We had a party of 20 and two adjacent tables. Our dinners were beautifully presented with succulent seafood, fresh veggies and wonderful cocktails. Service was fast and food was hot. Good kids menu too. Best part is the wonderful beach views! Valet parking is available.

I was going off some reviews that I received as a guest at the Breaker Resort, as well as those found on Trip Advisor and Yelp. We were staying in Virginia Beach. I had read of waits in excess of an hour so I wasn't surprised to see a line. It took us about 5 minutes to get to the... More

The food is very good, and the view of the ocean ab No boardwalk are what visitors crave and the locals enjoy all year around. Love the fish tacos, blackened tuna and baby backs. Service is very good, and the prices moderate. A winner.

I get the Waterman's pasta everytime I go to Va Beach and this time was just as good as the others. However, my husband got the fried shrimp platter and he was not impressed and still was hungry after we left....lol. They gave him about 8 medium shrimp and maybe 10 fries (no joke) for $16. We went to Chix... More

My husband and I live here in VA Beach. If for some reason we had to pick ONE restaurant and that was the only one we could ever go out to eat at for the next year, we would pick Watermans. It has been one of the best spots and favorite spot for the 8 years I have lived here.... More

This place is packed especially on the weekend. We waited an hour and 20 min. We were able to put our names on the waiting list and they call you when a table is ready, so we went on the boardwalk and watched a show while we waited. Otherwise I wouldn't have waited so long. The food was really good,... More

From the outside seating, to watching people on the boardwalk, the orange crushes are incredible. You've got to try the fish tacos, the hummus platter excellent.

One of best grilled tuna dinners in Va Beach. The crab dip is awesome and you can't leave without drinking a few Orange Crushes!
