Reviews of Cafe Waterfront

Historic Oyster Bar and Grill. A long time favorite of mine and my family. When decisions to meet for lunch with business contacts a high percentage say “lets meet at the Waterfront”. The local secret is to check the special board out first. The menu has great burgers, fish, steaks, salads and clam chowder.

Both seafood and steak cooked to perfection. This must be one of the best restaurants in Eureka. I haven’t been able to find one with better food. Bit on the expensive side, but it’s worth it. Friendly service, bit understaffed. Informal and warm atmosphere. A lot of locals frequent here.

Great menu and lots of seafood. My husband and I are spending a couple of months in Eureka this summer to escape the heat in Phoenix. We met friends at Cafe Waterfront last weekend for lunch. Everyone was very pleased with the food and service. I had a bowl of spicy shrimp bisque with a salad and bread which was excellent. My husband had the same thing with clam chowder. Our friends had grilled cod, and coconut shrimp and were both pleased. Over all, I would visit this cafe again and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone.
