Outstanding Lunch and Service

We had a coupon for Lakefront Restaruant which was in the Hilton at University Place that we wanted to try. Drove over after Church and found that it was now Edgewater Bar & Grill. No big deal if we could not use the coupon. The place is spacious and well appointed and in some respects, reminds... read more

Tasty salads. Excellent and friendly service. Great view in nice weather. Good value, especially for a restaurant in a nice hotel. We will eat there again when staying in the Hilton.

The remodeling is done except for the adjacent bathrooms which are closed. The restaurant was just not appropriately staffed for a full hotel. The waiters (2 for the whole restaurant and bar area) were frazzled and there was a long wait for food to arrive (and we visited after peak lunch dining). Pizza was good. Salads were OK. This is...

My wife and I had dinner and got a tiny view of the water below...there was a wrestling expo of sorts going on, some of the folks came into the "lobby" as the restaurant was being remodeled...and were loud. One complained, "this is your ONLY bar?!"...had to send our steak back because it was not blackened as asked. Wait staff... More

I do apologize for condition of the restaurant during your visit. We are re-open, few more touches to the bar and restaurant area, but we are fully up and running with a new menu and beautifully renovated bar area. The last few detailed items for the restaurant will be complete by the end of this week and we are proud... More

The restaurant is in the lobby of the Hilton Hotel. Kinda felt odd just sitting out there. The food was very good. We split the the stuffed hushpuppies appetizer. It was to die for, we loved it. The crab cake sandwich was also good. Our waiter was excellent and very helpful.

Nacho App wasn't very good. I did eat breakfast, in which was cold, service was slow. Not sure of her name, long dark hair that should have been pulled back? There was a Spanish gentleman that was great. He got me what I needed!

After a long drive this was a welcome restaurant. Tucked into the Hilton Hotel the food and service were both good if not exciting. Good solid southern cooking with the usual Hilton specials of hamburgers and steak.
