Just tried to have dinner at watermans. We finally got our food. It was very plain and uninspiring. After dinner was completed, I finally got the beer I ordered before dinner. Nice location but everything else is terrible

Good friendly place on the pier. Got a couple buckets of beer, and some cheap tacos during happy hour. Quick service, not to loud, and people watch while sitting outside. I would recommend stopping in having a coolndown after a day in the sun.

The menu looks cool, the place looks good but... We did have to wait almost one hour to get just a part of our order. We did finish our lunch and my daughter was still waiting for her chicken fingers ! The food is not great at all and there are so much restaurants in the street that you should... More

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.
