Excellent food and service. Can be loud if there is a party going on in their party room. They have a lovely deck also. Great for lunch or dinner.

They have American food but with a twist. So many good options, I can’t wait to go back. Parmesan chicken spring roll delicious. They were huge also not what you would think for a spring roll. Cheesesteak fries OMG!!! To die for! Turkey burger, flavored well. The bread was a bit thick so I removed it but the burger was delicious.

I love that it’s American food but different than what you’d normally see. You can tell they’re creative with their menu options. Staff was so friendly. This is just a great place.

Lunch with a client. Are use the OpenTable app to find something close to his office and this was much better than I expected for the area. I’m quite confident that in the evenings the bar crowd is quite lively. The menu was brought in very diverse in a chain kind of way. I would definitely return for a lunch meal.

Unfortunately we were unable to dine. We had a reservation, but were told the restaurant would be unable to seat us when we arrived and they did not know how lung the wait would be. There was a significantly long line already. The covid restrictions the restaurant said they were following are completely understandable. The only minus was the reservation process. If you are unable to guarantee a spot within a reasonable time of the reservation, that is fine. If not, please don’t accept reservations. It was also a very nice day.

Used to come here all the time. New name new menu new staff.. not good. Service was decent the poor waiter was so overwhelmed as they apparently changed the ordering system on a weekend. Took 30 mins to get drinks. Food was awful. So disappointed. Hope they work the kinks out.

Great ambiance, service and most of all, great food and cocktails. Also Very nice bar area inside and outside. Definitely a must go to especially in warm days and enjoy your meals and drinks outside by the water.

Restaurant did not have my reservation. They did not appear to be using the OpenTable system but rather a spiral bound notebook. ??? We were accommodated luckily because it was early.
Great outdoor deck seating overlooking the water. Unfortunately the rain storms drove us inside. A little too cramped for still being in a pandemic.
The restaurant - although opened since last September - still seemed to be working out the kinks. Didn’t have some items beer and food in the menu and the server wasn’t aware. Food was adequate but nothing special. Service was adequate.
Overall a good experience but not sure I will return.

Caught them on a bad day. They where short handed which created very slow service. Outside of that the burger was delicious and I would go back because the outside atmosphere was great.

We sat outside. Food was excellent and so was the atmosphere. Our waitress seemed a little overbooked and it took a little while for us to get our order in. She was very nice and professional.

First let me start by saying STACY is the best. This was our second time dining here, our first time everything was great especially our server STELLA. From being wowed the first time by price service and quality of food we just had to come back. The second time wasn’t as great but Stacy made sure we were well taken care of, which changed everything. The wait to get in was 30 minutes past our reservation time, but that’s only because of COVID restrictions. Service wasn’t as speedy and attentive as the first time. (I’m just assuming they were a little short handed) since all the tables didn’t seem to be getting speedy service either. Our waitress was very polite and I must compliment her on her bartending skills!! The “bad apple” and the “dirty martinis” were on point. I got the crab cakes again which are delicious, they came out late but the taste and quality made up for that. The steak has a great presentation but when you order make sure you order as it says for the burgers “pink or not pink” because my husband ordered medium and it came out well, I mean with NO pink. Since they were understaffed it was amazing to see the manager STACY jump right in and be hands on, from taking orders to running food out. Not only was she hands on she was great under pressure and very polite about it. Her personality and people skills made the few things, way better!!! We would definitely be coming back for more!!!

We went the Saturday after St. Patrick's Day. This was my first time at this restaurant. I made a 6:15 pm reservation and had to wait another half hour, outside, before we got our table. After sitting down our waiter didn't come to the table for about 15-20 minutes. Our food was not good at all and we were all in the bathroom that night. The restaurant bathroom wasn't that clean, which to me, is a good judge of how the kitchen looks. I'm not big on giving reviews, but this experience was so bad I couldn't pass this up.

Nice outside dining area and food was good. Service was terrible though. We were there 20 minutes before our drink order was taken, 40 minutes before drinks arrived, 1:10 to get our appetizers.

I wish I could give more than a 5-star rating on the food. I was so surprised, but Chef Joshua Phan dealt out the best meal I have in the past 2 years. I had the Pork Chop & dining companion had the steak. Portion, quality, taste and presentation on both entrees blew me away. Better than a Starr or Garces venue. Phan even made a statement with our Fried Mozzarella entree.... capers!!! who would have thought. Also need to comment on the Covid precautions, as well. They are doing it right. I just wish the sun was still shining at 5:30, I would h ave loved to dine outdoors. I can't wait to return. What a hidden gem, if you are all about the food.

We went to Water's Edge on a beautiful 70 degree night and reserved for outdoor seating on the patio. Great ambiance out there. Food was excellent, though we found the chicken parm egg rolls overpriced for the fact you only get two, and $3.25 for a cup of soda seems way excessive. Service was friendly, but very slow. Our server would make a loop of her 3 or 4 tables in one shot (which were oddly spread out over the entire deck rather than adjacent to one another), then wouldn't be seen for about 10 minutes. This made it difficult to get refills and when we were waiting to pay. Not a big deal if you're looking to spend a leisurely evening, but if you're looking to have a quick bite, this isn't your place. COVID protocols were decent, though more than a few servers were walking around with masks on their chins, even when talking to customers (fortunately not our server).

One of our favorite outdoor eating spots from last year.
It was an especially warm day for winter, and I think they
were just getting staff going for outdoors. Great burger,
awesome Fish Taco's. Service was a bit slower, but as
I said just getting started outdoors.

Only drawback was the Grey Goose & club, which was
way light on the Grey Goose. Lesson learned, stick with
my favorite red wine. Beyond that, can't wait to go again!
