“Casual Place....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Good options for reasonably priced food.... and they have good barbeque. The service was pretty good... and we heard that they had live entertainment at night but didn't make it. Great view of the harbor!

“Average Resort Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Fairly high prices and an uninspired menu start the experience. Typical resort food with a little something for everyone: salads, burgers, wraps, and sandwiches. Very young servers make up for their average service with a great attitude and smile. I dine here 3-4 times per year for lunch with 4-8 people per visit. Something is always messed up with the order. They just don't seem to care which is sad considering the location in the resort and the fine views.

“BAR SCENE AT NIGHT WAS ENJOYABLE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

So, I need to start off saying that I rarely drink - ever. I had a conference at the Abbey and we stayed 3 nights. The food at the Waterfront restaurant wasn't great, I can't lie. My colleague had a BBQ chicken quesadilla at the Waterfront BAR and loved it. I had a few gin and tonics, he had whiskey. Jayne was our bartender and she was awesome. Nice, genuine, not pushy and not showing tons of cleavage to get a tip. Her personality was great. We listened to a live band that wasn't too loud and before I knew it, it was 2am.
