dinner with friends" at this restaurant. One of the members of our group picked it out after reading reviews. We were a bit concerned it might not have been open because of "SandY" but when we called a couple of days ahead we were told they were "still standing and open for business". There were 3 couples in our party and all 6 of us loved this place. We had drinks in the very friendly bar area that had a huge local crowd handing out which is always a good sign. For appetizers we shared the seared tuna, a cucumber bruchsetta (special for the night) and the eggplant. Dinners were the baked stuffed shrimp, sesame crusted tuna, swordfish special, chicken marsala, Jack Daniels steak and the cod mediteranean, No complaints from any of us. All were just delicious! Serve was warm and friendly. It was our first visit to this restaurant but it won't be our last.

“Excellent venue for private parties”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

We are very lucky to have found 'On the Waterfront' as the location for our rehearsal dinner. The owner is incredibly nice and accommodating and he made us feel so welcome in his beautiful and cozy restaurant, that we knew we had found the perfect place. The restaurant overlooks the marina and has many large windows. The food is delicious from the garlic/shallot infused butter served with warm bread to the house special calamari (you gotta try it) to the seafood/protein entrees. We picked a couple appetizers (eggplant rollatini with some of the best ricotta I've ever tasted and the aforementioned calamari) and a selection of entrees for our guests to choose from. They printed up menus for everyone and the service was spot-on for the entire night. We had such a wonderful time!

“Good seafood and great view.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Had a very nice meal here. I ordered fish (Haddock I think) which was very tasty. The view was excellent. They seem to have a good selection of seafood.
