We swung by Waterman's to pick up dinner and we were not disappointed. We ordered a dozen and half crabs, and also the chicken/shrimp special. The steamed the crabs fresh and we got 9 pieces of fried chicken and a bunch of steamed shrimp. It came with 3 sides and we chose all the salads (potatoe, macaroni, and coleslaw). Everything...

My family and I took a trip to Ocean City a couple of weeks ago, and we ate here one night for dinner after leaving the beach. This establishment was truly amazing. My family and I ordered crab cakes, and they were some of the best that we had ever tasted before. Our waitress was very pleasant and professional, and... More

Oh wow, I had the cream of crab soup and I see why it is award winning. It was amazing. My bf had the chicken and penne which was good too. Our salad was fresh my steak and shrimp was perfect. No room for desserts but I bet I would have liked it too. Our servers name was Joanne, she... More

We visited on a Saturday evening, and although we were told there would be a wait, we were seated within fifteen minutes of arrival. Our waitress was efficient and friendly, very knowledgeable about the menu and market pricing for the specials. The steamed combo (lobster, shrimp, clams) was pronounced excellent; the steamed shrimp dinner had the largest shrimp I had... More

Crab legs and shrimp feasts were the order of the day. Wait times for extra portions was minimal and the staff was on top of refills. Kids portions were large enough to split with smaller children.

We were camping at Castaways and on a rainy day didn't want to cook outside. We found this place had a fried chicken, steamed shrimp and sides take out special. The food was amazing and at a great price to feed a family of 5! Will definitely be a stop on our annual trip to Ocean City every year.

This is one of my must go to when I vacation in Ocean City. If you get here early (before 5:30) you typically don't have a wait, anytime after that plan on waiting at least a half hour. I always get the all you can eat crabs and it also comes with shrimp, corn and hush puppies. Always an enjoyable... More

The award winning crab soup was too salty and the home made potato chips had way too much Old Bay seasoning. The broiled shrimps tasted old and the shrimp salad was tasteless. Not the best experience considering the high price charged. Not what you expect from a seafood restaurant right on the shore.

Thank GerdPo
