Seafood in Claver County

Great food but a bit expensive. Jerry always gives out free samples of the special of the day. The soft shell crabs are wonderful.

Where to start...Jerry's granddaughter meeting all 14 of us at the door with scrumptious haddock bites while they set our tables up. The Granddaddy crab cake - 1 pound of crabmeat with no filer. The samples of kale and stewed tomatoes. The homemade salad dressings. The homemade Key Lime pie one of the waitresses' mother made. The attentive wait staff... More

The food was exquisitively cooked and delicious. Given the location, we focused on the seafood, which was as fresh as possible. As soon as we arrived, we were given several dishes for sampling (no charge). The owner made frequent visits to the table to evaluate satisfaction, and all servers were friendly and helpful. Though we arrived just after the posted... More

The place is heaven on earth with the greatest host in the world waiting at the front door with nuggets of ambrosia to sample while you wait for the meal of a lifetime. You go once and you'll be hooked. Very pricey but "Oh so worth it!!

There is love in the food which makes a great restaurant. Value in every bite. The shrimp are huge, perfectly seasoned and cooked. The crab entrees are over the top along with the sides. This is the place to splurge on obscene seafood gorging. There are few peers as mentioned in the title. This Jerry is the one who sold... More

Our first time there was on Thursday night (although highly recommended by friends). We were immediately greeted by host, and Jerry the owner. As soon as we said this was our first time, he ordered us samples of the "special" as well as a soft shell crab. My husband and I both felt like royalty in there. The service was... More

This seafood restaurant is everything a seafood restaurant should be. Casual atmosphere great food and fun. Upon entry we were greeted and seated within 30 seconds our waitress appeared with samples within 5 minutes and our drink and appetizer order was taken. The owner came around 4 or 5 times while we were dining to make sure we were ok.... More

My dear friend took me here for my birthday. The waitress was very nice and brought out a few samples for me to taste. I ordered a platter that had a crab cake and fried flounder. Both were beyond supreme!

Does not look like a great place from the outside but once you arrive it is wonderful. Staff always pleasant and accommodating. Food is fabulous. Locals favorite.

This place is a "hidden gem" in the wilds of Maryland. It will define your understanding of the term "fresh seafood". The choices are common by name but unique in taste, flavor and presentation. We had an appetizer called Oysters Casino that was an explosion of flavor! The Cream of Crab soup had an excellent curry flavor. Their Crab Cake... More
