The Water's Edge Resort is one of the most beautiful resorts on the Connecticut Shoreline and its Sunset Bar and Grill Restaurant is the perfect outdoor bar with an ocean view. My husband and I visited this summer to enjoy the beautiful weather with drinks and the sunset! We loved the seafood! The seafood platter is my favorite and the... More

We visited the Restaurant on a cool Sunny Sunday around noon time without any reservations and were informed that only brunch is available for $33.00 per person - since we did not want to spent that much - we are seniors and simply cannot eat that much, decided to not eat there, when the Host offered us 1 Plate for...

Very nice nice brunch menu but missed the essence of Thanksgiving. Seemed to lack the traditional Thanksgiving choices and food was uncharacteristically bland and tasteless and there was very little turkey. Most staff were friendly and welcoming but the carver in the main restaurant was down right rude. I would not reccomend for a holiday.

Love to visit Water's Edge for a dinner with a spectacular view of Long Island Sound. Not only great meals and specials served, but most nights there is a live band at the bar providing an additional atmospheric element.

The brunch came highly recommended by the locals. Since we were staying at the timeshare we decided to try it and were pleasantly surprised. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The food was exceptional.

We were disappointed attending Sunday Brunch. We very much liked the breakfast choices- omelets, eggs, crepes, waffles. Also create your own pasta was good. The items to make a custom salad were good too. The cut fruit choices were limited- cantaloupe, melon, and pineapple. They used to have different kinds of berries. Hot lunch items choices were ok - again... More

Good outdoor option for dining with nice band. Would recommend the lobster roll. The Sunday brunch is also great.

My wife and I wanted to have a light early dinner and see the water. She had a drink that the bartender made well. Then we ordered two burgers, bowl of clam chowder, and a side salad. The chowder came and was excellent. Then came the salad after a twenty minute wait and it was okay. The two burgers finally... More
