After passing the location a few times we stopped for dinner. Wish we had stopped here our first night. The fresh fish special was swordfish. My husband had the blackened swordfish plate, my son the swordfish sandwich, and I had the fried swordfish appetizer with a Thai sauce. I also had a bowl of cream of crab soup.a wonderful meal!

If you like a take out order, for 24.99 you get chicken, shrimp and three sides. We fed six people with this order. Buy it every time we visit Ocean City.

Everything the chefs prepared was fresh and delicious, served by a very nice waitress. The crab dip is a "must have", a very large appetizer portion for one, perfect for two. The shrimp with crab...

My husband and I have eaten lunch here on our last three visits to Ocean City. With so many restaurants in town, the fact that we return to Waterman's says something. You can not beat the taste of fresh seafood and you will find it here for sure. One would expect to pay a lot more for this quality of... More
