Perfect Sunsets

This is a fun little restaurant on the Choptank River in Oxford. The menu is very good but not great. The attraction is eating out on the deck, particularly for the sunset views. The fish and chips and fish tacos are reliably good.

Most beautiful water views in the area with huge, wide open river views and boats sailing by. Big outdoor covered patio for dining or some dining and bar indoors. Bar seats, however face the back wall and not the water at all. Not good. Food is basic waterfront pub food with a few good seafood dishes. Not outstanding, but a... More

This is the go-to restaurant in Oxford when you plan to have dinner at sunset. The sunset views on the river are wonderful. The food is good, also. My favorite is the fish & chips. Great tasting and always enough to take home. The only negative on our recent visit was a large group that arrived with a bunch of... More

The restaurant serves slightly better than average barfood. The waitress was great and we had a very good time. We ordered the lobster and crab nachos. While we have yet to find any lobster, they were tasty. Everyone ordered the fish tacos and they were very good.The waitress informed us when we ordered orange crushes that the orange juice was...

Stopped for a $3 margarita and came back the next evening for dinner. It's a great casual dining spot with the best view of the sunset in Oxford.

This restaurant routinely floods during storms so beware! Having said that, my ladies group regularly enjoys the rustic atmosphere, casual food, and moderate prices. Great place to take visitors for Chesapeake Bay crabs! ON the water so fantastic views.

Walked in just before service stopped at 9:00PM. Had the rockfish which was great, along with a Yuengling, which was over priced just like it was at other Oxford restaurants. Entre's were a little on pricey side too. Lonnie the waitress was very friendly and chatted it up about local goings on with us. Overall, we enjoyed dinner here as... More

My husband and I ate here both nights while we were in Oxford. Really nice, friendly staff. We enjoyed the Masthead salad and the crab cakes were the best I have had in a long time. One night we had the hard shell crabs. The were nice and spicy and served warm. It is situated right on the water with... More

I tried the Conch fritters with raspberry sauce for an appetizer and absolutely loved them! I enjoyed grilled salmon over a greek pasta salad all drizzled with balsamic vinegarette. It had two huge pieces of salmon. I took half of my dinner home which usually doesn't happen! Great place to go if you want to sit outside and watch the... More

The food was fine and lucky for us we are not big eaters, had we been we would have left hungry. The salad was not fresh as was made clear by the brown lettuce but the dressing was tasty. This was a very expensive place to select for lunch but I guess resorts are often that way. The loud party... More
