We wanted seafood near Lorton so we tried Waters Edge. Located on the river next to a cement plant, we didn't expect nice views, but the fall foliage view was great out on the open deck. The atmosphere is more like a huge bar than a restaurant, but it wasn't too noisy at 6:15 on Friday night, though more smokey than we would have preferred with our small grandchildren.
We started with a delicious calamari appetizer. Our party had catfish plates and the $16.95 all you can eat crab specials. The crabs were flavorful and delicious, but served with no sides. My husband and son had the catfish and did not like the thick runny pieces they were served, but did enjoy their onion rings. They prefer the thinner, crispier, Southern style catfish. We were able to get a second helping of crabs, but as we were checking out shortly after 7PM the waitress said they had run out of crab, so ask before you order.
We may visit again, but would only do so without small children for lunch or early evening as it seems that the volume of the music definitely increased at 7PM. They only have 3 high chairs and 2 had broken lap belts. We also did not care for the wine, beer and drinks being served in solo cups. The parking lot does not have a lot of light after dark so be observant when you park.
