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

He said that... More

It's our 1st visit and we brought my wife's parents here for dinner. The Steamed Littleneck Clams, Crab Dip, Cream of Crab Soup were very good. The 2 of us that had the Snow Crab Legs (1 lb) were disappointed....small legs and over cooked or too long in the steamer. The other 2 confirmed that their Steamed Shrimp and Crab... More

My husband and I, my cousin and his wife dined here recently. I hadn't seen the new decor and it's really nice. H and I had crab cake sandwiches and they were scrumptious! Real Maryland crab with not a lot of silly add-ins or sauces on top like they do in my area. Just tartar sauce. I had green beans... More

We found this place a couple years ago on vacation and have been coming here since. It has never disappointed. We have a few things that we always order when we come: Cream of Crab Soup, The blackened scallops, stuffed lobster tail, homemade hush puppies. This time around we took a chance on the crab stuffed pretzel which also gets... More

9-21-2016 Waterman’s Seafood I have been coming to Waterman’s for about the last 25+ years for AYCE. That last time I ate crabs here they were some of the poorest tasting crabs I had ever had. We decided to try again today and found them to be somewhat better. The first batch were kind of bland and watery but the... More

Dined here for the 1st time this evening. The service and quality of the food was good. I decided on a cup of Maryland Crab soup and the Broiled Seafood entrée which consisted of 3 scallops, 4 shrimp, 1 filet, and 1 crab cake and as sides, I chose the green beans and coleslaw. I thought the prices were a... More
