Annual trip to OC not complete without a Waterman's visit. Completely rebuilt after last summwrs fire the place is clean and well organized. We had me MN u items and all was good except oysters on half shell. Poorly prepared and very small they where not even cut loose. All in all, super menu and good people.

We went to Waterman's based on a family recommendation. We arrived on a Friday afternoon around 3:00PM, and the place was nearly empty. As former residents of Maryland, we were there for one thing and one thing only: the MD blue crabs. We both ordered the all-you-can-eat feast that included steamed shrimp, corn on the cob, hushpuppies, and of course,... More

We went recently on our trip to Ocean City and left without a lasting impression that would make us want to return again. The food was overcooked and then was served warm and our waiter had to be told two or three times before he would bring us what we needed.

My company used an upstairs room for a meeting and lunch. The staff was helpful, pleasant and accommodating. Lunch was served quickly, even with a large group of about 35 people. The crabs were nicely sized, and other lunches had large portions. The crab dip is wonderful!

We stopped here on a Sunday afternoon arrival in OC. Lots of cars, looked promising. Restaurant spotless (new, last fall following a fire). Hostess was apologetic for lack of service (she was seventeen and left to make excuses?) but I said we were in no big hurry. So, led to a table... where we grew older waiting for anything... give...

My lady friend and I were looking for a place to eat lunch today and passed Waterman's marque with a flashing sign that said "Fish and Chips - $5.99" which is a good price, so we went in. We are long-time locals and had eaten there prior to the renovation-fire. I ate there once in the past 20 years and... More

We came back to OC. This is the best seafood in OC. Eaten here many times and is still the best. The place was renovated after the fire and the decor is beautiful. Never had a bad meal.

We had been here before several times and were disappointed when last June they were still rebuilding. We had dinner there this past week and just felt the food was not what we were used to. The greens in my salad were wilted and tastless. The crab cake was very smalland chewy from too much breading. My husband had the... More

We have stopped at Waterman’s several times in the last few weeks. It is quickly becoming one of our favorite places. Waterman’s features a happy hour daily, and all day (11-7) on Sunday. We always go between 5 and 7 to take advantage of the specials. On our first visit, Crista ordered what has become her staple, the fried oysters.... More

This past weekend, my family and I set out to eat dinner on the bay to watch the sunset in Ocean City, however the wait times for several restaurants were more than we wanted, so we ventured across the Route 50 bridge and took a chance on Waterman's. We were not disappointed. We were seated immediately. The service was friendly... More
