We found this restaurant by fluke. But it was yummy. The steamers sauce was heavenly. Jonathon our waiter was so friendly, nice and great at his job. He Was thorough with explaining all the dishes, we found him to be a true joy. All the food we ate was so delicious and more food than we could eat. Prices were good. Can't wait to go back. Probably one of the best meals I have ever had.

When you spend $75+ for a romantic dinner for two, you expect delicious food and ambiance. The Waterside only provided one of the two. Our steak tacos were completely fatty...there was no meat worth eating in either of them. Our pork was supposed to have an Asian taste profile, but instead tasted like straight pepper. Also, it was quite fatty, as well. Our waitress was great, and the wines were good, but I wouldn't go back here...for food anyways.

Well it is summer time in these parts and the Chief is trying to find different locals to visitors to our area. Are you listening Friends of the Dallas Cowboys?
This is a relaxing waterside haunt just what you need after a hard day of watching the Boys practice. Located 5 miles from the practice field ( take Gonzales to Harbor veer right before the bridge and follow the signs.
The food and drink are excellent. The patio is dog friendly. Try the spare ribs or duck tacos.
Hope to see you there!

Make a reservation on their website for a Sunday at 10 and enjoy their flowing bloody orange mimosas. Plan to have a relaxing breakfast overlooking the little boats docked at the marina, enjoy the live music, and walk off your wonderfully-prepared meal at the Farmers Market before heading home. What a great Sunday agenda! I'll be coming back for more!
