    I was very disappointed in the amount of Malibu coconut shrimps received for the price, 4 small shrimps for $14.50, I would not get them again. The beef dips were small portions but delicious.

    First visit to this restaurant & the whole experience did not disappoint! Cory was a fantastic server - very attentive & answered all of our questions! The booth that we had was cozy & comfortable. We chose the Chicken Souvlaki & Apple Bourbon Pulled Pork & both were delicious!

    Our dining experience at the Watermark was great. The staff were friendly, efficient and attentive. The tables in the dining room are spaced out well for easy access, maneuverability and distance from other diners.

    This was our first time visiting. The server Andre was outstanding. And the food was excellent. I had some leftover Power Bowl with Jerk Chicken for dinner and it was still good. Will be back. Andre made the experience very pleasant!

    We enjoyed our time for our after dinner snack of wings and Greek fries. Staff was friendly and served us kindly. The final bill came out to a little more than expected for a “snack” but I could have known that going in. Food quality was great.

    The service was great, didn’t understand why there were no windows in the dining room and the music was very random. My dinner was kind of plain but my husband loved his.

    We were there mid afternoon during the week when the traffic was minimal. The service was excellent as was the food. I can’t really say if the noise level would be greater at high traffic time but I expect that with the walls cordoning off areas that the noise would be minimal. All in all it was a great experience

    This is our neighborhood go to and we are never disappointed with the food or service. We enjoy being recognized by the staff and share conversation. It is too bad the rib fest across the street impacted their reservations because the ribbers took over the parking lot, therefore people were cancelling due to no place to park.

    As is customary at the Watermark, we were very pleased with our experience. Janice and Nick always make us feel like family, and Danny’s kitchen consistently provides great taste. We had the jerk chicken power bowl and the weekend prime rib. Both were excellent. In a town historically known for its diners and roadhouses, the Watermark is a welcome change.

    I have been to the Watermark three times. I find the service very pleasant and accommodating, the food is excellent (I always go back for the Asiago Alfredo Pasta - please keep it on the menu, everything is clean and well kept, and the patio is great with plenty of space between patrons. The staff wears masks, which is much appreciated. It's easy to find and near downtown Waterdown. I will return!

    We checked out Watermark Taphouse for the first time this past weekend with our two boys and we had a great experience! Our server Danny was awesome and very friendly. The food was delicious! We sat outside on the patio on a beautiful evening which made our experience that much better. We will definitely we returning again and recommend everyone to check it out!! You won’t be disappointed! 🙂

    Great food, service and overall feel. Had wonderful service, portion were big but pricy. For the quality I didn't mind paying a little more. Would recommend for anyone, we brought our 10 year old and he loved the food, the many tvs in the bar area and I can't say the same for all places we visit.
