Cool atmosphere and good old fashioned food

My next door neighbor and her family took me here when I sold my house. I had the clam chowder (not enough clams) and soft shell crab sandwich (loved it, perfect in every way.) My friends had large fried seafood platters with all the trimmings. Everyone was happy and it was fun to look the decor... read more

Sometimes it's very hectic in this Georgia Ave restaurant. The workers hustle to be efficient, which is nice. It often feels very friendly.

I have been to Crisfield on two occasions, each time due to my future in-laws wanting to go. After each visit my fiance and I find ourselves wondering how this place has such a stellar reputation. The food, while not bad, is certainly not worthy of the reputation nor the price. Fortunately, we live in an area where very good... More

Looks like not much has changed here over the years..walking in feels like a step back to the 50's...the staff was warm, the food good, but the prices were just to high for me to recommend this spot as a good choice...especially given all the other dining options in the area..

The atmosphere isn't much, I heard of people calling it a men's room. However the food is outstanding!

It was a chore to pry the other business travelers away from the previous nights generic, chain restaurant happy hour, a block from the hotel and drive 10 minutes to Crisfield's. The whining ceased once the food arrived and all said they were pleased with their meals. To me there was no comparison, as you walk thru the door you... More

We thought Crisfield was awesome when we lived in DC. After being away from REAL Maryland seafood for 2 years we were so,so delighted that Crisfield was still the best. It's now being run by the grandkids so the wait staff is very different but the food is as good as it's been since the beginning of time. Still the... More

, At one time this resturant served some of the bast seafood in the area ,it has now changed hands and is serving THE worse. They can no longer live on the past owners reputation. The store needs a complete re modeling, new staff, and a new cook staff & menu.

Great place to go; Very homey; even the Redskins and other celebrities make this place a must go to. They shuck oysters in front of you if you sit at the bar. Lobster bisque soup is awesome; Crab imperial is always awesome.
