Good location, good food, good service. Nice view of the water and the Ferry. Sat inside and watched the sea gulls pick food off plates on the patio.

Probably the best restaurant food the 3 of us have ever eaten, anywhere!!!! Can't believe the quality of the food - so fresh, so flavour full, excellent presentation and excellent services. Will be returning again and again!!!!

We ate here once before taking the ferry to Newfoundland and on the way back. Both times the food was excellent. The real reason we came back the second time was because the roasted potatoes (the side dish) are to die for. Not sure how they make them but I could eat a meal of them. The pan haddock special...

It was a Saturday evening and they only had 2 waitresses on! The poor girls were rushed off their feet and, although there were empty tables, we had to wait for about 45 minutes to be seated! Once seated we were served fairly quickly. The food was OK but far too many fries, most of which we left. The mussels... More

The Lobster Pound restaurant always books early, so I went to Waterside and was so pleasantly surprised! Lobster was perfect as well as the other food and service with a smile! Don't bother with Lobster Pound - go Waterside!!

Food OK, service OK nevertheless, very crowded. Very nearby Lobster Pound (fully booked) and Black Spoon (closed for private event) were our 1st 2 choices; Waterside was a distant 3rd choice.

I was with a table of four when we walked in and was immediately granted a table with a beautiful view of the water! The waitress was attentive, and very friendly with a good sense of humour. I ordered the baked chicken penne, and the alfredo sauce was absolutely out of this world! The other 3 people had maple rum... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the food and the wine. The pasta was great and the service attentive. We sort of found it by accident - but were glad we did!
