    One of my top picks. I have a fussy family (not the kids) and this place accommodates everyone. Have never had a bad experience or food ever. Remains one of my favourites.

    Great restaurant. The service was welcoming, helpful and attentive. A wide variety of delicious meals are available at a reasonable price also a good wine and drinks menu. Would be lovely for both a quiet dinner date or a family gathering. Would recommend.

    There are few places that keep Seafood Chowder on their menu, and fewer who make Chowder well. The Wharf's Chowder is superb. The same is true for the quality and freshness of all of their dishes, especially the seafood. On a freezing, foggy day, we ate outside in a wam, enclosed space overlooking the marina. Great food, good wine, excellent, friendly service, pleasant location.

    We love dining here. The decision of what to eat is always so difficult because everything is lovely. Seafood chowder was our choice today and it was amazing. We will be back very soon to enjoy another piece on the menu

    Lovely meal. We are locals and have often looked to eat but have gone elsewhere. We will now be back for sure often. Was a lovely meal and table we were allocated but I could see they were very short staffed. Well done to the lovely waitress Jess on remaining professional and friendly even tho she was very busy.

    Usually a favourite if ours, coronavirus seems to have hit staff numbers (not enough and training could be improved), quality of food (eg chips weren't cooked through) and prices ($45 for 2 pieces of Whiting, undercooked chips and salad). We hope its able to get back to where it was, but we wont be going back for a while.

    I loved the snickertini cocktail. It was Absolutely Devine And the black rib eye with potato salad and prosciutto was delicious. Every time we've been here, we've ordered the Kilpatrick oysters. They're our favourite

    Service was ok.. Atmosphere was ok... could've been because it was a Monday, but that's when my birthday was this year. Restaurant is also quite dark. The chicken skewers and oysters kilpatrick entrees were just delish. The salt and pepper prawns main... prawns were nice, but the rest looked and tasted very much like a pub meal - and the cost was much more than a pub meal, so could be improved. The rib eye and roast potatoes were good, but a little underwhelming for the price. Also... through the booking, they knew it was my birthday, yet no-one mentioned it... so in that case, service was not great.

    Booked 1 week in advance, yet our reservation was not on their list, placed us outside in the cold although tables inside were available. Asked to move inside, they accommodated but seemed like an inconvenience. Food was good, wait staff were great.

    Unfortunately the rib eye steak was too chargrilled... it took away the flavour of the meat

    Kitchen (including where dishes get scraped into the bin) is open and right next to table. No toilet paper in ladies toilets was a TERRIBLE start!!! Wine had bits of fluff floating all through the glass - I'm guessing from a teatowel? Didn't drink it. Paper napkins on table. Chips (super basic with no seasoning) were sitting under heat lamp in kitchen for so long that by the time they got delivered to the table they were barely warm. We didn't eat them. I've had hotter and tastier food from most pubs (for a lot less). Someone came to ask how everything was and understandably I didn't want to launch into how disappointed I was about all these little things while in the middle of eating, so I said "fine", then the person walked away without even filling our empty water glasses. None of us will bother coming back.

    The Warf offers a great variety of of dishes with daily specials like catch of the day. The menu has options for everyone. It’s simple yet very good, and fresh! Fish and chips, steaks, chicken schnitzel or chowder. We had coffin bay oysters to start and then grilled fish with chips and salad. Service was quick and professional, setting by the Marina is charming, and I find this is a great option if visiting Glenelg.

    Had lunch at this restaurant located on the Pier in Glenelg, Adelaide. A great spot in a clean modern restaurant. The service was excellent and the food superb. Would highly recommend this restaurant if your in Adelaide.

    We went to dinner for my partners birthday, and going to the Wharf made it super special. The atmosphere was romantic and we sat next to a window with a sunset. The food was amazing, I had something very simple (chicken breast with vegetables and potatoes) and it had so much flavour, we also have garlic bread and it was so tasty! We were blown away!
