I stopped by to have fried clams and beer for lunch. The clams were great on this visit. The kitchen prepared them with a very light batter coating. The batter had some internal air holes keeping it from becoming heavy and dense during frying. I quite enjoyed them. A couple of weeks later I again stopped by for clams and... More

Off-season in late November, the town is otherwise shut down, but Waterworks was open, and I was happy I found it! The fried clams were delicious, and the service was very friendly.

We visited this restaurant twice in October both times it was great. We were there with 7 people the first time and all seven of us enjoyed our meals. The next time my husband and I were alone, and the food was the same.

I ate here the other night. Was not as good as it used to be. I got the chicken dinner and it was cold & blah.

After visiting another local pub we found Waterworks. Food was definitely better here. Although it's nearly the end of the 'season' this place looks like a great place during warmer weather with the outdoor patio.

We were recommended to thus by our hotel front desk as a great place where locals go. We had a great server and a really nice meal. We also enjoyed the happy hour prices as we were there early for dinner.

We stopped for a quick dinner, the service was quick and friendly and the food was very good. By 5:30 it was starting to get busy.

I had an underdone burger, probably should have sent it back, it was pretty red inside (I ordered medium). Everyone else at the table said their food was good, so it was probably an anomaly. Convenient location, and it was crowded, which always makes me hopeful that others are eating there by choice, especially if they're locals.

Hit this place later at night but managed to get some great apps and a drink. The bartender was very friendly and the crowd was great.

The only reason this place got a one rating is because that is the lowest I could give. It started off by us waiting for 5 to 10 minutes before anyone even acknowledged us where we were told to go seat ourselves and for us to make sure someone knew we were there. Then the most unprofessional waitress I have... More
