My husband and I are temporarily living near Edenton and had heard great things about Waterman's. We went on Friday night when the town was busy with a pre-Christmas celebration and worried we might have to wait on a table. The wait staff was was ready for the rush though and we were seated immediately. We chose two of the... More

This restaurant has always a favorite and a must when visiting this area. However, this time was not like times in the past. The food was so so. I had the scallops with the broccoli crowns and I have a hard time appreciating my meal when it is not hot. I don't understand why it is hard to serve a... More

Been here several times. The food is good and the service is great. Better check ahead to see if it's open. it is sometimes closed when the owners go on vacation.

We had dinner here. We had a steak and shrimp entree and a steamed scallops entree. Both were very well prepared. Not over cooked! They offer a full crown of broccoli as a side. Great idea! My husband had the brussel sprout casserole and really enjoyed it also.

We stayed the Captains Quarters Inn which had a BBQ Sauce tasting with riblets the night we arrived. I tried to make a meal out of those little riblets, but there were 3 other couples and I didn't want to embarrass my wife. We decided to walk downtown and find a "little" something to eat. We walked into Waterman's and... More

We walked from our B&B to get a drink and bite to eat. What a great little place right down town. We sat at the bar and struck up a conversation with a friendly local. Enjoyed some excellent crab and good wine.

I had read mixed reviews about this restaurant. It had a lovely view. But, that was as far as I would go to recommend. I walked in to find 3 hostesses on their phone. Once seated, I was stuck in a corner and then packed in with 2 other couples. My waitress was prompt. However, she was familiar with one... More

We ordered from the specials menu, and boy were they special! I had the crab-stuffed flounder and my husband ate the prime rib. He said it was the most tender prime rib he had ever eaten. I had to beg for a bite to see for myself! The service was attentive and friendly. We enjoyed our meal very much!

We were taken here by a friend who has been here a few times. Located in the historic downtown of Edenton, don't judge a book by its cover. The exterior was quaint and for the charm of the old downtown Main Street. The inside was well maintained. Service was good, not great. But the food was excellent. Worth a stop... More
