The place is near the water. The seafood was great. Stream shrimp was delicious and 1/2 lb was very filling.

Waterman Grill was a decent place to eat, a rather broad menu but just plain side dishes. If you are town for only one night be sure to hit 309 bistro before the grill. Both were good.

We have dined here several times, had several different meals, and enjoyed each of them. The stuffed mushrooms are tasty as are the crab dip and crackers. The meal portions are more than plentiful.

We were a party of 6 and wanted something hearty and delicious. Waterman Grill was a home run. We had many choices to chose from but we decided on one of the "special" for that day. Truly, it was Special!

I don't recall outdoor seating. Best to confirm that with the restaurant.
