We were so happy to find a local place with Easter Brunch. Menu sounded good and it's on the water. We were disappointed though. Very unprofessional, no one at the omelet station. The buffet set up was dirty, food all over and many food warmers were set up side ways so hard to reach the food in the back. Our... More

A little disappointed. The waffle and omelet stations had no one manning them, there was food spilled on the floor everywhere and the coffee mugs were too tall to fit beneath the coffee urns so they could not be completely filled. It's the details folks and there were alot of details overlooked. Food was basically decent but a not good... More

Visited over the holidays. The place was packed. Made reservations 6 weeks out to ensure a waterfront table and yet we were seating upstairs at temporary tables and chairs in the middle of the room. Service was slow, over an hour for rolls and we had to ask. Will not visit again.

Gave it three tries. Food quality was less than average, service poor and pricey. Not sure if the management knows what type of restaurant and/or clientele it wants to achieve. Bar area was noisy.

First night in town for a few days of business. Hotel recommended we walk across the street to the Waterfront Grille. Warm and cozy atmosphere. We were greeted and sat immediately next to the window overlooking the water. Everyone started with the clam chowder. Mixed reviews from the table. Those of us from the South thought it was very good.... More

Clear broth clam chowder tasted like warmed up ocean water on the "lobster roll" was a few pieces of lobster wrapped in lettuce and stick in a bun. Almost $30.00 for takeout (was in on business staying at hotel across the street) so maybe they figured they'd save a few dollars by screwing a take out customer? Oh well, live... More

We had our Thanksgiving Dinner at the Waterfront Grille this year. Kaleigh was our server. The food was excellent, well priced, served hot and fresh and reasonable prices. Kaleigh was attentive, professional, courteous, and friendly. Most of our party had the turkey dinner. I had the salmon. The portions were perfect and everything was very good. Appetizers ordered and thoroughly... More
