After reading some negative reviews we are happy to report that we had a great evening, dinner, drinks and service.
Also really enjoyed the music. Every Friday the Sebastian Project Band plays there. Worth checking out.
I oedered a Vieux Carre cocktail. The first one, they messes it up by putting a lot of ice It. The second one was perfect with one very small ice cube. Julie our waitress was great and made the evening enjoyable.

We celebrated our anniversary by having dinner at Watercolour Grillhouse on a Tuesday evening. From the start, our experience was excellent and without issue. The staff we interacted with was very polite, courteous, and knowledgeable. Our dinner (Steak Filet dish and Grouper dish) were reasonably priced and cooked as requested. We would definitely recommend Watercolour Grillhouse and go back for dinner again. Thanks for a great evening of food and drinks.

We ate here a couple weeks ago and we’re comfortable because the staff masked and had good covid practices but yesterday all that had been abandoned. It was so loud we couldn’t talk. Food was still good but the experience wasn’t worth the cost this time.

It took an hour for the entrees to arrive, which put a damper on the anniversary dinner. Scott was a terrific waiter, regardless.

Weirdly, a lot of giant horse flies. At least 5 on the window we sat by. Food was good but maybe not priced accordingly. Environment, other than the flies, was good.

The restaurant appears to be a favorite for locals as the bar area was quite busy with locals. There was live music but it was loud - too loud for the dining room. The bar and dining area were open. The food was excellent. My husband’s filet was delicious and spot on at medium rare. My Chilean sea bass was excellent too. The bread pudding - which they gave us complimentary for our anniversary - was amazing! It is made with Krispy Creme donuts! Our server, Scott, was excellent - his recommendations were accurate 100% and he was attentive without being annoying. We will return - definitely a pleasant surprise for a hotel restaurant.

The hostess did not give us the table we wanted. However, no one used the table the entire time we sat at our table. Our table was closer to the bar and was noisy. When I reserved our table, I noted that I preferred next to the window and away from the bar. She would not give us the table we wanted because she said the table was reserved although no one used it the entire time we were at our table. The food is good but overpriced. Our service was excellent.

We sat outside by the water and taking in the view as we started with the rye loaf and garlic butter and thoroughly enjoyed it all. We both had the sea bass grilled with the piccata preparation. It was amazing.

We requested to sit outside, so this is a little bit on us. There wasn't a problem until our main dinners arrived and flies came out of nowhere to attack us. Again, it's not the restaurant's problem - although a bug zapper might help. Food and service were excellent.

We had a reservation for outdoor dining. A large party was expected to leave 30 minutes prior to our reservation but this didn't happen. We ended up being seated about 20 minutes late. However, the host offered us a free round of drinks, which we accepted.

In the bar, a band was playing live music which was quite good -- but so loud we couldn't even enter the bar area. Note to band: you are pretty good, but 3X louder than you need to be in such a small space.

After being seated outside, everything was fine aside from the long wait for our meals. We were not served until after 9:15 pm. It took an inordinate amount of time for our dinner to arrive.

The side of asparagus was large enough for 4 people to share.

As a note, the peanut butter pie is not too be missed.

A bit pricey especially when considering the service experience.

Our experience was amazing; we were sitting outside and the sun was setting. The food was very flavorful and delicious; we shared the crab cake, roasted cauliflower, grill house salad, and the lobster mac and cheese; we did not regret anything! This is definitely a place we will visit again.
