We are so sad... Not only was the lobster great, but the PIES! THE PIES!!! This was such a perfect setting. Right on the water. Delicious everything! Relax, have some wine and breathe in the salty air. We arrived at our campground, in a rush...More

In my opinion, you go to Waterman's for three things: lobster, pie and the view. I'm a local. I normally just get a lobster or two from a lobsterman and cook them myself. I very rarely go out for one. That being said I make...More

So lucky I caught it open the last day of the season. Came here three years ago and it was the first place I stopped when I got to Maine. Friendly staff. Fresh lobster. Yummy

Our first stop this year after arriving in the MidCoast was at our favorite place, Waterman's Beach. It was with some sadness that we stopped by having learned they were closing on Sept. 4 after 30 years of operation. We had a great lunch and...More

Went there this past Wednesday for steamers, lobster rolls and crab rolls. The crab roll was good, sweet and flavorful, the lobster roll was just ok as the meat was somewhat bland. The steamers were truly disappointing! They were much too large and full of...More
