Food was great! Had crab balls for an appetizer, crab cake sandwich and my boyfriend had the tuna sandwich!! All excellent. Service was also great! Bartender was very nice and welcoming. I don't normally write reviews but as a former bartender I had to say this is a great place!!

I am a frequent visitor of Waterman's when visiting my parents who live here. Waterman's never disappoints. I was there for dinner tonight and tried a new menu item: shrimp and grits! It was delicious; Spicy andouille sausage with cheese grits cakes! Spencer our server was attentive and friendly! I'm never disappointed with the food, service and the beautiful view!

This restaurant has a location on the dock to watch the boats and the sunset. The staff is very friendly. We were greeted right away and allowed to choose our table. The crab cake I had was good, plenty of lump crab meat. My husband enjoyed his orange roughy. Our entrees came with a choice of two sides. They were... More

Right on the water, great service, great fries, and the fish is fresh and tasty. I had the blackened ahi tuna tacos. Great sauce! Tuna done just right. We all enjoyed our food thoroughly!

The food was excellent and the view of the bay is gorgeous...especially if you are fortunate enough to be there to watch the sun set.

I stopped-in for a quick bite for dinner after a long day. Sat at the bar, was told several time "we just opened last week" No beer on tap since taps were out of order but bottle beer was cold. Now knowing that they just opened last week, I kept my dinner order simple. I had fish and chips, which... More

We are from Florida and went to the marina to look at a boat that was for sale. To our surprise we fell in love with this town (not the boat) stopped in and chatted for a couple hours with Carole the bartender - she is amazing, fun and a great soul. The oysters were local and great! The dessert... More

Great location on the Rock Hall Bay. Enjoyed the outdoor seating and access to the marina and sailing. Service was excellent. Crabs were fat and tasty. We came back in the evening for dinner since it was the only restaurant that was open. We ordered steak and it was .... a bit tough.

I have never bothered to write a bad review of anything before. Food was bad all three visits, rockfish was dry and over cooked, salad was limp with wilted produce, overcooked veggies with some sort of fat cooked in, even the coleslaw was terrible. Service was bad on the one lunch and two dinners occasions too (wait staff couldn't be... More

Charles, the chef, knows his way around seafood. The oyster sampler plate was a tasty pick. I would like to try a similar crab version. The staff was friendly and the crab house is situated on a lovely spot of the bay.
