We live in the area and frequent watersview year round. Tonight was disappointed. Cuts of prime rib smaller. Had to wait until end of meal for tea refill. Then was sweet tea rather than unsweetened. Never asked for more wine. Found out new manager. Hope they get their act together before season gets here.

Thank for your feedback. We hope you offer us another opportunity. We pride ourselves on providing our guests with excellent service and top quality food. We have always served 12 oz cuts of Prime Rib. However, if you received an undercut serving, we should have offered you a new cut and we apologize for that rare occurrence. We have regular... More

Husband and I stopped at Watersview this past Friday for dinner. Friday Prime Rib special is excellent. It was a rainy night but the server could not have been nicer. I ordered Prime Rib and husband ordered shrimp and oyster dinner. My prime rib was delicious, cooked just right, and the sides I chose - green beans and onion rings... More

Watersview has consistently improved since new owners took over. Now that Robert is there as General Manager it has gone a step above! The menu offers some great dishes and seasonal items seem to be added frequently. Having entertainment on the weekends adds to the enjoyment and Steve Hyman is one to make a special trip for. Will definitely be... More

This centrally located restaurant is beautiful and the views over scenic Lake Gaston are incredible. The food is good and the atmosphere is delightful. It can be crowded in the summer so plan accordingly!

Went there August 19th with out of town family. Shrimp and Oyster combo hit the spot! Thursday's feature $1.00 off drafts. IPA was cold and super. Burger was excellent. Wait staff very attentive. One of the best, if not the best around Lake Gaston.

We had a group of 15 and it took 50 minutes since they don't take reservations. Very slow service but waitress was friendly. The rolls were tasty and appetizers were so-so. The sweet potato cornbread was good. This sounds minor but my brother had a salad and the ranch dressing was made there and delicious. My rockfish however was like... More

As a family of 4 adults and 5 kids, we decided to stop here to eat before we went to the cottage. Too hot to cook and we were all hungry. Due to our large group (and no advance warning?) we were told 2 hrs wait or maybe you would like the patio? What choice did we have? We took... More

Thank you for visiting our restaurant. We have been quite busy and the extremely hot weather has increased the wait for inside seating. We have made some additions to our outside seating that you may have missed during your visit. We added oscillating fans that run continuously, which are corner mounted, in lieu of overhead mounted. We also had a... More
