A classy place.

Watermark is literally a step up. Several steps take you from the Ocean Ave entrance to this first floor lounge with its view over the boardwalk. The place oozes quality. PA music is jazz/funk in the main, perhaps set at a volume that suits the place when there are more people and conversations... read more

It doesn't matter what reason or event you are going to the Watermark for because whatever it is you won't be disappointed. I was there recently for the unfortunate circumstances of a memorial service over the loss a much loved community member. Russ, the owner, made sure everything was done to perfection. The food that was served after the service... More

I attended a friends birthday party at the Watermark and was very impressed with the place. It is on the second floor which affords a beautiful view of the beach and ocean. There are two balconies that overlook the boardwalk to enjoy the scenery in nice weather. The interior is perhaps the most nicely decorated bar I've ever visited. There... More

Met some friends at the Watermark last Saturday night and had a magnificent time! Even though a large group of high school reunion people showed up, the club accommodated everyone beautifully. The mood/atmosphere was so conducive to chillin' and socializing, and the bartenders were amazing! Comfy couches, a big fireplace, an outdoor deck for fresh air or a smoke, and... More

I attended a wedding here at the end of summer the club has 2 large terraces that look out at the town and the beach, and it is lovely to sit out there at night. The decor includes big cushions and loungers that are kept very clean and is elegant overall. The food is consistently excellent. I was impressed by... More

The Mixologist did a fabulous job creating the drink menu. He trains all the bartenders to make sure they are prepared consistently. The people watching is amazing from the roof top bar. the small plates are good with a drink, my favorite is the Scallops. The owner is great. The only negative is the servers are sometimes hard to get... More

We had drinks and some snacks on the rooftop deck. The view is great! You can see the Stone Pony and the boardwalk/beach. Nice at sunset. We had delicious sweet potato pancakes, and sliders. Cool atmosphere and good service.
