The server was very sweet, but she could not make up for the fact that the bar and the kitchen were sooooo slow. I had the stuffed chicken, the chicken was tough, the vegetables were over cooked. My husband had the "grilled" fish and chips. They panko bread the fish and somehow make it very crisp on the grill. That was good. There is a nice view of the Alsea bridge. The waitress offered us free dessert to compensate us and that was a nice touch.

We had a very good burger, although the menu was rather limited. What really stood out for us, though, was the excellent service provided by our server, Shanti. She was professional, helpful, and extremely kind, and made our evening out at Waves.

This is a hidden treasure! Located at the end of Bayshore Drive, with the Alsi Resort, it serves some great food, and the atmosphere is quiet when we've been there earlier in the evening. We went there for our 20th anniversary, and the staff bent over backwards to please us. Even the chef came out at one point and congratulated us. My husband is allergic to sulfites in food, and the server took great care to help him select food that he could eat. The food is excellent, but I wish they had a smaller selection of fried seafood and a larger variety of fresh. I had been told by others that the food at Waves was bad, but that was some time ago and I think they have improved greatly. I love it for the intimate atmosphere we've experienced.

Decided to try this place as I hadn't been to this location in years. As I knew from previous visits to the location it offers nice bay/bridge views. The new management has definitely changed the menu and the service. The menu was relatively large and well varied. The prices were very good. We had excellent service and a very enjoyable meal with good quality food and drinks. We will definitely be back.

Went there for a late night drink and an appetizer.

Service was acceptable.

Great calamari and oysters.

And a good view of a high tide.
