This restaurant is located right off a small cove of water, not the main body of water, but it is still beautiful. This is the type of restaurant where you can wear shorts and a t-shirt or dress to the nines and still feel comfortable. The service was superb. I got the fried shrimp, which I highly recommend. My husband got the ribs and was a little disappointed, he is biased though since he is used to excellent barbecue here in KC. I still highly recommend this restaurant, price is right and so is the atmosphere.

Food and service were very good. A large restaurant with ample parking and early bird specials. The fish is fresh and delicious.

Me and 2 friends had wonderful food and service on new years eve so we all decided to come back on Friday night. We were seated right away but our waitress had zero personality this time unlike prior. We let that slide, but then realized we were the youngest in the place at 830pm? Everyone had gray hair. The food was good, but we all decided we won't be back again, which I really did try to like it again but it is dated and we felt out of place ( we are in our 40s)

We live in Sarasota, and enjoy the Waterfront - friendly, VERY efficient waitstaff, good food - not a chain restaurant at all. If you are looking for ambiance and a quiet dinner for two, this is not the place; nor is it a place for children. You will find mostly locals (from the nearby fancy subdivisions) eating here. It is fun sitting at the bar having dinner, watching the cooks, and interacting with other diners (you never know who you are sitting next to - could be a famous person, truly!).

Have eaten here a few times and find it to be a great value.The food is basic; but it's prepared properly,tastes great ,and is priced fairly. It was a pleasure to order a burger(nice size) or fish and have it cooked properly.This is an older restaurant so the atmosphere may be a bit dated; but it's clean and the service is great. The bar was crowded so you have to squeeze past the patrons to find plenty of tables in the back. If you see a crowded parking lot don't be deterred, as the restaurant is bigger than it looks from the road.I think we like the Waterfront because you get a good meal,at a good price and we always leave with a smile.I always say after dinner , "I like this place".
