Nice seafood in a very busy restaurant

Loads of seafood on the menu to choose from and if you are looking for crabs this is the place to go. We choose other entrees as we weren't brave enough to try the buckets of crabs but we enjoyed our fresh seafood. Portion sizes were reasonable.

(We were sent here by a local, so don't tell anyone else) Pretty small menu but great crab. The best blue crab I have ever had; you don't need butter as the meat is that rich. Wait staff is fast, friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Plan on US$30 per person. Reservations until 5pm then 1st come 1st served.

Read TA reviews for Crab Alley and gave it a try. I cant say service and food was more than ok. Our server couldn't remember anything as far as who had what drinks or food throughout meal. Really? It was annoying after the first few times. Food was ok, not great by any means.

I went with a group that ordered the blue crab feast and the king crab feast. These come with shrimp, corn on the cob and hush puppies. I was told that the crabs were excellent. I ordered the fried flounder platter with fries and corn. The fries were loaded with salt and the flounder had a strong fish taste, something... More

Arrived at the Crab Alley Saturday night. Got seated right away. The Crabs were awesome, large steamed crabs, which were perfectly cooked. The prices were reasonable. The seafood platter for 2 was great! Our server was attentive. We had so much food leftover, that I took home 9 crabs. They were delicious the next day as well!

The food was very good but the portions were way too small for the prices. The prices were very high and I know it's fish and near Ocean City, but come on $29 for a piece of flounder with some stuffing underneath? The service was not great either. We were told kitchen staff new and we didn't get everything we... More

We decided to go here for crabs. We got the "crab feast for two". It came with a dozen medium crabs (which were pretty big for med) a half pound of steamed shrimp, crab soup, local corn and hush puppies. Everything was hot, fresh and delicious. The host was accommodating, we wanted to sit upstairs on the deck to see... More

I keep going back to this place year after year because it's one of the best. The service is always friendly and prompt, the food taste and quality are always superior, it's where the locals eat, which speaks volumes to me. It's not a boardwalk restaurant so there is parking, and access via car or moped to the shops and... More
