We went to the Goodspeed Opera House and were looking for a nice meal to end our day. My husband researched area restaurants and found this gem. For this caliber restaurant it is not at all expensive but certainly five star! Admittedly we have been here only once, but our meals were extraordinary, the service wonderful and the views spectacular.... More

After reading the reviews of this restaurant, I started to look other places to celebrate my birthday, but decided to take a chance. I am so happy that my family joined me in a delicious Sunday brunch. Everything was perfect from the food to the staff. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. There were so many choices of foods and... More

Too Bad the Hotel has an outdate Pet Policy that does not allow pets. Thank goodness their bartender, knows how to make the perfect Bloody Mary! Cheers!

Went for Sunday Brunch with husband on our anniversary. From our seats, we could see the glistening beach. The food was amazing. Anything you could possibly want they had and it was all very fresh, The vanilla cupcakes with a chocolate chip cookie dough center was too die for. Our service was not very good however, which could be blamed... More

We just stayed at the hotel last week. We thought we'd have a lovely dinner at the restaurant with friends we haven't seen in 2 years and have room service sent up for our children and my mom who was "babysitting". The kids were going to have "movie night" in the room - it should have been a perfect evening... More

If I could give this place zero stars! I would! We went to the Thanksgiving buffet for the first time yesterday (Nov 2013). They were heavily overbooked (1200 people from 11am-7pm), and we had to wait 45 mins for a table that we reserved. Most of the people seemed to have enjoyed the food, but if you are a purist... More

Live locally and have had brunch at Water"s Edge several times. Had always been pleased with almost everything, but not this time. My wife and daughter were with me. Were greeted and seated efficiently by the hostess who also let us select our table as there were several tables open at our reservation time, 12:30. She said we could wait... More
