Simple and Fun

The food here is ok - typical bar fair. They have some good drink options at happy hour. So what pushes it from a 3 to a 4? The service is always friendly and the outdoor seating is a great way to unwind after a long drive to ocean city before you can get into your rental unit.

The food is always awesome and the service is always impeccable. The pricing is fair and the best part is on a warm day you can sit outside in the glider tables.

As a kid going to Big Peckers, the name was the only reason I wanted to go (and to get a T-shirt to bring back so all my friends would think I was funny/cool). As an adult, the play on words has lost its appeal to me so now I need more reason to go there and there's not much... More

Very busy so the slow service was to be expected. Food was good but not as hot as I would have liked it to be. Yet again, they were very busy.

While visiting we took some friends for a late lunch. This time of year it was easy to find a seat. There were a few locals that we engaged in conversation, which made our visit much more interesting. Food was good, service excellent. We enjoyed our meal and conversation. Popular place in season, but plenty of room to move around... More

My husband and I took a day trip to OC for our anniversary in October. While not expecting a romantic experience at a place called Big Peckers, we were hoping for a fun dinner. Instead we got average bar food in a boring environment. Crab dip was very good but served with crackers. Buffalo chicken wrap had chicken tenders, hot... More

O.C Md. Is a resort town, and most places are way overpriced. Big Peckers is the exception. Plenty of great food at family pricing. We eat there all the time when on vacation.

Had burgers and fries. Burgers were average, fries were plentiful. It definitely wasn't bad, but it wasn't super exciting either. Access to the gift shop was a mystery.

Great food and a very nice restaurant. Need more waiters/waitress to man the tables. Our waitress brought us our drinks and took the order. The next time we saw her was when she handed us the check. This happened to 3 other tables while we were there. You would think it being corvette week-end they would have more help!
