It is not easy to find a consistent, really fine, restaurant in Ocean City open all year round. Waterman's is our choice for good food at a good price with excellent, fun staff. This place serves the finest fish and chips with salad (even better than what we had in England!)

My sister took me to Waterman's for my birthday, Nov. 11th. We ordered large steam crabs, french fries and hush puppies. DELICIOUS! The restaurant is clean, friendly atmosphere, and nice place to take any age. Our server was excellent. My sister and I were there 3 years ago and was satisfied then and now. Recommend to all.

We stopped in for a quick bite at the bar. We each ordered the cream of crab soup and one of the specials. One of the soups was barely warm, the other was hotter. We sent the cold one back and it came back a little warmer, but not hot. Other than that, the service was just so slow....

Took the family to Watermans OC for my wife's birthday. Service was good. Appetizers were great. I'd say the appetizers were better than the meal. I had steamed combo with grilled asparagus. Which was good but not great. It was fresh but under seasoned. Little on the bland side. The asparagus were outstanding. Wife had stuffed flounder with crab imperial.... More

I took notice of this restaurant as we were driving to Castaways Campground. The building is new and attractive. I liked the décor and the color scheme of the inside waiting area and dining room. The service was good but I found my fried oysters to be overcooked, I have to admit I was disappointed with our food.

Waterman's Seafood has the BEST Seafood Alfredo I have had!! It is packed with shrimp, scallops, crabmeat and lobster!! It has a delicious cream sauce that has spinach and tomatoes lightly mixed in! They also have awesome Stuffed Flounder! We have always been extremely happy with everything we have ever gotten! Well done Waterman's!!

we went to Waterman's for first time in summer 2015. It was flat out amazing and i had to go back during vacation summer 2016. Well unfortunately not so good 2016. Service went downhill and quality of food no were near what we had previous year. Not sure what happened but I may not go back next year.

I had been to Waterman's Seafood in the past to buy fish or crab cakes at the seafood market. Their seafood is always good quality so we decided to have dinner in their restaurant. They have a complete full service menu with daily specials. The food was very well prepared and seasoned. Everything was served piping hot (something you don't... More
