Everything about the Waterfront was very good except the Lobster. The staff, including the Hostess, Bartender, and Waitstaff were all very nice and welcoming. The atmosphere was terrific as well. Although our visit was in the winter and the sun was setting our waterfront table had a spectacular view. I am not a seafood aficionado so I had the Chicken... More

We always enjoy eating at the Waterfront in Camden and recently enjoyed the most incredible perfectly cooked scallops that were beautifully presented to our table. Maine seafood requires delicate cooking and we were most impressed with our meal. The service also did not disappoint as we were very well taken care of by one of our favorite servers. The atmosphere... More

Dined twice at Waterfront during a recent visit to Camden, ME. Food was excellent. We had lobster, clams, shrimp. I also had chicken & dressing during one visit. Friendly staff. Open year round is a plus. Many places are closed for the season.

We were in Rockport for two weeks. I toured extensively while my husband was in a class. I spent parts of several days in Camden taking pictures of the waterfront, checking out the stores. We ate at several good places. One very nice place for a formal dinner or wine tasting and one pub. Both had excellent food and were... More

We were looking for a nice restaurant for our New Year's Eve stay in Camden and found the Waterfront online. It turned out to be the perfect choice. The food was great and the view out over the water was spectacular.
