Sadly, owner John passed away and Watermark is now closed. At one time I would have said it was one of the great ones...within the last year, though, the quality hit rock bottom....I saw today that it is opening under a new name, Kellie's...we shall see...

I am local here. This is a family run restaurant that serves good home cooked meals at a very reasonable price. It is good for families with children. The people here care about their customers. They run 10 dollar per meal entrees during the week which are delicious. I love the shrimp and grits. Good and spicy. The meat here... More

Have eaten before with good results. Ordered shrimp and scallops grilled. They came cold, tough and were obviously not grilled. They looked like they had been cooked days before and made to look grilled. The veggies I ordered on the side (trying to stay away from the carbs) were not fresh, green beans looked from a can. The waitress was... More

We were given a gift certificate for Christmas to this restaurant. We live in the area, but had never been there. Tried to go for dinner tonight and after we got there it took at least 10 minutes for anyone to acknowledge our existence. They were not busy. Only three tables were occupied. After we finally got seated, we were... More

I really didn't want to go here because the TA reviews were so bad, but someone else set it up so I went quietly. I was very pleasantly surprised to find almost magically competent service. How did one girl keep twenty people from ever running out of tea and water, clear dishes as soon as they were finished, make about... More

We have eaten at the Watermark for years and always enjoy or meal. The food is very good and the service matches the food. Seating is usually immediate which can be hard to find on the beach. In all the years dining there I have once had to send my plate back as the shrimp were totally overcooked. The waitress... More

After having dinner with some friends at the Watermark, I went to Tripadvisor to see what others had said about it. One said that it was dark. That's true. One said that the food is expensive. That's also true. More than one said that the service was slow. I didn't notice as I was having an enjoyable evening with friends.... More

We dined here at the recommendation of a local. We dined on a Wednesday night and were seated around 7:15 pm. The reataurant seemed relaxed and uncrowded, with about 25% of the tables occupied. We ordered drinks, and our meals which were seafood combinations of shrimp and flounder. Salads were delivered within a few minutes. However, our food didn't arrive... More

I went to the watermark after recommendation from a local neighbor. I was terribly disappointed one of the worst experiences in years in a dining environment. Food is good but way over priced for the portions you receive. The service was absolutely the worst. It took over one hour and a half to get our food while we watched two... More

My husband and I ate at the Watermark Restaurant on our first night in Atlantic Beach. It looked OK from the outside, but when we sat down and received the menus, we were shocked at the prices. This restaurant is right next door to the Food Lion, so it is not in an exclusive environment and the prices seemed very... More
