Please don't be confused about just the service. The server was one thing, but the food was another. Being big fans of crab, my daughter didn't finish her crab soup and my wife had 1/4 of her crab cake sandwich. Me; I felt the crab cake was more than 80% filler and one would have to look closely to find... More

We went on Saturday evening for a simple dinner. The service was horrible. The menu was printed on regular copy paper and offered nothing special. The server actually bulked when we asked if she could wipe off the table which was very dirty. Just disgusting and we left. Please don't go here ....there are so many other good options. (By... More

In general… We visited Solomons (Island), Maryland … for the first time … arriving late afternoon on Friday, August 3, 2012, and departing late morning on Sunday morning, August 5, 2012. Our goal was to visit as many of the little restaurants, bars & grills, and “watering holes” within site of the water. The weather was beautiful, the environment was... More

My husband and I attempted to have dinner here one night -- about 8 pm. Place was about empty, a few tables occupied. We did get a table outside -- and waited 20 minutes -- no server, though the other table, seated at the same time, did get a drink order taken.... We are generally patient people, but this was...

Calypso Bay is a lot of fun. They are on the water right next to some boat docks. It's a small place and there can be a wait but not generally. The food is good and but it's not fancy, so sometimes I forget it can be really good. Great mid week specials. Wait staff is friendly. But the kitchen... More

Thank you Calypso Bay for the pleasure of dinning with you.. Such a beautiful weekend. A great time for a first time out that was not a doctor appointment. for my Mother and Dad. Everyone was so thoughtful of our needs and the waitress was so friendly. After a delicious lunch, Mother and Daddy celebrated their 68th wedding anniversary with... More

My husband and I stopped to eat here thinking we could get a burger with a great view. The "restaurant" was filled with several loud drunk or nearly drunk people. The view was very nice though. We each ordered a burger, well-done. Our first clue that something was wrong should have been the fact that, after 25 minutes, the server... More
