Diner Reviews
  • "Had no idea this place existed until I bought a groupon for it. Nice find! Great food and service and a wonderful view. The staff was very helpful with menu suggestions. We both had the special which was sea bass and it was cooked perfectly. They had live music out on the patio the night we were there. I will definitely be back."

  • "We've had Sunday breakfast, and just had a fun dining experience for dinner. The patio is pleasant for seeing the boats in the harbor and for enjoying the bar-b-qued tri-tip and chicken, or ribs. The live music was great, but just a tad too loud. Looking forward to trying other things on the menu."

  • "When you spend $75+ for a romantic dinner for two, you expect delicious food and ambiance. The Waterside only provided one of the two. Our steak tacos were completely fatty...there was no meat worth eating in either of them. Our pork was supposed to have an Asian taste profile, but instead tasted like straight pepper. Also, it was quite fatty, as well. Our waitress was great, and the wines were good, but I wouldn't go back here...for food anyways."

  • "This time of year the Waterside Restaurant is especially wonderful for an out door meal. Lovely vies of the harbor with water craft coming and going, and a tent umbrella's to create a cozy sheltered atmosphere. The Pork Loin was delicious!"

  • "They are very well-meaning but they don't have the experience yet for a weekend primetime crowd."

  • "Went here for dinner in the evening. It was great music and great view but the food was not good. The bread basket was stale. My husband's steak was poor quality-full of grizzle. My chicken breast was dry. Not worth the atmosphere or the good music."

  • "For a grand experience, visit the neighboring Farmer's Market on Sunday morning 9am-1pm, and the enjoy music and a meal on the Waterside's bay view patio . The talented chef visit's the market early to pick the very freshest produce to incorporate into the daily menu which never disappoints. AND, as a special treat inquire about the Wine Maker Dinner's beginning in September. We recently enjoyed Herzog Winery's offering's accompanied by an amazing menu, all served in the Waterside's elegant private dining room."

  • "We had a reservation for Father's Day Brunch and were super excited to eat here. They put us at a table right next to the band. Great music, but was simply too loud for us to converse, so we asked to be moved. Went to the bar, had a drink and waited. Asked the head guy three times if our table was ready. Waited. Asked several waitresses when our table was ready. Waited. Then we were told that there were clearing a table for us. Waited. We asked again and waited some more. Finally the waitress pointed to a table and said "there's your table". Unbelievable. We left. They never even tried to apologize to us for waiting almost an hour. At least they didn't charge us for our drink! The food looked good, but we never tasted it."

  • "We had a family open house at our rental on Hollywood beach. It went longer than anticipated into dinner hour. I had reservations for five people at the Waterside so called and they were able to accommodate adding seven more at a single table. The staff were great. The menu was limited but tasty, prepared well, and enjoyed by all. The view of the harbor was great. We were not rushed, enjoyed the entertainment on the patio, and had a great time as a large group at the Waterside."

  • "We visited this restaurant while on vacation in the area. Got a lovely table outside. Needed heaters and blankets but it was comfortable. Had a very nice waitress but she seemed overwhelmed and very busy. Waited a long time to get a drink order or order food and food was very slow. They seemed to be out of several items by our 7:00 dining time as well. When the food did come, it was mostly good. Seafood chowder very tasty. Trio of spreads were nice. Steaks were good. The fish special was overcooked but it had a nice flavor. Pork was good as was the burger. Not sure why everything seemed a bit out of sorts this night but it was. Live music was great and enjoyable. Not too loud for eating and talking."

  • "First time here on a lovely (although windy) Sunday. The people were warm ... busy because of the event so food took a while but weren't in a hurry. All was well made and tasty. Portions a bit smaller. Loved the fruit salad. Great music added to the experience! Will return to try a different time of day."

  • "Love going to this little neighborhood gem! The girls and I arrived for a bit of vino and some appetizers at the end of a hectic day. The cheese plate was delectable and the bon mi sandwich was overstuffed with rich pork goodness! The wine list is quite extensive with a tasting of wine flights available at request. Pair these with the incredible Marina views and you get a wonderful and relaxing evening with the girls! "

  • "We did the Sunday Brunch which was sourced from the Farmer's Market adjacent. Everything was really tasty. If I wasn't driving I would have taken full advantage of the free flowing mimosas."

  • "Used a living social deal and it was our first time visiting this restaurant. Definitely a great choice for our "date night", romantic setting, beautiful location and we were lucky to have live music playing outside. It was a bit chilly so we opted for indoor seating. The service was amazing, especially since we asked for a different table than the one we had reserved. Unfortunately did not get to taste their signature duck dish as they had run out."

  • "Marina type restaurant with barely adequate food....trading on location, most defitely not their food."

  • "After the glowing report and description of menu options in the Star Newspaper, we were somewhat disappointed with the limited brunch menu. They explained that some of the menu items are changed every week, depending on produce available. What we ordered was good, but nothing exceptional or out of the ordinary. We will have to try it for lunch and hope that more variety is available."
