My family and I make a stop here each year when we vacation in Ocean City. They have the best burgers and we crave them all year long. Nice and big, juicy, great flavor. I do think they've made them just a bit smaller than in previous years. I did finish mine this year and generally I can eat only... More

Dont believe the critics, the burgers at this place are thick, juicy, huge and best of all, you taste beef, NOT fillers. You bite into these grilled masterpieces and you know you have reached burger nirvana. It tasted like ground steak to me. The fries were crisp and plentiful. I was thrilled with the meal, the portion size, and most... More

The atmosphere was nice, we sat on the swinging covered tables and it was very relaxing. The waitress was pleasant and fairly attentive. The food was good for the price. If your looking for good food and a fair price this is for you.

Great atmosphere. Grew up going to this place. Used to be good variety of chicken sandwiches...now almost nothing. Soups and burgers lacked flavor and burgers while big very unimpressed. Possibly worked burger ever. Bigger is not better. A staple of OCMD visits may come to an end. Not to mention no wait while other restaurants were packed tonight.

I loved the way u can sit outside with the swings for tables, but the food I wasn't impressed with. It was ok, just wasn't wat I expected I guess.

Outside glider seating that is a fun twist, especailly for the kids. Inside seating available but is a little dark for my liking. usually has a wwait, but offers outside benches to sit... More

Excellent food... Great atmosphere... I love this place... The outdoor "swing" tables are what keep me coming back.. And the food is the best.

Definitely worth a try. Service was fast and food was very good. Burgers were excellent as another viewer stated. Reasonably priced. Staff was most accommodating and friendly. They have some picnic table rockers outside that look kinda cool - but you will most likely will have to wait for seating to get them.

Just wanted to send a quick note to recognize the exceptional service our family received Saturday by one of your staff...I think her name was Kelly. What a bright welcoming personality she was as we began our visit to Ocean City. The combination of service and excellent food (your Chesapeake burgers ROCK!!!!) will make this our first stop in OC... More
