Come here for the food
The oustanding part at this restaurant was the well prepared food. Very creative with a lot of well balanced spices. The service, on the other hand, was insecure and slow. A bit short and snippy at times.

Nice evening out
We had not been to the Waterside in years because we no longer lived close by. Because we were attending a special event in the hotel, we decided to get reacquainted with the restaurant. We had a cheese platter appetizer that was outstanding. The bourbon salmon was perfectly cooked; be aware that the sauce is very sweet. The mustard sauce overpowered the other fish dinner that our friend ordered. Service was a tad too leisurely; after getting us appetizers and drinks promptly, we had to chase down our waiter to order dinner and then to receive our bill; they seemed a bit understaffed. Had we not had a deadline, however, the fact that we were not rushed would have been a bonus. If the opportunity presents itself, we would come back.

Hidden Location with Great Food
We didn't know this location existed until we saw it on Open Table. The location is great because it's by this small lake close to Columbia Mall which meant a nice view. We invited family for a get together and made reservations. Since it was Sunday afternoon, we had the place basically to ourselves. The menu had a variety of items. On their website they list all their food items. However when I saw the menu, the entrees I saw said they were only for dinner. Fortunately, our waitress said we can order anything on the menu which we did from the Rack of Lamb to the Crab cakes. We also splurged with the desserts enjoying the Chocolate Cake and Key Lime Pie. All in all a very pleasant dining experience! Convenient garage parking too!

My husband and I visited on a Friday night. The restaurant is in a hotel, but we are locals. There was a large party, but we were seated away from the dividing wall. The tables and chairs appeared well used but clean. We had a beautiful view of the water, with swan shaped paddle boats. Due to the large party, there were no more of the usual fruit cheese plates, so the manager made a custom one for me which was both pretty and tasty. We both enjoyed our meals very much, and plan to return another time. I was surprised to find that NO ONE else was eating there, one other couple was seated just as we were paying for our meal and preparing to leave. This would be a great place to bring friends for a great meal in a quiet atmosphere.

Seafood was very good!
There were very few diners at the Waterside on a Saturday night. In fact, the restaurant was empty when we arrived. The service was great and the food was very good as well. The seafood dishes were very good, we had the salmon and crab cakes. The portions are generous.
