Had a great meal on an early Thursday evening. Valet was complimentary and quick. Server was friendly and attentive. We ordered hush puppies (outstanding), the Waterman Burger (very good), and a few kids meals (no complaints from them). The Orange Crushes are legit; I had two and would have gladly drank more on such a hot day.
Chesapeake Bay crab cakes fried were great. Misses enjoyed the Waterman's burger with lump crab on top. Great views of the beach, with great food. The crab dip is on point! Definitely recommend if you're in the area or close enough to enjoy the outing. Worth the 45m wait 👍
While searching for a restaurant on the VA Beach Oceanfront, I was lured to Waterman's by their Buffalo Tuna Bites apperizer. They happened to be on their happy hour menu, and our server, Paolo (or Paulo, not sure of spelling), suggested my friend and I try them blackened. We ended up getting them both ways, and they did not disappoint! We got a second order of them buffalo style, and my friend took an order to-go for her boyfriend to try. The margaritas were great, as was the Greek Salmon Salad, which my friend and I shared. For dessert, Paolo suggested I try their Cookie Monster Ice Cream Sandwich, which was their seasonal flavor at the time, and was served with a side of whipped cream and chocolate sauce. It was fantastic, and a perfect way to end a perfect meal! The food and view of the oceanfront combined with the exceptional service made this experience one to remember. As someone who has been in the restaurant business for 20 years, I really appreciate a great dining experience (which you don't find too often). A special kudos to Paolo, who was very personable, attentive, and gave great suggestions. Overall, this dining experience was better than I could have anticipated, and my friend and I were so glad we choose this location. I will most certainly return on my next visit to the oceanfront! Thank you Waterman's 🙂
I really love this place! The service is great. The valet is hassle free. The crowd is fun! The view is beautiful. And everything that I have ever ordered is delicious! I'm crushing on the Greek Salmon Salad. It is a flavor party for the palette! A must visit.
Dinner was great at Watermans. My Family and I had 5 Dinner plates. We had 2 everything seafood plates 2 captain platters and a crab imperial dish. The food was cooked to perfection. Non of us had anything over cooked or under cooked. The plates were all reasonably priced and lots of food. Natalie was a great server always kept our drinks full. She asked how we were doing just the right amount of time and when we were done she took our dishes as we finished. Love the valet service especially at Virginia beach the parking in Virginia beach is terrible though. Especially the summer months. It was nice not to worry about parking. This is a great experience.
