The food was amazing and the price was just right for any seafood dinner. My girlfriend loved the food as well this place is nice and lovely quite place for dinner.
We were meeting our cousin from out of town for the Sunday brunch. The menu was great and reasonably priced. Our selection of the eggs Benedict was excellent. Nick our waiter was always attentive. Definitely want to go back!!
Love this spot for she crab soup. My rockfish was great and my friend loved her clam chowder (hearty!) fried shrimp and peppermint creme brûlée. I ordered the tiramisu it wasn’t as wonderful. The Service was top notch and ambiance was perfect for conversation and catching up. Will keep coming back.
The service was efficient, but TOO efficient since 6 people were served so quickly on a Friday night that we were done in less than an hour with appetizers and dessert. Need to have a more relaxed pace for a Friday night.
We have been to the Wharf for lunch several times and enjoyed each lunch. So, we thought why not go to the Wharf for New Year's Eve dinner. We got our table at our reservation time and ordered drinks. We then ordered one appetizer to share, but the appetizer came out within 5 minutes, which seemed really fast, especially since the restaurant was filled to capacity. The appetizer was just okay. Our entrees showed up 10 minutes later -- way too fast for us to enjoy our night out. Our entrees, lobster linguini, was just okay. This dish did not pop at all. The other entree, a lobster-crab dish, was also just okay, in fact a bit bland with cold veggies. We expected more based on our earlier luncheon experiences and the $30+ price for our entrees. Our reservation was at 9:00 and we were done eating by 9:40! Neither of us enjoyed our night out, what a disappointment. The service was fine, but I got the strong impression that they just wanted to turn the table as fast as possible. Our waiter brought our check and came back so soon that I had to tell him that I hadn't even looked at the bill yet!
As a non-seafood eating person, normally, I would not go to this type of restaurant, but my girlfriend likes seafood, and I wanted to take her to a nice restaurant, so off we went.
We had a great time. Since we were early for our reservation, we went to the bar, first. The bartender was very knowledgeable. My girlfriend asked for a Nuts and Berries (which I have never heard of before). The bartender had no problem making the drink.
When we got to our table, the staff was very attentive. The manager came over during and after our meal to make sure everything was okay. I like it when managers come over AFTER a meal because that's the time when they would be needed the most if there was a problem. As we were chatting, he told us about their Sunday brunch, which sounded yummy.
I ordered the Grilled Filet Mignon. It was pretty good. My girlfriend started with Southern-Fried Calamari. She said it was very good. For her main course, she ordered Linguini Portofino, which comes with shrimp, scallops, mussels, clams, calamari and crab meat sautéed in a garlic-herb white wine broth with fresh tomato. She said it was excellent; that she could tell the pasta was very fresh. She also pointed out the the scallops were real because they were all irregular in shape. Here is the primer on scallops that she gave me: Since scallops are an animal, each individual scallop is not shaped exactly the same—they are slightly different in size, and won't be perfect cylinders. Fake (or cheap) scallops, however, will look identical to each other as they were made using something like a round cookie cutter.
All in all, I would highly recommend The Wharf. We are looking forward to coming back for Sunday brunch.
Great food, love their Salmon Chesapeake! They did a great job accommodating our group of 15 for New Years Eve, everyone enjoyed their food and drinks...
Nice environment, good food. With reservation, was greeted immediately.
Outstanding seafood, high quality service, and cozy setting, especially on the 2nd floor. Lobster and linguine in cream sauce was superb. Salmon stuffed with crabmeat was scrumptious. Also, tasty salad with caramelized walnuts and gorgonzola cheese.
The Wharf is my go to restaurant when I'm in the area. I go at least once a month.
