We all had the Cream of Asparagus with Jumbo Lump Crab Meat - this was a10! The fried Green Tomatoes with a white country gravy, bit s of Southern Ham and Jumbo Lump Crab was soooooo good. The Shrimp Salad sandwich was loaded with extra large shrimp and just the right seasoning.

Fried seafood platter had good variety.mGreen beans... More

Expectations were high. I was excited to see the rustic looking building. Back in NJ seafood places near the water are usually very good. The service was phenomenal and had a top staff there. I ordered the seafood nachos. They were really just chips with cheese and frozen shrimp. The veins were in all of the shrimp too which made... More

Party of six for dinner. All orders were as ordered, hot, and quite tasty, especially the oyster stew.

Weary from traveling this restaurant near our hotel appealed to our practical side. Nearby, pleasant looking and no need to get back into the car until the following day. It's view of the water was very relaxing and the fish dinners were fresh and tasty but we both believed way overpriced. A fisherman's platter was over $30 bucks. The question... More

This is a much larger restaurant than expected from the outside but they appear to have tons of staff so the service was mostly timely.

We had the choice of several seafood location within the Kent Island Narrows. Last night we ate at a different, perhaps even more cheerful location. This is naturally a family oriented restaurant, but it lacked a little bit of music and more cheerful atmosphere. I am sorry, but when I requested a bay view, which was partially provided, I was...

Needed to have a meal near Kent Narrows before a nearby event. Reviews of several nearby places scared us so we chose this long time family owned standard and were not disappointed. The well organized menu begins with an entire page of specials. Lucky for us rock fish was featured six different ways and we had two delicious versions. With... More

Ehen we are staying in the area or traveling past, we try to eat here. The interior is fairly large and the main dining room has model railriad tracks with a running train suspended from the ceiling. Fun for kids and adults. It doesn't have the best water view, but it is still enjoyable. Service has been attentive and efficient,... More

Came here for a crab fix. Tried the Cream of Crab Soup and Crab Imperial. The soup had no lumps of crab, just "straw" meat. The Crab Imperial was both overcooked and overpriced. Service was pretty good, but slow to bring water.

We're very disappointed to hear you did not enjoy your cream of crab soup or crab imperial during your visit. Our cream of crab soup has been voted the best in the eastern shore and our crab imperial is certainly one of our most popular menu items. We apologize that your experience didn't meet your expectations and hope to have... More
