We stopped in for dinner on our way to the beach and enjoyed the outside dining ambience...unfortunately we didn't stay for the live music by the bar area. The Steamed Little Neck Clams were very good as were the Snow Crab Legs and Scallops. It was fun watching families with their kids feeding... read more

As Eastern Shore vacationers for over 15 years, we've sampled many of the places on Kent Island. Crab deck is just OK. Food mediocre, service good but even the view is not like the ones across the bay at competitors restaruants. Haven't visited this one for over 5 years. Find some other seafood/waterfront restaurants far better.

Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We're disappointed to hear that you find our food to be just OK and the view to be less enjoyable than others on Kent Island. We strive to serve great food to all of our guests and provide a comfortable atmosphere and usually receive positive reviews because of that. Again, we appreciate... More

Fabulous on deck dining with great seafood and a nice atmosphere. We actually ate here all 3 nights of our Holiday Inn Express stay as it was so nice. 3rd night service was a bit slow as they were really busy, but with a view like that, it was no hardship.

A great simple lunch spot for enjoying the bay - the outdoor dockside patio and waterfront views are nice. Our service was prompt and friendly but the food, sorry to say, was disappointing. The Mahi-Mahi was rubbery and over-seasoned, ruining the natural delicate flavor of the fish. It's very casusal dining with everything served on disposable dishes and with plastic... More

Ate here recently with friends while in the area. Large portions and everything was very good. Seafood mac and cheese was shared by 2 in my party. It was very tasty. I had the grilled maui. 2 large pieces of fish. It was hard to finish. The hush puppies were very good. Being from the South, I was not sure... More

We were hoping for better for this crab house. The food was ok, but the flies were outrageous. It was like eating on the farm in the barn in a stall. This is not the first outdoor crab house we have been to. Absolutely the first with such annoying insects.

This place was the real deal for cracking some blue claws! Love the set up of the open doors that are adjacent to the outside deck. Crabs were perfect and waitress was nice enough to split our dozen order in half so they did not get cold. If you are in the mood to do some serious crab cracking on... More

Wow, I didn't expect to be writing this one. We have been to the Crab Deck many times, stopping in going to and or from the beach or a shore visit. It's a lovely view and has an off of route 50 convenience. However, I must interject the latest experience. We entertain out of town guests several times a year... More
