While visiting from Interstate we caught the tram on a referral to visit The Wharf from some locals. In particular they recommended the mushrooms on the healthy choice list. Initially, they were out of mushrooms but when I explained how I had come all the way from Perth on a referral, the chef said he would get some together which... More

We met a friend for lunch and chose the wharf for lunch. The team are friendly and very accomodating. My friend and I shared a dish which was not a problem as the kitchen simply shared the dish between two plates. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves here food and service.

This place has one good thing - a view. Food and service is forgettable. As a matter of fact, I get better food and service at my local pub at half the price. Give this place a miss!

We decided to visit Glenelg to see the beach and enjoy some seafood. Unfortunately the weather was awful and the tram ride very wet. However the Wharf restaurant did not disappoint. The service was wonderful, the seafood fresh and beautifully presented and the wine list compliments the menu perfectly. Definitely on our list of places to return. Hopefully next time... More

Called in here for lunch. Took up the lunch special - crumbed barra - it was nice. This place is in a good position, has a nice outlook, comfy furniture and well organised crew. It was priced about right for the area. I would happily go back.

I had a fantastic time eating dinner here last weekend with my friend. Wonderful service staff - very friendly; tasty, well presented food within a great atmosphere. The location is perfect with beach view and central. I can highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely come back when I visit Adelaide next time.
