Lovely Thanksgiving meal with my husband during COVID. Super quiet, great view, wonderful staff, great food and drinks. Service was a tad slow at the beginning, but otherwise we were very happy with all our courses and very impressed with the restaurant's adherence to CDC guidelines etc during a challenging pandemic. Great Thanksgiving all round!

We love doing their brunch on Sundays. The food is amazing and it's all very reasonably priced. We sat inside for the first time all year and felt very comfortable. They have large windows so you can still see the view while sitting inside.

We love the outside deck for brunch or dinner. The waterfront view is wonderful. They have heat lamps and expect to continue to offer outdoor dining through the end of the year. Dan our waiter was terrific and the brunch was perfect including the table mimosa flight (peach is the best). They were also very accommodating of our 1-year old grandson who loves their kid's burger.

Great location by the water. We sat outside on the porch. Even though there is a roof, the sun was really brutal during mid afternoon. They could really use an awning or some shades to block the sun.

This is the first time we dined inside. It was a great experience, Server, Staff and Food were all excellent. The water view made it peaceful.
The food was prepared very well and served hot.

Outdoor dinner on balcony with friends. Much improved service since we last ate there at the beginning of September. Service was good. Took blankets as sat at corner without heater. Food good. Enjoyable evening. Coffee hot!
Still hard to contact re booking outdoor seating.. Should have that option on their Open table app as other restaurants have.

I sat outside on the porch for lunch. Great view of the Thimble Islands and Long Island Sound. They have overhead heaters so I never felt cold. Service was great and the food was tremendous. I have never had a bad meal at the Wharf whether it was seafood risotto or a cheeseburger. Plus a great variety of beverages available. Was a leisurely meal but I never felt rushed by the staff. Looking forward to going back soon.

Cannot beat the setting out on the deck looking out at Long Island Sound. The service was great, Kevin was very helpful in recommending dishes and very efficient.
Food was very good and it was a nice warm autumn afternoon.

The Wharf Restaurant at the Madison Beach Hotel is always a pleasure to dine at.

The entrees were delicious (try the Lao Fried Rice), drinks tasty and our server Maggie was very professional and engaging.

In closing the view out onto the LI Sound, only compliments the overall experience.

Had a fantastic experience at The Wharf restaurant. Took my wife of 27 years for our anniversary and it was perfect. Kevin our waiter was accommodating, pleasant and attentive. The view from the deck, where we ate, was beautiful and the sunset made it even better.

Highly recommend The Wharf!!

We had the most spectacular sunset view over the water while we ate fresh seafood and enjoyed special cocktails. The service was outstanding and our waiter was professional, personable, and attentive. During COVID, it’s a blessing to have a safe, local, beautiful restaurant so close to home.
