We made reservations in advance and asked to be outside, but it was very windy, so they put us in the back area with windows on 2 sides. It was very nice and quiet. Food was great. Server did great job. There were 6 of us ladies celebrating a birthday.

We had hopeful expectations this restaurant would fulfill our dining experience since we were celebrating our 47th wedding anniversary. The place was pretty much empty ...some people at the bar and one table outside. The bartender said just sit anywhere so we found a place to sit.
The waiter was funny and helped us relax a bit before ordering a martini and a cab - both very good.
We each then ordered the 13oz Rib-eye steak and GOT SOMETHING ELSE...(we both eat allot of rib-eye). The steak was at best a sirloin tip and was from 1/4" to 1/2" thick... lots of gristle and fat - I kid you not. To make things worse, it laid on top of our mashed potatoes that quickly turned to a soupy sloppy mess!
Being our anniversary, we finished eating, paid our bill and left very bummed out.

Went there to celebrate my wife's birthday. It was easy to book online. Great location with engaging harbor views. Loved dining outside. Lunch was excellent. The service was exceptional. Worth the hours drive to dine there.

A picture perfect setting was had on the dockside patio on Sunday evening, matched by an excellent meal, nice pours of spirits, and a wonderful wait staff. The live music ranged from Gary & the Pacemakers to the Moody Blues. Wow - looking forward to next Saturday evening on the dockside patio again.

I actually ate twice at the Waterside over the weekend. Friday night group of us met there for dinner. The wine choices we excellent and the dinner options even better. Sunday I went for brunch with a smaller group. The crab Benedict was amazing. The bottomless Mimosas were delicious!
I definitely will go back again!

Excellent evening! We were greeted by a sweet Labrador at the door. We reserved a table for 5 and got seated right away on the patio. We grabbed a game of Uno and played while we listened to great local music. The food was delicious. I highly recommend this place.

We had a table reserved for us so we didn't have to wait and that was nice. However the table was against the wall that was only about 4 feet wide so we did not have a view of the marina like every other table in the place did. This was part of the reason for going there. The filet was really good. The burger had a strong cheese on it and I love cheese, but I was actually trying to scrape it off because that was all I could taste. It took away from the dish. The service was good. We were along the main walkway through the place so a lot people were hitting our chairs with their arms. Maybe that table should be removed from that area to avoid this. Would go again but sit on the patio, that would be worth the wait.

It was one of the most unprofessional,horrible dinning experiences I have ever had I've never felt discriminate against but this time I did it just seemed weird that 2 couples came after us and got their food and drinks before we us long story short we got there at 6:57 pm left the restaurant at 7:50 without eating DON'T GO TO THIS PLACE IF YOU LOOK DIFFERENT.

I have been here several times before and had very good luck however this time the service was incredibly slow and the food was okay but not great. Maybe there was some sort of problem that night but I'm glad that this wasn't my first time or I wouldn't be returning.

What's wrong with the owner?
We've been there 4-5 times and each time the owner acts like he's never seen us before and always tries to give us the worst table in the place. Beautiful restaurant, with amazing views, but I'd rather give my money to someone who isn't so arrogant.

Great meal and night. Isn't time trying this place and it was our anniversary. everything was tasty and well prepared... no food in a bag here... you could tell our dinner was made by a chef. Total cost was comparable to chain restaurant but the quality was far better. we will be back for sure.
WONDERFUL MOTHER'S DAY BRUNCH!
The family came up from the San Fernando Valley for Mother's Day. We started with really good blood orange Mimosas and the most amazing Spicy Bloody Mary's I have ever seen. Most of us had the Crab Benedict. Some said it was the best they had every had. One son had the Breakfast Sandwich and loved everything about it. Both sons are musicians and they thought the singer was really great. We will definitely be back.
My wife and I drove well over 79 miles, each way, to enjoy Mother's Day Brunch at the Waterside. As usual, the restaurant is always outstanding and our favorite choice above all others...anywhere! We come there as often as we can because the food, service, ambiance, warmth, menu variety, and wide range of refreshment items is not to be found anywhere else. The pricing is affordable too. You're doing a great job! Definitely keep it up!
Easter Brunch - Excellent food and beautiful view
The food during Easter Brunch was excellent, and the view of the Channel Islands Harbor was beautiful. Service was very good, although the seating was a bit tight between tables, which were a little closer together than I would have normally liked (that was probably the only downside of the experience). All in all, a wonderful experience for Easter Brunch that I would highly recommend.
Our new favorite spot
We have been to the Waterside numerous times for dinner, and for a few of their "Wine Dinners". Our first love was the way we're were treated by the staff. Secondly, they modified the menu for us, and the food is fit for a persnickety foodie. Thirdly, it is dog friendly.
The Waterside-truly next to the water!
The Waterside Restaurant and Wine Bar has inside and outside dining. Live music plays on the patio on the weekend. Great wine and beer selection. Delicious food items. I suggest the Mediterranean Salad, the iron skillet chicken, the baby back ribs, and really everything on the menu.
Great ambiance and and good mood! Music great. Service is great with friendly staff. Menu options to satisfy most palates. Amount of food a tad underwhelming for the heartier appetite. Nice wine selection. Coils from bar are good! Overall---lovely for a date night. Caters to most adult age groups!
Great food. Great entertainment.
The best prime rib ever! Service was slow, and they were "out of" several items that were on the menu. The place was packed. Truly loved the entertainment - Jodi Farrell and Jim Rankin were awesome! They were even asked to stay for an extra hour because of their talent! I hope they come back often.
state preferences on reservation
We frequent this restaurant for its great scenery and music at brunch on the patio. We made a reservation for brunch recently and were seated inside. When we asked about patio, they said they were all reserved and our reservation (made over Open Table) was for inside - even though there were open tables outside even when we finished. There was no choice presented on the reservation website - - - so take care when making a reservation to indicate your preference!!!!!

We tried several small dishes and all were amazing! Shared a burger that was so fresh and tasty. Can't go wrong on any food... In the marina surrounded by boats, great music and the friendliest staff anywhere. Great place!!!
Great Birthday Lunch
Local to my neighborhood but I had never given it a try until my sister wanted to take me out for my birthday. Our server was lovely and attentive, the food was really great and the ambiance was very comfortable. I will be eating here again, and I highly recommend it for a medium-priced meal and very good food.
