We visited today. Shannan was our waitress. She is fantastic and deserves a raise. Whatever they are paying her is not enough. We started with soup, mussels and oysters. Everything was amazing and delish. Fresh food great drinks. Service was on point. Then we had...the seafood quesadilla and shrimp Caesar salad. All excellent.More

We've been going to Waterman's for six years now. It's the first place we go for dinner when traveling to Rock Hall. When traveling the Eastern Shore, you want seafood, and they have a wide selection. My lady savored Maryland crab soup and fish tacos,...while I indulged on locally caught rockfish, fries, and pickled beets. The portions are so large, there is never any room for dessert. When we visited they were very short-handed on staff, yet still managed to get food out hot. Seems like every time we go, Sharon is our server. She never gets flustered and always manages a smile. Great service.More

We’ve eaten here 99 + 1 times and have never gotten skunked on their fresh & delicious steamed crabs until this visit. Not their fault by any means as there just are no crabs being caught right now. We had a great time nonetheless enjoying...shrimp, wings, burgers, tacos and more than a few ‘refreshments’. A favorite and a must go-to whenever in Rock Hall!More

We enjoyed our dinner of crab cakes and hushpuppies here. Despite being short staffed, the service was friendly and attentive. The atmosphere by the bay was wonderful!

The staff was welcoming and attentive. We loved our meals - crab soup, stuffed shrimp, and fried green tomatoes. We plan to visit again when we stay in Rock Hall.

Whenever you call and ask if they have AYCE crabs over the phone they always play games. “I don’t know” is a stupid answer to give your local customers. Figure your restaurant out if you have no clue what food you have available to serve....The owners and/or management here have never made this place very welcoming and out patience is wearing thin. Time to find a new placeMore

Food was delicious. I loved sitting on the deck and watching boats coming and going while enjoying our dinner. We were there on weeknights, but I believe they have live music on weekends. Definitely a great place to eat while in Rock Hall!
