Sunday Brunch

Very average brunch. Not particularly worth the price. They really push their bloody marys and mimosas.

just came from sitting at the outside bar. First,the hostess could barely look up to direct us to the outside bar. When we got there, we sat at the bar which was filthy. The bartender finally came over and cleaned it. It took about about 15 minutes for us to ask if we coudl order food. We knew our food... More

Dinner took 3 hours and the messed up more than half of our orders. We did have a large group (12 people) but this is an event Venue you would figure they could handle it. The food was not great and the risotto was way under cooked and still crunchy.

This is by far the most unorganized operation for a brunch on a Father's Day! A room full of people waiting to be sat- host is being told not to check anyone in by Paula (floor supervisor). Guests asking when they can be sat- being told that they can't until the entrees are out- you are now late after the... More

Dinner reservations 8PM. Half-ful, very noisy (birthday party). Beautiful setting, Ask for a window seat, especially around sunset. Formal but friendly staff, helpful. Menu heavy on seafood. Mt appertizer, Tempura Zucchini Blossoms, hot, crisp, not greasy, but they tasted like someone spilled the salt shaker in the batter. My mouth burned from all the salt (like a salt bagel). Could...

Enjoyed dinner here with friends during a weekend stay. Service was very good and the I thought the food was delicious. We were on the patio level, in a quiet area with a large table to fit our party of 6, near the window. Everyone at the table thoroughly enjoyed their meals. Some had seafood and said it was delicious.... More

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
