    What a fantastic experience! We had drinks at the bar before dinner & enjoyed ourselves chatting with The nicest bartender. Then we were seated by such a character Maitre De. Our waiter was perfect always checking in on us & taking very good care of us. The food was so good - steaks cooked to perfection & juicy & tasty, a huge bone in veal chop, tasty onion rings & Parmesan crusted French fries. We all enjoyed the salad that came with the meals & the vegetables & potato! Great food, great prices & great staff!

    Was really looking forward to a nice dinner here, but unfortunately we were disappointed. Everything from the bread to the clams to the fish, string beans, and burger bun was drowning in butter. Lack of seasoning on almost everything. Had the Chilean sea bass that had a sweet sauce to it (was assuming a classic butter/lemon prep), but that wasn't specified on the menu or I wouldn't have ordered it. Burger came out undercooked. The service on the other hand was excellent. Our waiter was very sweet and attentive. Wish we had a better meal!

    What a wonderful meal for a birthday celebration. The food was delicious and the portions were quite generous. The wine was good, too. Because it was right after Mother's Day there was only one other table used in the room - that was fine with us. Quiet and time for conversation. It has been 12 years since we were there last but we will not wait that long to return. Jody

    Have been going here for years. Service is always great and the food is very good. And quite a value for what you get. Wine prices are very reasonable as well. (Caymus Cabernet is only around $130/b and sells for $100+ retail in stores).

    Everything was great until we received our entrees. We ordered the fillet mignon. Both were cooked tomorrow liking. However, the steak was bland, but nothing a little salt and pepper couldn't fix.

    This was my wife’s Birthday dinner and it was excellent. The staff were attentive and so nice. They even sang happy birthday to my wife (our kids loved that!). The food and let’s face it that is what it’s all about, was excellent, oysters were fresh, creamy and had a delicious flavor, the entrees were well presented, proportioned and tasted great. All in all a really enjoyable experience and we will be back.

    We had one of the best steak dinners! My husband said the prime rib was outstanding. Our foodie son loved his oysters and the bone-in rib eye. My skirt steak was delicious. The service is friendly and very attentive. We met the owner Sal and he delighted us with the history of the restaurant. The garlic bread and salad which is included are wonderful. This was our first meal at Water’s Edge and we are certain to return.

    The food was disappointing. Shrimp cocktail was dry, think shrimp was prepared too early and left in fridge which dried them out. Garlic bread also sat too long- it was very greasy and not crunchy enough. House salad had one cucumber. Lobster tap was also dry. Meal was very expensive for New Year’s Eve so disappointing on the quality. However, the desert buffet was great!!!

    Our waiter Douglas was fantastic! He was a lot of fun and very professional all at the same time! We had a very nice evening!…. as always…. Also on a side note, I didn’t have cash on me for the valet so Giovanni was able to put a quick charge through for me at the front desk - they’re very accommodating and really nice people! Thanks WEG! 👍🏻
