The Waterfront has a lot going for it. If location is everything then they got it. Perched over looking the Juniata River makes the outdoor seating fantastic. We like it because it is a short drive from State College. Sometimes during peak summer, State College restaurants are too crowded. It is also a nice stop over between Harrisburg and State College airports. We only go during nice weather to enjoy the out door seating. With a large gazebo type roofing and umbrellas you are never exposed to inclimate weather in summer. There is an outdoor bar but depending on when you go, the bar tender may be inside. We had good wait staff. The food came out in a timly manner. The menu gives you the sense of a high end restaurant rather than bar food that many places put out. The had a good selection of seafood, steaks and salad choices as well as burgers. They have plenty of off street parking. In early evening we certainly felt safe.
