We had lunch here with freinds from BC, on the 27th. Since moving to Bobcaygeon a year ago, we haven't tried all the 'eateries' in town. So this was our first time at Water's Edge. Some previous reviews, especially on Google, were not very good, which made us a little nervous. However, our experience was very good. Our waitress, Angie?,... More

Cozy welcoming atmosphere. Very tasty flavourful sandwhch with crispy fries. My wife had the salad with balsamic dressing and did not enjoy as the dressing is just balsamic vinegar it would have been better with a few more ingredients to tame it down!!!

It's not fine dining. It says so in the sign but it isn't. The in house made soup was fine. Average and what you'd expect in a nice place. The salads were attractively assembled but the dressings seemed bottled. It tastes looked and had the consistency of Kraft raspberry vinaigrette. That's OK because I like Kraft dressing but I was...

We have had both lunch and dinner at this wonderful lakeside restaurant. The staff are friendly and the service was perfect. Both lunch and dinner menu's had a good selection of excellent food. We certainly will be visiting The Water's Edge again.

Had family and friends in from out of town yesterday and choose Watersedge so we could dine by the water. Our food was amazing, best Lamb Shank in the area by far and the Pork was delicious. Service as always was perfect, thanks Chris and special thanks to Shawna for the perfect Cosmopolitan. See you soon

You can't beat the location on the water overlooking channel going into Bobcaygeon lock. Great patio!! Docking for a few boats at restaurant. Best restaurant that I have been to in Bob!! Good food and staff, reasonably priced.

We have enjoyed numerous lunches and dinners over the past several years both with friends and business associates. The atmosphere and food has always been excellent. The owner Shawna makes everyone feel welcome including the canine member of our family. This restaurant is a must stop when you visit Bobcaygeon. Be sure to call ahead and book your dockage if...

This is a very popular place in Bobcaygeon, all the locals eat here, and the food service are great. We ate lunch at this location three times, in three days, so we tried a lot of the menu. Great location on the locks, and the patio is fantastic. Good Food.

This is one of our favourites.;). This is one of our favourites. The beef brisket sandwich is amazing - in our opinion, the single best menu item. I gather others think the same. Being on the lake, views of the boat traffic is lovely.

The review from the lady claiming they don't understand allergies couldn't be more wrong. Of course she did order shrimp and then got upset they brought her shrimp. (so says her review). I'm celiac and my daughter is allergic to diary and nut. They did a great job accommodating both us and having lots of fun along the way. Food... More
