Nice location close to the water! You should sit outside weather permitting. The food was good. Nice portions. Service was good. The band was set to play, but they didn't start playing by the time we left. Definitely left full of the shrimp scampi!

My parents took me and my wife out on the boat for a day of fishing and on the way back we stopped at the Waterway Cafe. We were able to dock right up to the ouside bar and sit right on the water by the boat. It was really a cool placew and quite busy on a Sunday, a... More

A very nice and very large restaurant! Plenty of outdoor seating and indoor. We sat outside near the water what a lovely view! Our server Jason was very friendly! I had the special...tuna over a salad! It was very reasonably priced and huge! My friend and I determined we will be back and will bring along the husbands!

We visited Waterway Cafe for lunch on a very hot August day. Sitting on the deck, watching the boats on the Intercoastal was wonderful. The salads and sandwiches we ordered were delicious and the service was also very good. We've been to this restaurant a few other times and it is consistently good and a beautiful, waterside setting!

This restaurant is perfect whether you're going out for just a drink or a full dinner. The view is just perfect. As you're having your dinner or your drink you can watch the beautiful boats pass by. The food was good for a casual resturant.

Our party of four were all pleasantly surprised by the variety and quality of items offered. Also surprised by the small turnout for such a reasonable price. Will definitely be back!

I ordered the twilight coconut almond grouper & my husband ordered top sirloin. Disgusting!!! The salad tasted like a prepackaged salad, bottled tasting dressing, frozen packaged tasting veggies, frozen packaged tasting fish, terrible mashed potatoes & the... More

I just had 27 people here for a twilight celebration, and it couldn't be more perfect. Assistant General Manager Angie Mumford did a wonderful job setting everything up and service was very professional. Hors d'oeuvres included Swedish meatballs, which were among the best I've had; mushrooms stuffed with crabmeat; cheese platter and crudites. All, on a white cloth-covered table, were... More

Everyone LOVES to bash some of these Restaurants on this site but, I think you have to consider the volume they turn over. You're just not going to please everyone. On this eatery : less then 4% on this site have given it a "terrible" review and reading them (out-of-entertainment) ~most ~ just aren't fair. I used to live in... More

We had a group of 12. Everyone was happy with their choice for dinner. Everything from fish & chips, boiled shrimp, chicken wings to grouper dinner. Desserts were awesome! Waitress was very efficient but could have been a bit more friendly. No smiles! They have inside seating as well outside on the deck. Nice view of the intercoastal waterway -... More
