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.

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

Great drinks and fantastic food. Everything on the menu is wonderful but I really enjoy the Caprese Salad. We sat at the bar and the service was perfect.

One of the better places to dine in AM. Well run with interesting menu. Great view of water in outdoor dining area. Offers American classics with innovative flair. My Mahi Mahi over grits with red sauce was spot on. The truffled mac and cheese side was so tasty and voluminous that we all shared. The tuna sashimi is some of... More

We read about this place in a FL book and were so glad we had lunch there! It was a brisk and windy day; we welcomed the radiant heat on the covered porch and still enjoyed the view of the bay. Nice menu; good wine list; good service.
