Water Works Restaurant & Lounge
Water Works Restaurant & Lounge's riverfront view—which includes a cluster of buildings reminiscent of old Rome, Boat House Row, and the Schuylkill Dam—is the main attraction. Befitting the restaurant’s name, their menus include a listing of fine waters such as Lauquen from Patagonia, Iskilde from Denmark, Evian from France, Aqua Panna from Italy, and Voss from Norway. Water Works serves lunch, dinner, and a prix fixe Grand Sunday Brunch from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Executive Chef Darryl Harmon has cooked for Joe Biden, Rudy Giuliani, Jamie Foxx, and the Orlando Magic team.
If you’ve got your heart set on a table in the room that overlooks Boat House Row, or outdoors on the terrace, it’s a good idea to make a reservation well in advance.
