My family and I really enjoyed our meal at this restaurant. I got the fried shrimp, which was lightly fried and cooked perfectly. My husband got the burger, which he really enjoyed. The restaurant is very clean and the servers were friendly. I would go for dinner around five as the restaurant gets packed. We will definitely visit this restaurant... More

The staff was very nice and friendly. Parking your own car is nearly impossible. Long wait for an outside table but inside was short and the restaurant floor is stepped so that you can see outside from wherever you sit.

Wait staff and bartenders were excellent. Really clean restaurant. It was certainly better than Captain George's in my opinion.

I took my boyfriend for Father's Day and he loved it. he was able to watch the NBA Finals and enjoy great food and drinks. The staff was the best! They catered to everyone and were so nice and fun. Will make that our new spot when we come to VA Beach.

Everything was good, as the title indicates, but nothing have either of us a "wow" or " best we've ever had" moment. Busy, popular spot, with good food, so you can't go wrong with Waterman's.

Being local, we've been to Watermans many times and have often recommended it to the guests who stay at our lodging facility. Over time, Watermans has become increasingly disappointing, with portion sizes becoming embarrassingly small, food taste just average instead of good, and little variety of seafood compared to other restaurants in the resort area. Will no longer be our... More

Great location. Good service. Food was average. Did not accept reservations or call-ahead seating the week we visited due to graduations.

I have been to this restaurant several times. This time was on Father's Day with no advance reservation. It was packed. Access to the parking lot was crowded even though an excellent alternative was available. Wait staff was young and good in getting my seat after 45 minutes. Service in the dining room was slow especially in refilling my tea.... More

What a lovely view for dinner and the food was out of this world! We had the greatest server who was very attentive to our needs. Waterman's has lots of unique alcoholic drinks as well. Try it, you will love it!
