“Cerntral Iowa's Best Seafood”
Reviewed July 3, 2014 via mobile

You won't find any seafood fresher in Iowa. I often come here just for the sushi & oysters on the half shell. This place is a must stop if you are hungry for seafood!!!

“Ok dinner”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

I was looking for a new place to try so I looked up places for seafood in Des Moines. The reviews didn't match up to my experience. The food was average and a little pricey. The service started out very slow, but once the waitress made contact she kept our drinks full. The ambiance didn't not match the prices on the menu. Not sure I will go back.

“Decent Food and Service”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

Food and service are good but nothing to shout about. Ahi tuna average or maybe below average, and overcooked. Others in our group generally pleased with food and beverage. This was our 3rd visit to the Waterfront during visits to Des Moines. I would return, but will not be in a rush.

“Fish first!”
Reviewed June 9, 2014 via mobile

Great fresh fish for all taste. From fried to sushi. Nice appetizer and excellent staff. Maybe the list of beer could be implemented.
