We visited on a Monday night for dinner. We tried the Crab Bruschetta as an appetizer, hoping it would be good; it was bland with very little flavor. I had the seafood pasta, and it was OK, but nothing to write home about. My wife had the shrimp scampi and said it too was bland. With a drink each and... More

Friends recommended stopping here for lunch. We sat outside at the bar. It was a warm afternoon and the view is really nice. The barmaid was attentive and we did not wait for anything. And she made a great Bloody Mary!! The beer selection was good. Try the crab fritters! Excellent.

It seems that because of the wonderful location of this restaurant, there is a feeling that is unnecessary to paint the peeling railing paint. A fresh coat might have enhanced our view of the setting sun while we enjoyed some quite good food on the deck overlooking Shem Creek.Our dozen oysters were lovely and briny and the seafood paella with...

We had lunch here about a year ago and it was so-so, but our neighbors invited us for dinner and we all enjoyed our food. The decor needs updating though.

My family and I had an amazing brunch here. The Bloody Mary bar was treat, too! Our service was good, the vegetable omelet was so tasty, and the view was beautiful.

There are three dining options at Water's Edge. It was a balmy evening, so we chose to sit outside on the terrace. It was fun to watch the boats go by, the partyers across the creek, and we even saw a dolphin. The food and service were excellent. I had never had Shrimp and grits, so I don't know whether... More

Had high expectations for Water's Edge and the atmosphere did not disappoint. The service and food were a bit of a disappointment. I had the Seafood Paella ~ it was good, but not the best. My husband ordered the Grilled Grouper ~ again, it was good, but not great. He said it was somewhat over cooked. The others at our... More
