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.

    Perfect spot for a nice dinner before going to a show at Bass Hall. The service was impeccable as we got there early and had just about everyone stopping by the table. The calamari appetizer was juicy and a perfect Segway into the scallops and char. Will look to head back soon.

    Loved Waters. The branzino was unreal!!! Rolled into a nice pen wheel with a great sauce. The girlfriend had the halibut and it was just amazing! We had some great drinks, the dirty dozen oysters were fantastic, and the crème brûlée just melted in your mouth.

    We where greeted when we came in. Table was not ready so we went to bar for cocktail. Took staff about 15-20 minutes to acknowledge us and wait on us. Drinks where very good. Got to table waitress was very good. The only thing we did not enjoy was the crab avocado salad we ordered. Way to much arugula and hardly any crab or avocado Very disappointed. Oyster where delicious and the halibut was great. Beside a few things we had a very great as no relaxing dinner. Really enjoyed the restaurant.

    First time visit. Won’t be the last. My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary and the staff made it special with two glasses of champagne to start the experience. Everything on the menu looked to be scrumptious. Can’t wait to try it all.

    The Cajun scollops were excellent, but the "roasted corn, black bean salsa" was virtually non-existant. Maybe a tea-spoon. The Fish-N-Chips was poor. A surprise batter, unlike that used in Scotland.. A big diappointment. Salad was below average. Dull, not interesting. Our waiter talked so fast that I could not understand anything.

    Best Old Fashioned I’ve ever had. The Oysters Texasfeller were the highlight. I had the Branzino. Pure flavor of the fish. The dressing it’s served with is delicious. The dirty rice was not as good as mama’s.😊

    Everything was wonderful with the exception of tiny printing on the menus and the lack of lighting. Our table by the window was extremely dark. We read the menus by the light of my iPhone flashlight. When the oysters arrived it was impossible to read the menu to identify which oysters were which.

    Decided to splurge on an amazing meal. Had oysters, of course, and salmon and the filet for dinner. The flier was so well cooked. The salmon was amazing and not fishy at all. Service was impeccable. Definitely pricy but so good.
