Lunch with girlfriends for a weekend visit. Small parking lot but has valet parking with friendly service. She crab soup is wonderful and a choice of salads are a great lunch combo. They offer daily specials and offer both inside and outside covered patio dining. Long lines if you don't get there early but worth the wait!

There are so many places to chose from, so glad we went here. Place is very poplar, but large and can accomodate a lot of people. Food is fresh and the restaurant supports the local fishermen.

We went to celebrate our anniversary with family. The steaks are delicious, the seafood pasta dishes wash yummy, and the BBQ chicken was moist and very good. We let the valet park our car and after dinner had a nice walk along the boardwalk.

We go to Waterman's Grille maybe once or twice a season and are always pleased with the service and quality of food. I enjoy the seafood entrees and the drinks are always bountiful. The valet car parking service is also 5 star. Keep up the good work guys.

We had dinner here. Hands down the best seafood restaurant I have eaten in. The seafood is locally caught and perfectly prepared. Free valet parking is a plus. The menu is a little pricey, but, for the quality of the food, the service and the atmosphere, it is a good value.
