We recently stopped in for lunch. We have good memories of the Waterfront Grille. We like to sit near the windows and look at the canal. We started with the squash soup. We asked to have it come before our sandwiches. The waitress brought it out with the sandwiches. The soup was too thick. It was the remnants on the... More

'The soup maker' added to the ambiance by giving perfect directions to the question I posed. By the way, she makes a splendid soup.

Stopped for dinner after traveling from Rochester. It was a beautiful evening, the sunset over the Mohawk River was spectacular! The food, on the other, needs improvement. Kitchen was out of the pork chop special. The veal order was dry and accompanied by a salad, when I already had a salad. The veal was served with pasta on the side.... More

I've dined here on several occasions and the food always exceeds expectations. The personal pan pizzas are hand tossed and outstanding. The veal parm dinner is about as good as it gets. The veal is so tender it can be cut with a fork. The house salad dressing is unique and very good over the fresh veggies. The perfect way... More

A lovely spot for refreshment with windows looking right out over the beautiful Mohawk River. Standard American fare, with salads and single-serving gourmet pizzas among the more reasonably priced menu items. Attached to the restaurant is an extensive retail space with locally-themed gift and souvenir items, including Herkimer diamonds and other geological curiosities. Easy access to interstate route 90 makes... More

After a long drive on the Thruway, we needed to stop and refuel. We happened upon the Waterfront Grille and are so lucky to have found it. The restaurant was quite busy and we were fortunate to be seated at a window with a beautiful view of the canal. We ordered the soup of the day (butternut squash) and the... More

We had a late lunch here after our Eric Canal Cruise. Our table faced the water which was a plus, but you are able to see the water from most of the tables. The food was good and our waitress was very friendly and polite.

Great food (lamb chops), excellent martini (vodka), friendly service. For a nice dinner out with a lovely view (right on the Eric Canal) this is the best place to go.
