Everything about this restaurant is fun. We wanted to sit at the bar to eat. It's a very inviting atmosphere but it was just too crowded. We ended up at a table right next to the pizza ovens. Very fun to watch the activity there. The tables are picnic benches inside also but they have a lot of random chairs... More

My husband and I enjoyed cocktails and a light meal here before a show at the Stone Pony on a recent Saturday night. The extensive cocktail menu offered a great variety of both traditional and exotic beverages, including the Violetta, which uses hard-to find Creme de Violette. (Beautiful and tasty drink!!) We were very pleased with our cocktails, and our... More

We like to go to the Watermark after a day on the beach for the happy hour---no happy hour on the weekends, be sure to order off the happy hour menu. Always enjoyable to sit at the outside bar overlooking the ocean and people watch.

Simply splendid cocktail menu. Hat tipped to the person or team responsible for dreaming up such a delightful assortment of pleasing beverages. The bartender was personable. The view was everything one needs at the beach.

Great place to go with your date or friends. I like the fact the it has an outdoors sitting and indoors which it has an incredible view to the ocean. I consider it a modern American cuisine with some infusions . The food is great and awesome cocktails
