I arrived to the Edgewater Bar & Grille for lunch and was immediately greeted by a friendly staff member who gave me the option of any table I wanted since I was the only one there! The waiter was very friendly and provided suggestions of what to order off the menu. I mentioned how hungry I was and he even... More

This is not the very best of options for vegetarians if you are eating here multiple times, but the quality of the food, and the service we received was great, all the three times we ate here. Group sizes ranged from 3 to 11, and the waitress kept up with ease. Fried green tomatoes are to die for. The fried... More

Better than most hotel restaurants. Some, maybe all, of the dishes are prepared from scratch (as opposed to the usual Sysco fare). However, avoid the barbecue sandwich.

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 me of the Hyatt... 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...
