Lunch

Was there 5/20, typical bar restaurant, very good crab cake with fries and coleslaw. Would and will go there over and over again. Have my boat right up the road so will have many chances to go and in fact will.

We were seated right away by a very nice young man. Hot, delicious bread and butter was delivered to our table. The ice tea we ordered was perfect and ice cold. I got the jumbo lump crabcake with a baked potato and cole slaw. Everything was absolutely delicious. My husband ordered the chicken Chesapeake. It was a rather large piece... More

Have been going there for lunch and lite dinners it is very good. Crab cakes are good and so are the salmon cakes tasty. This place is very reasonable and the staff is... More

I was in the area looking for a restaurant. I had seen positive reviews on Tripadvisor and got a positive review from a local. The crab cakes were excellent. Lots of crab. Lightly seasoned which is perfect if the crab is good (and it was). The tartar sauce was optional in my opinion. The decor is spartan. The tables are... More

Had the lobster tails and they were excellent. Not the fanciest place, but what crab house is? Don't come late, they may run out of crabs. The locals seem at home here.

Schultz's has been around what seems like forever. I remember coming here with my uncle in late 70's early 80's picking up steamed crabs from the shack out back. I come here probably at least once a year, whenever in the mood for some seafood it's one of the handful of places in the area I may hit. Be warned,... More
