Good atmosphere, inside or outside dining available. Friendly staff. good food, nice variety of food. pina colada tastey, but no kick. Located on the river, including a boat dock. Nice place to watch sunset over the river.

My wife and I visit Waterway frequently and we have seen a decline in the food and service. The dolphin sandwich was not fresh and my wife's crab cake was all batter. We will go again but just a heads up. With a new complex with restaruanants going up across the waterway, we are hopeful that the Waterway Cafe will... More

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!

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!!!
