Great food, great variety

We go here quite often, the regular menu is sizable, and they run specials every day. There's lots to choose from, and I haven't had anything bad. The Caprese salad is probably my favorite, but the Hot Pastrami and BLT get regular consumption. The spinach salad and steak sub are also very good... read more

We came for lunch on our way to a conference. Based on reviews it sounded good. We ordered the wings and a salad. The wings just weren't that great. The salad was just ok. The service is you order at the counter and they deliver it to the table. Service was great on that end. Their gluten free sandwiches are... More

This local eatery is both and at the top of our Go To restaurant for our family. Service is always great. From ordering at the counter to table delivery to the table talk from the manager and staff to ensure we are enjoying our food or to see if we need anything. The menu specials change daily and I never... More

This is a combo order-at-counter/sit-down restaurant. Staff still come to the table to ask if everything is fine, even though they get no tips. The food is as delicious as any seafood restaurant I have been in. I usually get the salmon. Salmon is so easy to overcook and the grill it to perfection!

This restaurant has now been in Bowie for several years and will be around for some time to come. Good food, nice people working there, and a nice family atmosphere. YUM.

Came here with my wife for dinner after seeing it in TripAdvisor. At first I did not know what to think, but I am glad we went. You order your food up at the registers and they give you a number and you go sit down on your own. I honestly saw about 50 things that I wanted to order... More

This place is not a big restaurant, like some of the "chain" restaurants, and they do a lot of carry out business. In a recent newspaper "reader's choice" awards poll, they were the winner in the best cream of crab soup category (which I happen to agree with), best lunch under $10, and best dinner under $10 category. They were... More

I love their cream of crab soup. Think it is one of the best around! You have to order your food but then it is brought to your table.

Tripadvisor to the rescue! We ended up here after we got stuck in Bowie and wanted to wait out the afternoon rush hour. So we checked Tripadvisor and found this place. It's an old school friendly deli, order at the counter and take your number to your table. The burgers we had were great and so were the fries. Ask... More

Checked it out since it's rated #2 for Bowie and I was looking for a good crabcake sandwich. Got just that- not spectacular (especially in hindsight after having one at the Dock Street Bar and Grill in Annapolis), but good. Small place, but they accommodated our large group (I called ahead to let them know we were coming) and paying... More
