Spent a few days in Edenton in late September. The Waterman's Grill was a highlight! Cannot go wrong by patronizing the establishment.

Another great Edenton spot! This seems to be a very popular place with guests and locals. The seafood is fresh, and they have off the menu specials that are also worth a try. They have a good craft beer selection, and the service was great....More

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner on a Friday night. Service was awesome. Food was delicious and the menu consisted of a decent variety of different selections. The atmosphere here was fun and friendly. We look forward to dining here again.

If you find yourself visiting Historical Edenton, NC make sure you stick around until the 5:00pm hour and visit Waterman's Grill. I enjoy the broiled crab, scallops, and shrimp but they have a long menu of coastal favorites.

Busy restaurant, we went around 6:30 hoping we wouldn't wait and got right in, but there was a wait later. Very good dinner. Good menu options of seafood, poultry and beef. Casual setting. Near waterfront for after dinner walk.

I don't recall outdoor seating. Best to confirm that with the restaurant.
