Food was pretty good. Our waitress, Sharon, was amazing! Very patient and helpful in answering all our questions and when we kept changing our minds or adding things. View would be beautiful during the day

They have different crab options, and we've enjoyed each one that we've had. We really like the atmosphere here, which is the thing that keeps us coming back.

They get top marks because of their amazing location in Rock Hall Harbor and the outdoor deck/patio is always a great time. However - we were there on an overnight boat stay in mid-October, so ate inside the restaurant. Very average food, the dinner buffet...More

The raw oysters and crab cakes are the best. Secret in the crab cakes is ground corn flakes! Forget the crab soups...couldn't find any crab, just Old Bay seasoning and vegetables! Also their specialty grilled/baked oysters are sloppily done and lacking in taste. We went...More

The fried oysters were delicious. Great meaty crab cakes. Beautiful view of the sunset over the bay. Pleasant and friendly service. Overall a great value for a wonderful dinner.

I love fried clams, but don't like them when they are greasy or a bit sandy. Waterman's were neither ... they had a lovely cornmeal batter, were tender, and were not overcooked. Thank you for a great treat! Bon Appetit!
