Stopped in for a drink before dinner. Nice selection of cocktails. Try the Blood & Sand. Don't often see this classic drink on many menus. It was made very well, but kind of strange to find it served on the rocks when straight up is the standard way. Was good though. Server was quick and friendly. Great view over the... More

Had a party of 12 adults for my girlfriends daughters birthday. We had ordered a round of drinks. We were just sitting having drinks and we had brought a small birthday cake with us. All we wanted to do was have a piece. Surprisingly the hostess or manager came over and told us we couldn't do this simple thing as... More

We stopped after dinner early on a Saturday night. It was already pretty crowded at 9pm, meaning, unfortunately, that there weren't any couch seats. The lounge area is so comfy and inviting. Drinks are great. They have a fairly extensive list of specialty drinks that they know how to make very well. We had quite a few bitter old fashioneds,... More

Went here last night for some cocktails and snacks before dinner. Off season of course. Very cool place. Right on the boardwalk. Had some great cocktails and really great snacks including some lemon hummus and some really good tofu skewers (believe it or not). Lots of outdoor seating for summertime.

Watermark has such a chill loungie vibe and considering it's right on the beach, really delivered with it's big leather love seats surrounding a cozy gas fireplace. They also hit the mark on their artisan cocktails, which this town really seems to do well. Had we just gone for the scene & the drinks, I would have given this place... More

I really like Watermark in the summer with the outdoor seating. In the fall it's really nice inside with the lighting, the fireplace, and seating. They have a great drink selection: beer, wine, infused liquors, mixed drinks, etc. My only complaint would be that the music gets really loud at a certain time, say after 10 pm. You could not...

I stopped for some drinks and Ioved the warm ambiance. Mixed crowd as far as age so no one feels uncomfortable. Very laid back atmosphere. Nice modern decor with big comfy couches and a very cool fire place.

My wife and I are no spring chickens and when we first visited I was a little apprehensive that our age group was not the crowd welcomed at this fantastic bar. Was I wrong! All of the servers were warm, genuine and on the mark with suggestions and service. The view, the music, the laid-back attitude. Wow. Don't go in... More

Known for its selection of cocktails. Nice, comfortable lounge areas with couches, sectionals, etc. Not a place for dinner but can get bar bites.

Asbury's premier beachfront gathering spot. Part sophisticated drinkery and tapas bar, part music lounge and social club, Watermark's environment is contemporary yet comfortable, refined yet relaxed, upscale yet inclusive.
