Waterfront Ale House

Ralphus | Feb 11, 2008 10:17 AM

I had a very disappointing lunch yesterday and thought I'd share the experience. Wife and I arrived at roughly 3PM Sunday afternoon. Started off with a 5-10 min wait to be seated (with no one else waiting and empty tables). Finally, decided to grab two empty seats at the bar since wait service looked like it could be a real problem. Bartender was no better. Took another 10 minutes to even get our beers, let alone order. We both ordered the venison burger with caraway stout ketchup. Burger was bland and dry. Ketchup was good but scarce. Fries were excellent. After eating, had another 15 minute wait for our tab which came to $80 for three beers, an app and two burgers. They had the audacity to charge $15 for a sub-par burger. Service - awful. Food - average at best. Value - awful. I have been to the Waterfront several times with each experience getting progressively worse. I used to take all my visitors there for some solid pub food and tasty beer. Never again. I am officially done with this place.
