We had avoided this place this summer because of a bad experience a couple summers ago and boy do we regret that now. The menu has something for everyone, the food is homemade and delicious ! We went back again a week later and regret we had not tried it earlier in the season as it is a seasonal restaurant... More

A great spacious and modern decor with harbour view and a menu that is exquisitely presented and extremely tasty. It was delightful to entertain friends from away who were very impressed with the culinary skill of the chef. Great job, Juana Moreland

We needed a place to catch a quick lunch while waiting for the ferry to NL and we decided to give the Waterside a try. It is located, appropriately enough, on the waterside and has a nice view of the harbour. The decorating in inside is nothing fancy, but appropriate. Service was decent, food was decent. It's not a go-out-of-your-way... More

After seeing line ups at other establishments in town, we decided to wait it out at the Waterside Restaurant. None of the staff even acknowledged our presence for 20 minutes, at which point we were seated, but never actually greeted. The rest of the evening followed the same trend. Our server avoided eye contact when passing our table and forgot... More

This place wasn't bad, but has nothing to recommend it. It is a typical waterfront seafood restaurant with a totally predictable menu.

We had a nice evening meal here and very much enjoyed getting to watch the semitrailers loading onto the Newfoundland Ferry. Fish & chips were good, seafood chowder excellent, service quite good as well. Maybe Black Spoon has trendier or better food but they don't have the view!

The Waterside is very convenient to the Marine Atlantic Ferry dock. Maybe 200 yards at best. It appeared to be a coffee shop from the outside. Inside the booths and tables were crowded into one rather noisy main room and that reinforced our first opinion. Once our orders were delivered that was all forgotten. But, our dinners were excellent. Seafood... More
