We were staying at Water's Edge, and decided at the last moment to have Sunday Brunch there. Make your reservations early, because there is a reason this brunch sells out every weekend. For $33 we had an amazing brunch. We sat on the deck, and were blown away by the food and the view. We thought it was an amazing... More

We went to this restaurant's Mother's Day Brunch buffet and it was excellent. Highly recommended! They have a brunch buffet every Sunday, but the Mother's Day brunch buffet is supposedly their best one of the year. I can't say enough good things about it! The food was incredible and the service was top notch. Reservations for this event were needed... More

Sunday brunch was a delight on Sunday. Must be a new chef. Salmon, English fish and chips, pasta,crepe, all a delight. Not a meat eater, but our friends loved the roast beef and lamb.

We enjoyed a very nice dinner for 2 here. It was made even more enjoyable by having a table by the window to enjoy water view dining. Christa, our server provided us with a very nice dining experience. 2 dinners, 2 salads and a bottle of wine was $121 pre tip. The restaurant was the best part of the resort.

Even with the rain pouring outside, this was a delightful experience. We had steak and scallops and both were perfect. The cheesecake was just ok but the Cosmos were outstanding as was the fried calamari.

Menu was not ambitious but it was tasty. Raw oysters were so delicious! Eating dinner overlooking the ocean a great romantic evening. Staff were friendly and attentive. I am gluten free and it was easily accommodated here.

I was here on a business trip, dining with ten others over the course of two days. The staff was very friendly. The food was very good as well. I would really recommend the Arugula salad. Much better than average. The restaurant has great views of the ocean. It is definitely upscale, and they were also doing a significant amount... More

The Brunch at Waters Edge has a variety of choices from a carving station to a salad bar. The waitstaff during brunch was very attentive, and could not do enough for us. The food had top quality taste, and much of the food tasted homemade. The one complaint I have is Water's Edge was piloting a make your own Bloody... More
