    I was expecting a little bit more from the food aspect of things and the sauces were very good but the fish was mediocre our server did not ask my fiancé how he wanted the special meat dish. Overpriced

    Being on the water is great but you have to upgrade your food in order to keep us coming back. Sloppy presentation, & the flavor was basic and very dated.

    The staff were all wonderful, knowledgeable and attentive, I'm fussy about my fish and I felt it was small and over cooked, as it was mostly dry. I like to be able to pick my sides as my diet is restricted. I think there needs to be alternatives to cows milk, ie: soy, almond, cashew, oat etc. and include more plant based options overall, since there's a trend toward healthier eating and diets. Thanks for asking Paula Rudder

    We attended as a celebratory dinner for a friend. We had reservations and were seated promptly. Our server, Austin, was charming and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was delicious for two of the three of us and pretty good for the third. We love Water’s Edge for special occasions and will visit again, but felt the prices were a bit steep.

    I love taking out of town guests to the Shem Creek area! Water's edge and Vickeries have the best food on the creek! Our server, blue eyed dude, was hilarious and attentive. My family very much enjoyed the experience as well as the food!

    the view from the water side is wonderful. the service is excellent. the quality of the food is ok. mashed potatoes and squash cold. Friend seafood over-coated with flour. The quantity of the seafood was good. the shrimp was really good, fried fish hard to find for the coating vastly overwhelmed the fish. liked the scallops and oysters. the seafood platter is good, just wish the temperatures of the dishes were evenly warmer.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my dining experience. I especially enjoyed the interactions with amazing bartenders at the Cabana-Jonathan and Lacey. Though I don’t recall the servers name, he was very attentive to my dietary needs and was very pleasant. I will be returning again.

    Went for Valentine’s Day. It was really nice. The seating overlooks the water unless inside. The only thing I didn’t like is the menu didn’t accurately describe how my meal would be. It ended up being this soupy mess with lots of tomatoes and the seafood just thrown in it. Other than this it was a great experience! Would go again.

    Disappointing. Visiting and chose Water's Edge based on selections in their online menu. None of them are available! Although owners changed in March 2019, online menu has not changed. Actual menu entirely different. Ordered calamari (too salty), she-crab soup (also too salty), avocado hummus (excellent) and bread (also excellent).

    I was disappointed in the quality of the food. The ambiance was nice though. Our experience would have been great if the food quality was a match to the environment of the restaurant. I am sure you will make a note of my experience and improve it for future visits.

    Our waiter was incompetent and seemed to be preoccupied. Was asked for two desserts and coffee. He brought one dessert and said the cofffee was being brewed after we had completed dessert. He seemed ill informed about wine selections. The food was not up to par for the price. The spinach salad was delicious.
