Great place to have a casual meal. I hear it is a local favorite. The decor is very casual and rustic which was very nice. They were very busy but the service was good and efficient. The crab dip was EXCELLENT!

Excellent all around. Service could have not been any better. Soft she'll crabs were excellent with a sauce that complimented. Salad dressings made there were thick and flavorable.

Had big expectations for Waterman's. It was recommended to us by the people at Scotch Hall golf course, so we had a 30+ minute drive to get there. Downtown Edenton is really attractive, and the grill has a nice presence, but things just didn't go...More

I don't recall outdoor seating. Best to confirm that with the restaurant.
Do they cook ny strip or delmonico steaks
