Visited here for happy hour but they didn't have a lot of the liquor store that I like to partake of such as Brandy or Cognac so we settled for an Orange Crush, and a Ruby Red Grapefruit Crush. They were tasty but the happy food menu was limited so we ordered some steamed shrimp. They were average but a... More

We had a family group of 6 on Sunday to Waterman's for their Easter Brunch. The upstairs table by the window was fantastic with a view of the beach. Our service was good.

We ate here on Easter and abosuletly loved it. I have to say that the hushpuppies were the best we ever had. The staff was very friendly and our server was excellent. The atmosphere here was the best at the beach!! Everything was perfect!!!

The seafood here was as good as any on the beach but the portions were notably smaller than Chix or Mahi Mah's. Had to go grab another bite to eat a couple hours later, unlike when I ate at the other two I mentioned. Highly recommend the Just Seafood (if you're not all that hungry).

WE drove over from DC to visit friends and wanted a great local seafood lunch. Read reviews so chose this place. Discovered we arrived for their Sunday buffet. The only seafood on the buffet was boiled shrimp to go with some very bland grits to "make your own" grits and shrimp. The waitress told me they had salmon but it... More

We went on sat night 4/15/17 for my bday. Even tho it was a holiday wkend, and that it was extremely busy, our experience was fantastic. We were told it was an hour wait, which it was... but well worth it. Food and service were great! Would return.

A bit on the touristy side but the food and service is decent even given the chaos of Saturday night dining. The fish tacos were delicious with salsa and rice.
