Great View

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... read more

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.

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!

I am giving this a low score because it is named the Crab Deck and when we went for all you can eat crabs on a Tuesday evening, they were out of crab!! Really???!! The Crab Deck was out of crab! What the heck! We were on our way to Assateque Island for vacation and wanted to spend a night... More

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.

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.

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 the ducks and fish by the docks.... More

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
