We ate here twice during our vacation in Camden. One time we were joined by an old friend from college who lives in the area. Our meals were well presented and flavorful. We ate on the outside deck and really enjoyed the view of the boats and harbor. The wait staff did a great job taking care of us both... More

We ate here as part of a large group the night before a family wedding. We had a nice long table along the back of the property with a view across the harbour. Service was good especially given the size of the group and the various requirements. Not a massive choice for kids if they don't like seafood but enough... More

Lovely service, lovely staff, the menu is the same as in most other water front places and unimaginative. The food is pleasant, the portions are sufficient but it's all average, there is no wow factor. On the other hand it's just a high volume water front place and does not pretend to be a cozy upmarket Bistrot.

We were here several years ago and couldnt wait to stop in again. We were not disappointed! Promply seated since we didnt want to wait a half hour for an outside table - we started with cocktails, dark and stormy and a bloody mary. Both were nicely made and delicious. My lobster cobb salad was fresh with just the right... More

The best part about this place is the view of the harbor. I had the crab sandwich with fries. The food was nice, but I didn't get many fries. The service was good. Polite and attentive. Nice restaurant.

Aside from the usual parking dilemma in the downtown Camden and harbor areas, this really "on the waterfront" Waterfront Restaurant is excellent in every aspect. A short walk from the main harbor parking lot with its 2 hour limit up to 5 pm, the Waterfront is perfectly located to watch the harbor activity, especially if you can be seated "outside."... More

I have been going here for over 20 years and have never had a bad meal. Friendly staff and owners, pleasant open air eating right on the harbor. Great fresh seafood. You can't miss!

We were lucky enough to arrive at the right time to be seated outside right near the bay. It was so pretty watching the boats go by. Our waitress was very efficient and friendly. The food was good. We had steak, halibut, and lazy lobster. The halibut was the best. The lobster was a bit chewy. Prices were average for... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local and they were open in between lunch and dinner times. Many restaurants here have a down time in between. We sat on the patio and had a great early dinner. Delicious local cider. Service was friendly and efficient.

Three of us had dinner at the Waterfront on Tuesday, August 23rd, a beautiful, busy Camden harbor day. We were seated immediately at a perfect table with nice views (longer waits for deck seating). Our server, Sadi, was excellent - friendly, patient, and professional - and in spite of being very busy, offered me beer samples to help me make... More
