    Not impressed by the food or service. Great location, decor, ambiance, and patio. Good date spot if you're not picky about food. Apparently brunch and happy hour are Water Coastal's high point.

    One of the best lunches in Carytown!

    The blackened tuna sandwich, add banana peppers. You can't beat it.

    Great patio and food, but worst Sunday inventory upkeep in Cary Town. You know it's bad when the silverware gets 86ed.

    First visit here. The food was incredible! Crab cakes, asparagus and mashed potatoes for me and Mahi and steak kabobs for my husband. Yum! This will be one of our favorites!

    Don't come here if you're not in the mood to listen to the bartenders complain about their jobs.

    Watch out for the second floor high top by the fire place. The sharpcorner on the mantle will cause brain matter to seep out onto the floor. We got a bleeder!!

    Mussels in lemon grass curry coconut sauce, yes. Calamari is the most tender I've had in RVA - orange sauce is excellent.

    I agree with Chad. Great patio. The mahi-mahi with mango salsa was delicious. Miss the lobster risotto.

    This is my favorite place to get brunch on Sundays!! I recommend the fried green tomatoes or veggie omelet. So delicious!! P.S. The boys that work there are not bad to look at either ;)

    Currently my favorite place to get brunch. The Eggs Benedict is to die. They even bring you a basket of complimentary mini muffins to your table, once you place your order.
