Lake view restaurant.

Used to really enjoy eating here but recently the service has been slow and the food not up to the usual standard. Great location. parking not easy. Beautiful lake views.

My wife and friends had dinner at this restaurant just last night-- lately it has become one of our favourites. Although we had no reservation --they were quick to find us a table for four with our usual lakefront view. We experienced excellent service again from a friendly waiter who has served us before --Adam. He really moves quickly and... More

This location has a delicious brunch service on Sunday that is well worth the money. The selection of foods, beautiful presentation and relaxed atmosphere makes it a great meeting place for friends on a lazy Sunday morning.

We arrived in Burlington this morning, a little jetlagged. We headed off to the Waterstreet Cooker to enjoy their brunch, and to try to keep going until we could check into our hotel. So glad we did! The food was amazing - husband loved his prime rib (never had this for breakfast before!) and the waffles were amazing. So much... More

We came here and despite the many reviews stating its going downhill had a good experience! The service was great and the food was too. The short ribs were tasty and the crab cakes were yummy. Prices are a little higher than they should be however food was worth it on this particular visit.

I celebrated my birthday this past weekend during Taste of Burlington . We had another excellent meal at the Water Street Cooker, we had one of the best tables in the house with the fantastic view of the lake. Special thanks to Chris our Server who was absolutely the best. Thanks again for a truly wonderful evening!

Brunch at WSC used to be decent. Went this morning and came away from the experience bitterly disappointed. Oysters were definitely not fresh and improperly shucked. Eggs benedict were overcooked. Blueberries from the waffle station were frozen and gross. Hot item choices were sparse. Desert station also had few items. For $34 I'd expect ALOT more. For roughly $10 more... More

Six of us went to the 12:30 Brunch and none of us was happy with the selections. One of our party experienced "stomach" problems later in the day. I did not partake of the meal because as a semi-vegetarian there really was nothing for me. I don't eat fish. The 2 soup choices were fish based. None of the salads... More

This place has gone completely down hill over the last year and staff are completely RUDE!! Arrived for brunch with my boyfriend - I had just returned from vacation. Arrived at 11am - chatted to 11:20 when the waitress rudely came up to say "about your chatting, we're busy and have more reservations at 12:30". Really? there were many empty... More

Our waitress was amazing, her personality was as big as she was. Ceasar salad was grossly over dressed and the taste was just blah. Roast beef very fatty, mashed potatoes were tasty but all food on the plate was barely warm. However, the main reason we won't be coming back is the noise of the place. Have you thought about...
