The Waterways Shoppes
The pours are generous, but the bites are on the small side at Q Lounge, so it's never a great idea to come on an empty stomach.

Our Food Critic's Rating:
3.0 / 5 Stars
The ambience at Q Lounge at the Waterways Shoppes is terrific.
It's mellow and upscale.
At between $12 and $15 for martinis and margaritas, drinks are expensive.
(There's a 2-for-1 Happy Hour that runs daily from 6pm until 9pm, but top-shelf brands are excluded).
For a small boîte, there is a good-size list of sangrias, plus white and red wines.
I wouldn't come on an empty stomach, as the plates are small.
The place isn't a full-blown restaurant and doesn't pretend to be one.
When it comes to food, it mostly offers pizza, wraps, salads, and burgers, most of which hover around a very affordable $10.
But everything is tiny.
The taste has a distinctive Latin flair and you'll mostly hear Spanish being spoken by the patrons.
It's a warm and inviting spot. The location cannot be beat. The patio is an ideal location to kick back and relax with a stiff
drink, especially on a crisp South Florida winter night.
I rarely miss the chance to order a Lychee martini (the bartenders make them smooth as silk), put my feet up, and light a cigar
on the patio after a generous helping of sushi rolls at Kampai upstairs.
