Nice setup on the water with outdoor seating

Food was just what we had in mind for about what we expected to pay. Noisy as expected for a casual, family friendly restaurant

Just like Fisherman's Crab Deck, great service and great quality. We got these on a Saturday night and immediately put them on ice. Didn't eat them until Sunday afternoon and the quality was still amazing. Highly recommend.

Enjoyed a great lunch at Crab Deck! Lots of seating available! Food was great! Many people seemed to be enjoying breaking and eating their crab legs!

Went last nite thinking of eating some good steamed crabs from the shore and bay.... boy were we wrong. Paid $75 for a doz large which is pretty high since I can get them for $58 in PA about 100 miles from Kent Narrows. The crabs came out in less than 10 minutes so I asked the waitress "how do...

Casual, laid back, fun place. Even sitting inside is almost like being outside by the water. Nice little dock walkways to explore (be careful with little kids) and very pleasant atmosphere. Good service and great food. We really enjoyed this place and wished we had gone twice.

My husband and I had dinner here based on the reviews which were mixed but we thought we would see for ourselves. Our server Rachel was FANTASTIC! She was attentive but not over bearing, had a great smile, personable, overall a very sweet girl. The view was wonderful but the food was just ok. The items on the fried seafood... More

The Crab Deck really delivered for our party of 9. The steamed crabs were delicious and the crab cakes were excellent. Service by Daniel was friendly and attentive. Everyone had nothing but great comments!

Stopped for lunch on the way East specifically for some blue-crab-containing food. Settled on broiled crab cakes and split the 2 cake entree. Plenty of food for 2 especially since we ordered an extra side salad. Prices are OK, food is OK..... Sitting "on the dock of the Bay" with a salt water breeze blowing gently and plenty of boats...

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.
