An upscale, yet unpretentious seafood restaurant, Waterman's Harbor is designed to take advantage of its waterfront location. Guests can enjoy sunset views from anywhere in the restaurant or patio.
If you’re in the mood for seafood, this is your go-to joint. It’s also a great stopping-off point before or after catching the ferry to or from Catalina Island, as the port is just steps away at Dana Point Harbor. Whether you order the Chilean Sea Bass, Cioppino, or Cod, don’t skip the crispy Coconut Shrimp which is best accompanied by the bright Beet Salad. Waterman’s also offers weekly specials, including Oyster Tuesdays, Wine Wednesdays, and Champagne Saturdays. On Mondays, industry members receive half-off the entire bill with proof of current employment in the hospitality industry.
How to book: Dine-in and takeout only, no reservations but you can put your name on their virtual waiting list and check in when you arrive.
