We had lunch here and the place was beautifully decorated and the service was excellent. The staff was nice and attentative. I had a salmon BLT on a brioche bun. The salmon tasted just OK. They had a couple of decent beers. I wished I had tried the wings.

We had several members of the staff come by to check on us, but it took over 1 hour to get French onion soup and Caesar salads. Before we had... More

The Waterside has been a Lake Oconee favorite for many years. It was closed over a year ago. Now reopened with an expanded bar area, we were all excited. The menu is nice, the service getting on track but it still has one significant negative - the interior is all hard surfaces and the place is very noisy. Noisy to... More

We had a very nice lunch with great views of the lake. Salad was excellent, burger was very good. As always the Chef came out and ask if everything was to our liking. We viewed the new dinner menus and it looked great. Only been open a week but the crowds are back. Sorry Chef Schmidt is gone!

You get what you pay for at this upscale place. The lake view is magnificent, the tables offer great views yet give you the feeling of being catered exclusively to.
