We've been making Waterman's a regular stop on our annual August Assateague/OC visits for over 20 years. It's always been a highlight of our stays. We've been doing the AYCE since it was less than half the current $35 price (withOUT snow crab legs). We were surprised to learn about the fire and rebuild. We didn't make the trip this... More

We all had the AYCE crabs and shrimp, you get some corn and they offer bay seasoning and other items. The thing I did not like was again when you get cocktail sauce, it was prepackaged into little cups and not fresh and gelatinous...

We called ahead to reserve a dozen jumbo crabs and they were worth it. Was worried because it's near the end of the season but we were not disappointed. Very full and spiced perfectly. We did have to wait about 15 minutes after we got there even though they were pre-ordered but at least they were hot. Great service by... More

The last time I was at Waterman's - before the fire that forced them to renovate - it was awesome. But this time....not so much. We sat ourselves (as the sign indicated) and waited over 10 minutes without a single acknowledgement from anyone. It wasn't even that busy. We left and came back later and only waited about 5 minutes... More

We hadn’t been to Waterman’s since it was rebuilt and wanted to give it a try. It is located in West Ocean City and touts a seafarer’s ambience with a casual, family-friendly atmosphere. The menu boasts a wide variety of seafood and land lover dishes, as well as gluten free items, and more! We dined on a crab cake entrée... More

Great food at a good price, very clean and neat, friendly staff. Anyone that comes here looking for the OLD WATERMANS will be somewhat disappointed I am sure, but understand that the changes were made because it burnt too badly to save the old place. Enjoy a great meal.

Away from the beach along Rte 50 a mile or so is a great casual seafood restaurant. It looks new and I overheard a customer say it has been renovated after a not to distant fire. Table tops were stainless steel to better accommodate crab busting hammering. There is a full bar for adult beverages and a very complete seafood... More

After spending a perfect September day on the beach at Assateague National Park, we picked up several dozen large crabs. Spiced just right, these plump crustaceans were full of sweet crab meat. We were packing to go, so can't comment on the service, but the bar was full at 5pm and looked like a fun place to hang on a... More

We loved the old Waterman's with its homey, wood décor and low lighting. The new Waterman's is gaudy plastic and vinyl with too bright lighting and all booths - no tables. When we arrived we were told we had a 10 to 15 minute wait which was fine. Finally, after 35 minutes we were seated in a booth with very... More

Service was very good. Good value for the price. We went there for the seafood but we don't eat crabs which was what everyone around us was eating/ enjoying.
