Average rating because the pork tenderloins are really good here and so are the wraps...when you can get someone to wait on you. Sundays they have a bloody mary bar that is awesome too, when you can get service. If I owned this place I would concentrate on service instead of peppering my menu with new things...the customers that loved... More

Nice location, extensive selection on the menu. Good range of beers, the personal size pizza was more than enough for any appetite, had the vegetarian but optioned it up with pepperoni and canadian bacon, went down well with a Fat Tire. Right next door to Brandy's but a lot less pricey, real value for money here.

We found this restaurant using Trip Advisor and wasn't disappointed. Becky the manager greeted us and she is an absolute treasure. We had the Rangoon appetizer and the Steak sandwich. Both were excellent! The sandwich was cooked perfectly and the grilled peppers and onions were awesome! Recommend this location if you are in the area. Will definitely come back.

Waste of time. Took over 45 min. to get are food and there was only maybe 15 ppl in the whole place. The Guinness burger was burnt gf got chicken ranch wrap was big as your head but mostly lettuce. Might be a good place for drinks but we didn't stay to find out.

We stopped here for lunch. The menu is large and the things that we ordered were good! I love the wood tables in the restaurant. There is also outdoor seating. I took pictures of the food we ordered! They should be posted when this post is made. We can't wait to go back and try something else on the menu!

Waterstreet has a fine selection of beers on tap as well as inexpensive and delicious food. Occasionally they have live entertainment too!

We use to frequent this place but noticed that the service has seriously declined in the last year. High turnover of staff and it seemed like we never had same waitress twice. Sometimes we would be one of maybe 3 tables during the week. Bar was normally busy. I think they hired a new manager and we will wait to... More

The Waterstreet Pub was recommended to us by the mayor of Peru and it held up to the recommendation. We really enjoyed the decor and the food was delicious. The tenderloin sandwich lived up to the billing...will definitely go back again!

Great service! All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. There was a variety of food on the menu for our family of 5 to all get what we wanted.
