The Waterman - Lake Norman
This place is one of the rare places these days were the management and staff work in tandem to satisfy the customers. Ally aka Alexandria, is one of the amazing member of the staff. I also met the manager which is a rare thing these days. I noticed that the manager motivated his staff from the kitchen, dining room area, prep area and even the bar!! I wanted fish and chips and got exactly it was delicious!! I normally would have a drink , but abstain since it was too early for that. I forgot to mention, the place is very clean and it has a wonderful atmosphere. Kudos!!
I can't say enough good things about this place. The atmosphere is laid back yet classy. You can reservation an area for a nice retirement dinner or tell some friend to meet you at the back bar for drinks. Speaking of the drinks, you have plenty to choose from. When I heard the head chef was from Louisiana, it all made since. Each drink was great. Yet the Fish House Punch Cocktail is a must. Now, the food was amazing too. I know everyone thinks their shrimp & Grits are the best, but this shrimp & grits had a nice crayfish surprise. I highly recommend coming here.
Yum! The service was delightful, drinks were on tap mixed drinks and we shared an assortment of appetizers. The ceviche was delicious, bright and refreshing served with chips. They have happy hour oysters in the afternoon so plan your visit accordingly.
The NC Trout was delicious. My biggest issue was not enough food, but expensive. If you are going to have such an expensive menu, put more food on the plate. I felt like going to Taco Bell afterwards and Im not a big guy. The server was friendly and the place felt comfortable and clean. I will go back actually. If you havent been here, you should try it out!
Service was fast and food was great. They were out of the fish and chips so I went with the burger and lobster roll. The oysters were amazing too!
