My family & I really enjoyed Waterman's. It's very quaint & cozy inside. The servers were very friendly and attentive. The main dishes are a little pricey, however it's worth the price because you get a delicious full meal with great southern sides. Great place and would return!

We had a very nice meal Friday night before a local concert. The snapper and grilled scallops both arrived with fresh garden vegetables.

Had the crab, shrip scallop trio with bake potato. My wife had the Lobster shrimp & Scalllops trio. Both our plates came in a short tme. The restaurant is clean, noise level low enough to carry on normal conversations. Good place to get a good meal

Met locals there as well as tourists. Locals to whom we talked ALL highly recommended, and they weren't wrong! Best meal I had our 4-day trip. Ordered 6 oysters on the half shell, and they ended up giving me 10! Great service, great food, and great location. Who can ask for anything more?

Excellent all around. Service could have not been any better. Soft she'll crabs were excellent with a sauce that complimented. Salad dressings made there were thick and flavorable.

Had big expectations for Waterman's. It was recommended to us by the people at Scotch Hall golf course, so we had a 30+ minute drive to get there. Downtown Edenton is really attractive, and the grill has a nice presence, but things just didn't go well. Our dishes were the steamer combos and the fish specialty. We got an appetizer... More

I took my wife and two guests to Waterman's. The service was fine but the food definitely poor. Two of us had grilled flounder. The fish was mushy and tasteless. . The clam chowder very average. The hush puppies were as hard as golf balls. One member of my party order rock fish which was firm but could have used... More

The prime rib is my favorite here! I crave it and the horseradish sauce that comes with it! Also, this is one of few restaurants I have found that make their own Caesar salad dressing ( the kind with anchovy paste) that I absolutely love! Atmosphere is awesome and lovely for a couples date or family dining! Love love Watermans!

I had read all the great reviews of Waterman's Grill and so looking forward to eating here. Service was great but the hostess seemed bored and kept playing with her hair. There is seating as you come in and then more seating a few steps up and then an upstairs. I went with the shrimp scampi as I had just... More
