The only problem we had while dining at Water’s Edge was that we asked to start out with a shrimp cocktail and the waitress completely forgot and ended up never bringing it out. Other than that, she was nice and the food was very good. The ambiance was perfect for our Valentine’s Day date.

I'm very disappointed with our latest meal at Water's Edge. We have been to Sunday brunch twice before and really enjoyed our meal. This time, not so much. The food delivery was delayed and when it got to us it was cold and tasteless. The French toast was served without butter, not surprising since it certainly couldn't have melted. The bacon was overcooked and the grits were blah. We were not offered coffee cup replenishing until we were done with our meal.

Water’s Edge has always been a favorite of ours for great food and service. My husband ordered the calamari appetizer and I had the mussels. Both were extremely good. For dinner he had the paella, which he normally gets, and I had shrimp and scallops Alfredo. He was somewhat disappointed in the paella which wasn’t prepared with saffron rice. It also appeared to be on the dry side. My only issue with the pasta is the scallops were very bland. My suggestion would be to sear them before adding to the dish. Our server was adequate considering she had several tables of which a couple were large parties. We have always enjoyed Water’s Edge but unfortunately, this time is was just “okay”. But we shall return soon.

The brunch food was served a bit cool. Would have loved hot eggs and meat! Tasted good though. Service was just ok. We enjoyed being there, and would go back.

Great location and views but I’ve had better brunch at an embassy suites. We ended up staying two hours because we could never find our waiter for refills on drinks or for the check.
