Very average - and so disappointing to see how much they have to work with - could be a great place. The restaurant needs a good cleaning and redecorating.

Food was very average; the bar was disappointing and the wine choices were from the grocery store.

Edenton needs a good restaurant.

Had dinner at this very quaint restaurant. Located close to the water downtown. I had the Carolina Fried Seafood platter and it was excellent. The Hush Puppies are great. We had the steamed clams and they were really good. I will definitely return to this location next time in Edenton.

Waterman's has fairly good food, though their prices are fairly high for what you get. It seems to be a well-established restaurant that has become somewhat complacent; the menu is standard fare, seafood and steaks, prepared adequately, and the service is competent if not outstanding. If you are in Edenton for a period of time, you will undoubtedly eat here at some point, as it really is one of the best restaurants in town.

The restaurant is the gathering place for many of the locals, a good sign that the food will be good. The crab cakes are large, one is plenty unless you have a huge appetite.. My serving of broccoli was huge.

I was looking forward to a seafood grill a block from the water, but what I got was not what I was expecting. It feels more like a bar downstairs, so when then hostess asked about sitting upstairs, I immediately said yes. She sat me at a window table that had a disappointingly-minimal water view. The restaurant was dark and faded, and the food was fine. I had pecan-crusted tilapia that was less impressive than it sounds. There was nothing wrong with the place- it just was what it was.
