Seafood, at least good seafood, ain't cheap. Crisfield's ain't cheap, but it is worth every penny when you can afford a small splurge. Every single item on the menu (I've tried virtually all over the years) is excellent, "gotta-talk-about-it" food (except maybe the clam chowder, but I'm a chowder snob). The staff are informal, as is the setting, and that's... More

I love old restaurants, the ones where the staff have been there 30 years and some of the patrons seem to eat there several times a week. I'd last been to Crisfield's at least 20 years ago, and it didn't live up to its reputation even then. If you want fresh seafood very simply prepared, this is an ok but... More

On a suggestion of a family friend, I came to this old seafood establishment last year and have visited this place each time I'm in DC for business or pleasure. It's old world style seating. Great simple menu of fresh, fried, or steamed seafood - with a nod to shellfish. I've had the Crab Imperial, the halibut stuffed crab meat,... More

My wife and I visited Crisfield's which we do routinely when visiting Silver Spring, Maryland. We sat at the bar and had a great meal. Their baked stuffed shrip and crab imperial are always winners.

I was in town for a Wedding, and as always we look for local places first. We hit the jackpot. Local, old, Dated, and Great food. We had beers, bisque, coleslaw and the crab imperial. The service is prompt, the staff friendly and the price is very reasonable. Just a great neighborhood place probably from the late 40's with tile... More

I visited this seafood restaurant on recommendation. The seafood was very good. I had fried shrimp. Very tasty. A friend had the seafood bisque and said it was very good. Another friend had the clam chowder and enjoyed it. It is not for atmosphere but I recommend this restaurant if you want good seafood at a decent price.

If you are looking for trendy, creative dishes on the cutting edge of the culinary world, you'll be in the wrong place.

A co-worker recommended this restaurant since I was in the area. Walking in I had second thoughts but as soon as we got our soups I knew we had picked the right place. From start to finish our experience was great. My ice tea was fresh, the seafood bisque was delicious and our food was great. We even took dessert... More

Walked from the hotel to get here and must admit that we were a little unsure what we had gotten ourselves into when we walked through the door. Bluntly it is a dive restaurant. We looked over the menu and decided to give it a try. What a pleasant surprise. We had some incredible seafood, the service was great, and... More

There were lemon wedges and seafood sauce already in a dish on the table when we first arrived. 2 pieces of the lemon in the dish were already eaten. After seeing this, we were unsure about ordering any seafood, so we all ordered Steak. After the dinner, the waitress took the lemon from the table and picked out the eaten... More
