My boyfriend and I wanted to get seafood at a non-outrageous price and ended us at Tavern on the Waterfront. We got all apps which was very affordable and the food was absolutely delicious. We went during Happy Hour so we had ~plenty~ of drinks and they were all delicious. The best part about this place was the awesome people.... More

This is not up for debate. Morton's and Ruth Chris is not even close. Escargot prepared in the classic, simple French style was very super delicious. The filet was beautifully seasoned and tender. The chef very thoughtfully served the lobster tail with brown butter. Amaretto cheesecake is THE BEST on the island!! Slight ding on the creme brûlée as the... More

Our food was outstanding and the owner and staff were welcoming, personable and wonderful! We came in for the pierogis and stuffed cabbage and left with a great experience and new friends. I just wish we had known about Tavern on the Waterfront earlier during our trip. I definitely would have dined there more.

Great view, friendly service, and good food. Had a nice leisurely lunch, and the owner spent a good 15 minutes with us. Would go back in a heartbeat to catch their live music.

Venue - hot AF, waiter ignored request even tho they advertised AC. Drinks - over priced, glass of lemonade made out of lime juice and sugar. Waiter lied about tap water... More

We got a great table with a view of Charlotte Amalia Harbor. Live music, open mic and happy dancing crowd. Food was pleasing to the eye and the tummy. Our entrees were Snapper with almonds, Salmon with Asparagus and one of the most tasty desserts Coconut Creme Brulee. Must return to this place when I visit the island and it... More

This place was recommended by a shop keeper who raved about the perogies. Unfortunately, we didn't order those, so can't comment. The Thai peanut veggie wrap was our lunch choice. It was good Hearty enough portion served with some white rice. Service was slow. That actually is an understatement. The server came and took our order and then it was... More
