I have never bothered to write a bad review of anything before. Food was bad all three visits, rockfish was dry and over cooked, salad was limp with wilted produce, overcooked veggies with some sort of fat cooked in, even the coleslaw was terrible.

Charles, the chef, knows his way around seafood. The oyster sampler plate was a tasty pick. I would like to try a similar crab version. The staff was friendly and the crab house is situated on a lovely spot of the bay.

We're sorry to have to write such a negative view because the view was nice and the service was good, but the food was awful. I had fried shrimp and mashed potatoes and my husband had the rockfish fried sandwich and fries. Not sure if it was the way they fried the food or the breading they used but neither... More

Great crabs and watching the sunset over the bay. Go every 4th of July for the fireworks all along the Maryland Shore. Good music and environment. Not expensive.

It was cool watching the boats dock and you walk right into the crab house. We had lunch on the dock patio and it was lively and fun with good music.

Group of 10 sailors ready for crab cakes, crabby chicken sandwiches, and lots of hot fries; consistently a winner. Just a fun, living place to gather after a day on the water. Sunsets cannot be beat on the deck.

All the standard Chesapeake fare, only better, plus view and atmosphere. Service is superb, with real warmth from the whole staff. They love their work, and it shows.

This is my first trip in the Fall to the Waterman's vs. typical Summer visits. The Maryland Crab Soup was rich in flavor, lots of crab and house-cut vegetables! Great stuff! I guess I wasn't really paying attention to what I ordered.....Blue Crab Bleu Cheese Burger but GEEZ, this was awesome. A substantial beef-burger (MR....perfect) with a LOAD of blue... More
