Restaurant details
Reviewed 25 August 2018

My wife and I recently visited Watermans Brewing Company for the first time this past week. First of all we were both surprised at how nice the interior of the restaurant was. We both remembered this location from when it catered to college students as a bar and pool hall. A BIG difference.

We sat at the bar and ordered a couple of their beers.We both liked the light taste and flavor....My wife ordered the Sol Fuego Shrimp and I ordered the Vikings Rice. Both were excellent and very tasty.

Our bartender was Cameron and he was just a pleasure to have behind the bar. Plus he gave me a quick tour of the brewing room...Which I thoroughly enjoyed. We both enjoyed our first visit to Watermans brewing Company and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great Brew-Pub in the Wrightsville Beach area.

First time and we had 8ppl. We sat ourselves and the waitress was quick to bring us menus. It was a rainy day - like it has been all summer! The restaurant filled quick. And there was only 1 waitress. The bartender was very rude and slow - felt like we inconvenienced him when we ordered drinks from him as the waitress was busy. We observed 1 table leave before even ordering because service took so long. Another person started running beverages - possibly the owner? But he did about 5 runs then sat at the bar. We got there at 1130am - 8 people....we left at 3pm! It took that long for drinks & food. I felt so bad for the waitress...so many tables an no help. Food was pretty good! But we got parts of our table every 5-8 minutes. No brew maker came around asking if we had questions or explaining the beers we ordered flights on, learn about the brewery. Customer service training and more staff would be nice.

the beer is ok, the food is incredible. I had the tuna tacos and they were the best fish tacos I have ever eaten, EVER. Big pieces of perfectly cooked tuna with mango, avocado, and other goodies. The homemade chips and salsa with cheese were also very good. If you don’t drink beer go here for the food

Visited for a late lunch, just a few people at the bar and we were the only diners. Service was good, crab cake sandwich and burgers were very good. Tater tot appetizer could have been warmer but it was good. Beers were very good also.

First time at this place. It was doing a luau by roasting a whole pig. Got a table in front of a rockabilly 4 piece band. Loud but enjoyable. We were not in a rush so we were not concerned when the service was spotty. After a while we got drinks and 10 minutes later ordered our food. Talked a lot to our friends and started noticing other people who came in later than us get there orders. An hour after we sat down the waitress said the kitchen lost our order. Ouch. She said they were sorry and that it would be out soon. 10 minutes later she came back to offer us free deserts because of their screw-up. A few minutes later the food arrived.

My wife ordered a P.O.-boy shrimp sub with only shrimp and lettuce. She didn’t get the sub bread. Only shrimp on some lettuce. The waitress fixed it by bring out the bread. The food was very good once we got it. They did give us desert free.

I think we felt neglected and upset that the manager couldn’t take the time to come and apologize. They lost our order causing us an hour wait for food while other people got theirs on time. Not sure if we will go back. Gave it an average for poor service but good food. However the problem might be that they were roasting a whole pig causing undo stress on the staff.
