Hubby and I stopped in for lunch and had a wonderful meal. Everything was delicious and fresh. I had the crab stuffed shrimp, baked potato and cole slaw. Slaw was perfect, slightly sweet and sliced, not chopped fine like it had already been eaten. The crab stuffed shrimp was perfectly seasoned and cooked and served hot. The crab was in... More

My companion and I stopped here prior to attending a recent film that was being shown as part of the AFI Docs Film Festival. We stopped here entirely because of the reviews posted on TripAdvisor. Since we are not from this area, this was our first visit to Crisfield's and I would say that our experience was in line with... More

This place hasn't changed in years and that is a good thing. They still serve extra fresh fish and seafood in a basic environment. I had the crab imperial which was delicious. Husband had fresh catch of rockfish. Fries were really tasty, too early for tomatoes but there aren't a lot of choices for healthy sides. it is what it... More

I had heard about Crisfields since I moved to the area several years ago; I was always told is was 'THE PLACE' to go for seafood. When a friend suggested it - I leapt at the chance. The old time, not-been-changed for decades ambience was all there - and that did not disappoint. I ordered scallops a la Newberg and... More

I'm 65 and I've been eating at Crisfield's since I was a toddler. My grandfather ate lunch here at least twice a week. He worked at the old Heidi bakery nearby. My family went to Crisfield's for all family celebrations. It was EVERYONE'S favorite restaurant. I was happy to pass the tradition down to my children and grandchildren. They love... More

Stopped in for a late lunch with friends after a movie. I had the lite lunch of fried flounder, fries, coleslaw. My friend had the stuffed shrimp, fries. Both were exceptional. I was surprised that for the lunch sized portion I had 3 full filets of fish, prepared crisp, hot, and not over done. The slaw was great and the... More

The decor is 50's diner, the service is from "the good old days" and the food is first rate seafood at a reasonable price. I don't visit as often as I would like, but I have never been disappointed. Great crabcakes, a Maryland staple. Love their clam chowder and their creamy coleslaw. Hope to make a return trip soon.

I ate here after reading reviews on Tripadvisor. Criesfield did not disappoint. I had baked stuff shrimps with luscious crab meat. The shrimps (3) were large, the coleslaw was delicious and the bake potato was baked to perfection. The staff was pleasant and made me feel I was dining with family. I recommend this local restaurant. The food is good... More

My family has been going to Crisfield's since before I was born. There's a reason it's been open since the 40s. Everything is very straightforward here; if you don't like seafood, you'd be better off eating somewhere else, because the fish is going to taste like fresh fish, not some chimichurri panko crusted stuff you'd order at a chain, not...
