Watervue Grille Opening on Harbour Island

Andrew Bonnemort , the owner of Café Dufrain and Cry Baby Café on Harbour Island, announced the opening of his new Harbour Island restaurant, Watervue Grille. The restaurant, located at 700 Harbour Post Drive, will open November of 2017.

Watervue Grille will have a heavy focus on fresh Florida seafood while also bringing diverse flavors to the menu in a waterfront setting with the best views of Downtown Tampa. The restaurant will offer creative cocktails, waterfront patio seating and a private dining & event space.


In addition to the available street and garage parking on Harbour Island, Watervue Grille is within easy walking distance from the Tampa Convention Center, the Amalie Arena and the Tampa History Museum. Additionally, one of Watervue Grille’s most unique features is its proximity to Harbour Island’s public boat docks and Pirate Water Taxi stop #4 which are mere steps from the front door.  As a result, Watervue Grille will be able to provide quality waterfront dining to patrons arriving by both land and sea.

Watervue Grille joins the family of Harbor Island restaurants

Café Dufrain (established 2003) and Cry Baby Café (established 2014) are both family owned and operated. Café Dufrain offers New American Cuisine, local craft beers and a boutique wine list.

Open Monday – Saturday with happy hour daily from 3pm to 7pm.  Cry Baby Café is open daily from 7am to 3pm, serving hand-made breakfast and lunch, alongside a selection of fresh-baked pastries and fresh organic coffees.
