Waterfront Ale House

Waterfront Ale House

Dive-ish bar & grill in Cobble Hill. Known for good liquor & free popcorn.

What We Had

I had the Pulled Smoked Chicken in Mustard Sauce Sandwich with coleslaw – The chicken was nice and juicy, with a pleasant sweet and sour tang from the mustard sauce. It was also pulled well, with a good mix of large to small chunks and no fat or gristle. The coleslaw was also a nice surprise – mustardy, refreshing and crisp.

My DH had the French Dip Sandwich with fries – This was a great sandwich; good meat cooked well, with robust flavor and really good fries.

Much to my continued delight, this place specializes in condiments, with at least three special house brands lined up along the myriad bottles of mustards, BBQ sauces and hot sauces.

Minimal with an interesting lighted cityscape over the bar.


Not the worst ever – it’s a bar and grill; adjust your expectations accordingly.

Overall Impressions

This is a quaint little neighborhood watering hole – great for drinks, mingling, and a bite.


3.75 out of 5 for food that was better than expected.
