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

After hiking in the state park and shopping assertions the town a few drinks and soups were needed for the chilly fall afternoon. This restaurant has nice indoor heated water side seating. We got a few drinks, clam chowder, mussels and oysters. Soup was a great and the oysters were exceptional. The only thing we didn't all love were the... More

We stopped for lunch on our way up the coast, and loved it. The view from the deck is amazing. The menu was creative and our food was absolutely delicious. Would highly recommend

We eat dinner every year when we go to Camden. I know we should try the other places which people recommend but when you like a place, go for it. We both had the lazy lobster (picked and sauted) with asparagus and it was excellent. Service was good and the atmosphere is lovely. It can be busy in prime season... More

The restaurant advertises itself as a lowkey experience with good local food. It definitely produces. Nothing fancy, but good food. There is a very nice view, but we ate dinner on a rainy night and still had a good experience. Servers were not particularly experienced, but very nice. The chowder was especially memorable, and I especially liked the scallops, but... More
