Stopped here while on vacation May 10-13 2015. Wife and I sat on deck over looking ocean and boardwalk. Excellent food we had garlic cheese bread and Brick fired Hawaiian Pizza. Came out fast and hot. Waitress was very good and owner was very pleasant chatting with all customers. Will definitely be back.

Brother's was our "lucky" stop on the boardwalk, OC. They really took a great care of us. The food was absolutely delicious (we had bunch of salads followed by crab ravioli, fettuccine with Alfredo sauce and shrimps, crab cakes, and couple of pizzas). The atmosphere was very appealing and the service was very good and fast, despite the fact the... More

The restaurant has a great atmosphere, nice design. We've tried pizza and dinner plate. The food was great. Pizza was made in a brick oven. This place is a must try. It's located on the boardwalk and has a lovely sitting area outside. Beautiful view and delicious food!!!

We had dinner here. It was very good food and the server was attentive but not too much. He made for a very enjoyable evening out.

Their pizza made in brick ovens is just amazing. A must eat place in Ocean City. While you are there do not forget to visit the souvenir/kite shop nearby.

My wife and I have been here several times simply for a snack and a "Bulldog" Margarita. Each time we tried a snack food and a dessert. The food was ok but not terrible. The drinks are good and the prices are very reasonable for being on the boardwalk. The kids liked their meals so I guess that is a... More

We really wanted this place to be good because it was in our hotel and it was convenient. It happened to be the place that made sense for our party of nine to meet and eat. Bad choice. I rarely have experiences where one bad thing after another happens, but it did here. The table was sticky and wobbly, my... More

We stayed at the Howard Johnson which is attached to this restaurant so we ate here for breakfast and dinner. They offer a breakfast buffet as well as menu service. We ordered from the breakfast menu and it was delicious. We had dinner on the patio and the food was even better than breakfast. Staff was friendly and attentive.
