My husband and I decided to celebrate our 48th Anniversary at Water’s Edge. From the moment we arrived, we were impressed with the welcoming greeting, the great food and the ambience of a beautiful sunset with a violinist making the evening very special. We want...to thank Lisa for all of her excellent recommendations and the owner for the complimentary bottle of champagne and his passion to provide the best experience possible.More

We just left the Waters Edge restaurant and I cannot stress how fantastic it was. Roy, the owner, made our experience unforgettable. Prior to our arrival on the island, I reached out to a few restaurants to see if they could accommodate a 5 year...old palate that is allergic to gluten (Celiac). Immediately, Roy called me and explained their safety measures and how he could give us a night out without concern for our daughters safety. He even made sure the food she enjoys would be available for when we arrived by ordering even more gluten free options.. Not only that, he later called to see when we were coming so that he would be present to personally take care of us. Side note--he takes care of everyone. He would go table to table checking in on everyone to make sure they were enjoying their evening. Top notch service and genuinely a kind soul. When we arrived, he introduced himself and immediately we felt comfortable and knew we were in good hands. The food was amazing, atmosphere and view outstanding (right in the beach, and the staff was gracious and attentive. Never have we had an experience like this--anywhere. Lisa, thank you for taking care of us. Your service was fantastic and we owe you a tremendous amount of gratitude. You were attentive and kind throughout our time there. Thank you. Roy, you made our night a special one and we cannot thank you enough. You have a kind heart and it is obvious you care about every customer. You made a 5 year old so happy as many of us take eating out for granted- something my daughter doesn't get to do often. Thank you for the unforgettable night and everlasting memories. For those of you coming to the island, the Waters Edge will not disappoint. It's beautiful, delicious, and far and away the best service we've e we had.More

So happy we decided to try this restaurant! From the great (and speedy!) communication with Roy the owner while initially making and having to modify our reservations, to the wonderful and attentive service from Nicole our waitress, to the delicious meal, we could not be...happier! The menu has a great selection, from apps, to entrees, cocktails to dessert! Highly recommend for a night out or a family dinner. It was delicious, portions were generous, and the staff really goes above and beyond to make it feel special for you. We will certainly be returning!More

I got ceviche for my meal, and it was good but not great compared to other places. The desserts were excellent (get the tiramisu). The seating was also really cool. We were on the sand and could see the ocean. There was live music and...people were up dancing and it was fun atmosphere for couples, families, anyone really.More
