Not to sound like a disappointed mom who just found out her teenager drinks a case of Natty Light every weekend instead of playing mini-golf, but we feel like the Georgetown waterfront hasn’t really reached its full potential. The view is great, but the restaurants are generally overpriced, too crowded, and not worth the hassle. Fiola Mare is an exception. It’s expensive, but actually worth the price for a special occasion. In addition to a great view of the water, it has excellent seafood and pasta dishes your mom will approve of.
