Probably ordered the wrong thing. Had the Crab Cakes, which, with a name like Crisfield I expected something better. They were prepared for a sandwich, not an entire, breaded and fried. Tasted OK, just not what I had hoped for. There were other things on the menu that sounded and looked good (dishes I saw given to other diners) and... More

When I'm back in DC I will make the drive to crisfield's. It is a small diner with a cozy family atmosphere. We were greated by our waiter, and the young man graciously seated our party of 9. He was patient and I'm sure he repeated the daily catch a half dozen or more times! Some of our group were... More

This place back in the day was hopping. It is the same place with the same menu as 20 years ago. Fresh seafood that is not messed with too much. Straight forward with minimal seasoning to let the seafood do the talking. I've gotten the seafood bisque which is luxurious and creamy. Soft shell crab sandwich makes me feel like... More

Sea food is average at best. Place is not very clean. Parking is not the best. It is way off the beaten path. At one point and time this place may have been a gem. But over the years time has taken its toll on the restaurant. It's by all means a mom and pop operation. This is nothing wrong... More

I read a few reviews of this restaurant that indicated "the best seafood in town" and "worth the visit." I have to disagree. Crisfield's combines all the charm of dining in a mall food court with an overpriced menu and average (certainly not excellent) food. For those who don't mind paying top dollar prices for depressing ambience, this may well... More

Recently visited Crisfield Sea Food Restaurant on business trip to DC area. I walked about 1.5 miles thru the rain to visit Crisfield after finding a good review on Yelp.....nothing else was closeby so I elected to make a jaunt -- It was worth the walk.....BEST CRAB CAKES I can remember! It wasn't busy and the staff was very attentive,... More

Crisfields is off the beaten path, not on the main streets next to other restaurants and business's where you would walk by it. But it is not far from the main thoroughfares, and worth the two block walk. It is family owned, has a nice but not to extensive menu, but what they do they do right. The décor is... More

The atmosphere is not much but the sea food is the best! The restaurant was recommended by the Hilton staff was a pleasant suprise.

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
