When you walk into this restaurant you are immersed in a warm and comfortable atmosphere. The bar is the kind of place that invites you to sit down for a tall one or for a tasty glass of wine. The wood walls give you a sense of home. The menu is also familiar like home including fish, chicken and beef... More

This is a typical Maine waterfront joint specializing in the usual Maine waterfront stuff. Lobster rolls, Haddock, Mussels, Cod & chips, etc. The view is terrific and the food...? Well, nothing special, but certainly at least, average. We went for lunch on a chilly November day and the place was busy with locals, which is certainly a positive sign. My... More

I really enjoyed my lunch here. Besides the lovely view of the harbour on the terrace, the staff was super friendly and fast. The mussels were very good in a tasty wine sauce served with crisp garlic bread. A real winner for me. Another day I had lobster, also very good. My husband and I also enjoyed the apple creme...

I'm a little confused as to why this isn't rater higher. I found this on tripadvisor while driving to Camden. It's tucked down out of the main street that goes through Camden. We walked about 15 minutes from our parking spot through town and down to the water. The restaurant is casual upscale. The wait staff was interesting. We were... More

As the guest artist for the Classic Car Club of America's annual CARavan event, hosted by the New England region, I was wrapping up a long day with many miles and it was time to stop and eat. I happening to be in the pretty town of Camden, so I stopped in a local shop and asked where the best... More

In Camden for a weekend wedding, we ate here our first night in town. And when the bride and groom were notified by the restaurant booked for the rehearsal dinner that they had no heat, they arranged to move the rehearsal dinner to the Waterfront. The restaurant takes classics and gives them a unique twist, such as a fondue with... More

Perfect bar stools for two in the back, right on the water. Bartender rocked. Long Island iced teas were excellent. Fried calamari and shrimp were tender and not greasy. Bacon cheddar cheeseburger was fantastic. And no one understands how hard it is for me to ever say that.. . Good times. Well done.

This is my second time here this year. You cannot ask for a more scenic setting. I enjoy the seafood selections and a nice variety of wines and spirits. Loved the lobster BLT!

We stopped in for dinner without a reservation on a Friday evening. We had a short wait for a table, but that was expected. We both ordered the Gulf of Maine fried shrimp, and we were both very pleased. Our main concern with the place was the noise. The volume of talk was loud enough that it made it difficult... More
