Went for a beer and had some nice pizza. The place is packed on the weekend and has a pub vibe with all the TVs and sports vibe.

We had a couple of other options but ended up at Watermans. I wanted to try a shrimp taco, but didn't want to order three of them and find out I didn't like them so I asked if I could order one shrimp and two chicken. I was told straightaway that it was not possible. There was no 'I'm sorry'... More

Service was great, very accommodating!! And the hummus and poke was delish. I'd also recommend the cucumber salad, very simple but fresh.

Stopped by for a drink and light snack while walking the area. Nice to sit outside and enjoy the area. Service was very good, food was good. We were there for Happy Hour, so there were several great deals on food and beverage.

The $12 Cali Burger & Kona Beer sandwich board special grabbed my attention amongst the many choices on the strip after a sunset stroll. How could one go wrong with a Hawaiian style burger. This had to be one of the blandest pieces of ground beef I have ever tasted topped with a limp grilled pineapple wedge and soggy lettuce.... More

Hermosa Beach was happening during Easter Sunday and we were doing our 30 mile bike ride of the strand that day. Decided to stop at Waterman's for some drinks and food. Service was good, food was ok and they have this special Bottle of Champagne and OJ so you can make your own mimosa for $12. Sitting outside on their... More

Loved the vibe of the place, Mai Tai's were ahhhmazing and the outdoor seating was wonderful. Food was decent, not the best, atmosphere and location made it worth it though.

The hummus plate as a huge hit and the ceaser delish!! They were both on the happy hour menu 5-7pm... super yummy, pretty good service, but most definitely a bar, we were... More

Had dinner with the kids at this bar. Definitely a bar, so be ready. Loud and a potential borderline intoxicated patron. My kids are teens, so they can handle it and not complain. The food & service were good, though. I'd been here before for lunch, so I knew we'd be happy.

Most beach bars are not known for their food. Watermans is no exception. Its all about location in downtown Hermosa Beach. A few steps from one of the best beaches in all of California. Everything is within walking distance within a small but very busy downtown. Hermosa pier steps away. Watermans will be busy depending on when you go there... More
