Amazing food and customer service. Great views and ambience would 100% recommend adding this as a place to eat if you are in PR.

Strong recommend on this restaurant attached to the Crest Hotel. I ate two dinners and a breakfast here and everything was delicious, hot, tasty. But be warned that the servings are HUGE. Also, on a hot day (these are rare in Rupert, so I'm told)...it can be a bit of a greenhouse in the window seats. Still, I thought good value for money, very good service and all around would happily eat here again,More

Stayed for a week. Every meal was amazing - breakfast and dinners. The last night ten of us sat together overlooking the water. Steaks, gnocchi, lobster spaghetti etc. Amazing

A perfect evening: delicious food with a beautiful view across the harbour at Prince Rupert. Whether you are staying at the Crest Hotel or simply visiting Prince Rupert, the Waterfront is a must. We enjoyed a delightful “coastal charcuterie” and a superb Thai Red Curry...with a wonderful harbour view. It’s a popular location, so expect only a 1.5 slot, versus the usual full 2 hours. Highly recommended.More

We dined here both nights of our stay at the Crest Hotel, enjoying an outstanding locally caught salmon with a mango pineapple salsa over rice, a tasty clam chowder, a red curry seafood stew with cod, halibut, shrimp, scallops, jasmine rice, crispy sautéed onions, and...a mild spicy sauce, and a cowgirl salad with spicy blackened chicken. For dessert, we enjoyed the mini maple crème brulèe. Everything we had was awesome, and every dish that came out of that kitchen was a work of art. The layout of the restaurant is tiered so that everyone has a view of the water and the islands off the coast. Seating is spacious and the tables are comfortable. On the Friday and Saturday nights of our stay, locals appeared to outnumber the tourists. Local family groups, cute dates, and groups of young adults were everywhere. The place was packed, and it was hard to get a table. This clearly is the most popular, most happening place in town, and well worth a visit if you can get in.More

Ordered the Yardbird Burger which was basically a SLIVER of chicken breast, not even a full sized breast for $20. This restaurant is definitely showing its age and the prices on the menu do not reflect the quality of the food. I was disappointed in...my meal because it wasn't even good for the price.More
