Butter Broiled Crabcake Dinner

They food was good but my server Maximilian was great. My drink was never empty, while the food was hot and delicious. He also has the best suggestions for a tourist in need of adventure!!!

Coconut Shrimp

Awesome place. We sat outside on the patio and had an awesome view of the water. The coconut shrimp was amazing. Beer was nice and cold.

Grouper Dinner

We first stopped at Backwaters with friends who live nearby and now has become one of our staple restaurants when we travel from Olmsted Falls, Ohio. We have definitely found a new favorite. The grouper was perfectly cooked and served. Jackie was the perfect bar/server who treated us like long time friends. By the way, the Crab Cake special was to die for and can't wait to come back. See you in October!

Chicken Parmesan Pasta

Great place! Waitstaff was very attentive. The chicken Parmesan was very good and a large portion. Didn’t like the hose cabernet (too sweet). Prices are very reasonable. We will be back

Coconut Shrimp

We visit the area once or twice a year. This is our go-to place for great food, drinks, and relaxing atmosphere. The occasional dolphin sightings are always a joy too.

Chicken Parmesan Pasta

Tired of seafood, we went to Blackwater to have something different. I love the chicken Parmesan and my hubby had a burger. We both enjoyed the food. Our server was great. Try this place!
