“Romantic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Wow! How romantic is The Waves at Cane Bay. We ate there 3 times. They have fresh daily lobster you pick out of what they just caught. The Kingfish is excellent. There Sunday brunch is great too. Matt (server) is GREAT. He is very knowledgeable about the restaurant and the food. He told us about what to do and where to go on the island. Thank you Matt!

“Beautiful Ocean/Sunset view, Great Service & Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

The Waves is a wonderful restaurant that is part of a small hotel along Route 80 in Cane Bay. If you don't pay attention you will miss it but be sure not to! It is literally at the edge of the ocean. The dining room sits just above the water. Ask for a table by the railing or if the water is calm you can actually sit at a table on a rock at the waters edge. Very romantic! As you can imagine the view is beautiful especially at sunset. Not only does this restaurant have its' location going for it the wait staff, wine list and the food are just as great. The staff is very friendly and goes out of their way to ensure you enjoy yourself and your meal. On our first visit my husband had the chowder and I had the beet salad that was served with homemade bread with olive oil for dipping, yum! Large portions and delicious. For the main course we both had a scallop, mussel pasta dish. Again the servings were large and very good. We took left overs home. We enjoyed our dinner so much we decided we would go back another night. This is unusual for us because we like to try new places but the Waves was so good. On our return trip we were greeted like old friends. When we ordered our waiter said the house salad was very large and suggested we might want to split one and he was right. I thought this was very thoughtful. For the main course we decided on the lobster. Well you can't get much fresher than picking your lobster from a trap that they pull out of the water steps from your table. The lobster was wonderful, served with a delicate lemon cream sauce over creamy risotto. Sooooo good. This time we saved room for dessert and split the chocolate torte with coconut ice cream. To die for! As you can tell we really enjoyed dining at the Waves and would go back in a heartbeat. It is one of the nicer restaurants on the island and you can't beat the freshness and the view.

“Beautiful site”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Our waiter (Aaron or Erin sp?) was great with all kinds of suggestions and genuine helpful recommendations. Food fresh kingfish and all salads, veggies, bread and desserts were delicious. The view and seaside atmosphere were very, very good. Take your wife/girlfriend for a wonderful experience.

Very good appetizers. Mahi entree was delivered to kitchen for cooking as we arrived. Couldn't have been fresher. Service was delightful. Coconut ice cream dessert equals the best we ever had.
