The only fresh seafood they have are the oysters, everything else is frozen. Menu not very appealing.

Had the fried Maryland combo, which was just average. Made sure to ask that the scallops were sea scallops and the crab cake was made with lump crab, which they were. The crab cake was average and nothing like the ones I've had at the crab cake factory in OC. Those were much sweeter and tastier. This one seemed to... More

This was recommended by the hotel. We found it very overpriced. I was very surprised because in the United States meals almost always come with a vegetable or small salad but here it was just spaghetti with crab (very tasty) but came with no vegetables other than some chopped tomatoes in the spaghetti - definitely not a vegetable. I paid... More

A little pricy but delicious food! All the oysters tasted the same and were very fresh. They allowed substitutions which is rare. Will go again!

We stopped here on our way from VA to CT. My husband had made a reservation for us prior and it was a good thing because the place was packed. Our waitress was very good. She went over the specials and made suggestions when we could not decide. We shared the ahi tuna sliders from the starter plate menu. They... More

Visited with work colleagues. The oysters were good and fresh and at a 'Buck as Shuck' good value. I had the battered prawns with orange sauce for an appetiser, it was hot, but the sauce was too thick and overdone. For main I had the mixed grill, scallop, prawn and salmon combo. It was OK, but my colleagues had already... More

My 8oz steak, 2oz mashed potato, 8 pieces of sliced potato, and four pieces of broccoli cost $32. It was all very good but definitely not worth the money.

My wife and I have dined here on several occasions and we find this place to have some of the freshest seafood in the area. Usually, I get the Salmon and have never been disappointed. Their prices are a bit expensive when you consider a salad cost is $4.00 extra. Usually in this area a salad comes with the dinner.... More

When they first opened it was great. Now the only draw is the oysters. Other dishes are smaller portions and mediocre in taste. We had our last dinner at Magrogans yesterday.
