B/c of prev rave on their shrimp burger I thought is give it a try in a pinch bc already 8:30 and couldn't get to El's or BODI in time. If they had still been open I'd sent all 3 back and demand a refund. Worst ever. If it killed my desire for a "real" shrimp burger" while I'm here... More

We were excited to find a place around EI that had a gluten free option. After a call ahead I was assured that there were options, I was blown away by the seemed shrimp and veggies I had to settle for (note my sarcasm). If you have a few hours to spare, want to be ignored, check this place out.... More

Have been here over a dozen times & being from eastern shore I'm critical of crab cakes. Hands down they have the best in the area!! Highly recommend the crab cake sandwich with their homemade chips!! Plus they give military discount =)

Went here for lunch. When we arrived there were only 2 other tables filled. About 10 minutes after atriving, a large party of 15 arrives. Our order was taken before the large party arrived, however, it took an hour (no exaggeration) to receive our food. No special orders. The table of 15 received theirs right after ours. Asked for manager.... More

Took my son out for burgers on our vacation here. Had heard their food was good for the area...we waited about 30 minutes. When checking in, two late 50-somethings jumped up in front of us to sign in first. Later after being seated, I started noticing globs of snotties giving people around them dirty looks and akward stares. Aside from... More

Blackened Tuna was delicious, my husband really enjoyed the crabcakes. For an appetizer we had the Buffalo mahi bites....they were VERY delicious. Good portions and great service.

What a fun place to eat! The food is fresh and good. The decor is Crystal Coast at its best. . . Fish plaques, fake grass hanging from the ceiling, oars, boats, and drinks served in mason jars. Our waitress was so nice and caring. Prices are great for a large family outing.

We chose Flipperz on the recommendation of the staff at Village Market (nice folks!), and were not sorry. After read the warnings of wait-time here, we arrived at 4:45 for supper on a Thursday, early August. No wait. Walked straight to our nice booth. From there, it was all fabulous! Their servers have been trained to view every table as... More

That wait was long, for the meal. Arrived early to dinner so we wouldn't have to wait, but we still waited over 30 minutes. We were seated outside in a screened in porch type room. It was Ok. Ordered sandwiches and appetizers. Service was fast. Food was of good size portion. But overall nothing was great, just OK. I've been... More

I ordered the crab cakes and they were horrid! Tasteless. Blah! We visited again and before I could warn a member of the group they ordered the crab cakes. They again looked like they weren't even cooked and the person said "ewww!" and she didn't take another bite.
