Looking for an eatery that makes a romantic spot for a candlelit dinner and also pleases crowds when taking the whole family out? Waterman’s Grill in historic downtown Edenton combines the town’s nautical roots with an upscale take on surf and turf favorites, and the result is a casually elegant eatery that welcomes a steady crowd of regulars and attracts visitors. Their menu includes steamer and raw bar specials, seafood, beef and chicken, pasta, salads and sandwiches. Get your fill of mid-Atlantic oysters and crab staples, but be sure to take a look at the extensive list of daily specials too, ranging from seafood au gratin for adventurous palates to pizza burgers when you want a new take on a classic. Waterman’s Grill also offers wine and beer options, including drafts from regional breweries, and handmade cocktails. And no trip to Waterman’s is complete without saving room for the day’s dessert special.
