Used to go here a lot before kids but haven't been to in quite awhile (8+ years). Was in area so decided to stop in for dinner and it was just as I remembered it. The place is nicely decorated and you get that feeling you're on vacation. The menu has a decent selection of food for all and is reasonably priced.

We started with the calamari appetizer which we remembered from previously and it was fantastic. Both wife and I had entrees from specials and both were extremely tasty with good portions. Note, all entrees come with 2 sides plus you get a sizeable bread basket for table. Drinks were reasonably priced, service was decent and restaurant was kid friendly.

Overall a very pleasant and enjoyable dinner. Although it is a little far from house, our kids asked if we could come back some time. Sounds like a good idea to me!

This is a very cute restaurant and I was really looking forward to having a great seafood dinner there with my cousins. The server was very personable and patient with taking our orders. Everyone had their wonderful house salad with toasted almonds...delicious!!! Then it went downhill. I tried to break off a piece of fish with my fork and found it wouldn't go through. Used my fork and knife and noticed how tough it was. To make a long story short, all of the items on my sampler plate were overcooked and dry. One by one the other ladies said the same thing and we agreed that this will be our last visit to Waves. This was a big disappointment!

Well we had a GREAT time and the food was good. However, I ordered the All you can Eat Perch with a side of BBQ instead of tarter. When the server brought the food she brought the tarter sauce. Not a big deal this happens every where. I reminded her that I needed the BBQ which she brought right away. Then when the BILL came there was an extra charge for the BBQ sauce.... This is one of the many ways that restaurants are working on their PROFIT Margin. Also, got up charged on the choice of soup I selected. So overall my inexpensive dinner turned out not to really be that. Won't Go Back to This Resturant

I have been here several times and each time it seems the quality of food is worse, but I keep coming back because I love the atmosphere. The staff is very friendly, so no complaints there. I don't know what has happened, but, unfortunately I will not be going back.

4 friends and I had dinner here last week and all thought it was a good choice. The wait staff was very accommodating, especially to the one person in our party with a severe allergy to food dye and almonds, ensuring that her dinner was cooked in separate pots and no sauces with food dyes were anywhere near her meal. Someone came to our table to greet us immediately upon arrival and gave us vouchers for free appetizers for next time we came. Our food. Notices were all well cooked and presented and very tasty. Our only complaint was that it was too cold but a quick trip to our cars to get sweaters helped that.
