Scum. Pure and simple. I noticed they charge for ice in my mix drinks. Staff seems nice except for the manager. I brought this to his attention and he litrrally said " well you dont have to drink here" you are right. I will not. Food is frozen and greasy and there are plenty of good places in the area.

We've been by this place many times on our way into town and decided to finally try it for dinner on a Friday evening. The place is very cute, with several flat-screen TV's, a full bar, what looked like a decent menu with a note on it that said "award-winning burgers".
We ordered cocktails; my cosmo was delicious; my husband just got a beer.
We ordered the fried calamari; which was comprised of just the "rings". It tasted okay, but it was definitely not homemade; probably frozen.
We decided to go with the "award-winning burgers". BIG mistake! They, too, were frozen, pre-formed patties about 1/2 inch thick and WAY over-cooked. They were like hockey pucks! We heard a woman next to us tell her companion that "the cheeseburgers here are really good". How anyone could think these are good is beyond us.
The onion rings were also frozen; not sure about the fries.
All in all, a VERY disappointing eating experience!! In restrospect, we remember it being even worse than we thought it was at the time.
We DO NOT recommend eating here; stopping in for a drink is probably okay.

They stopped accepting gift certificates, even though they are still valid. I was stuck with a useless gift certificate and a large bill following a mediocre dinner.

I would stay far away, I have nothing good to say about Waterfront cafe.

I went because I had a gift certificate, but at the end of the night they didn't accept it. The gift certificate was good for another 6 months, but they said they stopped accepting gift certificates 2 months ago! So I now am the proud owner of a receipt for far more than the food was worth and a gift certificate that is good for nowhere. Great way of doing business, bet they have a lot of happy customers returning for more burnt fish!

I advise you walk around the corner to one of the other 100 places in the north end!

Pros: location

Cons: bad business ethics, bad food

This place has become a mess. It was once the best option in the neighborhood, but it's become annoying just to enter the place. Where they once had Natalie (one of the best bartenders around) now they have a douchebag, semi-balding, hipster wannabe working there who's annoyed to have to serve you, and a waitresses who scream back in forth to each other, for hours, in their smoke-damaged voices about the mundane happenings in their life.

Were that only the problem, the fairly pleasing layout might be enough to compensate. However, their food so awful it is absurd. It'll run you nine bucks to get a semi-frozen spinach and artichoke dip with stale tortilla chips. At least they put a leaf of iceberg lettuce under the serving bowl, that totally makes up for the terrible food itself.

In the final insult, they play the worst music in the city. Now, I don't go to a pub looking for good background music. But the stuff they put on the radio is so ridiculous it can't be ignored. If you have more than one pint there, expect to here 'Barracuda' at least once.

In Short
Located in between the North End's touristy streets and the waterfront, this casual bar and grill is a favorite spot among locals in search of a filling, inexpensive meal. Freshly-made pizzas prove popular, and…
