  • Good waitresses, fun atmosphere, the food is pretty good too and reasonably priced depending on what you get. Highly recommend the crab dip and fried oysters.
  • You can't go wrong with steamed Blue Crab straight out the Chesapeake. Raw Oysters are good too.
  • Their service is awful! The waitress could care less and the drinks were weak.
  • The clam chowder was creamy and delicious & the crab dip was phenomenal!
  • Yum seafood, delicious drinks, and a perfect view from the deck. Nice to have a walk on the pier after dinner too!
  • Fried seafood platter is great. The coleslaw is fantastic I think but I had two blue crab margaritas and thank God I wasnt driving! Id love to go back some day!
  • Get there early if you want soft shell crab. They sellout early.
  • Perfect sunsets and great crabcakes
  • Blackened tuna was tasty, but a bit overcooked. May seem obvious... But just go for the crab!
  • Would definitely stay away from the Oysters Rockefeller. Poor flavor and mostly spinach.
  • Their raw oysters are the BEST I've ever had!
  • Soft she'll crab sandwich was great
  • When in season, the Maryland steamed crabs are great.
  • The food is horrible. For a place that is on the water with a beautiful view, it's just disappointing. We had to return the She Crab soup, lack of flavor & flour-y. Seafood pasta was cold --just bad.
  • Excellent service but the food did not match. Crab cakes and crab filling was not good. Flounder was rubbery. Even the burgers were not cooked to temperature. Very disappointing!
  • Had great service from our waitress but our food was horrible. When we talked to the manager she seemed uninterested in our feedback. Sad to say this is not a restaurant I would return to.
  • Rockfish and soft shell crab are excellent; a little on the pricey side.
  • Great happy hour...
  • Worst food ever! Overpriced not worth it.
  • The food was horrible and the service was subpar...I would not recommend.
