Frozen flat fried shrimp

Recently visited after a very long time. Crab dip was good, crab legs were also, but friends ordered the crab balls and fried shrimp. Immediately when served we could tell they were frozen flat fried shrimp. I don't understand why seafood restaurants can't have fresh seafood vs frozen. Very... read more

Was in the area for a 3-day getaway and went here twice for lunch. The food was average, but the setting is GREAT! Right on the water -- in fact some tables are on a floating dock! Beautiful view, cold beverages, and friendly staff. Rockfish bites were the best item we ordered. Great local hangout...

Restaurant on the water, plenty of outdoor areas to eat. Also a big tent with a live band and dancing. Come by boat or land. Enjoyed the salad with shrimp, mussels, stuffed mushrooms, drinks. Great atmosphere, fun day.

Word of mouth and Washington Post proclaimed this to be the #1 Crab Cake in the area. Stoney's menu states A half pound of pure crabmeat served with coleslaw. A Stoney’s original Voted #1 by Washington Post. However, reality was a different story. We were served crab cakes that if you looked very very close you might find some cab... More

We had a nice Saturday afternoon late lunch for three hours at Stoney's! We were having crabs, shrimps and crab cakes. The crab cakes were huge and probably the best I ever had. We devoured probably around 30 crabs. These were very tasty. The waitress took perfect care of making sure we didn't miss anything! Thanks to the whole staff... More

First came here in mid-1990's when we had a boat, and came by land and water many times. Boat is no more, but we make the long trip from Northern VA at least once a year. We went this past Sunday for a late lunch and ate outside under an umbrella on dock so that we could enjoy the peaceful... More

This is really a great, casual, cool location with a mini mannade waterfall, separate outdoor bar, Adirondack chairs and plenty of places to tie up your boat. The #1 crabs were meaty and very tasty yesterday at lunchtime! We also ordered Rockfish Bites and Calamari for appetizers, both gobbled up in minutes by our crew of kids. And steamed shrimp...cooked... More

Had a great midweek lunch of crabs and shrimp, with cold beer, today at Stoney's Broomes Island. The service was excellent and attentive. Went there by boat -- they have many, many places to tie up, protected too as they're just in from the Patuxent on Island Creek. Finished off lunch with a strawberry shortcake, a Stoney's dessert I've been... More

Great restaurant, great view and they were very accommodating and cooked the food separately because of my severe seafood allergy.

If you want crabs and beer with a great view, this is your place. Great drinks and bar. But the rest of the food is awful, and its been that way for years. Would love to see someone like the Ruddy Duck come in and take over this location with more food options!
