about

The Waterfront Ale House has been serving great food and drink in a relaxed neighborhood pub atmosphere for over 25 years.

We were pioneers in craft beer movement, seeking out small independent brewers since we opened. On any given day, you can find a rotating selection of 20 beers on tap as well as over 30 specialty bottled beers. We put the same efforts into our food menu, sourcing from local and family-run producers as often as possible. Considered to be among one of the first gastropubs in NYC, the Waterfront offers an ever-changing seasonal menu alongside traditional pub favorites, including our famous spicy chicken wings featuring  Sam’s Serious Hot Sauce™.

Owner Sam Barbieri, a graduate of the renowned Culinary Institute of America, has been working in the hospitality industry for 40 years and is the pit master of the competitive barbecue team Fughedaboudit. His award-winning recipes can be enjoyed anytime at the Waterfront.
