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.

We had an amazing dinner and thoroughly enjoyed our evening. The fried oysters were delicious and had the perfect Texas spin. The tomato and goat cheese appetizer was sublime as was the red snapper.
The two ladies who were our servers were lovely and knowledgeable about the wines and the menu.

Our experience and food at Waters was outstanding. We started with the wine special of sparkling Rose, Jansz from Tasmania which refreshing and wonderful. We both had seafood Gumbo which was loaded with yummy seafood and sausage. The taste was incredible and had a very nice spicy bite. We ordered two entrees- the creole Red Snapper and the Halibut. Both were amazing and tasty. We shared a grilled asparagus side that was perfect. The service was flawless. Overall, this was close to a perfect meal and experience. We will be returning soon.

Waters is a great place to wine and dine your partner or have a dinner meeting. The atmosphere is lively but still quiet enough to hold a conversation. For a bonus, the patio seating allows you to hear the live bands playing outside of the Flying Saucer down the street. Great food and the staff is amazing at what they do especially Isela! 5 STARS

It took 1 .5 hours to get our main meal. The food was good but way overpriced. The server was very nice & personable. Our reservation was initially for 4 and when the party size increased to 6 the staff was very accommodating to update the table.

Dinner was delicious! I had the seafood tower as my meal and hubby had the redfish fish and chips and we shared the special hush puppies side. Service was fast and friendly. However, I noticed on their site that my dish was listed as $20 less than the waiter quoted us. :(. Also, it was my birthday. I was given a nice card with all the staff’s signatures but really thought a nice establishment like this would bring out a surprise dessert to help celebrate. Nothing.... very disappointed in this choice for the, otherwise 5-star rating I would have given. We’ll see if we return...

The service was the best we've had in ages. The food is on the pricier side, but worth it. If you're looking for the experience on a tighter budget, the happy hour menu is top notch. Oysters and waigu burgers for less than $20? Yes, please. Overall, a great dining experience for our group of four on a Saturday. Will we go again? Absolutely!

The food and drinks were outstanding as always!! We had the swordfish special and the halibut that is usually on the menu. The fresh oysters were outstanding as well!

Last night was the most disappointing service we have ever had at Waters. Our waiter was less than attentive (to us). He was forgetful as well. (Again, to us, at least.) It’s the first time we have ever left a subpar tip. The waiter we had definitely didn’t fit the atmosphere we are used to… though he was incredibly “kind, attentive, and informative” to the table behind us. Perhaps he decided he didn’t vibe with us from the get-go?? Who knows… but in a Bonnell Restaurant, he was certainly disappointing!

Service was excellent. Beautiful restaurant. The appetizers and drinks were wonderful especially the fried oysters. The crab cakes were okay but nothing special. The Fish and Chips (halibut) was very dry and not the best I have had by any means.

I would definitely go back for appetizers and drinks though!

The food was delicious. I had a dirty dozen and can't wait to go back. Too bad you aren't open for lunch. Unfortunately, only patio seating was available. I ended up sitting on oversized padding and sank down below the table. I know better for next time. I wish indoor seating was available. Good for you, but bad for me.

Expensive but best high quality seafood anywhere. Felt “rushed” by our waiter. Had a bottle of wine, appetizers, salad and main course with the bill arriving 62 minutes after we sat down. Wine by the bottle is way overpriced. Popular wine I last bought at Total Wine for $49 was priced at $144 on their menu. Bought it anyway as it was my wife’s birthday.
