I've read many of the reviews and say what you will, nobody has no comment when it comes to the Grove. This was our second visit and I adore the set up, there are timed seatings, yes the chairs are plastic so get over yourself. You're coming for the food, and you will not be disappointed! The menu is recited... More

Grove Market might not be for everyone, but, then again, not everyone gets in. The reservation system isn't exactly diner-friendly (you have to make your reservation exactly 14 days prior to the hoped-for time of your dinner) but the food is phenomenal. The restaurant serves only beer and wine, but the quality of both are great. I was with a... More

Our second visit to this funky, charming little restaurant just outside of Ocean City. I called 8 or so days in advance, leaving a message with a few evenings worth of options, and I was able to get a table on my husband's birthday. I had the best salad of my life to start. It was mixed greens, topped with... More

We read the reviews. Reservations are essential and you will get a call back. But... well worth it. We were greeted by Leslie and had to wait about 10 minutes for our table. Our waiter, Bill, was engaging and fun. The only thing printed is the wine list!! We shared the homemade salmon pate. I had the crabcakes and my... More

A dining experience not to be missed! We were fortunate to get reservations on short notice and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Celebrating my wife's birthday, we brought our daughter to garner a new foodie experience. If you are looking for fine linen table clothes, silver flatware and elegant serving dishes, look elsewhere. What you will get is an outstanding meal... More

No printed menu, no prices given, cash only, plastic chairs, vinyl topped tables, beautiful view of a trailer park, reservations required. However, the food is fantastic. This is a dining experience. For the full experience you need to have appetizers and desserts. Don’t like paté? Try theirs! Excellent main dishes, with incredible sauces. Desserts are a variety of great cakes... More

Most of the prior reviews accurately portray the unique setting and less than traditional environment. If you want a special, almost foodie quality dining experience this place is a must visit. We come a few times each year to appreciate the high quality food. You will find that the setting is marginal, but try to appreciate that their efforts are... More

What a pleasant suprise. My brother and sister in law said it is their favorite restaurant. I could hardly believe we were in the right place when we pulled up. I thought they were joking. When we walked in I still thought they were joking. The place looks like a little shack but then the waitress started explaining all nine... More

I tried to book reservations for Memorial day weekend 2014 for 4 people. The message on their machine says must be within 2 weeks to reserve and assures you that they will call back one way or the other. It took multiple messages however before they bothered to call back. When they did call back they claimed that all the... More

Great food, very low key. Must make reservations early when in the summer season. Leave your number on the machine, they do call back!
