Recommended by staff at the hotel. Charming with great food and service. We loved the sea scallops and pasta dishes we ordered. One of the best meals we had on our trip.

We ate out at least 21 times on our tour of New England and Waterfront would be in the top 3. We had a superb crab fondue to share as an appetizer. Highly recommended

My wife and I stopped here for a late lunch, and we were not disappointed. Fantastic Lobster Rolls and friendly service.

Last time we visited Camden was 18 years ago. We Stopped for lunch and longing for a steamed lobster. We do not eat lobster often, so we ask if the cook could cut it up for us. The waitress said no. There happened to be a fellow guest, and she helped us out. I would certainly think that a restaurant... More

Ate solo at the bar. Good conversations with fellow patrons. John the bartender fixed me up quickly with wine and food. My glass of Liberty Shoal Cabernet was poured full and a good value at $9. The beet and roasted garlic soup was more bland than expected with the garlic apparently MIA. My seared scallops in lemon garlic sauce was... More

Dropped in for lunch on a nice October weekday and found the wait to be 20 minutes. Had lunch at the bar instead, which has a nice selection of local beers. Quick friendly service there. The terrace with water view was packed with tourists.

This was our first trip ever to Maine, All I have heard is how good the sea food is there. First night here we went to The Waterfront. We loved the atmosphere, the harbor view and all this place offered. The food was really great. Our party of 4, everyone ordered something different and we were all thrilled with dinner... More

Dinner was excellent and so was the service. Special of the evening was halibut with awesome vegetables. Romantic salad was great. Wine selections were great, as well. View of harbor was a plus and fireplaces inside added to ambience. Highly recommend.

We visited on a cool September evening and ate inside. The ambiance still gave us the sense that we were on the waterfront. My husband and I split two scrumptious entrees, for which the server happily gave us an extra plate. Plenty of options on the menu, for seafood lovers and non-seafood lovers.

Beautiful space - large, but cozy - good lighting & nice artwork. On the water, not too noisy. Expected a good dining experience, however, it never lived up to the expectation. Service was lackluster, slow & inattentive. My salmon (local, fresh) had a lovely glaze, but was horridly overdone & dry. Companion"s shrimp came with a cocktail sauce that was... More
