    We had the Blue Crab and a kids meal. Awesome food and service. This was our first experience enjoying Maryland blue crab and it was awesome. Our server took a lot of time to teach us the "How to"!

    Omg had the crab cakes & rockfish on what happened to be most perfect day date ever. Those fish end up being the most tender perfect items I'd encountered in some time.

    Holy crabs. All you need to do is order any type of seafood to have a fantastic meal. Go look at the sail boats and live crabs on the back deck.

    Always a great time! Get a table outside. Order a dozen to share with the family and get your hands dirty. Crabs are caught fresh daily. A must stop in spot whenever we pass through Maryland.
