“A delicious and relaxing lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2011

We have been to the Waterfront for dinner a have found it to be one of our favorites on the island. This weekend we tried it for lunch and it was excellent. We had Calamari for an appetizer. My wife had the fish tacos and I had the Crabcake sandwhich. All the seafood was fresh and very tasty. The tacos were filled with Grouper lightly seasoned and the crabcake was served with a side sauce that was terrific. The only problem was the girl who seated us: she looked annoyed with her job and had zero personality. Our waitress made up for it though.

“Nice atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2011

We tried the Waterfront because we had eaten and the Sand Bar and they are owned by the same people/company. Figured the food would be just as good there, but it wasn't. I actually had the same thing in both places to compare, but it was very salty at the Waterfront. Which is by the way, on the bay side of the island.

“A great place to dine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2011

This restaurant sits alone on the Waterfront opposite the City Pier. It has an outdoor dining area that overlooks the water and the Pier. We ate in this restaurant 5 times and on every occasion had excellent service and food. If you are a carnivore do not miss out on the steak which is a taste sensation but if you are looking for a gastronomic delight go for the chocolate brownie cheesecake...totally yummy!! Definitely worth a visit if you are on Anna Maria

“Nice option”

Very nice restaurant. Good location and service. We had fish tacos and carnitas tacos. Fish tacos were really good, but carnitas just ok. It could get crowded sometimes.
