Comfortable outdoor seating

Good place for casual lunch or dinner in the Tiki Bar area. The Cod served without any embellishment is excellent. Reasonably priced appetizers but selection of tap beer very limited. The advertized tap beer at Happy Hour prices was not available for more than 2 weeks. Good service.

very busy, good food and service, but extremely noisy. Tables very close together. Probably will not return since there are so many other choices.

Mediocre food--and not very clean! View was nice. Service was good. Very busy, which must have been because of the view, not the food.

What a beautiful setting right on the inter coastal. Had a lobster salad and my husband had the fresh fish sandwich. Both were as good as one would get back in Massachusetts. We will definitely be back.

I have been going to Waterway for over 20 years. Love this place! The food is good and the atmosphere is great. It is so relaxing to sit on the water and watch the boats. Service has always been good. They have a good menu and a good Happy Hour menu as well. Nothing like winding down at the end... More
