Description: Waterman's Surfside Grille captures a slice of coastal living for the true flavor of Virginia Beach! Family owned and operated since 1981, Waterman's serves only the freshest seafood, steaks, and ribs. Serving lunch and dinner daily and brunch on Sundays, we offer indoor and outdoor dining overlooking the ocean, as well as a patio boardwalk bar. It's not a trip to Waterman's without a taste of our signature She Crab Soup and Original Orange Crush cocktail!

Went with a large group of people and they sat us at a large round table with a Lazy Susan which was perfect when appetizers were being passed around. I ordered the mac and cheese and the portion was quite small, but I should have guessed that based on the price. I did have fish tacos which were very good. I am not a fish taco person (but figured if I am at the beach why not?), but I would get them again. The original orange crush drink is very good and if you are of age, a must have. Service was very good and the atmosphere was energetic and lively.

Thank you for the review! Our fish tacos are definitely a local favorite! I hope you come back soon to try all three options; coconut shrimp, fried fish or blackened tuna tacos!

A local friend chose this for our nice dinner out. We sat out on the enclosed patio and enjoyed the waning day from our table. We shared an order of fried mozzarella sticks (good but nothing "wow") and stuck with seafood entrees. I had Just Seafood, hubby went with the Fried Butterflied Jumbo Shrimp, and our friend indulged in the Bronzed Yellowfin Tuna. All the entrees were very good, with a bit of creativity to set them apart. The house wine (red) was only so-so. We would certainly go back. Our server was excellent - friendly and attentive without being overly so.

We have been to Waterman's many times and the food is always spectacular. We MUST get the tuna bites as our appetizer. We look forward to them everytime we are in Va Beach. Them and the orange and grapefruit crushes, of course. Yesterday we went for brunch and the food was amazing. The service is superb and the staff is always friendly. The view of the ocean from our table was an added bonus. We are looking forward to our next trip to Waterman's!!
