“NEW YEARS EVE 2014”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

Had a great time in here dancing to the 80's music, loads of Fancy Dress and high spirits!
Plenty of staff so didn't have to wait ages to be served

“A random place for breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013 via mobile

My little family stayed in skegness over the October half term in a lovely hotel but it didn't serve breakfast. We were at lucky strike the day before and noticed that they had this restaurant on the top floor as well as coffee point on the 1st floor.it wasn't far from the hotel and did a full veggie breakfast so we decided to try it.
we had the waterfront special cooked veggie breakfast with 2 fried eggs, 2 hash browns, 2 veggie sausages, beans,, tomatoes, mushrooms and toast and it was lovely. I didn't need to eat a thing until tea time :-) maybe next time I will choose the smaller one lol.
It was maybe slightly over priced at over £7, including a pot of tea would have made it good value ( we are used to cheap old Morrisons cafe) but it was nice and we would go again.

“Expected better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013 via mobile

Thought this was going to be a good restaurant from the reviews i read. Looked really nice and clean. Kids had pizzas which looked nice and a chicken tower burger which looked ok. My youngest had chicken nuggets and chips, the nuggets over cooked by a mile!! We had fish and chips, how could you go wrong!! Fish batter solid and fish very dry, cooked way too long....always seem to pick the worse places. Seriously how can you cook fish in batter wrong and not know it. The only mistake i made was not complaining, more fool me I usually do..then again we were never asked at any point if our meals were ok.. wont be going back in a hurry..

“Great place to eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013 via mobile

Despite its location(above lucky strike) this is a restaurant rather than a cafe
Excellent food good service reasonable price
Just one slight thing don't sell draught beer not much of a problem had to drink corona (not too hard to do )

“not a great restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles 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.
