Food was average, I had the lunch fish tacos and my wife the salmon salad. The view of the beach and outdoor seating was great!

The crab dip appetizer was excellant. The Mahi Mahi was deliciously prepared perfectly and the apple crisp was delightfully prepared. I will definitely visit here on my next return trip to this area. It was a true experience.

Waterman’s is a top recommendation for friends and family visiting Va Beach. Great views of the ocean and people watching on the boardwalk. Food is consistently great and the Orange Crush is a MUST.
