Part casually hip restaurant and rum bar, part gourmet coffee bar, and part waterfront concert venue, Watermen's Bar and Grill really seems to have something for everyone. With comfortable seating inside or out on the picnic tables on their giant deck, just above the waterfront lawn, there's plenty of space to enjoy a meal or let the kids run around, and the sunsets over the Pamlico Sound are nothing short of spectacular.
Watermen's Bar and Grill debuted May 18, 2013 as a full-size restaurant serving freshly prepared, made-from scratch food with a focus on local ingredients and a high level of customer service. Produce is locally sourced, the fresh seafood is local, North Carolina craft beer is always on tap, even the coffee is locally roasted just days before it's brewed. Morning starters include breakfast burritos, Umpqua oatmeal and fruit smoothies. For lunch try the blackened local tuna sandwich with wasabi cream sauce or the lump crab quesadilla. For dinner, one of the most popular menu items is chef Devon's Carolina pork BBQ Ribs, or try one of the many local seafood specialties.
Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, you can catch live music every week on the waterfront deck outside. The Family Friendly Sky Blue Summer Concert Series sponsored by Carolina Brewery kicks off in April with most shows offering FREE admission and lasting from 6-10. Watermen's Bar and Grill is located on the sound in Waves, just behind REAL Watersports.
