Become an employee owner (and have some fun, too!)

Inside an historic 1871 gatehouse perched over the Seekonk River, the Waterman Grille presents a vibrant culinary experience on Providence’s East Side. With its ageless brick texture, restored wood patinas and open kitchen, the dining ambiance is welcoming and authentic. A comfy setting for friends, family, and colleagues to share a casual, crafted meal from the talented hands of Executive Chef Noah Metnick and his team. Our cooking philosophy is inspired by the seasons, emphasizing fresh, local ingredients, with lively flavors and technique emboldened by the embers of our wood-fired grill. Waterman Grille is more unique for its appropriateness to host private events. Within its nooks and crannies, several private event rooms are revealed, making ourselves a destination for special events, large or small.

We’re proud to have one the strongest, friendliest hospitality staffs in New England. Our common goal is to make people happy through great food, great locations and great teamwork. If you feel the same, we want to hear from you.

What is employee ownership?

Once you’ve become a part of our team, you begin earning shares in our company. That means that we invest real dollars on your behalf, and ultimately the company’s profits are divided among our employees. Year in and year out, the better our restaurants do, the more return you see for your own hard work.

Picture of Chef Greg Coccio
Having come up through the kitchens of Newport Restaurant Group, my career has been guided by many talented individuals who have preached hard work, creativity and the dedication to the guest – all while nurturing a familial atmosphere. I’m excited that I now have the opportunity to mentor the next wave of culinary talent for NRG.
