Ask for Charlie

Had a great table next to the window and a great server named Charlie. I had the triple play which is grilled scallops, shrimp and lobster. Drawn butter for dipping, too.

I had the lobster and it was good. Salad was very good, service was not acceptable based on the automatic tip required of 18% because we were a party of 8. I tip based on the quality of service and I felt ripped which is why I am giving a 3 rating. I'm not sure I'd return

Seemed like they thru our dinner in the trash and then pulled it back out and served it. Bad from the cold baked oysters appetizer - 2 out of the 6 were the size of my pinky nail, other 4 tiny and no taste or juiciness. Stuffed mushrooms were good. Salad was good. Waitress said something went wrong and it... More

This is normally one of my favorites in the FWB area. On my recent trip, the food was good, but not up to the standards that I am used to. The steamed crab legs were over-cooked which made them very difficult to crack. I also noticed that the prices have increased yet again. On the positive side, they finally added... More

We had never eaten here in our many trips to the area but continued recommendations from friends landed us here. I am typically not a fan of broiled/steamed/boiled seafood, but Old Bay has changed my mind. For starters, the salad with the house(and only) salad dressing is absolutely wonderful. It is a red wine vinegar, oil, and honey mixture that... More

Was the best food of our trip. Was skeptical of all steamed food but there was grilled as well. Had the oyster and steamed shrimp and also the grilled shrimp and pineapple. Very good.

Great food and service. It's usually packed to arrive early. Not much parking but the drinks were awesome

So good --- we had a fantastic dinner at Old Bay. I only wish we had gone earlier in our trip so we could go back! We were able to walk right in, and the service was fantastic. The tuna dip was so good, and the seafood pasta and the mussels were excellent. Our friends had the ruby reds and... More

We were a party of 5 on a Saturday night. We were seated upstairs in the more casual "pub" atmosphere. Our server (Mike) was excellent. The food was outrageous. The meal started with a garden salad for all. With the house dressing, it was delicious. We all had to force ourselves to stop so we'd have room for our main... More

We ate at many places while in the area including Dewy Destins, which is very good, but Old Bay Steamer was much better and had a better variety. The crab legs were amazing and the service was excellent.
