We were so impressed with our meals at dinner that we went back the next morning for breakfast. Great staff and service. The folks around the bar were a bit noisy but that didn't interfere with our evening.

Had a wonderful meal at the Waterfront Cafe & Bar a couple of weeks ago. The fish of the day was perfect, ambiance relaxing and views across the bay stunning. Great place to go visit for a meal if you're in the area.
