We stopped in there a few weeks ago for lunch. We both had the gourmet grilled cheese and soup combo...WOW... Staff were awesome and the food was fantastic. Cant wait to go back for dinner to experience more of their tasty menu.

We had lunch on the patio today in the middle of November. The canopy had walls on it blocking the wind & the server Caitlyn offered blankets to us as well. We had a delicious lunch of soup & a sandwich. The server was amazing...& even though she had a full restaurant inside she kept checking on us & ensuring we did not want for anything. Caitlyn recommended the cake for dessert & it was absolutely the perfect end to a lovely meal. We were told the patio will be open all winter with patio heaters available. We will be back!More

First time going to the Waterfront Pub, great atmosphere and live music as well. We were seated upstairs and our server (Joanna) was an absolute delight she was friendly, gave us menu recommendations and simply made our evening special, she recommended the maple salmon and...I’m glad she did it was fantastic! Next time I’m in the area we will definitely be back!More

sitting outside was lovely during Covid The server was very pleasant and efficient My mother and I decided on Nachos they were not anything like I would have expected the cheese was thick and tasteless! I guess I shouldn't make them at home but something...is not right and Jalapeno peppers for the regular customer I dont think soo! But the coffee was great, waitress was friendly so not the worst experience I suppose but I really think they need to rethink the Nacho recipe!More

Very slow service. A member of our group was advised by the Manager that you should expect to wait 50 min to an hour for entres. We waited well over an hour and some of the meals arrived luke warm to cold. The Manager also...told a member of our group that we should have advised the server and send the meals back, but no one wanted to wait longer than 90 min for their meals.More
