This was are first visit to Waters Edge. The food was delicious and the service was great! We will definitely be going back.
Great food although food takes a bit longer than average to get to the table. I’d come back, though!
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
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.
Serving size was very large but it was lots of mediocre food.
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!
Our evening at the waterfront was very nice. The food was delicious, but the service was outstanding! We were craving for seafood and the Waterfront delivered.
Sunday brunch. Really all you could ask for. We are not drinkers but the Bloody Mary bar looked very interesting.
Casual and pleasant.
The online menu features “duck” that is no longer available. Please correct!
My second time eating here. Will return when I am in the area.
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.
We always love Water’s Edge!! The food is Amazing, the staff is friendly & the view is unforgettable!! You got to get the Mud Pie for dessert!! It is the best!!
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.
Bathroom located outside of restaurant .. Small portion scallops were great but only had 5 petite dime size cauliflower pieces
Absolutely beautiful view! The service and food was amazing! Definitely would recommend this place, and will be going back when I’m back in Charleston!
My wife's and I first time at this restaurant and we were amazed on the setup and hospitality that was offered. The food was amazing, oysters were fresh and great recommendations. My waiter Steven was very friendly and knowledgeable and I will definitely go back when I'm in town again.
Nice place for brunch . Food was good. Nice sunny porch with scenic view.
We had a great experience. The service was very good. Atmosphere was pleasant. We each had something different and all was very good. This is our third time at this restaurant and would highly recommend it.
Food was very good -- excellent. Ordered salmon and women ordered seafood platters w shrimp (delicious) and oysters (yummy). Salmon tender and very tasty. Sides good but likely short of excellent.
Great staff and great views. Would go again if I visit!
Some of the best food we have had in S.C. We love this place and the view is great. We have seen a dolphin every time we have been.
Amazing experience, thank you
It smelled musty and old. Service was very slow as well.
Beautiful location on Schem Creek.
Nice selection of Apps and Salads.
Excellent She Crab Soup and the Seafood
Paella was spot on with plenty of seafood.
Will come back soon.

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.
Great view and food that we always enjoy year after year.
Subtle changes with new owners!
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.
Food was not good and our waiter took forever and was rude. I didn’t touch my food and was not offered a refund or something else to eat.
Food was good but came out cold, the waitress fixed it.
Food was great! We got to sit with a view of the water
Nearly very good.
Front end girl needs to go to charm school! Service at the bar was wonderful! Food was over cooked!
Food was very good, very busy when we were there the wait service seemed to get overwhelmed.
