Ordered lunch basket, when it came it consisted of 4 shrimp 2 scallops with fries. Food was good but for $19.99! Do not mind paying for good seafood, but WOW.

I was instructed to head to Waterman's while visiting specifically to try the Orange Crush (delish). We started with the She-Crab soup, which we found quite good if heavy on the cream. My wife ordered the crab cakes with a side Caesar. She enjoyed the salad, and the crab cakes were delicious and full of crab, not filler which is... More

Went for dinner with a party of 8, including 3 kids. We had a great table for the family with a beautiful view of the beach. Excellent dinner and very reasonably priced since everyone's food was cooked just right. We got there shortly after 5 on a Friday and waited 5 minutes, which is probably unusual. Food came out quickly... More

Our family (party of 3) dined here on a Saturday night. Even though we were told it would be an hour wait, we asked to be on the list to be seated. While we waited, we went to the patio bar for a drink, watched many Orange Crushes being made and consumed, then made our way back to the waiting... More

Had dinner with a large group of friends. The waitress was very good and the food was great. I shared the crab dip which was great, and followed it with the she crab soup. They were perfectly seasoned. Then I had the tuna dinner, it was a nice size piece perfectly cooked and blackened. When back in town I will... More

Waterman's is your typical restaurant surf side with seafood, burgers, etc. that many flock to for the atmosphere, with outside seating. It is also one of the only places to grab lunch on the boardwalk from the beach at the south end. For dinner, many times there is generally a 60 minute wait, but you can enjoy their signature drink,... More

The view is fabulous. On the boardwalk with a great breeze. The waitress was terrific and knew the menu. I had 2 drinks , the orange crush was boring but the other crush with vanilla vodka (a creamsicle crush, I believe) was excellent. the calamari was really pretty good. The crab was satisfactory and the seafood pasta was so- so.... More

We had a party of 20 and two adjacent tables. Our dinners were beautifully presented with succulent seafood, fresh veggies and wonderful cocktails. Service was fast and food was hot. Good kids menu too. Best part is the wonderful beach views! Valet parking is available.
