Meh!

Very good location, but the food was just "meh"and overpriced. The server was nice and the food arrived quickly. The overall atmosphere was of a low quality tavern. We will not return. In my opinion there are many better options to dine in OC.

The mug and mallet on the boardwalk of OCMD is absolutely 100% terrible! Here is my experience: We went there only because some friends wanted to go, I wouldn't have picked this place on my own. I'm not a picky eater so I figured it would be fine. I was with my wife who doesn't like seafood, our 6 year... More

Conveniently located on the boardwalk. Great food, great service. The staff is fun loving and will always keep you laughing especially if you're near the bar area!

I come back to this restaurant every year because they always have great food and great crabs, whether you're going for seafood or just lunch it's all good. I have been coming here for seven years and will definitely be a destination on every OC vacation!

Mug and Mallet could not be more convenient as it is right on the Boards. The service was so wonderful. My daughter and I had been eager to get a dozen crabs. They came out hot and tasty. We had a crab that was a little mushy, our waitress replaced it with a fresh one and a smile. Unlike many... More

I'm afraid the only nice thing about this palce was the location and the waitress. The table was sticky and needed serious deep cleaning. I ordered a soft crab sandwich which was over cooked to a point that it tasted crunchy hard not flavorful at all. My husband had a crab fluff which he did enjoy but it was very... More

My boyfriend and I took a break from the boardwalk and sat at the bar to enjoy a quick bite. The happy hour drink specials are pretty good, but be prepared for an overpriced lunch menu. I paid $9 for a grilled chicken sandwich with lettuce and tomato. It came with a handful of chips and I did not decide... More

Sign out front advertised 1/2 off appetizers and draft beer. Being on a budget with two children we gave it a shot. our bill came to 86.00. Nothing was half off. The manager stated it was for the bar only which is 10ft away from the table we sat in. I am not sitting at a bar with my kids.... More

If you live crabs and like beer and love eating all you can eat crabs come here. First it's eating outside near boardwalk. You will be seated and they will put out brown paper on table and bring you a mallet and your mug of favorite beer or drink. Then the hot crabs will come. Yummy. Eat eat and eat.... More

We come to OC often and when we do, a visit to Mug & Mallet is a must! From the first time we went there in 2012 and every time since, the Katie and Shannon have treated us like family. The food never disappoints, you can't beat the happy hour specials and the Captain's Pirate Punch is amazing! My favorite... More
