They put on such a big display of all kinds of food and it was terrific. My daughters and I are making it a new tradition. Thank you to all the staff and managers you guys rock!!!!!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely Mother's Day BrunchLovely Mother's Day Brunch 5/12/13. Accommodating staff. Glorious venue on upper enclosed porch with water view. Tasty menu - and outstanding variety of dishes. Please note that the mimosas are NOT included in the brunch pricing. Also, the restaurant added an automatic 18% gratuity - we were a party of two. I thought that 18% was generous - as this was a brunch buffet and we had to serve ourselves.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was delicious. IThe food was delicious. I had the fish special and it was specular. We had a person in our party that has many food allergies and it was handled in a lovely manner. Nothing was too much for the kitchen. We will definitely return.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant overall. Well worth it.The prices are reasonable and the water view is nice. It's a little small but that doesn't take away from the experience.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNice place for outdoor diningI went here with a friend and we sat outside. We enjoyed watching the crew teams and the swans. It was a nice backdrop to enjoy our beer and appetizers. We were too full after appetizers to eat salads or entrees, but the food from other tables that passed by looked great. We are in our early thirties and were by far the youngest people eating dinner there at 7:30 on a Friday night, but other than that, the food and service made for a great meal.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWednesday at The WatermanThe second time we've been and just as good as I remembered. We had a lovely table by the window overlooking the water, cocktails, wine, dinner and dessert were all excellent, as was the service. The only discomfort was the air condiitoning was blowing on our table.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant has gottenThis restaurant has gotten better and better. We had good food and drink, and the service was excellent.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this place, especialyLove this place, especialy the friendly people, David the Manager4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMa favorite for years..likea favorite for years..like the regular menu items and the specials.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful small restaurantWonderful small restaurant along the Seekonk river. Too chilly to be outside but I expect that makes the experience even better. Bloody Mary's were outstanding...and we are very particular about BMs...and the food was very good. My wife had the lobster/squash grilled cheese, one daughter had the frittata (very tasty but quite small), her twin had the Italian which she said was great, and I had the Newport Benedict which actually suffered from a lack of flavor in the green chile-tomato-red onion aïoli. Rather hard to imagine but it did.
I would definitely go back if I lived in or return to the area but Atlanta is a little far away.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place and consistentlyGreat place and consistently good; nice menu; only negative was adjacent table was very noisy otherwise highly recommend4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed a nice dinner withEnjoyed a nice dinner with good friends prior to PPAC. My wife had the Lobster Mac and Cheese. Very large portion, so I got a taste, and it was great. Other dishes were equally good including the scallops, grilled shrimp and Waterman steak. Great dinner!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is the third time weThis is the third time we have visited within the past month. Each time was as good as the last. This was our first brunch at Waterman Grille and we were overwhelmed by the Duck confit omlette to which we added havarti and roasted mushrooms for a never before seen masterpiece.
Our friends enjoyed the salmon cakes with poached egg and holandaise.
It won't be long before we return, maybe next time for lunch.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best food I have everThe best food I have ever tasted a+++++ in my book4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe really enjoyed our experienceWe really enjoyed our experience at the Waterman Grille. We had the chefs 3 course menu and the food was fantastic. Add the bottle of wine and its still a great deal. We also enjoyed some cocktails. They were very well made and super tasty. Our server, Prana, was excellent. She was friendly, knowledgable and attentive. She informed us of the rewards program. Which is great since we will be having dinner at one of their restaurants on an upcoming trip to Newport. We would go back anytime.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThere for Easter brunch.There for Easter brunch.

The wait staff was very attentive and friendly, getting us in to our table even though we arrived ~20 minutes earlier than our reservation. Very nice view of the river. Definitely recommended!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time and we will be back!Great service, great food, great location! This was our first time at The Waterman Grille and we has a great table for two in the far corner overlooking the water. Can't wait to go back when the weather it's a warmer and dine outside!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I visited WatermanMy husband and I visited Waterman Grill for the first time for our anniversary. It was a very nice restaurant. The Filet Mignon was nice and tender and very flavorful! My husband had the Sam Adams Beer Battered fish and chips. He said it had excellent flavor as well. The sweet potato French fries were a nice change from the regular fries typically made with fish and chips. The Cole slaw was excellent and not mushy (like found with other fish and chips places). The dining area was small however made for a very nice experience all together. We will definitely consider returning for other private meals.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMTook friend here for a birthday.Took friend here for a birthday. Food was absolutely amazing, cheese platter was an amazing surprise! SO GOOD!!! Wait staff was attentive and observant. Before he started waiting on the table he overheard me tell the water "guy" I would like a wine list and presented it immediately. Not overbearing just perfectly attentive. The scallops were amazing and the SHRIMP dish I had was the best shrimp dish EVER!!! We did have to ask to be moved because the small table they originally sat us at -we felt in the middle of two isles. They moved us as soon as they could. The function room downstairs is amazing and wish they served down there too! The manager actually comped $15 off our bill as a first time guest! WHO DOES THAT!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMBy the water with great viewsThis great restaurant is just down the river from our Rowing Club and is well known among our members for it's good food and great martinis! If you come during daylight hours for brunch or a dinner in summer, you'll see Brown Univ and Narragansett Boat Club crew teams and single shells pass by constantly. I had a sea scallops and risotto, a spinach salad and onion soup, and my wife is vegan so she asked for the vegetarian menu which they have. Vegans can find vegan selections in the vegetarian menu.
Atmosphere, Service, and Food are all great and you'd have to work hard to find fault in this long established neighborhood favorite.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had not been to WatermanWe had not been to Waterman Grille in some time and I certainly regret that now. The food was wonderful, service was lovely and the atmosphere is almost magical. We will be back soon.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been to Waterman GrilleI have been to Waterman Grille several times for brunch, it has never disappointed! Their menu changes frequently to reflect the seasons. Food is always beautifully prepared. Their brunch beverages include a blood orange mimosa which is amazing! The service is always polite and attentive.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMI am so glad my son choseI am so glad my son chose your place for his birthday dinner. It was great. One reason we choose Waterman Grill was of your Gluten Free menu and the wonderful choice of vegetables and salads. One person in our party is on a special diet and she had more than enough choices. It is great to go out to eat when everyone can enjoy their meal. We will be back.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant was advertisedThis restaurant was advertised in a magazine (don't remember which one and we decided to give it a try. Glad we did. Everything was superb.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service here was outstandingThe service here was outstanding -- attentive without being overbearing -- while the food was very good, almost great. The cheese plate appetizer was excellent, the fish tacos were very good but a bit bland, and the salads were plentiful and fresh (though the salmon topping one of our salads was suprisingly bland and not charred with any of the wood fire flavors we expected). Also, the flourless chocolate torte was top notch, but the espressro was just so-so. All in all -- and especially because of the friendly service -- this was a very nice experience, and we'd gladly return here.1/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
