Philadelphia, PA - Water’s Edge Gastropub and Lounge, Bensalem, PA. My next ‘best of’ list will have a new category, which is for the ladies. Best ‘when you have to tell your guy you slept with his brother’ Cheesesteak; go to The Water’s Edge Gastropub and Lounge.
Water’s Edge Gastropub and Lounge, Bensalem, PA
At the Water’s Edge, your guy will be on sensory overload, and you will be able to break any bad news to him. It starts with water, boat slips, and a deck bar. They have ‘the pool house.’ They currently have comedy nights in the pool house.
In the main building, they have a big room, and that night, they had a corn hole championship. I know, I thought those were only in Florida.
The main bar and diner rooms are spacious, well decorated, and vibrate. Before I talk about the fantastic food, I will tell you about the one thing that sets the Water’s Edge apart from any other facility in the Philadelphia/Pennsylvania/New Jersey/ Delaware area.
The bad news you have for your guy is you want to throw your parent’s a 50th Wedding Anniversary party. It includes flying in relatives. How will your guy happily agree to this event? The Water’s Edge Gastropub and Lounge.
They have plenty of room for a big dinner party - and food that everyone will rave about. But wait a minute, relatives flying in will want a quiet place to relax and visit after the big event. And they will need a place to stay. And a family breakfast the next day.
Boom; The Water’s Edge has a former Bed and Breakfast on the property. Double Boom; was built in the 1800s. Triple Boom; a bar, 6 guest rooms, and space for next day’s breakfast. How do we close this deal? The Food.
Start off with the Chicken Pharm Egg Rolls. Next appetizer, Macaroni & Cheese Waffles with Bacon Cheese Sauce. When he is reeling from them, hit him with Deep Fried Ribs in a sticky sweet brown sauce.
Everyman will say yes to anything right now but show him who his boss is, Cheesesteak Wrap with French Fries. Yes, it is a cheesesteak wrap, and I took a point or two off for that.
The meat, Ribeye, and cheese work so well together that they could be served on anything and be a top cheesesteak. This Cheesesteak puts the cheese in Cheesesteak, with a perfect amount of cheese melt. Next, the Caramelized onions do their part and, for a little flavor, some bacon fat.
Why not go full-on food coma with the Deep Fried Red Velvet cake with a side of ice cream for dessert. I wish I could tell you about the steak served on top of mashed sweet potatoes, but they never made it to my end of the table. It looked, smelled, and sounded amazing. I was on excellent food high, so it didn’t bother me.
