Mostly good food in our party of 7, however there is no vegetarian option. When I asked what the vegetarian options were, the waitress looked blankly and replied "errrr...vegetables?" Not a great reply in 2017! I ended up with a kid's cheese sandwich and some fries. The restaurant was quite dark and dated.

I ate here Easter weekend with 21 family members. They did seat us at 3 separate tables, but the tables were next to each other. Each table had a different server, which was great. When we ordered drinks, our server informed us that Happy Hour was still going on and would we like something from that menu?!! Awesome! They were... More

We visited Waterfrontoo for dinner and had a seat overlooking the water. It was nice watching the fish jump and the birds fly by while we waited for our food. Waterfrontoo has a nice mixture of fish and steak dishes, as well as other options. I went for the blackened salmon along with a nice salad and baked sweet potato.... More

We had my birthday dinner here. Everyone loved the $3 drinks and rib special on Tuesday. One friend had the chicken and pasta alfredo and loved it. I told several people about it and they loved it when they tried it too.

4:00-5:30 is their Sunset Special; among the offerings; $5 off their $20 Prime Rib, which I ordered. My Fiance ordered the $14 'sirloin steak'. When it came, the prime rib was just a little ordinary flat steak, kinda fatty, NOT a prime rib by any means. The sirloin steak was a fat/square little hunk of beef .. I never saw... More

Stopped one evening for after dinner drinks. We sat at the bar. I had a Martini; my wife ordered a glass of Pinot Noir. Very friendly crowd. The bartenders, Evena & Rachel made us feel so comfortable that we ordered a second drink and the Greek Plate: Olives; Feta cheese, peppers,& extra Garlic Bread. Definitely be back for dinner.

Excellent dinner - cooked to order Very busy, a wee bit of Await for Server To return but understand why. We are out on the deck - a little cove watched the fish and boat/ kayaks go by. Very peaceful outside Great price for amount and quality of food.

Ate dinner here last night... very happy with a place that we chose based on reviews here, and location from Waze. Split dinner with my sister, sharing the grilled grouper and a prime rib. Both were yummy. They were also accompanied by delicious baked potatoes! No skimping here. Salad and rolls before dinner were also yummy. We left the restaurant... More

There were only 2 of us but it would seem groups of people could easily get tables here too,it is a large place! We sat on the back deck for a beautiful outside dinner. Service was excellent even outside. I got the prime rib and my sister got the grouper and we shared both. Portions were good, very yummy baked... More
