I arrived in Camden late on a rainy night and picked Waterfront because it was one of sevral recommended to me, and it was easy to find. I wasn't disappointed. Started with good chowder--not the best I;ve had, but thick and tasty, and lobster with linguine. The sauce was rich but not too much so, the portion perhaps a bit to generous, and it was full of lobster, nice big chunks of meat--rare in my experience for a lobster pasta. Service was helpful, friendly, reasonably quick--o complaints at all. It's a classic New England waterfront fish spot, looks just like places I used to visit many years ago, with its wood panelling, and homey atmosphere, casual and friendly. If you love waterfront views, note that the Camden waterfront isn't lit after dark, but the view should be great in the day, and the dining room is arranged so that everyone gets a view. All in all, not the meal of a lifetime, but a very good meal and a welcoming atmosphere.

This is a nice restaurant any time of year. The view of the iconic harbor is terrific. The food and service are consistently good. It is especially appreciated by locals and off-season travelers because it is open for lunch and dinner while many other restaurants are closed or have reduced hours during the long winter months.

Have not visited Camden for several years, glad to find Waterfront to still be a place for enjoyable dinner. On a recent busy weekend evening, we had efficient service and delicious food and will keep it on our list of places we will look forward to returning to again.

We met this couple on Mount Battie who were married here 35 years ago and had come back every year. In our conversation we asked for a restaurant commendation and Waterforon was their first choice.

Waterfront was a short walk from our Inn and we were both happy for their advice. The food and the service were good and the view was great.

Camden is a very convenient place to meet; we come from 2 hours north and they from about the same from the south We have convened at the Waterfront each year, and although we have researched other restaurants, we have not found any that can beat the Waterfront. The location is superb, as the name implies. and the menu choices are extensive. We have somewhat different menu preferences, and the lunch choices are varied and very reasonable. The service was particularly good this year. We will return same time next year!
