At Water Street Kitchen...

we believe a good restaurant can bring together many of the very best things in life: good food and drink, friends and family, celebration, community, and in our case a waterfront view and an ocean breeze! These are the things at the heart of Water Street Kitchen, and we aim to make sure all of these elements make their way into your dining experience. 

Chef John Wilson uses seasonal ingredients to create a menu that is fresh, made from scratch, full of global inspiration, and yet will remind you of the best home-cooked suppers. The menu evolves as the seasons change to use the best of locally sourced produce and seafood, and we strive to use only sustainably fished and farmed ingredients.

We invite you into our cozy waterfront dining room, and we look forward to sharing our table with you!
