Whoa... the view is fabulous. On the inter coastal and chill atmosphere makes this cafe an outstanding spot. 3 Full bar and excellent menu. I had the Gazpacho made fresh in house with the managers own recipe. I LOVED IT! If you're out on your boat or kayak just tie up at the dock and enjoy.

Waterway cafe has quite good atmosphere, its near the sea. Foods were OK. We ate fish&chips and steak wrap, they were all good but the main reason to went there was location and the ambiance.

My favorite place to relax beside the calm waters of the intracoastal Waterway. Great atmosphere and delicious lunch and dinners. This is old Florida at its best. It's a monthly must for my friends and me. If your looking to treat yourself, this is the place.

I went to Waterway Cafe for dinner with some friends. We sat outside on the patio. The restaurant seemed a little busy but we didn't notice any of that. I ordered a caeser salad with grilled chicken and anchovies. I understand that you get an up charge for the chicken but 1 dollar for a few pieces of anchovies is... More

Went to dinner here last week with a friend on the recommendation from the hotel for water view dining - well there was a view of the water and that was the best part. Both of us had the clam chowder which was good - very creamy and lots of clams. After that it went down hill - she had... More

I live down the road and am not a tourist so take this review with a grain of salt. I would personally not make a point of dining for dinner here. However, if I were a tourist this is a great spot on the water with outdoor dining. The ambiance for that can't be beat in this immediate area. This... More

I have always enjoyed the Waterway Café. The food is not top end but it is still very good and reasonably priced. The atmosphere is very nice with the ICW and boat traffic to watch while dining. The service has always been very good as well. I think any negative reviews of the Waterway should be ignored.
