I've eaten here twice now, and the food is solid if not spectacular - basically bar food. The crab cakes are good, if expensive $27. Zero ambiance. Friendly service though.

Atmostphere here was good with nice view of marina and boats. We sat outside overlooking the boats at a table with an umbrella for shade. Service was acceptable, but not the fastest. I had a chicken sandwich with side salad instead of fries. Food was tasty and acceptable as well.

Visiting and shopping at St. Michael's is always a delight and eating at the Town Dock Restaurant just enhances your total experience. We told our friend, from Montana, about the delicious crab soup (with sherry) and he couldn't believe it. It is the BEST on the Eastern Shore. We asked for bread, instead of crackers, and the hard-crust, hot bread... More

We visited this restaurant the weekend after Christmas. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and offered many suggestions to make our meal memorable. The herb encrusted cod was delicious and the crab risotto creamy and decadent. As we ate our meal the sun set and the lights on the lighthouse and pier lit up the water.

Have been to this restaurant many times and enjoy sitting on the deck (when nice weather) and enjoying the marina activity.

Town Dock had the best Christmas decorations to complement a great meal. The entire family loved it. The cranberry encrusted fish special was fantastic.

Very good fresh seafood at reasonable prices. Fresh oysters all year round. Joanne is a great bar tender!

Dinner with friends. We ordered a variety of apps including mussels, oysters casino and calamari. The mussels were good and the broth was yummy as well. The oysters casino had a great blend of flavors, but now that I think about it, the taste of the oyster wasn't there, it was more about the toppings. The calamari was as good... More

Thank you for taking the time to submit such a detailed review. I like our oysters casino too because ours are a little different than the normal casino recipe. Perhaps the cook was a little heavy handed on the casino and I shall let them know in the kitchen to lighten up. We really don't like to run out of... More

Can't recommend! Ordered two appetizers, brought one of them wrong. Waiter brought the correct one, without being asked and we were charged for all three. Are you kidding me? Crab and artichoke was delicious! Three different meals ordered...cioppino(?) sent back, mussels not fresh and the shrimp smelled bad. I think it was "leftover"....way over! Guess what, we were charged for... More

Okay, thanks for giving us an honest review. You mention for the most part that the food was good and I appreciate that since many guests would overlook that fact given the problems you encountered. Prior to writing this response I spoke with Alonso who didn't remember this table specifically. I do know that Alonso is all about keeping the... More
