Atmosphere was beautiful for a date night. We sat outside overlooking the bay. Food and cocktails were delicious and the service was excellent. Highly recommend

Walked in and wasn’t impressed. Even with a reservation they didn’t actually have a table for us and they seated us on the sidewalk not in their actual restaurant patio. If it wasn’t for the amazing service provided by Erick it would’ve been a very bad experience. Food was amazing service was great. Table was horrible.

Horrible service but pretty view. We had a reservation, when we got there we were sat without menus as they were all out. After a few minutes a server asked if we were sat by the hostess as if we had sat ourselves. After about 10 minutes the hostess brought us 1 menu and after about 5 minutes another server let us know he would be with us shortly. After another 15 minutes of no one coming to the table and watching the server tend to 2 more tables without anyone even offering us water we decided to leave.

Food was definitely not worth the price (if you buy a nice meal). But the atmosphere, view, and service were great!

We went for brunch. There were very few people as the resturant had just opened. We were seated on the patio with a beautiful view of the water. The waiter was very attentive and friendly. Food was good and they had large portions. Very good experience!

Great food, especially liked the crab cakes! Location is nice, lots of outdoor seating, and in a busy waterfront location - people will be walking by and scoping your dining options. Overall, very enjoyable. Reservations on weekend help, tough to get same day.

Crab cakes! Two huge crab cakes were the highlight of lunch on the waterfront. Comes with a nice side salad of simple arugula and cherry tomato, but made a full meal by adding French fries. The crab cakes were very tasty, fries crispy, nice cold beer, great service, made for a perfect midweek lunch break.

Went for brunch over labor day weekend. We ordered fish and chips, the burger, breakfast burrito and waffles. Food came out cold, we sent the fish and chips back and they re fried the same food and it still came out luke warm and hard. Our waiter was great but they were understaffed and he was waiting on everyone. Great view of the water and people watching but food not great and service slow.

Service was slow. An hour and a half before we got our food from our reservation time.Thats crazy talk. Took 25 mins to order drinks. Normally I would've left after that wait but literally no where else was open in the area. The food was ok when it finally got there but def not worth the wait. Bummer bc the location is amazing.

We were a group of 3, celebrating a friend’s birthday.
1. Worst service I ever received - I think our mistake was going to the restaurant with 8:30pm reservation. My point being we should not have gone that late. Our water glasses were filled only the first time after we got seated. No refills for water. No one would wait on us. But again if the servers are not ready to wait on someone that late it would only be fair for the restaurant management to not make reservation option available at that hour!
2. While making the reservation I made enquiry about what special is done if we are celebrating someone’s birthday. We were told that the person celebrating birthday would be given a dessert at the end of the meal. But that never came. I did remind the server at the start of the meal that we are celebrating my friend’s birthday. At the end when the dessert didn’t come, I felt too awkward to remind the server again
3. I have a mixed response here.....There was a mistake with the order. One of us got crab cake while something else was ordered. We were glad about this mistake for two reasons. We got to taste crab cake... free of cost. We all agreed that their crab cake was the best. I recommend it.
4. Even when I called (on phone) the restaurant receptionist after making reservations to get clarification on few questions.... the person at the other end was so much in hurry to get done with the call. I felt as if I am forcing that person to talk to me :(

Average place at best. Friendly staff but food basic and bland. You pay for the Covid outdoor seating view (which is great). Not worth the effort.

Came to visit from Las Vegas. Was able to sit out on the patio at 9am and had a Eggs Benedict. I was tasty and service was fast and my server was excellent. I highly recommend this place. Even better then you go early. Not crazy busy like it is during lunch rush

The food was underwhelming, especially for the price. The fish and chips were a little soggy, the fries were all clumped together, and there was about 2 bites of warm coleslaw.

Crabcakes are on the spicey side. A bit to much for my taste. Mango avocado crab stack not quite what we expected either. The flavor was pretty good. Very little crab. The view is awesome. Food not so much.

Edgewater Grill was a good spot (albeit expensive) for date night dinner. We sat out on the patio by the water and had a heater by the table if we wanted it. Service was friendly and prompt. Food was good--we had the stuffed scallops and the salmon. My only complaint is they had a photographer who would go to each table to take a complimentary picture and then came back to ask you to buy copies of it. Things like that just seem tacky for a restaurant with such high prices ($160 total for the 2 of us).

Food was great--had booked a table for my husband's birthday. We brought our dog with us--server brought him some bacon when our food arrived--very sweet of her. We sat outside near the waterfront and they quickly brought us an umbrella for shade. I ordered the veggie omelet with potatoes--the potatoes were cooked perfectly and the omelet was delicious. My husband ordered the breakfast burrito--huge! He enjoyed it and we brought some of it home for later. I would recommend this place, especially as a destination during CV-19 times. Easy.

Excellent view and outdoor ambience- server was great but service was slow. Food was extremely average with exception of fish and chips which were excellent. Was perplexed by woman wandering around the restaurant with her dog who did not appear to be a patron but kept approaching the heater in close proximity to our table.
