Seafood
At Waters Restaurant – Sundance Square, we source the freshest wild, seasonal, and sustainable seafood available. Our style brings together flavors of the southwest, with hints of Louisiana, but our featured ingredients themselves typically speak the loudest. Our Signature Gumbo hastens back to some Creole roots when Jon Bonnell cooked in the French Quarter of New Orleans, while our beef gets the royal treatment Chef Felli has made famous for much of his career. Diver scallops from Maine get a slight TexMex makeover after being perfectly golden-crust-seared, while jumbo lump crabcakes celebrate beautifully fresh crab as their essence, never loaded with fillers just to save a buck. We will never utilize third-world fish farms, cheap seafood substitutes, artificial flavorings, or exploit threatened species at Waters. We strive for only the best experience for our guests, while at the same time being good stewards of our environment and our future.

    Very disappointed in the food. Oysters are very good but our entrees were ok -crab cakes and scallops. Also disappointed that even though we had a reservation the manager would not accommodate request to be reseated. We were told the restaurant was booked and yet a booth near us was open. We will probably not return.

    Excellent appetizers & craft cocktails. Freezing AC: so cold they keep shawl wraps to offer ladies. Small portions. Fabulous waitress! $$$ Oysters and Lobster Mac & Cheese was everyone’s favorite. Entrees were good, but not memorable.

    As always, the best oysters in town and gumbo so good it should be illegal! This might be my favorite dish in Fort Worth. Elliot provided great service. Linda loved her martini made just the way she liked it and my old fashion was spot on!

    As usual, Waters was amazing. We are never disappointed! Hands down, they have the absolute best oyster selection in the DFW metroplex. You can’t find Waters’ variety anywhere else! Our entrees were amazing as usual. Cocktails impeccable. Dessert to die for.

    Delicious food as usual at Waters. Gave us a free drink and a card for our anniversary which wasn’t expected but much appreciated. We have never had a bad experience here and this continues to be true after last nights visit. Can’t wait to go back and try the new specials that are being added to the menu.

    I understand as price goes up, portion size goes down. However, when you have $52 for a 6oz dried out Halibut you do not get what you paid for. The overall dining experience was pleasant. I just wish the food was worth the money. There are too many restaurants that offer better quality food for what I was charged at Waters.

    the food was excellent. it was fresh and flavorful. My wife had the special of Cobia on risotto and it didn't disappoint. I had the crab cakes and they were well prepared. They held up well and didn't fall apart as some crab cakes do. Moist and tender crab with a tartar sauce on a bed of arugula. a nice sancerre topped off the meal.
