Although most seating at Waterfront seems to be outside, we were so happy to score one of the 6-8 indoor tables as it was hot and humid that day. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. You must have the kale and brussels sprouts salad...More

Best view on the beach. Excellent martinis and dinner. Our waiter was super nice. My family & I can't wait to go back.
