My husband and I came here for lunch. It is VERY BUSY. They will take your name and # and text you when your table is ready. We only waited around 10 mins. Once seated, Stephanie was prompt with our service. She knew the menu well and had a great personality! I had a calamari appetizer (which I ate before... More

Excluding Blue Seafood and Spirits, this is hands down my favorite restaurant. The food was amazing here. They have a large selection of foods and each one is well worth a try.

We went here for fresh Crablegs and definitely were pleased. Ordered the appetizer of 2 clusters for $25. We went after 8 pm so there was no wait time and service was good.

Every trip we make to the beach we stop here! The wait for your table is well worth it. Their drinks are wonderful, and you get a nice view of the waterfront.

We went expecting delicious fresh seafood, but instead were very disappointed. The entrees are all just reheated frozen items, and nothing was freshly made or cooked. Very commercialized. We had the seafood platter and the blackened tuna. The platter had very little seafood and lots of shells mixed into the lump crab meat. The sides of green beans were very... More

My daughter and I visited Waterman's Surfside Grille after it was recommended to us. It was wonderful! Our server was very friendly and made great recommendations. We could not ask for better seafood or a better view!

Good food and lively atmosphere. Ask for extra lemon if you order the Just Seafood. The shrimp with the Avocado Salmon are cocktail shrimp - cold not hot- I was a bit surprised biting into it but it was still very good. Will try the mozz sticks next time - they looked amazing.
