Great rockfish, quiet, on water, a little pricey

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... read 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

We always take visitors to the Masthead. The view (especially at sunset) is marvelous! Seated along the Tred Avon river, the breeze makes one comfortable on even the hottest days. They serve great fish & chips and I enjoyed wonderful soft crab sandwiches on my last two visits. Sit outdoors and enjoy the food & scenery at the same time!

They had 'em ... crabcakes! Coconut shrimp, Rock Fish and Clams. Friendly service and be sure to sit outside if the weather's good since the Chesapeake Bay view is amazing. Prices were fair and food was promptly delivered.

What great service. Food came quick and hot. Soft crabs were terrific. Beautiful setting, good food and fast service on an evening when the place was full. It was hard to believe, they really did a fine job. The only ding in the night was the Masthead salad. My wife said the crab balls did not have much flavor and... More

Had steamed crabs with just the right amount of Old Bay & sweet, steamed clams, along with their moist, delicious corn bread. Sitting dockside watching the sea birds, turtles & jelly fish, doesn't get much better than that. The only issue is the service, the servers spent most of their time sitting inside the building on their cell phones, wasn't... More

A great crab house with great views. What more can you want? Their location on the water gives you amazing sunsets and views. The crabs are great, the staff friendly and helpful. The prices are good and they don't upcharge you if you order a half a dozen of crabs unlike many other crab houses. And the beer is cold!... More
