The food was terrific. Great starter (French fried carrots & beets), and the mains were amazing. Grouper Oscar and shrimp & grits were so flavorful and cooked perfectly. Great service, even with a plate delivery error. The beer/wine selection is very good.
Said our reservation was for a relatively dark interior room--news to us. We would not have stayed. After protest seated us in an outside spot on the side street. Couldn't get preferred front street spot since there were only two of us. Upon leaving noticed some tab;es in our preferred spot with just two people. Food absolutely excellent. Service very good.
The brussel sprouts were soaked in grease. Could not eat them. Salad dressing and bread oil had too much vinegar and lacked district taste. Server Matt was very friendly and professional.
The Waterfront was everything we had heard and more! We dined inside and the ambiance was better than I had hoped. It was cozy without being crowded and most comfortable. I loved seeing so many of the original architectural details. The food was fresh, delicious, and beautifully presented. I will definitely return.
Hint: Reservations are for indoor dining. Outdoor dining is on a first-come-first-served basis through the hostess stand.
We are never disappointed here. I love the lobster bisque. The very friendly staff and the presentation of the food.
Waitresses always friendly, waitstaff terrific, and food consistent - what more can you ask?
Absolutely delicious! We are only able to visit the island every couple of years or so and The Waterfront Cafe is always top of our list of places we MUST eat. They consistently give us the best meal during our visits. This time we had shrimp and grits and the risotto Julianne - both had fantastic flavor.
My only complaint is that this restaurant advertises that it does no take reservations for outside seating. This is fine for me because I do not want to dine outside. However, every time they try to seat me outside. I do not know who control this, but I am just about ready to stop dining there.
One of our party had a steak that was full of gristle and hardly able to cut or eat. Where we were sitting started out being very chilly but our server turned up the heater; until the people next to us said they had been out in the sun and were hot so the heater was turned down. There was no offer to put down the vinyl curtain. We have been to Waterfront a number of times and must say this was disappointing.
We have been to the Waterfront many times, but on Valentine's Day it was even better than usual. My wife's filet was tender and cooked perfectly, and the special I had "Shrimp Over Hanger" was the best meal I have ever had at Waterfront. Perfectly prepared, and paired well with the Pinot Noir special wine of the day. Amazing!
