The WSC has been a favorite of ours for a very long time. We usually sit at the bar so we can chat with Chris, the bartender, whom we have gotten to know over time. He's attentive, friendly and remembers what you drink ... a...More

If you are looking for top of the line dinning, look no further. Water Street knows how to serve a fabulous meal and with great service. Try the Fisherman's Stew or the organic salmon. Anything Walter makes tastes great!
