Well it's been a long time since my last visit.. a place on the waterfront with a view was on the menu for our sisters lunch today.. The Waterway Cafe has a refreshed new look and new management! And it shows.. Service was excellent! Our...server was Jessie and she was attentive and accommodating. Excellent service! The view was beautiful watching the boats going by and the bridge opening and closing.. it was a perfect day! They are adhering to all CDC guidelines including social distancing. We ordered the Fried Calamari as our appetizer and it came out piping hot and cooked perfectly! A huge portion enough to share. Delicious! I ordered the cheeseburger medium rare and it comes with a side of fries. The burger was cooked perfectly and it was delicious! We also ordered an extra side of fries which were crispy piping hot and delicious! The place was spotless, great food and service- a real tribute to the new management. I highly recommend! We will definitely be back....Thank you....More

We loved this place! It's right on the water, with plenty of outdoor tables. Great food,service & atmosphere. Large place, plenty of parking. The crabcake was the best I've ever had. The beet & goat cheese salad was delicious. Great burger too

food is mediocre at best. Nice view, not worth going. Service spotty. Not even close to being worth the price.

Had lunch with 3 friends. There was no social distancing out on the docks. When people were seated we they were only 1 ft away. Not good. I had their salmon special with sweet potato fries which was just OK. The salmon was flaky but...tasteless. I read reviews before I went & there were rave reviews about the key lime pie being the best around. NOPE. The best I've had in Palm Beach County was from Ke'e Grill in Boca Raton. I think I'll pass on this restaurant in the future. BTW, the service was not great either.More

Met friends who had lunch previous good experience. Big place, nearly empty on Wed night. Patio seating could have been nice. Interrupted frequently with sewer smells and staff dumping garbage into the intracoastal. Yeccch. Menu adequate, priced competently. Food good. Service ups and downs. Canned...beer brought in can for customer to open. 2nd glass of wine brought in disposable plastic cup and dumped in front of me into existing wine glass for a $10 glass of retail $10 bottle of chardonnay. Giant ice cream dessert served 4 generously but meager on the enticing inclusions. We are not eager to return.More

We had dinner at Waterway Cafe Sunday night. We had been there once before a few years back and new how nice the outdoor seating was. In COVID, we only eat outdoors, so we decided on Waterway. We were seated immediately outside, but we could...have eaten inside because they had the wall facing the water open. The tables are well spaced. We sat at a table on the boardwalk near the main outdoor bar. The food came quick and was delicious. My husband had blackened grouper, I had grilled Mahi and my oldest had sirloin steak. All the food on all three plates was devoured (some of my Mahi by my kid). My youngest is a chicken tender snob and she loved her food. We got a treat watching the drawbridge open and my kids fed some of their bread to the catfish over the side, There were more catfish eating that bread than I have ever seen in my life! Anyway, if you are looking for waterfront, this is the place. And the prices are reasonable.More

We were here for lunch. Ate on the deck with a great and entertaining view of the drawbridge and lots of boats. Service and food were excellent. Interior is nicely decorated. Staff were wearing masks. Tables did not appear to be socially distanced, but we...didn't find that to be an issue. We recommend this place.More
