The Reeds at Shelter Haven and its Water Star Grille bar and restaurant by the bay have been popular places to be this summer.

“We’ve been unbelievably busy and very well received,” says The Reeds managing director Ron Gorodesky.

The Reeds at Shelter Haven is a three-story boutique hotel that opened in Stone Harbor in June.

One of its most popular attractions has been The Water Star Grille, an outdoor restaurant and bar located right on the bay.

The Water Star Grille is one of two restaurants in The Reeds, and it will remain open through at least the end September, maybe longer depending on the weather, which means people have just a few more weeks to experience until next summer.

The other restauarnt at The Reeds is The Sax, the indoor and more formal of the two, which will be open year-round.

The Water Star Grille offers a shared plate menu created by executive Chef David Utley, a full wraparound bar and fantastic views overlooking the water, particularly during sunset.

Guests can can choose to sit, eat and drink either at its full bar, at the umbrella-shaded tables on the tiered deck, in an outdoor lounge area or in the ballroom, which is lined with nana doors that fold open like accordions to creating an open-air environment when desired. All four seating areas offer a view of the bay.

The full bar serves several beers on tap and by the bottle, wine by both the glass and bottle and a full selection of mixed drinks. There is also a specialty drink menu available.

Live Entertainment:

On Saturdays and Sundays, The Water Star Grille hosts live entertainment including various steel drum bands from about 2-5 p.m. For Labor Day, it will also host live music on Monday, Sept. 2.

Sunday Brunch:

The Water Star Grille offers a year-round fixed-priced full brunch on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and costs $25 for adults. Bloody Marys and Mimosas can be ordered for an additional charge.
