I come here for their Catfish cooked nicely and tasty. My wife says their burgers are good also. The cafe is behind Jimmys Big Burger.

Waters Edge has always had good food and a great breakfast. The owners are delightful and service is personalized. You must stop by and try the new additions to the menu. My steak was excellent and my husband had the pork chop. He is still...raving. My daughter always has her favorite, BLT salad. Run, don’t walk and try them tomorrow. Open 7am-8pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. 7am -2pm on Saturday, Sunday and WednesdayMore

This is supposed to be a Cajun style restaurant, but it's just a local diner. They serve a nice breakfast and a decent burger.

Water's Edge Cafe in Little Elm isn't much to look at when you arrive. But don't let that stop you. It's a quaint little place that has fantastic food, and a staff that really cares for you. My personal favorite is their Chicken Fried Steak....It's a very, very generous portion and comes with 2 veggies and a salad. I always have some to take home.More

My wife and I went here last night for dinner. First time visit. I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised. It's a small restaurant, not a big sprawling place. We went early, about 5:30, so it wasn't really busy. It's warm and inviting,...and we were greeted warmly when we ordered at the counter. I had the catfish platter and my wife had the roasted chicken. Both were very good, and served very quickly. The portions are good, not to small or large. The price was really good for the quality of food. It's a great local place for date night, or when you just don't want to cook. We'll be back.More

I go there with my family often and the po boys are tasty. I've had the shrimp and catfish. They are both delicious. The desserts I've had are ok.
