Fries

Veggie burger and fries were very average. All food comes served in Chinese bamboo steamers with lids, so it keeps the food from blowing away and hides the remnants from the other pool side goers because the cabana boys don't clear them away in a timely fashion. The drinks were overpriced and not... read more

we were staying near by at long key where there is nowhere to eat. We had passed Duck Bay on the way down from Key West and thought it looked interesting. On looking on trip advisor we could see there were 4 restaurants there and decided on Waters Edge. We had an address but did not use google maps. We... More

The drinks were overpriced and not in any way spectacular.

Where you drink and eat at the pool. Much better than usual and reasonably priced for poolside places.

We had a delicious seafood platter..so much food we could not finish. The homemade banana bread brought to each table was wonderful also...probably why we could not finish dinner!

The setting is perfect. You may have trouble finding a table in the shade on a busy day, and the only way to get the next available one is to sit at the bar and watch until one clears and then rush to get there before someone else does. Or give up and order the same food from the bar.... More

You could eat a tiki bar or by the water edge two separate dining experiences. Same menu and everything we ate was great!

So sad to serve such bad food in such a pretty location. What a waste! Hopefully the management of this restaurant and Hawks Cay in general will wake up and see that people will not return for overpriced, bad quality food

This was our first night at the resort and we were looking forward to eating on the waterfront. Instead we get a table in the dark next to a noisy bar and very average food / service. Apparently a wedding took priority over the normal table locations ....this experience put us of eating here for the rest of the holiday!

Maybe we hit this restaurant on a good day but my experience does not seem to match up with the some of the other reviewers. I dined there with a 10 month old and 2 other ladies. We ordered mahi sandwiches for lunch. The fish was fresh and cooked perfect. The basil pesto was a nice addition to the sandwich.... More
