5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

Great jazz, good food and nice service. Friday is open mike night of jazz. Food is classic polish dishes. Nice patio facing the harbor when the music is not playing.

“Jazzed up”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

My friend and I had lunch there a couple of months ago. We sat at a window table and watched some of the best sailors in the world competing in a match race. The mark pin was only twenty yards away from our table..We both had salads and perogies and they were great..Thier live jazz every friday is a must. The staff is very attentive and knowledgeable

“A gem in the generally awful Virgin Island dinning scene.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

Tavern on the Waterfront was a pleasure with great food, attentive service and a family atmosphere. Plus, a really well stocked bar.

The "Danish" ribs were succulent and was happy with the choice of European, American and Island classics.

Definitely worth stopping by.

“Great view”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

Great view. We went on Christmas Day. Had dinner at 6, expensive. The ham dinner was great. But I didn't like the pot pie. Attentive wait staff.

“Nice Lunchtime experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

My hubby and I stopped here for lunch last week while on a cruise. We like to visit local restaurants when in the islands and this one looked inviting with it's 2nd floor views of the water and ample menu choices. Our waiter Ken(I believe he manages this spot) was very friendly, helpful and quite entertaining. We enjoyed our meal; I had the fish sandwich and my husband had the hot ham and swiss. Both were very good. I would recommend this place!
