Another local gem. Great water view. Great harbor atmosphere. Twelve oysters at a very special lunch price on weekends. Lobster specials. Laid back accomodating atmosphere. Very friendly crew! Big outdoor summer dining. Adjacent to Ocean City Yacht Club. Cream of crab soup off the hook ! The oysters, lobster and cream of crab do not get much better !

This was our first visit and we will definitely go back! The cream of crab soup was the best ever--lots of crab meat with a perfect consistency. The crabcake sandwich was all lump crab meat with almost no filler. The accompanying chips are homemade and delicious. My husband's fried oyster sandwich was also excellent. The server was attentive and knowledgeable... More

We had fish, and crabcakes, but the highlight of the meal was the cream of crab soup. It had a huge amount of crab with no shells or filler. If you go, do not pass up the chance to try some. All the food was good, a good amount, and well made.

Been there for Happy Hours several times over the years and now in the dead of winter. The big "Leon" southeastern storm rolling in as we sat there had us closing bar at 7pm. Friendly mom bartender serving us cheap drinks and good food, talking with us (the only 2 there) like a friend. Been there during very crowded times... More

We tried this restaurant last month during fall Cruisin car show weekend. The weather wasn't the best so we couldn't take advantage of their upper outside deck seating. The restaurant was nice, service and food were good. My husband especially loved the all you can eat specials. We stopped in this past weekend but the all you can eat specials... More

We are glad we dined here. They truly do have the best crab soup we have ever eaten. We also had their ribs which were really delicious as well. Their "Happy Hour" menu is outstanding. It offers lots of seafood at amazing prices. They have lots of seating and a nice view of the Ocean City Harbor. ( See their... More

We recently went to OC for my birthday and had one mission only...to find the best tasting and best deal for oysters!!! This is the place for that. We were there at the end of October-weather was unseasonably warm. We called to see what kind of oysters they had (raw of course). When we heard they were serving Va. regional... More

We got the special crabs, shrimp, corn, and hush puppies. The shrimp and hush puppies were good. The crabs were about the worse we have ever had. Watery and cold. The corn was muchey. We are very very disappointed!

This was my second visit to Crab Alley in the last couple of years. Both times I have gone it was late in the evening, and with a large group of people, and both times we were accommodated graciously. Unfortunately, they were out of crabs by the dozen this past visit. All in all, the food was good and the... More

I was waiting for my man to come into port and had a reasonably priced wine in a cute second floor bar. Got the call to fetch him. Once settled and docked, our Captain, wench (me) and crew came back on my insistence and had a really nice casual dinner upstairs. They loved the crabcakes, and I had seasoned steamed... More
