Seafood
Waterman's Restaurant is a cozy seafood restaurant overlooking the Galveston Bay. The views from here are absolutely stunning, and the food just makes it even better. It has an extensive bar that offers up an array of possibilities, while the abundance of available seating outside offers up a great opportunity to have healthy conversation with friends and family.

Waterman's Restaurant has a terrific low key ambiance and has been serving seafood to patrons for years. Consider ordering the salmon, which is grilled to perfection and served over a bed of rice, as it comes highly recommended by many. All of this and more is what makes Waterman's Restaurant such a special place.

Waterman's Restaurant offers a waterfront DockBar on the ground level that hosts a comfortable open-air bar with music, dancing and great drinks. Pull up to Waterman's Restaurant via Waterman's Marina on your boat if you so desire. Your boating attire is acceptable and even encouraged.

    I read the reviews and I guess it created an expectation that the experience failed to deliver. It is a neat place. The prices are way too high for the quality of food. The service was actually subpar. Waiter took 15 minutes to get drink order. Then we had to go in search of refills because he did not check on us. He brought the drinks, took it order and we didn't see him until I got up heading toward the kitchen area for a refill. The food was bland. One member ordered a burger and they didn't ask her how she wanted it cooked and it came out medium rare. She didn't want it that way. Typically if a restaurant does not ask, you expect it well done but not here!! I may give them another shot because sometimes you get a one off experience, but I will not go out of my way to do so.

    The crab cake was awesome. The waterman salad was just spring mix with a very small goat cheese. It did not have the raspberry dressing. The red snapper with Texas topping was just ok. We have been here before when it had been amazing. It also was very small portion for $60. Service was great !

    The food and cocktails were good, and our server was attentive. We really enjoyed the live music. However, this is not the cleanest place on the island, nor the most affordable. For an upscale restaurant, I would expect a much nicer atmosphere. I don’t mind paying higher prices, but when I do, my expectation is that I get what I am paying for. Waterman’s fell short for me by quite a bit. Putting Market Value/Market Price (MV/MP) on a steak is absurd. If my meal came with lobster, I could get behind the MV listing on the menu. Had I of known that my filet was over $60, I would have never ordered it. If I'm going to pay that much for a steak, it better be worth it, and this one was not. It didn't have any seasoning and it was cold in the center - I ordered it medium rare. The only flavor came from the mushrooms I had added. We were excited to dine here due to the reviews we read online. Unfortunately, we were disappointed and we're not going to be going back any time soon.

    Interesting place. Really more suited to summertime outside dining. Inside seating is awkward…high tables or low chairs. Not comfortable. Open kitchen faces dining room but fluorescent lights are garish creating an unpleasant ambience. Food was good. Service was great. The other irritant is the music is loud so everybody talks loud to be heard. Creates a loud setting.

    Watermans is our local favorite and we have been coming for years. This past New Year’s Eve we thought it would be a nice end to 2023 so we booked a table last minute. The only open reservation was 4:30 PM. We arrived and were seated immediately and there were only about 6-8 tables occupied. Since it was early, the staff was all having a meeting at a table nearby. No one looked over, brought us water, or anything for 10 minutes. Finally, the waitress presented us with a single sheet paper menu. We asked for the regular menu and they said not this evening. We were a little disappointed, as there was not even a pasta offered. But, they did have the filet mignon, so we thought can’t go wrong. Our food was served in a reasonable amount of time. The waitress made a comment to watch the plate as it was extremely hot. However, our food was unusually cold. The vegetable was cooked, but cold to the touch. The loaded baked potato was obnoxiously huge and took up 1/2 of the dinner plate. It appeared to have been assembled quite some time ago as the cheddar cheese was melted and then cold and greasy like it had been sitting out. I asked for my 8 ounce fillet to be butterfly, medium. The piece of beef on my plate was an interesting shade of brownish gray. Again, cold. No grill marks whatsoever. As far as flavor, I guess it was OK, but visually, not very appetizing. My husband steak, however, was the only positive thing on the plate as it was cooked properly, and to his liking, it had some grill marks on it. One last point – after they took our order, we asked for the bread basket. They typically do a lovely, buttered garlic knot. The waitress embarrassingly came back and said the chef will not be doing any bread this evening. At a price point of $60 per plate, I really feel that the kitchen fell short of offering a special New Year’s Eve meal that night. We will write it off as a one time bad experience. We will try again.

    Nice restaurant at marina. We went for dinner. Food was good but priced on the high side. The key lime pie was not tart enough and had green sugar syrup on it which h spoiled it for me. All tables are set for larger groups, and chairs are stuffy and big. Maybe need an update there. The views must be nice during the day!

    We always look forward to Waterman's and Saturday was up their usual excellent standard. I'd been looking forward to the fried shrimp for months, and my wife chose a steak. Best she's ever had, anywhere. The shrimp besos appetizer was amazing, and a great start to our meal. Waterman's is "destination dining" for us.

    From the time we walked off the elevator till we left everything was wonderful. The hostess and waitress were friendly and attentive. However when I made the reservation it asked if we were celebrating anything and I said yes, but it was not recognized. Two couples, we were celebrating our 49th and 42nd anniversaries.

    Food was expensive for lunch. Quality was ok, but portions were small. Had to asked several times for items even though it wasn't busy

    We have been going to watermans for years and love it! Their fish is amazing. This last visit was not the best, I think they were short staffed in the kitchen. I ordered a $65 ribeye medium well and it came to me medium rare. We were still charged for it and the food was delayed getting out, I think they were short staffed. Service is always amazing and the staff is great. Grilled Snapper was amazing!

    Love to visit this restaurant each time I am in Galveston. Terrific service experience from start to finish and appreciated our server Alex being attentive and making sure of the details to the orders. The grouper was fresh and cooked to perfection. Plus, the view from the table was wonderful.

    Our server was great. We felt that the menu and food were mediocre. Crab cake tasted like canned crab. Nothing was outstanding except our service.

    Usually very prompt service. Last night was a little slow. The food a little cool upon arrival to the table after a long wait. Had to stand up to leave and ask to hostess for our bill. Waited too long for the bill.

    The food was good, with bigger portions. The view was beautiful and music after 7 was fun. My only feedback would be the redfish special was a little bland and the fried pickles were pretty salty.
