Three people got fish and chips and all greatly enjoyed it. I got the steamed seafood platter with a small lobster, shrimp, muscles and clams. Came with 2 sides I got veg of the day and baked potato. Gluten Free and no Soy since I got it all steamed. It was excellent. Service was very good.

We decided to try it here since the reviews were very good. Everyone loved what they ordered. The only issue we had was they sat us upstairs and I had lug my baby up the stairs in his carrier and my one year old. Otherwise the décor is really nice and the food was great.

Choices, choices upon recommendations from locals we checked out waterman ' s you can purchase live crabs to go or have them cooked and take them away. We purchased the chicken deal for the kids (as they do not like crabs). We also got a real good deal on the crabs and took them back to the timeshare. You have... More

We would always return to certain restaurants for lunch or dinner...Waterman's was our favorite for lunch. Nothing fancy however the Crab Soup and Crab Cakes were always exceptional. Each visit we would stop... More

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....
