“Worth every penny”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2010

We went to the Waterfront for Mother's Day and had the best meal of our two week trip. Simply delicious, well prepared food and good service. The atmosphere was great and we left very satisfied. Highly recommended!

“Delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2010

Absolutely everything that we ordered was delicious! Reasonable prices, probably the BEST, Sweetest Maine Lobster we have ever had!

“Great food, great service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2010

I suppose that our experience could be unique, but we really like the Waterfront Restaurant in Camden. It was pretty crowded when we got there, so we were told we could get a table in the lounge (bar) right away or wait 20 min for a table in the dining room. We opted for the lounge where there were two tvs (no sound) and piped in music (not very good.) We don't usually do this, but since the menu was the same as the dining room, we gave it a try.

Our waitress could not have been nicer. She was handling all the tables in the lounge, probably ten or more. Our food was delicious. I had the steamed mussels which were huge and perfectly cooked. My husband had the fried oysters which were also huge, lightly breaded and dry, not oily. We both had salads which were lovely. The salads were so huge that I couldn't eat all mine after the 30 or so large mussels I had had.

We had a great time at the Waterfront and highly recommend it.

“The Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2009

I was very surprised to see some of the comments here. We've been coming to the Waterfront for 8 years, and eat both lunches and dinners. The view is outstanding. The food is excellent. Every once in awhile the service has been somewhat slow, but with the view, who cares? We adore the Waterfront and believe it is the best restaurant in Camden.
