I don't know why there are complaints?! Charlie's is a pleasant tradition, a dining adventure of days past. I've been going there since a child (likely around the time they first graced Shore Drive). It's a treat to have something that hasn't changed in quality or quaintness. The food is excellent! To the naysayers, I'm sorry they don't have valet parking! And maybe your should have your taste buds analyzed because it's for sure they're malfunctioning!

Why eat corporate seafood, when availability to fresh is immediate. Red Lobster brings in their seafood from their corporate store, local seafood is rarely used
I use to live in Va Beach, Va from 1982-1989. I worked at The Holiday Inn and knew a Man named Richard that owned "Laskin Seafood". When I googled it ... Welton's Seafood Market came up. I do not know if this is the same Richard or the son but back in 80's your Business had the Best Seafood including Shrimp, Crabmeat, Fresh Steamed Crabs oh how I could eat them now, the Fish Selections were always Fresh n smelled Fresh. I always went there and You helped me pack Crabs n Fish on Ice to take back home to my Parents where We live up here in the Shenandoah Valley. You never charged me extra and your staff was so Polite!! Times Change and I know Seafood Prices are Higher but if this is the same Richard I knew way back then ... Hello! My Family is down there and they will stop in to see what u all have on Tuesday. Its Great to know you are Still Open!!!
Last night was the first time I had ever been to Waterman's and the service was horrible. First of all there was a group of about 20 people, which means you may need at least 2 servers, no we had one, Secondly we were being rushed to place our order, thirdly we placed our orders and the majority of the groups food was either dry, cold or fried to hard, next we do not get fresh cold water nor were we asked if we wanted more, new or another drink and lastly, but not least the server bought our tabs out and the majority still had over half of their entrée on their plates. We were basically being put out,is what we felt like, and the server had an attitude so of course we had to speak with the manager and he spoke with her she gave him attitude in front of us and lied on one of the people in the group right to his face. To topic it all off the bus boy dropped a dish on one of the children that was there with us as he was cleaning the table, again while we are still sitting there and the manager offers 10% of the tab and I asked if they could take off her gratitude as well, but that didn't happen. Needless to say I will not be going back to Waterman's ever again.
Very nice ocean restaurant, the soup very very good.
Warm, attentive personnel plus good food and the novelty of the glider tables make this place a winner. Portions are huge although the dessert menu could be bugger. Try the she - crab chowder: it's to die for.
Food was good, service was good, HOSTESSES ARE TERRIBLE. They're supposed to text you when your table is ready yet it still took 25 minutes to seat us! Calamari is a little on the spicy side, bread sub-par, scallops exquisite. If you can get past the vacuous, apathetic hostesses, you'll be happy...IF....
In response to the bad review submitted. Soft shell crabs are never held in seafood markets still in the water. This lady picked up the soft shells and proceeded to toss them around in the box which does kill them. She didn't gently touch them. She then flipped the top box over to look at the ones underneath, flipping the ones over in the top box. She was very rude & didn't seem to understand that she was killing the crabs making it impossible to sell to other people. I tried to politely explain to her the situation but she became very irrational & got loud. Yes she was asked to leave very politely as she was screaming profane language on her way out.
My favorite casual restaurant in Virginia Beach! Killer view and great food. Awesome crab nachos, fried shrimp and she crab soup.
Everything about this restaurant is great. From the food and drinks, to the atmosphere, and to the amazing waterfront view. Best fine dining restaurant in VB.
