A new beacon of light on the Norfolk Waterfront. The renovation process is still underway but the venues which participated in the Grand Opening appear to offer lots of variety. Guy Fierris smokehouse, PBR Grill and Blue Moon Brew Pub are the main attractions on the ground floor. The Fudgery, Luk Fu asian sushi and noodles, Cogans Pizza, an Oyster... More

The vibe is active and fun. The food choices were great. We ate at Guy Fieris Smokehouse. Get the burger with brisket and pulled pork. They have a big screen TV in the middle of the building with tables and chairs around. The building was packed with young people behaving themselves and having a good time.

While the renovation looks terrific and the "vibe" inside is awesome.. I must say, why on earth would you build such a stunning area and then not put in a proper coffee shop? The only coffee shop was serving drip coffee and the kind where you just push a button- like at WaWa. Bizarre! I don't get it, seems like... More

How long you spend at Watersides depends on what you choose to do in there. If you are dining at one of the many restaurants that HAVE been in there and SHOULD return after the renovations, then you will spend at least 2-3 hours. Watersides is undergoing a massive renovation right now, so the place is temporarily empty with tons... More

It was a nice place to visit, there were places to sit and relax. The only disappointment was there wasn't any restroom near there.
