“not a great restaurant”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

We tried the waterfront because its menu looked very good. it was a evening meal that we went for. We arrived and was shown to a table very quickly. The staff was friendly and gave us time to choose our meal. we ordered 2 courses. The first course came which was soup and that was lovely, Shortly after our main course arrived. my husband had chilli con carni which he enjoyed and i had rump steak. I asked for the steak to be well done and lets just say it was very very well done, it was burned and very tough. I managed to eat a little of it but it was so tough i gave up and just ate my vegetables. This is when the service went wrong, No one came and asked if the meal was ok and there was no one around to complain to, When a waitress came over to clear our plates I told her about the steak and she asked us if anyone had been over while we eating. The waitress said she would tell the chef but we never saw anybody again, i even had to go find someone for the bill. There was no apology and we still had to pay for the full price.

“Water a place!”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Stumbled across this place after playing a round of indoor crazy golf on the top floor of the 'Lucky Strike' amusements building. What a find - don't be put off by the madness of the setting - it's actually a nice restaurant and offers great views of the sea front. It was a lovely relaxed setting (we were able to play cards in a comfortable booth without feeling rushed), the staff were very friendly and the food really tasty.

The best place we ate at in Skeggy by far.

“A hidden gem!”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

An excellent meal enjoyed by my wife and I today, with a great view.

We were looking for somewhere to eat after visiting the Seal Nature land and after visiting the hell hole of Wolfie`s Wine Bar, we thought we would try the Waterfront.
The waterfront is situated on the top floor of the Lucky Strike and could easily be missed.
Luckily for us, a member of staff was handing out flyers in the street.

The service is excellent, quick and friendly professional staff and delicious food served, lovely.
The restaurant is modern and clean and the rest rooms also reflect this.

A great view can be seen from the restaurant, enhanced even more by the evening as all the attractions lights come on.

A hidden gem and highly recommended, excellent service and food at great prices, thankyou Waterfront!

“a great dining experience”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

my husband and i have just visited the waterfront restuarant on marine parade skegness , we had a fantastic 3 course meal , the starter was amazing and not to be served hot food for a change , the second course was a beef sunday dinner , which i must say was the best beef i have ever tasted, it melted in your mouth , and the apple pie was to die for . the staff was very friendly and made sure your every needs was catered for , i would recommend this restuarant to anyone vising the area . the three course meal was just £10.99 what more could you ask for , keep up the good work staff we will be visiting again .
