Recently went to Waterman's. Had a wait of approx. 45 minutes which was not bad. When the family got seated, the service was first class. The waiter was very on top of things. The water glass never went empty, which is a big plus. The entrée that was ordered consisted of shrimp, scallops and crabmeat. It arrived at the table... More

We set one night aside for an upscale seafood dinner during our trip to Virginia Beach. After checking several rating sites, we decided on Waterman's due to the menu variety and location. Waterman's is located almost at the edge of the strip and open later than most seafood restaurants. We arrived about 8:15 PM and there was still a waiting... More

Ate at Watermans Sunday evening with friends and the past Monday 15 May with my wife. The food was delicious as always and the service was great. Really surprised how busy they were on a Monday but if you have good food and service people will visit regardless of the day of the week.

We live in Virginia Beach but had not eaten here until our family came for a visit from Kansas. We got a variety of meals and thought they were very good. I got the flounder tacos, thought they were excellent with a lot of flavor and the sweet tea was very tasty. Watermans has a nice location right on the... More

We loved Waterman's so much we visited there twice during our 4 night vacation in Virginia Beach! It was a long wait to be seated, but definitely worth it! Fresh seafood, and great drinks. Service was awesome too! They were definitely busy, but our waitress was very attentive! Will return on our next vacation!

This is one of the key landmarks of Virginia Beach, Virginia. Great food, signature drinks (Orange Crush). The ocean and boardwalk views are great. You can spend all day eating, drinking and watching people. Plenty of sitting room for all seasons. I and the people I know Love It!
