Fast becoming one of our favorite seafood haunts, located in Uptown Water Grill offers a large variety of quality seafood items including a vast assortment of East and West coast oysters, live King and Dungeness crab and so much more. Their Happy Hour is also something to make you smile.
Offering fish preparations of superior quality, variety and freshness, Water Grill Dallas’ happy hour runs Monday through Friday from 3 to 6pm. Guests to Water Grill Dallas can enjoy happy hour pricing on the Oyster Sampler (deal at $19 a dozen) from the Raw Bar and select bites ranging from $6 to $10. Select wines are available from $6 to $8, while all beer pints are bargain priced at $5 with twenty taps serving fantastic selections and local brews. Additionally, all specialty craft cocktails are available for $8 and all well drinks for $7.
A few of our favorite bites from the Happy Hour menu include fresh ricotta cheese with sea salt served with toasted rustic bread ($6), Atlantic cod fish tacos ($6), and a beautiful homemade goat cheese ravioli ($8) served with salted almonds and an Asian pear puree.
Hearty items such as their bacon Waygu cheeseburger served with fries proved delicious as does both the crab cake and steaming bowl of fresh mussels stirred in a sauce made with harissa and pancetta (all served for $10 each).
Cocktails are a genuine thought on this Happy Hour menu with a few of our favorites including a particularly well made Old Fashioned and their Margarita Verde made with fresh lime juice, agave, cucumber, basil and jalapeno. It is as beautiful as it is delicious.
Happy Hour is springing high in Uptown. Enjoy Water Grill until 6pm, then start thinking about that live King Crab for your group for dinner.
