Strong Waters Craft Cocktails & Kitchen
Strong Waters Bar, a prohibition-era-inspired restaurant across from The Breakers Resort, is putting its own twist on brunch. They source their ingredients fresh, and locally, and utilize a ‘Farm to Table style approach to their menu. On it, you’ll find items like Lobster Benedict, Crispy Chicken Croissant, Strong Waters Shrimp & Grits, and Pork Belly Tacos. For those with a sweet tooth, try a Signature Stuffed Waffle or the Cast Iron Pancake – both stuffed to the brim with fresh fruit. Strong Waters is known for their swanky cocktails, so you’ll find them poppin’ plenty of bubbly for mimosas and pouring a little something extra into the local coffee they serve. They have Bottomless Mimosa specials and for those that wish to craft their own drink to sip at brunch, you can build your own bloody mary at their Blood Amazing Bar!
