Had the crab cake sandwich for lunch. Very tasty with all meat.; no filler. A little pricey at $13, but the flavor was great. Wife had the crab soup. Surprised it was tomato based. Good for the price.

Not sure I understand positive reviews for this place. It is lacking in customer service, food preparation, and we couldn't wait to leave. Absolutely one of the worst meals we have ever had (e.g., the potato leek soup was devoid of potatoes and leeks and looked like dirty dishwater) and we will not go back.

This place is perfect! Great food and Johnny Moe is simply awesome! Took our kids for a boat ride! What chef/owner does that? Plus he sings! All around great spot.

Mallard's has all the ambience of a nice, seaside pub. Good pub grub, nice entrees, reasonable beer selection. It's a great place to sit, have a couple of drinks and a sandwich and watch the sun set.

Lovely place, great food. Ashley or server was awesome and as set as can be. You sit right on the water andwhether inside or outside its just stunningly beautiful.

I went to Mallards at the Wharf this past weekend, in Aug 2014, and ordered the clams linguine. Do you know it came with clams from southeast Asia. I know because they were still in their pretty white and purple shells. With all the Eastern Shore is blessed with in terms of local seafood, all of the delicious farm raised... More

Stopped at Mallards on our way to OBX. What a great spot! Staff very accommodating to our large group. Food was delicious, especially the crab cakes, soft shell crabs and the grouper. We enjoyed our meal overlooking the water and listening to great live music. A must stop and eat if you are in the area.

Have been going to Mallards for years, and it never fails! The food is always amazing, the staff are great, and the scenery just doesn't get any better! Their crab cake sandwich is to die for, as well as their chocolate lava cake. If you're looking for a great meal on the water, Mallards is the place to go!!
