“Great seafood at the end of the wharf”
Reviewed August 12, 2014

We wondered onto the wharf from downtown and didn't realize there was a restaurant at the end of the wharf. We thought we'd try it, but didn't expect the food to be so good. Granted most is fried, but there was a good selection of seafood. Service was great, and a great place to come for lunch. I'd make a point of coming back when I'm visiting town again. Forgot to mention the views!! The place is right at the end of the wharf, so the views are really nice.

“Where's they meat?”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

The Wharf House is a fun cool place for lunch....but we recently ordered the Turkey BLT. I think the menu said it was "heaped in turkey:....not. It was basically a bread sandwich with one slice of turkey and some bacon. Good thing the waitress never asked how we liked our meal! ....or isn't that also a not so good thing? My advice...try something else!

“Average restaurant - good ocean views”
Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

Walked around the wharf and had a late breakfast at the Wharf restaurant. The place is somewhat run down but does have a nautical atmosphere. Was not impressed with the food or the facility, but it is a nice place to get some ocean views and of the beach area. If you don't have high expectations, it will be ok. Staff was friendly when we were there.

“Not good for dinner”
Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

It was not very good for dinner. Our family of 4 all had terrible tasting meals. Service was also poor. Redeeming factor was that it was on the wharf.

Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

The clam chowder was the secent best clam chowder I have ever had. You can't park on the warf so you kind of have to walk far.
