Mediocre at Best

I had high hopes for the place, but was definitely disappointed when I left. The fried items - shrimp, fish and clam strips were either over fired or under fired - especially the clam strips which were almost inedible.

I rate a restaurant if I really wanted to go back there again. I would go back to this restaurant in a heart beat. The food isn't the cheapest place in town but then it is better than what I would call trough food at all those all you can eat places. We had a gift certificate for the place... More

A menu for everyone, and prices that won't break the budget. You can't ask for anything more than that. The crab dip, and cream of crab soup are mouth watering!

My family and fiancé had the all you can crabs, and I had tilapia. Everything was amazing! I will be going back when I visit Ocean City.

Waterman's Seafood Co, had some great reviews so we gave it a try. Arrived around 5 pm. Promptly got seated in a back room with no other patrons... More

This restaurant has been renovated so it is much brighter, but I don't find it very comfortable. The food is just not as good as it was in years past. We got the AUCE which now includes fried chicken, shrimp, steamed crabs, and hush puppies and cost about $35 a person. Some of the crabs smelled of ammonia which meant... More

Did Sysco give them the award? Their cream of crab is not homemade.....housemade, meaning they added the milk, water, sherry, or whatever else the package asks for. My nephew worked there,,would not eat there,,tells me something.

This is a newly enlarged restaurant. The first time we went here it was for dinner, in season. While the food was good, it was soooo noisy. Many people come here, with family and friends for the pleasure of smashing cooked crabs with a mallet. Unfortunately the tables are all topped with metal and between the mallets and the voices...

My husband and I used to eat at Waterman's alot before the fire. So for my birthday, we decided to try the newly remodeled restaurant and eat the AUCE crab feast. I called that morning to check to see if they did have the AUCE feast and was told that yes they did and you received $5.00 off all day.... More
