We had fish and white wine. The service was great, food was really good. We had dinner outside with a view on the intercoastal. Nice.

We googled waterside patio and this came up. Because of all the good reviews we decided to give it a try. Both my husband and I were most impressed with our waiter, Kyle. He was very personable, very good with the customers, pleasant, funny, it was a nice atmosphere. I don't want to comment too much on my meal as... More

we enjoy bringing visitors to the tiki bar outside the restaurant - good happy hour and bar menu and so relaxing for a Friday after work stop.

Went to the Southside Tiki side for lunch on a Friday at 1:00. There were 2 tables seated when we came and 2 other tables sat at the same time we did. Took the server a few minutes to come over and she didn't seem too happy. She took our order shortly after and the food came out relatively quickly.... More

Great no frill restaurant with a lovely view. Food is standard American fare - nothing special but it is consistent. Great reggae band on Sunday evenings. Fun to kick back and watch the boats go by.

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!
