I love their diverse menu selection. The food came out hot, fresh and most importantly delicious. Our waitress Paulina was a doll! (: The restaurant and bathrooms are clean. It was our first time there last night and made it just in time before oyster happy hour was over. The oysters were fresh and did not disappoint! We will be coming back for more of that yummy hardy clam chowder and to try their lobster rolls/drink menu. Overall, great place for family dinner or date night!

Good place to meet up with friends. Rooftop bar and outdoor patio were inviting so no interior shots but will update on next visit. Pricey but good. Sierra was our server. Very friendly and attentive - probably best service I have had in months. Good food, great place to hang out.

Love the Waterman Fish bar in Charlotte North Carolina. It had really good ambience and they have a really fantastic menu. I had the $1.50 oyster special. The oysters were a little salty but were still delicious. I also had the nachos and added the blackened shrimp. They were really crispy and had a great salsa on them. I also had a side of mac & cheese that had multiple cheeses & a crispy top. I would definitely order that again. They also make a really great dirty martini. The service was incredible as well. We were always taken care of. Ill definitely go back!

I love a good fish sandwich so when I saw the Friday lunch special is a fried cod sandwich with fries for $10 I had to try it. I came early, around 11:30, because traffic on South Blvd has been awful with all the construction going on. Service was confusing. I sat at the bar and three different employees looked me in eye and greeted me but none of them stopped to take my order. I had to flag someone down and ask if I could order. Food took about ten minutes to come out. It was pretty good. I tried a bite of the fish without the bun and condiments and it didnt have much flavor. The portion size of the fries is pretty big.

The food here was great. We tried the oysters, clam chowder, lobster roll, scallops and shrimp - everything was delicious. The ambience is very relaxed and the service is good too. It is expensive but worth it. Ample parking available behind the restaurant. They a pet friendly patio seating as well.
