Came here for stepdaughters birthday. Had the shared seafood platter to share for entree. It was just amazing. Had the Surf and Turf for main. It was just yum yum yum. Again just beautiful. Done to perfection. Had Apple crumble for desert. Delicious. Beautiful setting on the Marina. Very nice staff. Just nothing to fault. Will be back.

Enjoyed a delightful lunch. Service was attentive but more importantly food was first class. Staff made sure food came out at good intervals. Seafood was super fresh and that was complimented by wonderful flavours. Thanks to Adrian for making our day awesome.

We stopped here for drinks and decided to have dinner that night. We reserved a table with a sunset view and it was perfect. It is a little expensive for the food quality but you are paying for the location and the view so it is worth a little more to get that. The service was a little random. Seemed... More

What a gorgeous restaurant. We literally googled 'restaurants in Glenelg' and The Wharf came up #2... Definitely deserves #1 rating. The seafood plate to share was delicious.. I'm not a big seafood fan but the flavours were great. We didn't leave anything to clean up. Patrick was great and assisted us with chosing a bottle of wine. Reasonably priced. Delicious... More

Was in Glenelg on business on a Sunday afternoon. Walked past The Wharf and checked the reviews....looked and sounded great. Quite disappointing. I had scallops to start, which were served on the shell in a really good dressing. However, the scallops were as small as a fingernail. Then had the chowder which was just like a bowl of creamy soup,... More

Dropped in on a beautiful sunny Sunday and was treated to the most amazing scallops and prawns all while watching the ocean and sipping white wine! Sensational 👌🏻

Everyone raved about their mains. Garlic prawns were awesome. Best chips in Adelaide. Prawn salad was nice but not enough prawn to lettuce ratio. Service very friendly and knowledgeable about the wine list. Profiteroles were disappointing, coffees cold and no fruit on pavlova. Canned cream used. Restaurant really needs to reconsider desserts.
