The Waterfront Restaurant and Tavern is a seasonal American restaurant with a commitment to serve the best quality product offered at height of each season.

We know our fishermen by name. In fact, we count among our friends and partners the farmers, fishmongers, butchers, cheesemakers, winemakers, brewers and distillers whose products we meticulously source. With a focus on the freshest product of each season, our chefs allow the ingredients to speak for themselves.

Our seasonal seafood is noted as the market’s best – always fresh, line-caught and hand-selected. The Red King Crab is a prized menu item and guaranteed the best crab available on the market with each leg averaging one pound or more.

All our beef selections are USDA Prime – the highest level of grading based on the quality of marbling and aging, hand-selected and cut specifically for our guests, then broiled at over 1000° F, creating a caramelized crust that locks in the distinct flavor.

Local and organic foods are incorporated into all menus as best appropriate. Each menu is designed and created with our guests in mind. Enjoy the results of hard work and high standards.
