Prices in the North are much higher and this place is no exception. Burger available in connected bar not available. Same menu and kitchen with that one exception. Service average. Immediately lump on larger groups leaving tables for 1 or 2 waiting. Hotel Arctic guests cannot charge meals to rooms as apparently leased from hotel owners.

Grab a seat by the window facing south-west and soak in the sunshine. Great beer selection - they have some crafts on the menu, i.e. Hoptical Illusion. Food is solid - great wraps and burgers. Can't go wrong with their classic chicken strips.

Their breakfasts are good, and the usual server, Jose, is an absolute delight! The eggs benedict are particularly noteworthy!. Lunch specials are fine and imaginative, and their homemade soups are rich and interesting (shrimp and... More

We had dinner and breakfast at the Water's Edge as it is co located with our hotel. Food was well prepared and served in a reasonable time. Nothing spectacular but good sustenance

Have visited this restaurant before but not in >3 years to this trip. Very consistent. High quality food, service with nice menu choices. Well appointed dining room with good layout and elbow room. Nice to see good things can stay the same

I stayed at the Hotel Arctic, which is attached, and had all my breakfasts and several dinners at the Water's Edge during a recent trip to Iqaluit. I was very pleasantly surprised by how well the food was prepared. Could it be because there are so many Québécois in the kitchens in Iqaluit? Nothing spectacular but everything prepared well. If...
