    Very food food - poor service

    The fish and chips I ate her are the best I have ever had in NYC. Delicious and bountiful. I have to say, whenever I go there, the staff is exceptionally distracted and stuck up, as if they would rather be any place than serving their customers. Fortunately the cook has a better work and service ethic. Just enjoy your food and be yourself or take it to go. The staff is astonishingly indifferent to creating a pleasant atmosphere.

    Great Pub

    Shame that some of you experienced poor service. I was visiting from Australia and used the pub twice enjoying very good food and a great selection of beers.

    Rude Service

    The concept of this bar/restaurant is great. Tons of different and unique beers and decent bar food, but the service is just plain nasty, and will keep me from returning. All the other posts on this board were right, the service is rude. With all the other options in the area, and certainly the city, it's surprising that the waitstaff treats customers they way that they do. It's clear that they think doing so is "cute." The bar food is decent, but not worth the hassle.

    The Best Bar Food!

    Can confidently state that Waterfront has the best bar food in the city! Incredible sandwiches and a good slate of entrees more than make up for the inflated prices. The great beer [select]ion complements the food nicely, and it will help with coping with the indifferent aloof service you'll receive. If you can, go in before 3 - their lunch special is hard to beat.

    great food horrible service

    the burgers are great the quesadillas are superior to any Mexican restaurant, but the service is abysmal,,,,maybe things will turn around...management if you're reading this, please deal with the flaky, uncaring waitstaff!

    great food, poor service

    the food is amazing, great bbq chicken and chili. only downfall is the soda they serve is a no-name brand, it's just cola. Not pepsi or coca-cola. So for all you soda drinkers out there, stay away from this place. But if you need a quick bite and a good beer this is the place for you. the service was not the best. Cranky waitress made the experience okay.

    Great lunch spot, especially for NYUMC

    I've passed Waterfront many times and thought it might be a bad pub food experience, but after lunch today my mind is changed! If you like pulled pork smothered in delicious BBQ sauce, they have a great sandwhich and for lunch you can get that sandwhich (or others) with soup and a drink for $10.95. Not too shabby. The soup was not amazing, but really I would go back for the pulled pork in a heartbeat. It would be great if they could include fries with their pulled sandwhiches, otherwise a side order can cost you four bucks or so. All in all a great Murray Hill/Kips Bay lunch spot.
