A favorite place for dinner

The service and the food are always outstanding. the crabcakes and the Hallelujah soft shell crab are among my favorite dishes.

It was very easy to spend a couple of hours touring the USS Kidd. It is a self guided tour ~ the brochure and matching numbers on the ship make it easy to take the tour and understand what you are seeing. It can get a little claustrophobic getting into the small spaces, but it gives you an idea of... More

Spent a couple of very intersting hours touring the USS Kidd and the associated museum. The ship tour is self guided, so having some knowledge in advance does help one to understand what you are seeing. Not to say that those with no prior knowledge will not benefit from this tour, they most certainly will learn, just saying that prior... More

We usually take our daughter and her cousins on the first Sunday of the month every so often, or when there are festivities going on downtown. My daughter gets a little nervous when she is down in the bunkers in the ship, but I think it's pretty cool how you are able to see when they slept and the inner... More

Excellent tours, knowledgeable guides, great views, and it's haunted! If you are a history nut like I am, check it out.

I went on a cloudy day so that it would be cooler. Nice job of saving this ship. I really enjoyed the visit. I highly recommend this tour.

Plan on spending at least 2 hours to see this great ship. Both my wife and I enjoyed the tour and plan on another visit next time we are in the area.

I am a sucker for naval ships of any era. The US has many museum ships, saved from the breaker's yard by cities willing to sponsor a ship and eat the necessary costs. I have visited the Kidd four times over the years. My first was in the mid 1990's and I have trod its decks three more times since.... More

There is a museum in the building where tickets are purchased. My son and husband love and history and really enjoyed the museum and the USS Kidd tour. Recommend taking a tour.

We went on the first Sunday of the month (FREE!) and had a blast! The kids loved climbing the ladders up and down on the self guided ship tour. It was amazing to see how life was on a ship. I can't imagine going up and down when it's bobbing in water! The museum is well done and has lots... More
