Some of the freshest seafood you'll find in the Des Moines area (flown in daily). Not cheap but affordable, with a relaxed casual atmosphere compared to some high-end seafood establishments around DSM. Besides fish and seafood main entrees, they have a large variety of seafood baskets. I like the fried rock lobster basket with cole slaw & sweet potato fries. Their salad ingredients are fresh and the sourdough bread (served warm) is tasty. Waterfront has a full bar with several beers on tap and an extensive wine list. Also in the bar area is a sushi counter you can sit at and watch the chefs prepare your selection. If you're not into raw sushi; try the Waterfront roll - tempura cooked shrimp, cucumber & avocado slices. They also have award winning soups; New England clam chower & seafood gumbo. If Sam Miller crab soup is the specialty soup of the day, give it a try. They sell fresh fish in lobby. There is a large outdoor dining patio along Waterfront's south side facing a small lake/pond. Note - we seem to have more Canada geese in Iowa now than Canada does, but a fence keeps them at bay, so they can be fun to watch.
