The food is excellent at this facility. As you expect, they take pride in their seafood, especially their crab cakes. The rest of the menu is very good, they don't disappoint. The dining room is basic, if the weather is right, you do get to look out onto the docks with a view of the boats transiting the Narrows, but... More

Back again for dinner at the Narrows and it did not disappoint. The crab cake dinner (two lump Crab Cakes) was so delicious and others in my group had the filet mignon, Chicken Oscar and Fried Oysters and all were extremely happy. You just can't go wrong eating at the this restaurant. The food/service is exceptional. If we didn't live... More

We have been going to the Narrows for years. We live in Florida now and come up to Grasonville in the summer. This is always our "go to" place. Their food is fantastic and they recently remodeled and the views are spectacular. They have a wonderful happy hour with a great bar menu. Their crab gazpacho cannot be beat. I... More

We've been coming to the Narrows for over 15 years. We stopped by recently for lunch and we were disappointed. The new decor is nice and fresh however and the view is still spectacular. The food sadly is not like we remember. The crab cakes are not at all the crab cakes we know. These are small and dry. Still... More

We hadn't been to the Narrows for a while and stopped there for lunch the other day on a whim. The Narrows was as good as we remembered. We shared the cioppino (good) and a salad (excellent). The service was good and the view of the bay is to die for. All in all, a most pleasant lunch.

The food here is above-average, for a place that really specializes in the location and view! The softshell crabs were pretty good, not the best I've EVER had but on the low end of "best ever" (perhaps fourth most memorable). Two really good inventive dishes were the steamed clams Andouille and the grilled quail (outstanding with a sweet polenta and... More

We drove out of our way heading from the Jersey Shore to Knoxville TN because we had been told that Narrows had the best crab cakes around. It was worth the extra miles. The crab cakes were wonderful. We were there for lunch and it wasn't inexpensive but was still well worth the prices. I had a bowl of vegetable... More

The Narrows is our favorite restaurant when on kent island. The food is always very good and the atmosphere is very nice. We know it can be pricey but it is where we go for special occasions.
