Look for Pork Specials on the Menu Board


We’ll be exploring some great new pork entreés this month.

From traditional dishes like pork chops and potatoes to stuffed pork tender loin we’re going to have some fun.

crab-halibutOur most popular dish and a Waterfront Depot Original. Fresh Halibut encrusted with crab topped with a splash of sweet chili sauce for a perfect balance. If you’ve not tried this one, put it on your must have list.

Chimichurri Beef and Sweet Potato Fries

When we debuted our Chimichurri Beef and Sweet Potato Fries this spring, we the thought it would be a short run. It turns out, we were wrong. People love it so much we just can’t take it off the menu. Through December, you can 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.

Five Spice Grilled Duck Breast

Maple Leaf Duck Breast grilled. Served with savory rice and garlic grilled asparagus. Need we say more?

Braised Lamb Shank

You’re in for a treat. The lamb is so tender you just need a fork. Prepared Osso Buco style in our slow cooker with mushrooms, vegetables, tomatoes and red wine, our lamb is served with Yukon mash potatoes and a side house salad. The Wine reduction sauce is intensely flavored and perfect for the potatoes.

Try Something Different: The Cajun Fish Burger

The Cajun Fish Burger is fresh cod seasoned with bold Cajun spices and fried to a perfect crispy shell leaving a tender flaky inside that melts in your mouth. Paired with our perfectly cooked fries, it’s an extraordinary treat. Enjoy this meal with an Amber Lager, and you have a most satisfying dinner after a long day.

Seafood at The Waterfront

Seafoof-PlatterThis classic platter is one of our favorites. Hand-dipped fish and chips, deep fried prawns, and a cup of our award winning clam chowder.

Seafood Pasta

Generous portions of halibut, salmon, shrimp, clams and mussels served in our white wine creamy Alfredo sauce tossed with pasta linguini.

Clam Chowder

With all modesty we believe our chowder is the best. It’s loaded with clams, potatoes and fresh parsley in an amazing creamy broth with hints of lobster. Served with bread for dipping. Totally satisfying.
