“Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

The food, view, atmosphere, and service were all great at this restaurant. We chose to eat our last dinner here in Maine at this location and were not disappointed.

“The. Best. Fried. Clams.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

We were in Rockland/Camden for over a week, and went on a fried clam quest. We BY FAR liked the clams at Waterfront the absolute best. Over the course of several visits, we tried their crab cakes (delicious), open-faced lobster sandwich with lemon (soggy but tasty), and definitely worth mentioning is the home made cole slaw. The fried clams were the best of the lot -- they were crunchy and tasty and plentiful. Were we to be back in the area, we'd definitely visit this restaurant again.

“Good location, Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Excellent service. I have to say we did not have bad experience in the Camden area. People are so nice and welcoming we will return. As for the Waterfront, this was our last dinner before going back to Montreal. Tasty seafood reasonable prices and warm ambience.

“Satisfied+ Be sure to make a reservation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Went there for dinner on a rainy night and wondered why the place was so crowded.We were greeted most pleasantly, and the hostess seated us right away with our waiting party. The meals were so delicious, being of generous portion and nicely presented by an attentive waitstaff. We selected fish and chips, lobster in herb sauce, steak, and buttersquash ravioli. The tomato basil soup was thick and superb. The key lime pie served was a huge piece and excellent also, being richly covered with whipped creme.
We hadn't been to the restaurant in over a year, and remembered our past visits as enjoyable, and this latest visit has reinforced a top notch rating for the Waterfront.
