We had been to Waterfrontoo a couple of times in the past and had enjoyed the experience. Our recent tip was very disappointing. The food was just o.k. at best. I suggest you avoid the ribs as the sauce is not very good. One member of our party thought their steak was overcooked. They ordered it medium and the meat... More

This was our first visit here! Our meal was amazing! I cut my steak with a fork and even though the mahi mahi was fried, there was no grease at all! The service and atmosphere was wonderful! A wonderful evening at a fair and reasonable price! You will not regret visiting here!

Mostly good food in our party of 7, however there is no vegetarian option. When I asked what the vegetarian options were, the waitress looked blankly and replied "errrr...vegetables?" Not a great reply in 2017! I ended up with a kid's cheese sandwich and some fries. The restaurant was quite dark and dated.

I ate here Easter weekend with 21 family members. They did seat us at 3 separate tables, but the tables were next to each other. Each table had a different server, which was great. When we ordered drinks, our server informed us that Happy Hour was still going on and would we like something from that menu?!! Awesome! They were... More

We visited Waterfrontoo for dinner and had a seat overlooking the water. It was nice watching the fish jump and the birds fly by while we waited for our food. Waterfrontoo has a nice mixture of fish and steak dishes, as well as other options. I went for the blackened salmon along with a nice salad and baked sweet potato.... More

We had my birthday dinner here. Everyone loved the $3 drinks and rib special on Tuesday. One friend had the chicken and pasta alfredo and loved it. I told several people about it and they loved it when they tried it too.
