Our server was very attentive and... More

We have been coming here since it opened. They just can't seem to get it together. They have changed managers over and over again. The chowder is still good but portions are small. The burgers are good but are quite charred. My husband had the meatballs and cappellini and it was tasteless. The meatballs had a lot of bread in... More

Took family to the Sunday Brunch at Water's Edge. The food was excellent. Prime Rib, Turkey, Coctail Shrimp, Eggs made to order, waffles, Bacon, Sausage, Toast, Salad, Desserts. $33 adults, $22. Very Good. The rest of Water's Edge hotel or restaurant I would not recommend.

I haven't bin so disappointed in a restaurant in years. It took over a hour for the waitress to bring out a ceasear salad and 2 soups. Then it took another hour to have our dinner severed. Only appetizers. Risotto lobsters balls .... Fair. Seafood salad .... Poor. Mussels. Ok

Service was ridiculously slow and the food only mediocre. It took over an hour just to get our simple apps.

The food was acceptable. The baked goods were superb. Staff reported that the baking is done on the premises. Kudos to their bakers!!!! The rest of the food was rather average.

I attended a wedding here in September of 2014. It was very beautiful. The being that it is right on the water, makes it a perfect venue for any special event. The restaurant dining area faces the water and looked very nice also. We were in a private room for the wedding, but the food and service was very good.
