I had a wonderful time at the Watershed Grill this past weekend. The service was great and the food was delicious! You have to see this view it's incredible. I will definitely recommend this place to anyone who asks.
Wonderful people, wonderful, food, wonderful atmosphere.
Reid and his staff should take a bow.
bed food worse service and incompatent management is what a trip to the watershed sums up. Food is overcooked, kitchen is dirty. I doubt this will see posting because all the sheep want to see is the bright light and not the road kill

"The WaterShed Grill has a reputation for having one of the cleanest kitchens from Horseshoe Bay to Whistler inclusive" -Kitchen Maintenance Service Company
The WaterShed Grill is by far the most successful restaurants in the corridor for the past four years. I would suggest this has much to do with competent management.
food is very good if you prefer your meal over cooked and bland. If you do not want to see your server and be serounded by regulars with substance abuse problems and owners who over look cocaine use in the restrooms on a friday and saturday nigyt then the waershed grill is your ideal destination.
Establishment's Comments on this review:
I would suggest that this review is inaccurate.
On any summer day at the Watershed I find it hard to find a seat on the beautiful yet bustling patio. Granted, the wait for food and drinks might be a bit longer than a thirst hungry patron would hope for, but if you saw how busy all the staff are you would understand why. When your order arrives, it is always well worth it, fresh, delicious, good value and served with a smile!
It would appear that whoever posted the negative reviews above have a personal vendetta against the watershed. If it was at all bad you wouldnt find the seats crowded on any day of the week.
in squamish the watershed is the best of the worst but then standards are not very high to begin with. The food is not worth the wait.
A spectacular place with great views, and good service. Really loved the fish tacos and baked brie and roasted garlic dish. I highly recommend this establishment anytime of the year.
not much to say about a place that excels at being mediocre and setting standards so low that they are not hard to beat.
I would highly recommend the Watershed for it's amazing location and excellent food, unfortunately the service is so horrendous that it over shaddows all of the positive things that this restaurant has going for it. The last time I hosted a staff function at the Watershed, the service was so poor that we actually had to beg the waitress to get our bill. Having been assured by management that they were "dealing with their staffing issues", we returned just recently. I was again so disappointed in the service, although I wanted so badly to believe that they could make a turn around, as I do feel the place has alot going for it. Sigh... I guess I will give it another couple of months and hope that they are able to get rid of the dead weight that is their serving staff and find employees that are of the same quality as their food and their view.
I have in past worked in the restaurant industry as both a server as well as a manger. I am a firm believer in addressing issues head on as apposed to leaving upset and not at least informing the management to give them a chance to rectify the issue. I have to commend you on both the venue and atmosphere of your restaurant as well as the quality of the food. I have never had a bad meal at the Watershed. What I have had over and over again is poor service. Over the past six months I have three of the poorest service experiences of my life in your establishment. The most recent example was our server Kate I believe her name was, forgetting the same appetizer twice, forgetting our drinks once, and then going into a long rant about how over worked and under payed she was and that was why the service was poor. The two previous experiences involved another server who on both occasions was too busy flirting with male patrons so that we had to basicaly beg to get our bill and then called me cheap under her breath for the marginal tip I left only in hopes that it would make it to the kitchen, not to her.
I am always one to look for the silver lining, and I think you serve an amazing product in an unbeatable setting. Great restaurants are few and far between in Squamish and not only would I love to come back over and over, I would love to recommend your establishment to others. I hope that you take this for only what it is and hope that you can sort out your staffing issues so that I have a local restaurant where both the food and the service are above par.
The main problem with the watershed grill is that it is not so much treated as a business but as a place to get drunk and hang out with their friends. Customers are treated as more of a annoyance to their day. Job wise if you are a worker who shows any skill over what the owners have or like to hire you will be tossed for making them look bad.
Great views- probably the most scenic spot in the Squamish/brackendale area, although you wouldn't expect it from what the place appears to be from the street. Their food is generally good but they need to get new buns for their (otherwise realllly good) burgers! The beer selection is fairly paltry but the ribs, oh the ribs, are to die for! Breakfasts are a k
little mediocre- go down the street to the nest for really good breakie fare!
Very good food if you are drunk, stoned or just have no taste buds, great place to pick up an easy waitress
We had a wonderful experiance last weekend at this cozy riverside resturant. I was shocked to read as many negative reviews as i did when i looked this up on food pages. Urbanspoon reviews were great. So this is my little part to change your mind. The place was packed. We were welcomed at the door by a big friendly giant of a man who introduced himself as the GM. He told us there was a longer wait for food than usual (45 min). We decided to stay and have a couple of cocktails while we waited. The service was great. She was attentive to our needs and when the food did arrive it was fresh and delicious. We really liked the Watershed. I have already planed another visit for next month on our way home from whistler. I just wish we had a place like this in Mission. Oh yeah .. btw.... It has an amazing patio with views that can not be described in words... got to see it to believe it. Thank you to the Watershed!!! Glen
My professional co-workers and I have experienced the Watershed Grill for lunches and dinners on many occasions and have always left completely satisfied by the food and the service. I've just read the negative review about having to be stoned to enjoy the food and "easy" waitresses. Unbelievable! The servers are sweet and very professional! It sounds like that review was inspired by a "stoner" with a personal vendetta.
Keep up the good work Watershed staff!
Absolutely excellent food and service. Very impressed
great place to eat if you have no expectations or are just happy with fast food quality and a lack of service.
Excellent - food great, atmosphere great - definitely will go again!
Excellent. You have to go there to appreciate this place. Its just right - the people, the river, the inside/outside vibe. Then the food comes. Yes. So they didn't need to impress me by calling the next day to say my lost wallet was safe, turned in intact ~ I already had a good taste in my mouth from the salmon!
