We’ve been to Backwater’s for dinner a couple of times in the past month. The food has been consistently good. The service has been inconsistent but they try hard. We’ve not seen the same server twice yet. We really enjoy the patio and outdoor dining, and the extensive menu offers seafood dishes that are great as well as steak and prime rib entrées. I should mention that we really appreciate being able to make reservations online and they honor them promptly on every visit.

Tucked in the corner of strip right on the water. Great view and good cozy establishment. Prices are very competitive and lots of choices in the menu.

Backwaters Waterfront Grill's menu is what caught our eyes...On Saturday night the special of slow roasted Prime Rib made my guy's heart sing as it was delicious...I had the fall of the bone baby back ribs that were sensationally delicious too!!! We started with coconut fried shrimp served with thai dipping sauce and the bacon wrapped scallops that melted in your mouth...
We had melt a couple earlier in the day that told us to get the ribs as my guy will want some too...Great advise, we left with happy, full stomachs and food for another day

We went here for a meal while staying locally. The food was fantastic and the drinks were very reasonably priced.

My wife had the fillet steak and I had a fisherman's platter. Both meals were lovely. The staff were attentive and looked after us very well.

If you are in the area and looking for a great meal in great surroundings look no further.

Oh and the choclolate cake is fantastic too!
