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.

Love the walleye--always fresh and delicious and cooked in a variety of ways. Wednesday nights they have specials, usually seasonal catches which allow you to try different things like shore lunch, gumbo, etc. Outdoor seating overlooking the lake with geese. Great for the kids to watch or for a romantic dinner.

We were with a large group. They served us all in a timely manner. The drinks were very good. My shrimp was wonderful. However some in our group ordered the tuna. They were told that the tuna was fresh. The two men that ordered tuna both said that it was not fresh. So, stay away from the Tuna.

I've tried both locations they have and have never been disappointed. They do a very good sushi bar and have a variety of seafood items that you normally don't find in IA. the staff is very friendly and accommodating. Prices seem to be average for the quality of seafood.

Fresh seafood abounds and it is delicious. The Salmon Beer Cheese soup was a nice treat to start the meal and then the three of us each had a different seafood plate and they were very good. Having said all of this, I think the ambiance of this place needs work. Perhaps they are going for a seaside/wharf atmosphere, but I think they missed the target. Seemed almost cafeteria like with bright lights and rows of tables. Food: Very Good. Atmosphere. . . needs work.
