If I could give it 2 and 1/2 stars I would. The ferris wheel wasn't working when I went and any clothing boutique you go in, prepare to spend a lot of money (one store had a tank top for $325). I'm sure we just went on a "dead day" or something because there wasn't many people there. It's okay... More

The Wharf seems to be up and coming. Construction going on, but what is there was great fun. Between the laser tag, theater, shops, and great restaurants there is much to do. At night, it is beautifully lit up. We will definitely return with our next trip.

After leaving the Tanger Outlets we wanted to eat, relax and shop some more. The Wharf has a variety of boutique style shops as well as known brands. The restaurants throughout the property offer a wide variety to choose from. If you just want to play games or go to a movie you can do that too and there is... More

If shopping is your thing...this is your place. There are many "high-end" shops...mostly for the women. There are a few restaurants and even a cigar bar and daiquiri shop. They do allow patrons to purchase drinks and walk the entertainment district with them...where that was not possible a few years back. There is a movie theater and also a ferris... More

Pleasant relaxed atmosphere for young children. The gondola was being repaired. Quaint shops. Clean large movie theater. Great way to spend hot afternoons then head to the beach at sunset

If you are looking for shopping, it's ok. There are some shops, but nothing to write home about. You are better off going to the outlet mall about 15 minutes north. This is really built more for concerts and the restaurants.

We have stayed at The Wharf twice and both times we've really enjoyed our stay. The light show is great for the kids and the atmosphere was great. Wednesday night seems to be the BIG night for kids. While we were there, they had camels to ride and pet, hulla hoop activities, face painting and jugglers. At 8:30 the light... More

The Wharf is an obvious tourist trap even if a bit upscale. It was enjoyable though in spite of the high temp/humidity. Great music played throughout the property and kids and adults were dancing and singing. Great selection of shops, all which had AC so a steady line of traffic was in each. Plenty of parking was available. Many restaurants... More

We're only here for a short vacation and we already have visited the Wharf twice! For us after dinner it's a great place to walk off your meal. Have ice cream, coffee, and shop! Appreciate some of the unique stores and products sold. We also took in a movie here, nice theatre.
