My wife had the soft shell crab dinner and it was excellent! My rockfish sandwich was just OK, a little over cooked and bland? Service was average, our waitress tried hard but was a little scattered.

Crabs are outstanding as long as the crab participates! Good crabs make for good tasting crabs and Waterman's takes care of the rest.

My wife & I had a wonderful lunch at Waterman's following a several year absence. We enjoyed the soft crabs and Chesapeake combo - fried oysters and chicken salad. Our server, Tammy, was exceptional and the food matched the service. Will definitely visit more often & highly recommend.

Good food - could have been a little hotter. Had the crabcake fried oyster combo - arrived luke warm. The quality could not have been better - crabcake was loaded with crabmeat and the fried oysters were crunchy and moist inside. Also had the raw oysters - were delicious. Service was good. Would have liked to be seated at a... More

Food was great! Had crab balls for an appetizer, crab cake sandwich and my boyfriend had the tuna sandwich!! All excellent. Service was also great! Bartender was very nice and welcoming. I don't normally write reviews but as a former bartender I had to say this is a great place!!

I am a frequent visitor of Waterman's when visiting my parents who live here. Waterman's never disappoints. I was there for dinner tonight and tried a new menu item: shrimp and grits! It was delicious; Spicy andouille sausage with cheese grits cakes! Spencer our server was attentive and friendly! I'm never disappointed with the food, service and the beautiful view!

This restaurant has a location on the dock to watch the boats and the sunset. The staff is very friendly. We were greeted right away and allowed to choose our table. The crab cake I had was good, plenty of lump crab meat. My husband enjoyed his orange roughy. Our entrees came with a choice of two sides. They were... More

Right on the water, great service, great fries, and the fish is fresh and tasty. I had the blackened ahi tuna tacos. Great sauce! Tuna done just right. We all enjoyed our food thoroughly!
