Family owned and operated since 1981, Waterman's serves only the freshest seafood, steaks, and ribs.

It's not a trip to Waterman's without a taste of our signature She Crab Soup and Original Orange Crush cocktail!

Waterman's is famous, but I'm not sure why. I guess because it's been here a while. The service was excellent, even as busy as they were, the view is great, and the decor is nice. But why do you come to a restaurant? Well, the food. The menu is very eclectic. Don't let the name "Surfside" fool you; it's not just seafood, so for all of you seafood-haters, there's something for you. I got a pasta/marinara/seafood dish, which was very good, except the pasta was a bit overcooked and it was wayyyy over-sauced. They should probably narrow down their menu and improve the quality a bit; other than that, I have no reason to not go again.

My wife had the crab cake entree and I had the crab ripper sandwich. Both were awesome. Great view of the ocean and excellent service. The restaurant has such a classic look and feel that you just want to hang out and take your time. Reasonable prices and valet parking. Sunday through Thursday are he best nights to go if you can.

My sister and I always eat here for lunch when we get to Va Beach. They have good she crab soup. Our custom is to have soup with their crab cake sandwich to start of the week-end great combination

Oceanfront view with decent food. We had pasta and a chicken sandwich- both were average. Valet parking- gratuities expected. We valet parked because there was no parking available in their lot. When we came out, our car was parked 10 feet from us, but we still had to get the valet to get it for us. That was annoying.

We enjoyed this offer, arriving about 6:30 pm, both of us had the 8-oz sirloin with 2 sides. They were done perfectly, 1 well done (shudder) and 1 med rare. The fries were hot and crispy and the mashed potatoes were ok (instant), and the fresh mixed vegetables were fine. Service was good with friendly staff. Did not have anything from the bar. All in all a good experience and would recommend for the price.

It was a little noisy, a close-by screaming child was a unpleasant, but they can be found anywhere. Maybe eating a little later would solve this.
