Food is Good - View is Great

My husband and I took my Mother-in-law here for lunch on Valentine's Day. My husband and his Mother love the bloody Mary's. The crabcake sandwich was very good as was the fish and chips.

This was our first time visit to the Town Dock Restaurant. Food was average. The view was great. The atmosphere was OK inside. Kind of plain. Our waiter left a lot to be desired. He kept disappearing for long periods of time. We could not figure out why since the restaurant was almost empty. I had the Oyster Po Boy... More

From the reception and seating to the live music, everything was wonderful. I loved the Caesar salad and my mussels! The folks at the bar were a mix of locals and tourists and were definitely enjoying their night out! I would return for another visit and bring friends with me!

We just returned from a winter weekend get-away at St. Michaels, our first time visiting. We stumbled upon the Town Dock Restaurant only because the original restaurant we chose was closed for the winter season. What a great situation this turned out to be! The service was excellent, and the (frozen!) water views were beautiful. The food was surprisingly good:... More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of Town Dock. We appreciate you highlighting how good our food is, although I'll be pressing the kitchen about the crab shells. Nobody wants that in their soup or crab cake. We'll make sure we improve on that specific complaint. I make it a point to visit all of the... More

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.

TDROC, Owner at Town Dock Restaurant, responded to this review

Well I guess I'll take "solid" as half a compliment. To me that says we are at least serving consistently good food in this guest's opinion. I think my prices are well in line with other St. Michaels restaurants. Crab meat has been and continues to be really expensive and we don't skimp on our crab cakes. We only use... More

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.
