I took a friend who is vegetarian to Waterman's for an elegant dinner. We looked at the menu ahead online and there was a Vegetarian Platter on the Entree list. Well, WOW. Talk about extravagant. What was brought out was an enormous tasting platter of every veg side and garnish in the house, with a veg burger. The chef put... More

Have eaten here several times and have had good experiences. Would recommend. Crab cakes, crab soup are excellent. Fish dishes cooked well and delicious.

Waterman’s Inn in Crisfield, MD is a higher end, yet casual restaurant. I say higher end whenever restaurants use real table cloths and serviettes. Yet, you can feel quite comfortable coming in jeans. We stopped in while attending to business in the area and enjoyed ourselves. The atmosphere was subdued and prices are very reasonable. Service was nicely timed and... More

This place gets pretty much Unanimous rave reviews here on Trip Advisor, and now I know why. Last evening (9/16) my wife and I joined her brother and sister in law (both of them are area residents) at the W. Inn for one of the finest meals we've had anywhere (we live in the DC area). Of course fresh seafood... More

We stayed at My Fair Lady and the innkeeper recommended this restaurant. She ensured we had reservations and we arrived on time. Quaint little place with wonderfully prepared dishes. I ordered the seafood in puff pastry which was elegant and scrumptious. My spouse ordered the ribeye which was prepared exactly as ordered and flavorful. The shrimp and cheesy grits appetizer...

Nice restaurant, good menu options. My creme of crab was a bit salty (eat it all, though) and the shrimp and cheesy grits were decent. Attentive service and very friendly. Nice experience.

We have always enjoyed The Watermen's Inn for all the reasons stated in the other reviews. However, last nights experience was disappointing. The scallops were bland and soaked in broth. The crab cakes and mashed potatoes were overly salted. In addition, the first order of potatoes were delivered cold. Another order was promptly delivered piping hot. The vegetable medley was...

Having visited Crisfield for many years I always stop and eat at the Waterman's Inn. The pricing is very reasonable and the menu always has something new. Do not expect "Fast Food" type service. The food is prepared to eat and not to cobble down and run. Lay back, relax and enjoy the ambiance. The Bar is the right size... More

We were trying to stay out of the oppressive heat so we took a ride to Crisfield and stopped here for an early dinner. Since it was mid afternoon, we took advantage of the early bird special. Chose two of five selections and got grilled shrimp and a crab cake. Also came with two sides. Shrimp were grilled nicely and... More
