Pork Fore Shank

Braised Pork Fore Shank

No growth enhancers, no steroids, or hormones. You do not want to miss this. You will be amazed by dry aged pork. It brings a new level of tenderness and robust flavor to this usually lighter meat. Unlike ordinary pork, the dry aged pork is more heavily marbled, creating a juicier dining experience, yet it’s still 96 percent lean. Look for amazing entrées this month and through the Fall.

chicken nespolina

A signature Waterfront Depot Entrée: Chicken breast sautéed with mushrooms, onions, fresh basil, and Italian Rosé wine. Served with Yukon mash and asparagus.

duck cassoulet

Classic Cassoulet

A traditional French entrée of savory white bean stew with sausage and veggies. Topped with braised duck leg and a side of grilled bread. You can add lamb riblets for a little more.

The Wine reduction sauce is intensely flavored and perfect for the potatoes.

Five Spice Grilled Duck Breast

Chimichurri Beef and Sweet Potato Fries

Stop in and enjoy our marinated flat-iron steak lightly grilled with corn and black beans. We top it with fresh, perfectly made Sweet Potato Fries and sauce it with Argentinian Chimichurri for a spicy finish. This dish has been a surprise hit for us, enjoying over a year of popularity. We're glad to keep it on the menu.
