A great restaurant, wonderful staff and delicious food; overall great experience. Thank you Waterman Grille for a great night with family !!
Cocktails ok, salad ok. Swordfish, burger and service were excellent. Not a great number of options and a little pricey but gluten free rolls and attentiveness to the Celiac disease were excellent
4/4 dinners were excellent! The porch/outside seating and social distancing was done really well. We will go back again.
We took family members there to celebrate their recent marriage. Everyone was so nice and knowledgeable of the menu. We got some sparkling wine for the celebration. All the food was amazing.
Always have a delicious meal at Waterman..very consistent. Staff is always attentive and always cleaning. Even when I think it is unnecessary.
Awesome food great service
The staff is professional and polite. The food is fresh and delicious.
Was a very relaxing and quiet evening. Perfect date night. Food was delicious as always.
Every meal we have ever had at Waterman Grille has been excellent, for both brunch and dinner.
One of the best restaurants around!
All three meals were way too salty.
Good food and a great view of the bay. I had the shrimp and my girl had the salmon and both were excellent and cooked just right.
We dined on a pleasantly warm outdoor deck that had a great view of the water. The $47 wood-grilled ribeye was spectacular and money well spent. This restaurant has significant coronavirus protections in place. An excellent and worry free experience!
We had a wonderful and intimate dinner for our fifth wedding anniversary this past Friday night. The food was incredible, and the staff was so sweet and generous! These times are tough but they did a great job keeping separation between parties and making sure all our needs were met while still being safe. We will definitely be back.. especially for the scallops!!
We went to the Waterman Grille for a special 'date night' birthday dinner.
Everything was delicious! The waitress was exceptional and the view was perfect!
Excellent in every way!!
Great outdoor porch with heaters overlooking the river!
Good menu selection priced reasonably
Thank you SFox! Glad you enjoyed.
Great service. Great meal. Loved spending our 6th anniversary here!!!!
It was great :)
We have been going to the Waterman Grille for years. I have had some outstanding meals there and some ok meals. Typically the service is always outstanding. However on our last visit this was not the case. We had a reservation and still had to wait 30 minutes after our time slot to be seated. The menu selections were more limited than in the past. Our meals were ok. It just took an extraordinary amount of time to get what really amounted to some eggs. Service was slow and our waitress seemed lethargic ... maybe over worked or stressed out... and that is what struck as... the service was just not there, was not typical. It is not that anyone was rude... that is not what I mean... Folks greeted us, remembered us, and were friendly... But something was just off. This was not a typical experience.
Very sorry to hear this and no, that's not the typical Waterman Grille experience. We will share your feedback with the team as we always strive to be better at what we do. We would love to hear more and encourage you to call Michael Accetta, our General Manager, at401-521-9229. He'd love to discuss your visit and offer his personal apologies.
Staff was great, food was even better. We got the ribs appetizer which was excellent. I got a shrimp dish with Linguine and my wife got a steak cooked exactly how she wanted it. We both enjoyed our meal and had enough room for the "candy bar" dessert. We will definitely be back!
That's great to hear. We all look forward to seeing you back here again.
Excellent food and service. The only thing that was a little disappointing was that there was no fruit in the sangria!
Thank you for the feedback Jennifer, We will discuss with our bar team. We want your drinks to be as good as everything else we serve.
We are never disappointed when we go to WG. My scallops were tender and my husband’s steak was so flavorful. The did a great job making us feel safe in this crazy time.
Thank you Kristen. We are glad you felt safe and were able to enjoy a night out with us.
Terrible service from waitress, steak was burnt so was the broccoli, I also asked for my steak well done & this is what I got... a pink middle & a Burnt Crispy top... Grilled cheese bread was also very stale. The only thing I could eat was the French fries & those were crunchy too. Waitress deserved $0 tip but my girlfriend insisted.
Very sorry to hear this. That's not typical of the quality of our food or our service. We'd love to hear more. Please give our General Manager Michael Accetta a call at 401-521-9229 to discuss. Your satisfaction is important to us.
The waterman is one of our favorites when it comes to food.. always consistent which is what I look for in a restaurant!
Thanks you Michelle! We are thrilled to be considered one of your faves.
Everything was perfect from the person who took our reservation, the hostess, and waitstaff. The food was delicious and the views on the patio were nice and serene.
Brunch was excellent. Superior service and food. Dined outside and except for a few sprinkles of rain, wonderful experience.
Food and service is always on point!
The best ever! Amazing food suited to the season of early fall.... just perfect!
You are too kind! Thank you!
I love everything about this place! Service, food, and ambiance!! Parking available too! We can't wait to go back!
Lovely location and, even better, wonderful food and service.
Delicious food. Beautiful view. Classy ambience
Absolutely excellent! For a meat eater and a vegetarian. Delicious! Absolutely recommend.
We are happy to hear that. Thank you!
Menu was quite limited due to pandemic environment I'm sure but overall a very good experience.
My wife and I both ordered steak, cooked the same way, hers came out cooked perfectly, mine was barely cooked, the waitress came right over and asked if she wanted it cooked more, which I did. When it came back the steak was black and the sides were black as well, nearly inedible. The clam chowder was good though.
We love Waterman Grille, we were even married there, and have been there countless times but this was the first time we were disappointed. Table was great, lovely view. Service was not as attentive as it used to be pre-COVID because the 1 waiter seemed to have all of the outdoor tables. Menu selection was lackluster. Only fish choice was salmon. No filet on the menu. Crab cakes no longer on the menu. Shrimp pasta dish was just ok. Would have been better if the shrimp had been wood fire grilled first as they were a bit on the soft side. Ribeye special was ok but nowhere near worth the $46 price. We hope things get back to the way they were pre-COVID as this had been a favorite spot of ours for years.
They were running late in seating us but when they did, they immediately brought a free Mediterranean appetizer plate to us with a thanks for our patience.
Good place I’ll definitely recommend it to family and friends
Chowder was outstanding!
Blood orange martinis fabulist!
Place is so pretty!!!
Waterman Grille never disappoints. We felt safe, were well fed and taken care of & thoroughly enjoyed our dinner on the porch w heaters.
Everything was great as always.
