My husband and I love this restaurant. The service is always good. Sometimes there is a wait but it is well worth it. Food is delicious, and the orange crushes are so good. Looking forward to returning this year.

When we have guests visiting, we take them to Waterman's! It's an essential Virginia Beach Restaurant that serves up incredible seafood. While there may be a wait due it's popularity, it is always worth it!

The staff and service were great. The food was really good. The seafood and steaks are premium. I would encourage reservations as it gets busy fast near dinner time.

Tuesday night is the time to go if you like crab cakes. During the off season they have a crab cake special meal for $12.00 and it is great. Their special drink is an orange crush, also very good. The valet parking is free.

Waterman's Surfside Grille captures a slice of coastal living for the true flavor of Virginia Beach! Family owned and operated since 1981, Waterman's serves only the freshest seafood, steaks, and ribs. Serving lunch and dinner daily and brunch on Sundays, we offer indoor and outdoor dining overlooking the ocean, as well as a patio boardwalk bar. It's not a trip to Waterman's without a taste of our signature She Crab Soup and Original Orange Crush cocktail!
