The view & outdoor eating areas are a great bonus to the inside area with band. Lots of people dancing here! The waitstaff is excellent, very friendly. Food is good. Sit outside & watch the drawbridge go up & down.

We had a delicious dinner at the Waterway Café. The meals were reasonably priced at "Twilight Specials". (Before 5:30 pm) I had a Coconut and Almond crusted Grouper meal and my husband had the Seafood Pasta. Both meals were excellent.

A great location at the PGA drawbridge for both auto and boat access. The twilight menu is a salad, main course, and a dessert. The Almond crusted grouper was fried but stayed very tasty and was not overdone. The blackened salmon was firm and moist, and most of all flavorful. Service was good overall but a bit slow to refill... More

Very good food, went back a second time for dinner. Good selection of seafood and sandwiches. Relaxing to sit back and watch the boat traffic.

When you read the title of my review its actually not a reflection of the Waterway Cafe. Every year I come to Jupiter to visit my old friends. After they pick me up at West Palm Beach Airport we head over to the Tiki Bar in West Palm and have lunch. Well this year I'm told they tore down the... More

Great for drinks by the water. Food, not so much. It took forever and was usually bland, I had the chicken quesadilla & filet mignon, both lacked flavour and interest, however the waiter was happy to drown us with drinks so it didn't turn out too badly.

We have been there for the first time ever to try this place out. It was 5 minutes away from my house. Only thing good about this restaurant is just water view. We were charged $10 Coverage fee to just enter into the restaurant. Never seen it in my life. No greeting no welcoming, the music was very loud. Felt... More
