“One of the best restaurants on the Eastern Shore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

Terrific restaurant. We eat at the Watermen's at least once a week. We love it. We recently relocated here from the Philadelphia area which is quite the foody city so we have lots to compare it against and it can hold its own with many restaurants in bigger cities. The price is reasonable for the quality food you receive. If you come to the Eastern Shore you must try it. Best crab cakes I have ever eaten anywhere. Also the owners are two Johnson & Wales trained chefs which explains why the quality of the food is good. If you know what good food taste like then you know they have the best food in town. The only suggestion---bring in higher quality wines that are also available by the glass and offer the option of having the appropriate type of wine glass for the wine selection.

“nice and small”

They have great food and good service. It is a small restaurant, so in the summer I would make a reservation.

“Good Choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2013

The Waterman's Inn is by far the best restaurant in Crisfield. They never fail to deliver great food they always have a good variety of specials each day to choose from. You can't go wrong with any choice. The desserts are out of this world, the problem is what to pick, there are so many to choose from.

“Excellent food, annoying locals”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013

The food was delicious although quite expensive; for the price we paid I could have done without the idiot at the next table over drunkenly spewing political virtiole in front of my embarrassed stepson. Eastern shore traditions are great, however ignorant people never make good dinner company.
