Had a wonderful experience. Great food and friendly, courteous and professional staff. My daughter is a fanatic for corn beef hash and voted them one of her top 2 favorites. Just love the friendly local atmosphere. I could just sit for ever with a cup of coffee observing people and listening to conversation and banter.

Ambience was like the 'waiting room' in a hospital. Food simply mediocre. Pricey for the quality of the food. Would not return.

Hubby and I split a breakfast and happy to report the serving size was more than ample! Very fresh and obviously homemade corn beef hash and very good coffee (for a diner). A touch pricey perhaps since you have to pay extra for real maple syrup but we are in a beautiful place in the fall so it's really hard... More

Title says it all, great fried clams and to die for restaurant made onion rings. Very fairly priced, waitress was great, casual dining experience. First time dining there for dinner, but many times for lunch. Really a good choice.

We enjoy our visits to the Water Street Cafe. Our usual waitress, Paula, always greets us with a smile and a warm friendly Hi. Along with the great service the breakfast is fabulous. My favorite is the 2 eggs over medium, cooked perfect every time, corned beef hash and a side of the Polish Beans. The coffee cup doesn't get... More

I was dining alone and chose to read the newspaper while eating, the food was delicious, but what I really liked was my waitress. She was very nice and service was excellent. I noticed her happy voice back in the kitchen saying things like, '"excuse me" or "coming through, please" or "order in", and she had the nicest voice to... More

Mid-Week Lunch, busy location. Food was good quality and decent portion size. I ordered a prime rib French dip. Excellent. Tips that my colleague ordered were smaller than I would expected as a portion size. Service was pleasant, food delivery a little slow. Pricing very reasonable.

We went for breakfast. Table was clean, waitress took our order and brought our coffee right away. Then the wait began. Another couple came in after us, ordered and got served while we waited. Finally, our food was set up on the shelf, ready to be brought to us. Our waitress then cleaned off a table, got some water for... More
