Located minutes from Chesapeake Bay on the water is One Fish-Two Fish. We offer an alternative to formal dining, it's what we call "fun dining." The atmosphere is "upscale without the uppity." This unique feeling is created by a casual waterfront environment with boat access. The restaurant is centered around the Exhibition Kitchen with panoramic views of the Bay. The menu incorporates a blend of California style with fresh, local seafood. The wine list focuses on "boutique style" wines and is consistently recognized with the Wine Spectator "Award of Excellence." Stephen Michaels, owner, and his staff strive to make this venue high energy but still elegant. The only thing we overlook is the water. See you there.

We had not been here in awhile. There were four of us and we had salmon, fried flounder and crab cakes. The food was good, the service was excellent.

Our third visit and the food is still outstanding, as well as the great service. Only reason I cannot give a 5 is that prices have gone up. Nevertheless it has wonderful views and a great menu.

We ate here and it was the greatest waste of money!!! The outrageous high price for the lousy food quality is absurd. I was so looking forward to eat seafood and all I ate was bad. First the kids menu is lousy, and doesn't have any small portion of their regular menu dishes! My kids wanted fish and had to... More

Food was great, restaurant had no problem bringing wine bottle and crab cake for appetizer, followed by splitting salad for two of us and the bringing Ahi Tuna for me and Salmon entree for my wife. Splitting salad allowed us to enjoy chocolate cake and ice cream followed with black coffee. All dishes were very tasty. Ahi did not make... More

My second time back this year and the experience was just as great if not better than the first time. They set the bar high...and exceeded all expectations. We had three somewhat "picky" eaters and the waiter handled all substitution requests with grace and ease. Can we have grilled instead of fried? I'd like the zucchini instead of the potatoes....

We love this place and eat here frequently. They have good specials and the menu changes seasonally. The crab cakes are always a good choice as well as any of the fish dishes. I have had the filet mignonette several times and it is always good. The fried oysters with pickles is a must! Good wine selection. Open kitchen in... More

Great waterside location and interior and had high expectation for the food. Firstly it was a very cold evening outside which was matched by the icy cold aircon, which was equally icy cold. Had Calamari and for starter, which was greasy and just tasted of the batter. Jumbo Shrimp again bland and greasy, tried the Crabcakes and was again underwhelmed.... More
