Had a great meal for lunch--lightly blackened grouper sandwich--with a cold draft Dead Guy Ale. The staff and owners make ordering gluten-free easy and delicious with a gluten-free bun option on the sandwich or corn tortilla on the grouper tacos (which are also amazing). Great food with a great view and always a friendly staff!!

We live on the island and make this one of our regular places to eat out. It is always consistently good and the owners really care. We sit outside year around and enjoy the passers-bys and the view of the bay. My wife and I have tried most everything on the menu, from grouper to steak. Always excellent. We receive... More

I've been to the Waterfront several times over the past few years but this is the first time that I could have easily picked 4-5 lunch menu items. There was an enticing BLT on a croissant, a chicken and waffles dish whose description made my mouth water, and more. I chose the grouper tacos made with fresh grilled grouper. My... More

Friends brought their family dog, so we were seated on the back patio. Waitress was wonderful, helped us with deciding what to order. I had the Apricot Glazed Pork Tenderloin. OMG, so sweet and juicy! Husband had the Mahi Mahi special. Everything was delicious, mussels, mac & cheese, and Caesar Salad.

This is a great restaurant with truly wonderful staff. Came twice on our vacation - somewhat due to there being very few restaurants on this end of the island, but also because the food was very good. The only downside was sitting on the patio we could smell someone smoking on the other side of the fence at the back... More

They hardly miss a beat! Food, wine and service are always excellent. The ambiance is waterfront with a bit of romance. Come early, it gets crowded with a bit of a wait if one does not have reservations. Soups, salads and seafood dishes are all delicious, no question. Enjoy!

We often go to the Waterfront, primarily because you can book a table inside, although we prefer to eat outside at the front. The food is also a good reason to go as it is always delicious and the menu is varied. The service has on occasions been slow but it's definitely worth a visit. One of our favourite restaurants...

The staff is terrific and the restaurant offers variety in seating preferences. Outdoors with view, indoor with fireplace, or more private patio. The food was delicious!!!!

This place was the best we found! The food was imaginative, varied, and fresh. You'd better be hungry, as the size of the appetizers caused some of us to order the rest of the meal more modestly. In fact, after sharing calamari and mussels with my three companions, I opted for a cup of the lobster bisque rather than an... More
