Waterfront Ale House Restaurant Review

: Locals keep coming back for happy hour, the friendly atmosphere, beers, and burgers at Waterfront Ale House. There’s a good appetizer selection including ale-battered shrimp; the super nacho platter with its warm tortilla chips piled with chili, onions, jalapeños, olives, tomatoes, cheese and sour cream; and Buffalo-style calamari with blue cheese dipping sauce. Heartier grub includes a catfish po’ boy; smothered grilled ahi with smashed red potatoes; and a 14-hour hickory smoked beef brisket with sweet potato fries and creamy mustard slaw.
