Someone recommended Waterman's and I'm so glad the did! We had lunch on the patio with great ocean views and our waitress Elle was awesome! My husband got the Buffalo Tuna bites app and they were great! We both got crab cakes for lunch and they were very good! I would go back in a heartbeat!

Waterman's has terrific food and the service was outstanding. We ate there several times while in Virginia Beach and the She crab soup was great as was the scallops and shrimp. Prices were reasonable for a waterfront table. We will be back next year

Really great food, location, and service. Can't be beat! It's a bit expensive and parking can be an issue although the sometimes offer valet parking. Be prepared to tip cash for valet.

Loved the atmosphere- beachy without being cheesy. Hush puppies were so good and so was the spinach (would have never ordered but the waitress recommended and I'm glad she did). The rest of the food was ok, nothing special. The orange crush was talked up so much that I was slightly disappointed but my husband had a bourbon crush and... More

Waterman's has the best food on the boardwalk and all of Virginia Beach. You can't go wrong with any item on the menu.

Not to mention the orange crushes that... More
