We had a family birthday brunch and had a wonderful time! The food was creative and delicious!! The staff was kind and attentive. Looking forward to going back!
The service was poor. We did not get one of our entrees and the manager was horrible. Do not recommend.
First time trying Waterman's Tavern. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. French Onion Soup was perfect and the short rib mac and cheese was excellent. We liked it so much we went back for brunch the next day and the Sunday Brunch was outstanding. The Prime Rib Eggs Benedict, that my husband had, was original and delicious. The Blueberry Lemon Pancakes were amazing too.
We were greeted by Randall and escorted to the table of our choice.
Our waiter was fantastic as was the food. We will be back all Winter for Sunday Brunch!
We also ordered menu selections to bring home for dinner!
Food ok. Service poor. We ordered steaks, rack of lamb, shrimp, grey goose martinis. We were here for a nice dinner! One dinner (rack of lamb) delivered 35 minutes later than the rest. They forgot to serve the brussel sprouts and the Mac and cheese entree. I discreetly spoke to manager since our check was $300. He said he would handle it. Check came and there was no adjustment nor did management come over to ask us about our experience. After bill came I discreetly went to speak with manager and this time I got another manager (female) and then a 3rd manager came over. Not one of them apologized or offered anything. They probed me on the quality of the food and how often I dine there. I explained I have been there for burgers and sushi but wanted to treat my friends to a “nice” dinner so we chose Watermans. Management very rude. Food was just ok. Room very noisy. I will never go there again because of how rude the management was. Servers did a fine job. We were patient bc of understanding the shortage of employees but there is no excuse for rude and nasty managers. I have no problem spending $300 or so for a nice dinner. Never go to Watermans. Nasty management!
You wanted a table in a room that was fully booked and we accommodated you. We apologized for the rack of lamb timing, but you insisted on free items and then threatened to “stiff the server.” You also claimed you had never been here before. When asked about the issue, you got defensive and said you wouldn't be back. Three managers spoke to you and all got the same attitude. The “noisy room” was a dueling pianos show and you requested that. We agree that you should dine elsewhere going forward.
We weren’t expecting the restaurant week menu. We did take advantage of it though. The appetizers and dinners were excellent. The place was busy(good to see) we will definitely be back to have dinner with the regular menu. We have eaten here serval times with mix results. Management was on a top of helping out the wait staff with refilling water and clear. We will definitely be back!
My wife and I had two of the best burgers we’ve ever had! We’ll most definitely be back! Great service too!
The food was excellent & the service was as well. My only criticism is the bread, it was terrible. A very big disappointment to someone who loves bread.
Under a previous name, this restaurant used to have a decent dining room area, but now that seems to be closed off and only used for private parties. The rest of the place is just a loud noisy bar with little to no atmosphere. On the bright side the food was delicious.
Service was off. Drinks were not made correctly. Steak came overcooked. Dessert called the orchard looked liked something a child would make. Would not go back! Very nice venue, unfortunately needs help in the kitchen and wait staff.
A wonderful experience. Great food.
Loved our server. The food was delicious and had lots of great options on the restaurant week menu. The only drawback was the level of noise in the room we were in.
Entrees arrived cold. The food was good but it was barely warm.
It was Jersey Shore Restaurant Week and they had a great menu, and food was delicious! Pam served us and was great! We will be back!
Service was amazing and the food was delicious. Their wine selection is limited but the speciality drinks made up for that. Highly recommend.
Went for jersey shore restaurant week. Food and service were fantastic
Went for Jersey Shore Restaurant week. Had the French onion soup, surf and turf (6 oz fillet mignon and two shrimp) with mashed potatoes, two small carrots and broccolini. Dessert was an apple cider donut with cream, cooked apples with walnuts. Food was very good, but servings were small. Took advantage of happy hour, $5 glass of red wine. Also had a nice bread basket. We sat in the restaurant area which was quiet, but there was a lively bar area with large screen tv.
We went for jersey shore restaurant week. Food was delish, waitress was attentive. It was busy and fun
This restaurant participated in the Jersey Shore Restaurant Week which prompted our first visit. I expected smaller portions but no! The appetizer (flatbread) could have been an entree for me. The main course (salmon) was a generous portion with some very tasty sides. And the desserts were excellent as well. We had great service as well. Will definitely return!
One of THE BEST eggplant dishes I’ve ever had!!! GREAT happy hour food and prices!
Impressed, service great, quiet, we could talk. Food was great. We had prime rib A OK. We will be back.
Crab cakes were awful, margaritas were disgusting and hard to drink, calamari came with mysterious sauce that smelled like marinara but had the consistency and taste of warm water. Avoid!
Went with a group before a show so we were there early. Had a great, friendly, enthusiastic server. Great burgers! Place was packed when we left. Manager came by and checked in on us, def would go back there.
Good service and atmoaphere, but the steaks we ordered were nothing to write home about - especially for the price.
Would try again for more tavern style food, burgers and sandwiches.
I enjoyed the chicken and waffle special. The surprise of the bacon in the waffle didn’t disappoint. Make sure you get a little of everything in each bite- it’s the best way to eat it!
Wednesday night prime rib night! Great food,good value! Excellent service from Billie Joe M.!
Outstanding service and food
Good service. Good value.
It was Prime Rib night! Delicious dinner.
The food was good, however the service left a lot to be desired due to the fact that they were so understaffed.
Dinner was very good. Good variety.
Enjoyed the crab cakes and my husband the short ribs.
The place is really nice. Would like to sit in another room next time, as opposed to the bar. I believe they have 4 rooms for dining.
They have a nice menu with lots of gf options. Decent wine and drink list too. The sushi menu is huge. They have specials during the week like prime rib and happy hour, also a brunch option on Sunday's.
The manager stopped by our table to check on us which was nice. We would definitely return again as it's really close to home.
Food and service was outstanding. A friend recommended Waterman’s Tavern and we were very pleased. We will go back.
Always looking for new places to try in the area. The dining are was nice. It has (3) distinct dining options. A Sushi restaurant, bar area and tavern. Nice part is that you can order all items in each area. We ate in the dining area. Food was very good and overall a good experience. I would go back for sure.
The food was adequate and our waiter provided excellent service. We were somewhat taken aback by the maître d' , who was busy on his iPad and did not look up as we came in. After a few moments, he gestured us to a booth and then a few minutes later ambled over with our menus. For the price, there are many other fine dining establishments in the area. This was only an adequate tavern with fine dining prices.
Ate in “dining room”, was noisy and room was not full. Need some sound proofing. Otherwise experience was great. Food excellent and our server Pam was outstanding!
Nice location- nice bar scene- but very loud you can’t hear conversations at own table. Took long time to get bottle of wine. Bacon appetizer almost impossible to chew (not anything like David Burke’s ). Ribeye was all fat but they did take off bill.
Our second time to the restaurant and the food and service were excellent. Definitely a restaurant we will frequent
Bread on table came out burnt to the point of the bottom being black. Crab cake appetizer was delicious. Crab rangoon sushi roll had ZERO taste and grilled cheese sandwich came out burnt on the bottom yet cold temperature as if it was sitting for a while.
The restaurant was not crowded. Wait staff was very nice. Did not send food back because times are tough but would have to re-consider a return visit.
A welcoming staff, Abby was a terrific waitress, good wine selection, broad and interesting menu. The sushi was very fresh. Nice atmosphere, sports TV at bar
