It appeared that this was Norfolk's attempt to bring more people to the waterfront. It's a nice area, but not a ton of stuff to do here. Handful of restaurants, a park, walking paths, and the dock to catch the ferry are the primary attractions.

I stopped in to check it out, last time I had been here it was a Joe’s Crab Shack, but not any more. Lots of different dining options. Though the twist is that you can get anything from other restaurants right where you are seated....More

Waterside has lots of chill restaurants, beautiful place to sit by the river and have a cold beer. Great for a first date, happy hour or celebrations.

A friend of ours had a birthday last weekend and his girlfriend arranged a party bus for everyone to go to Waterside. We had a great time getting to Waterside and it was nice that no one had to drive; however, once we got there...More

Poor Waterside, renovated beautifully, great location, and has such potential. I completely recommend walking around outside, along the waterfront, of that area. Don't waste your time walking inside or giving them your money! In general, they don't have the best service. Ok food, a tad...More

While in area stopped in for lunch a couple days. Many food choices and a nice place to meet friends. A nice upgrade from the previous setup. Easy walk from the conference center. Would return

The Waterside is a renovated area on the downtown shore near the USS Wisconsin, which, to me, is the hit of the shoreline attraction. But, the newly remodeled area includes a harbor walk and a number of indoor bars/restaurants which really are catering to tourists....More

There are only restaurants, candy and a coffee shop located inside the new Waterside Norfolk. It does not have any retail stores to purchase souvenirs. It does not attract me to visit often due to high price restaurants.

I've seen dogs outside on leashes. When there are festivals, there are often food trucks and entertainment so you don't have to go inside unless you really want to.
