Great place to find open early in the morning. One of the few! Located on the Embarcadero, plenty of parking during the morning hours. Good selection of breakfast and lunch items. Hamburgers are really tasty and they can stack the patties if you are real hungry! Nice folks and a great view of the bay makes this winner. Recommend!

this place was very nice to just sit in. It was cozy and the view was so peaceful. We ordered an array of seafood including lobster and shrimp and it was a ll mouth watering good. Kind of a romantic place...

Service was not very friendly (they seemed to prefer serving older peoples than faillies although our kids were very quiet). The view is OK. The food was very greasy. This quality would have been acceptable from a shack but was not the level you expect from this range of price.

We usually look to try different places when we are in town visiting, we usually come to Morro Bay 5 to 6 times a year, mostly during the day to look around at the shops and have lunch before heading back home. This was the first time that we had tried the Waterfront Grill, was a nice experience, nothing exceptional... More

Great views of the marina and ocean wildlife. Tons of food on our plates. Quality and price are appropriate.

Stopped for an early dinner. They advertise the best clam chowder but it was blah and not served hot enough for soup. Had to send back grilled fish as it was so salty it could not be eaten. They brought another entree and it was okay. I would try another restaurant.
