Get a table on the outside deck and watch the boats as you enjoy a delicious lunch. Don't miss the truffle fries. Great quesadillas and coconut shrimp are also good choices.

We go at least monthly when the Waterline Fishing Club meets and periodically since we live near by. They are great hosts. The burgers are great with a cold beer, I like the Ahi Tuna appetizer.

Popped into the Waterside Grill last evening. Noticed it had been shut the previous week for renovations. As we had dined there last year we were pleased to find that the menu choice was excellent along with the service. Cannot fault the establishment.
