Excellent Service, Wonderful Food

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.

We were looking for a nice seafood buffet for dinner and checked out reviews and they were not very favorable. Where we normally get our Seafood Buffet was closed for the season. 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

This was our first visit to Waterman's since they rebuilt a year or so ago. It was a late-lunch for us and we ordered their bowls of cream of crab soup - it was the best that we had in Ocean City that weekend. We had had cream of crab at several other restaurants, most of which were very good;... More

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
