They have good music and decent food. Its been a while since I went and wrote this review. But its a nice place to go for a Fri or Sat night. They used to have comedians there...but that was old management.

I've been reading the reviews about Waters Edge and just wanted to make a note about some of the recent negative comments:

They are no longer adding gratuity to every check. The new policy is that an 18% gratuity will be added to parties of 8 or more and only if they are not separate checks.

Just so everyone knows, if gratuity is added you have the right to decline it. No establishment can legally force a patron to pay gratuity.

The place is under new management and they are trying to fix the issues. It isn't going to change overnight but they are definitely making an effort.

We wanted seafood near Lorton so we tried Waters Edge. Located on the river next to a cement plant, we didn't expect nice views, but the fall foliage view was great out on the open deck. The atmosphere is more like a huge bar than a restaurant, but it wasn't too noisy at 6:15 on Friday night, though more smokey than we would have preferred with our small grandchildren.

We started with a delicious calamari appetizer. Our party had catfish plates and the $16.95 all you can eat crab specials. The crabs were flavorful and delicious, but served with no sides. My husband and son had the catfish and did not like the thick runny pieces they were served, but did enjoy their onion rings. They prefer the thinner, crispier, Southern style catfish. We were able to get a second helping of crabs, but as we were checking out shortly after 7PM the waitress said they had run out of crab, so ask before you order.

We may visit again, but would only do so without small children for lunch or early evening as it seems that the volume of the music definitely increased at 7PM. They only have 3 high chairs and 2 had broken lap belts. We also did not care for the wine, beer and drinks being served in solo cups. The parking lot does not have a lot of light after dark so be observant when you park.

I normally tip 25-35% for good food and service. This automatically added 18% tip for bills over $50 is apparently a new marketing concept. I understand this may be necessary for large parties of 6-8 or more, but certainly not on any monetary amount. We enjoyed this place the first 3 times we went there, but no more. I don't wish to be, or ever have been told, what to tip in any other place but here. A very poor management decision.
