I love watermans food atmosphere and staff I only have one complaint and that's the manager on the floor very rude to such a repeat customer like myself his persona on the floor is very unprofessional and I have considered not going back because of this issue but the bartenders and servers are so great and so genuine that's what brings me back everytime

“So - so food”
Reviewed March 9, 2014 via mobile

Ocean view was nice, however food was just ok. Nothing spectacular. The free valet was hectic and the service didn't seem too excited about being there. The price was a little much for the quality of food.

“Solid beach dining”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

The food is ok. Service is always really good and it has decent food. I would recommend the she crab soup and a Bloody Mary. Nice casual restaurant and great ocean view.
