We came here for date night and were very impressed. The indoor bar was just about to close, but the bartender was very nice and welcomed us to stay in the lounge area after making a great Old Fashioned. The music was great, and we loved the atmosphere!

This is what you'd expect from a beach-side bar with a modern twist on socializing....lounge furniture instead of the ole' standard tables and chairs arrangement; floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the water takes full advantage of the location; fireside area for the nights you've got the sunburn-chill. We stopped for drinks and appetizers and the place if just Fun!

Great rooftop bar with a wonderful view of the Stone Pony Summer Stage. Bartenders were impressive. Drinks were good. Would visit again.

They have a great, atmosphere, music, and crowd. I love going to this place! A good variety of appetizers at decent prices, pleasant staff, and comfortable decor makes for a very enjoyable evening. It is a great place for an early off the beach drink or to dance the night away.

Roof top bar with indoor and outdoor seating. Very good service. The drinks were a little pricey but delicious. You can hear the music on the Stone Pony summer stage.

Right on the boardwalk and overloooking the ocean, this place can get crowded on a Saturday night....but our recent visit was very enjoyable. There's not really a dance floor, but around midnight if the music is good, the crowd dances wherever it can....there's a nice bar and large seating area outside on a deck, and the bar is well-stocked with...

My go-to for a classy bar / lounge in the area. I've come here many times now and will continue to go. Never had a bad experience. The inside is nice, with comfortable chairs and a fireplace. There are also a few balconies, the main one with an outdoor bar and views both east (right on the ocean) and west.... More

My husband and I visited Watermark during Happy Hour. The drinks are terrific and made with quality alcohol. The small plates are average, but everything tastes better when you're looking out at the beautiful Atlantic ocean. The comfy couches and fireplace are perfect for an upscale bar that overlooks the water. The waitress was excellent and had great energy. This... More
