Though Boardwalk is the most sought after of Monopoly lots, the oft-overlooked Water Works is truly the most fertile property—but not until you break the rules by converting four houses into one fine restaurant. Experience the favorable outcome of this bold move with today's deal: for $25, you get a four-course prix-fixe dinner at Water Works Restaurant and Lounge in Fairmount, a $50 value. The specialty prix-fixe menu is only available Tuesday–Friday and Sunday; your Groupon is coincidentally only good on the same days, which works out nicely, like a baby penguin catching a ride on the back of a passing ice turtle. Reservations aren't required but are highly encouraged.

The prix-fixe menu is in constant rotation depending on the available ingredients and Magic 8-Ball of Executive Chef Darryl Harmon. Though the menu is always subject to change, current first-course options include soup du jour or a Water Works salad followed by a sorbet selection. Entrees include pan-seared airline chicken breast, grilled salmon, or risotto du jour. For the most important course, dessert, you'll just have to be surprised with the chef's duo, just like when you were surprised to wake up with your hair on backwards. As a lifelong culinary enthusiast, Darryl draws upon years of experience in preparing and eating to plate his creative take on American fare.

The restaurant sits on a historic patch of Philly that once housed one of the nation's first municipal water-delivery systems. In the many years since the booming heyday of people drinking lots of water, the area transitioned from delivering water to providing majestic eye candy. While you enjoy the delicate dinner before you, soak in the sights of Boathouse Row and the beauteous Schuylkill River, home of the Schuylkill river dolphins and their melodious moon-moaning. Smooth music provides the auditory backdrop to complete the five-sense stimulation associated with a trip to Water Works.


Philadelphia magazine loves the view from the terrace at Water Works, awarding the restaurant Best Upscale Outdoor Scene, and the magazine's reviewers rate it 6.3 out of 10 overall:

  • We were all tremendously impressed with the service. Our waiter was remarkably pleasant, knowledgeable, and helpful…Lastly, you just can't beat the location! It's absolutely perfect. – Vicki

Citysearchers give it three stars, praising the views from the glassed-in terrace:

  • The best part of the Waterworks is the romantic atmosphere on the glass in deck area over looking the river, with the smooth live music playing in the background. It is beautiful on a nice evening with the one you love. – sweetlb, Citysearch

Customer Reviews

I had a wonderful time, and they redeemed the amount I paid for my Groupon even though it had been loooong expired. Excellent service and atmosphere!
