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.

Waters is a restaurant where you can have a nice flavorful meal, enjoy the ambiance, and a mix of American flavored seafood dishes. The raw oysters are really good,the calamari, the texafella oysters, and the swordfish are all pretty tasty.

Waters is my favorite restaurant! Jon and his staff are always kind, considerate and do an outstanding job! We went to Waters tonight not only for a great and relaxing meal but also to support Jon and his staff after a ridiculous week for them! Thank you for keeping us and yourselves safe during this crazy time! Stephen and Sherette Kimmel

Outstanding food - started with a dozen oysters (2 of 6 different varieties) and fantastic drink specials (apple / cranberry mule and quarantine cocktail). Followed up with delicious arctic char and halibut entrees and sides of garlic, cheese fries and asparagus. Sat outside on the shaded patio - excellent ambience and service.

The hostess seemed unprepared and was short though not unfriendly. Our waiter was spread too thin for his skill level and a bit over the top in presentation.

The food was average and priced as expected.

Anniversary/birthday dinner. Placed in a high traffic space with a broken table. Food was “meh” for the price. Couldn’t hear each other talk.

Tip was written in and we were not a large party.

Second burn by Bonnell restaurants. Will not return.

This is our third time to Waters but first since the pandemic. We made a reservation for the outside seating on a Friday night. We were seated right away. Tables were spaced out all staff was wearing masks and the menu was from a qr code so following all CDC guidelines. Food and service was excellent as always. Will be back again when in town.

Wanted to sit outside and still have nice birthday experience. The outside patio at Waters restaurant is near street so you get entertainment at a distance. Food, Wine and service are high caliber....staff signed birthday card for my wife which was a thoughtful touch.

Waitress was great! Food was ok. First time trying oysters so I can't really judge those. Goat cheese & tomato salad was really good - probably the biggest surprise of the meal. Scallops were slightly above average. Halibut was below average. Lobster mac & cheese was average. All told, it was an average meal.
