I love sitting in the bar area next to the fireplace the atmosphere is more to our style. Things we love rock shrimp, the specials (lunch especially quite a value), the sushi, grilled fish cajun please for me. Love the staff especially Rodney and sushi chef Adam. Lunch again is a great value, dinner prices are expected and portions are large. Also enjoy the patio when we can in the warmer months. The main restaurant lacks the ambiance that I look for when we dine out. Thank you Waterfront Ankeny keep up the great food and service. We eat hear at least 2x a month. Kids meals are an amazing deal and include a drink.
