This was our second time at the Waterman Grill and we loved it. The food was delicious and plentiful. Our server, Nathan, was attentive, pleasant, and not intrusive. The view of the Seekonk river is great. We will definitely be back.

We were very pleased with our first experience at Waterman Grille. The food was excellent and we had a fun time on our date. The only drawback was my husbands drink seemed to be made not very well, and it’s something simple that he orders everywhere and even makes at home. Not sure if the soda was flat, or if a different product (other than Coca-Cola) was substituted, but he did ask for a second and it was still not much of an improvement...other than that the food was spectacular and we will go back!!

We had appetizers (salads, soup and octopus), entrees and dessert. There were 4 of us and we all enjoyed every component of our meals. We would recommend window seating for the view and because it seemed a little less noisy. Our waiter was excellent! He was extremely attentive, detailed with descriptions and responsive. A special mention about the desserts; the pastry chef is really creative and offers unique, delicious options.

Service was excellent. Matt went above and beyond. My halibut special was fantastic. I did not receive asparagus so Matt quickly resolved that. My wife loved her dinner and the pea soup

The food and service was great. The great octopus, the duck breast and the steak tips were delicious but it was the deep fried brocoli that stole the show.

The filet was out of this world! It was our first time dining there, it’s a little pricey but we will definitely go back because it was a delicious meal. The service was great.

Was brought "upstairs" to a room that was easily 80 degrees. Date said she was fine, but i guess the benefit is I believe I sweated off some of my meal. Service was good, food was solid... but that darn heat. Fireplace though lovely, was blaring! Too bad as the temp was really a factor (date said "she was fine"), and it isn't the least expensive restaurant in the area so would hope for solid ambiance. So avoid that upstairs area, or at least ask to "feel it out" first. Overall a solid meal, though a bit pricey.

The food is consistently fantastic. One of the best filets I’ve had. The service is always excellent. One member of our party has celiac, and they can accommodate gluten free requests. Reserve early, as they fill up fast.

It was our anniversary celebration dinner. A card signed by the staffs and a glass of champagne greeted us with a Happy Anniversary from our server. Our server Scott was knowledgeable, friendly and excellent at providing the best service. The food was well prepared and delicious. We go there frequently and we always enjoy.
