Had dinner here on the patio this weekend and it was great. The Mediterranean penne is a must and the view at sunset is beautiful!

Had a great lunch with my family. Food was fantastic. And owner went way out of the way to look after my 7 year old. View was amazing. Would highly recommend we will be back.

Having our dinner right on the canal as boats go by was a nice difference. We all had the Pickeral, very good along with mashed and cob of corn. Disappointment was no french frys on dinner menu.

Good morning Norman When I was at the Waters Edge the only plate I had that came through cold was a salad. Not sure what the issue is with your wine glass. Did you ask them when you were there? I did not have wine... More
