Dinner for two platters without beer is $42

Seafood here is more Maryland quality than we get in Va. Easy stop off I-81. Good food, clean place, nice folks. The "fireplace" warmer on a cold night was a welcome touch

Fresh, very good seafood - Captain's Sampler was delicious - not over-breaded/fried. Our waiter, Skylar, was THE MAN. We visited this restaurant on a cold, winter day but Skylar's warm welcome and service throughout our meal was impeccable. Bottled beer was nice and cold. Why go to a chain restaurant (e.g., Dead Lobster) when you can enjoy this delightful business?... More

It is locally owned and operated by an owner who has watermen family on the shore. It is mostly geared to carry out. The food is average seafood fare. The decor is ketch but noticeable. Nothing fancy with it and it certainly not in the same league as franchise or chain competitors.

They open at eleven and when we arrived about 2:00 p.m. we had the place to ourselves. Service was fast and friendly. Prices are a little high but I guess all fresh seafood is that way now. Portion size was very good and we ended up taking home a fair amount of large fried shrimp, Mahi-Mahi and fries.

We have frequented this restaurant several times over the last few years. We've had lunch and dinner and have done carry out. Every time we have had great service, pleasant and fast. Steamed crabs are just one of their specialties when in season. Cooked perfectly! Their shrimp salad is homemade and full of perfectly seasoned shrimp. The pretzel crab is... More

This was our first and last visit. The oysters were burdened with a thick wet breading fried to the point of being nearly inedible. However, the slaw was very good. We waited slightly over an hour to get our food. The server was very friendly and polite but apparently the only one present. The grouper was passable but nothing special.... More

Stopped in last week and not only did I have an amazing waiter, but he suggested the crab pretzel and it was not a disappointment. It was too big for me to finish at the restaurant so I had leftovers later that night. Don't let the standard Mall size pretzel fool you, there is a lot of crab imperial piled... More

I have been to this restaurant 3 times. I've had a decent crab soup, excellent crabs to go, and dry tasteless crabs another time. I found the service terrible, and the wait too long, both for food and service, even when the restaurant was virtually empty. I also considered the price way too high. One time, when I was waiting...

I was looking for a local place that served a good crab cake for my wife, close to Charles town. We found this place on the web rated very high. We were not disappointed. The décor is very thought out and the service is spot on. We ordered the BBQ bacon wrapped scallops for an appetizer. This could be the... More
