For an area that is populated with so many restaurants, downtown Plymouth is limited when it comes to bar pizzas. I know-I know, there is Cabbyshack, the pizza there is great, no complaints. Although, the location is seasonal and it does take about 30 minutes to cook. This is perfectly fine, I believe in doing what it takes to get the best product possible but time is definitely a factor in making pizza order decisions. There is also MammaMias and Anna's, who's pizza is phenomenal, but MammaMias isn't that bar style pizza we are talking about here. Other than Cabby's & Anna's, the options are limited. Main Street Sports offers an excellent deal on bar pizza. If you order a pitcher of beer, you get a free pizza. Amazing deal, right? Yes, but the pizza is not very good. It kind of looks like the pizza on the Chef Boyardee pizza maker kit and tastes like microwaved left overs. I can't complain because the pizza is free so I enjoy it every time.
This leaves the Waterfront Bar and Grille, not too pricey, not too fancy. There is a large bar upstairs, outdoor bar downstairs. convenient parking, DJ SKIP, and outdoor patio seating. A pretty perfect place to grab a couple beers and some great tasting pizzas.
Towards the end of last summer, I sat down at the bar upstairs had a beer and wanted to order some pizzas to bring home to my lady. I was in complete disbelief when the bartender told me they were no longer doing pizzas. After I realized he wasn't messing with me, I quickly asked why...why was this lovely restaurant no longer serving what I considered a staple in their menu. The bartender gave me a confusing answer saying they took to long, caused order issues, etc. I couldn't believe it.
I still can't believe it, so I called waterfront and spoke to manager about why they did away with the pizzas.
"It was time for a new oven, and we decided that we could make the kitchen more effective. We replaced the oven with more burners and another convection oven, which proved to be effective over the course of the summer we were able to get out better quality food in much better timely manner. "
Do you think pizzas will be back on the menu any time soon?
"At this point it doesn't look like it, if they were to return, the earliest it would be is in the fall but that is complete speculation"
Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Waterfront will be pumping out pizzas again anytime soon. Thank you to their management team for speaking with me about it.
