    This was the first time we visited The Water's Edge Restaurant. I reserved with no problem and took my family for a birthday dinner. The atmosphere was beautiful inside and out. The service was great, very attentive. The food was fantastic, from the beginning to end. My kids loved the food too, which is sometimes hard to please. Can't wait to return.

    This is an amazing restaurant for a date night/ anniversary dinner, or any special occasion. The inside is beautiful and the food was incredible. The only con was the wait for the food was a little long but it was worth it in the end. Highly recommend.

    We were looking forward to our Valentine’s Day dinner, and it did not disappoint! Rob makes me the best “fuzzy navel” cocktail; he says he has a secret ingredient. The wine choices are extensive, too. We shared the tapas and avocado toast as our appetizers—delicious and so artfully prepared! We savored every bite; I love avocado toast and this was amazing. Then we each had the Char Grilled Prime Pork Tenderloin; the cranberry “gastique” with the sweet apple/onion and sweet potatoes is amazing. It’s one of our favorites. Then we enjoyed the special dessert, a pistachio torte. Everything at Water’s Edge is amazing and memorable. We will be back! (I took pictures but couldn’t download them.)

    My friends and I came to the Poconos for a girls weekend and we wanted to go to a nice dinner. The Water’s Edge is a beautiful restaurant. Very cozy on the inside with their fireplace and the lighting is inviting. Our server’s name was Rob and he was excellent. Extremely attentive, friendly, and helpful when it came to questions about the menu. I do have to complain about the bartender that evening. We ordered 2 espresso martinis and an extra dirty Tito’s martini. The espresso martinis were translucent. There is no way that actual espresso was used. We sent that back and got a bottle of wine instead. The dirty martini tasted like straight vermouth. My friend asked for a side of olive juice which made it drinkable. The crab and Gouda fondu was delicious. The butternut squash bisque was as well! All of our meals were very good - shrimp risotto, strip steak, duck, and the Chilean sea bass. However, the sea bass was not a big portion at all. Not for the $45 that is charged. All in all, we enjoyed ourselves and would consider coming back if we’re ever in the area again!

    The service was great and the ambiance was really nice ( nice warm fireplace and a pretty frozen pond outside the window) but the food just wasn’t good. I really wanted to like it but my beef polenta dish tasted like it had been microwaved one to many times and my husband was served well done tuna (he asked for rare) and different sides than he was told would come with it. Although my cat enjoyed the tuna and the dog enjoyed the overdone beef.

    On vacation in Clifton renting an airbnb for my boyfriends birthday. Picked this restaurant from the great reviews I saw online. Glad we went here! Food was amazing and service was impeccable. The staff really loved to share their knowledge of the best drinks and food in their menu! Im pregnant so I wanted a mocktail just to satisfy my cravings and the staff had come over and took the time to really figure out what to make for me. Just the service alone I was really impressed with. The ambiance was a plus as well so romantic and warm inside with a beautiful view of the fireplace and of the water. Totally recommend this place! Oh and the butternut squash soup was soooo goodddd 😍. Id give it a 10/10 🤩

    As most locations in the Poconos, you will think you're lost. Fortunately, at the end of the long dark road, there lies The Water's Edge. The moment we entered, the feel of mountain lodge meets Swiss Chalet. The appetizers were unique and delicious. The cocktail/wine list, impressive for my NYC attitude. The service was great and our server(sorry forgot her name) was knowledgeable and attentive. All meals were prepared at the right temp and well plated. We did not know they offered a 6 course tasting/wine pairing but will definitely try that in the near future. A big thank you to the Water's Edge for making our experience A+!!

    An outstanding dinner. We had the Seared Chilean Sea Bass. It was prepared perfectly! It also happens to be my favorite. I do make all my soups myself from scratch. The butternut bisque put mine to shame. As for the desserts….leave room for a bit of Heaven. Everything is superb! The head chef, Ryan, does an amazing job. He and his wonderful staff prepare the most mouthwatering dishes. And the presentations are works of art. The wait staff sees to your every need. Not the “run of the mill” restaurants you usually find. A perfect place if you are looking for dinner for two. Or, perhaps, a night out with friends. Families, too! A warm, cozy atmosphere that all can enjoy. Even with the pond frozen, the accent lights on the birches made it feel like a special winter retreat. Do not pass up a chance to diner here. You will be coming back many times.

    A shout out to The Water's Edge at Memorytown, Mt Pocono, PA. My husband and I went to this restaurant on New Years Eve. We originally had a reservation for 7:30. We figured we would go early and have a drink at the bar. It was really early, and the restaurant even had settings at the bar. So the manager was nice enough to give us a table earlier. What a place, years ago a fabulous bar/restaurant, rustic with fire department patches from all over that were on the walls...and now a beautiful restaurant, the patches are gone and now white table clothes and lighting were added to make this a more formal style restaurant. The food was outstanding, we started with their Ceasar salad, with the most delicious anchovy dressing, jumbo croutons, and anchovies on top...delicious. my husband had center cut NY strip steak, cooked to perfection, on top of smashed potatoes, demi glaze, and asparagus. I had the Shrimp Risotto (6), with butternut squash and pancetta. If anyone is ever in Mount Pocono, visit Memorytown and The Water's Edge... you will not be disappointed.

    We purchased a New Years Package that included dinner at the Waters Edge Restaurant. We chose to do the 6 course "Chef's Tasting" with premium pairings over the regular dining menu. One of the courses was duck. Not being fond of duck, I did try it and it was "ok". However all the other courses and wine pairings were excellent and the food presentation on the plates was very nicely done. It was not an inexpensive meal but we thoughly enjoyed it and the slow pace at which it was served. I would recommend it for a special night out and we will most likely return knowing the Chefs Tasting will be a completely different menu. Thanks to our awesome server and chef for a memorable meal on New Years Eve.

    We have been here three times, food is very good and the service is always excellent. The kitchen is always slow, we waited about 40 minutes for entrees after our appetizers. Management needs to figure out why the kitchen is so slow especially since they were not crowded.
