“wonderfull atmosphere, food, iffy bar service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Love this new restaurant in my neighborhood on the water. Food a bit more inventive and fresh for our area. music on Thursday wonderful after a long day of work. Nice happy hour. My only negative bartenders can be less then pleasant. Mixed drinks are less then a shot. so if you want to taste the liquor in your drink you will be disappointed and the bartenders don't appreciate the drink being sent back.

“Nice for waterfront dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

I had the crab cake, which was very tasty...all nice lump crab meat. My fellow diners had chicken salad which was also good. Service was good. We were there on Saturday for lunch and it was crowded. Lots of interested craft beer on tap.

“Crab cakes and sailboats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

A charming waterfront venue with friendly attentive service. The food was very fresh and tasty. The panko encrusted fried pickles were the perfect start, crisp, tart and juicy. Home made lemon caesar dressing provided a light alternative to the classic ceasar salad with a crab cake that was all crab and lightly grilled.
This little jewel is located on the Magothy River with slips available for arrival by boat or ample parking for land lubbers.

“Great restaurant poor service at the bar!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

This is a great place for dinner. Wonderful view with tasty food. Bar staff is another story. Very slow and not real friendly. With faster service, it would be perfect.

“Dinner with friends.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

A friend had seen a review that said it was one of "the best hidden" places. We had a group of 5 and arrived at 6pm. We had just missed happy hour. Seating inside was filled so we sat outside next to the water at the marina. It was a beautiful night. You can't beat the view.
Jonathan was our waiter and he introduced us to a new waiter that he was training. Throughout Jonathon was very attentive and friendly.
We ordered the crab dip ($14) that came in a bread bowl with three large soft pretzel sticks. The dip was very creamy and tasty and it didn't take long to be finished. We also had an extra order of three pretzel sticks ($7). We had a selection of drinks and beer. The price range was from $3.50 for a bud light draft to $8 for a grapefruit cruch.
Entrees included a plain burger $8, The Point burger; made with pickles, onion, bacon, & a sauce ($11), soft crab sandwich special ($15), and crab cake sandwiches ($16). Fries were $2 extra. The burgers were cooked as requested and flavorful. The soft shell was a bit greasy but had a good taste and was a large crab. For dessert we couldn't pass up the ice cream sandwich ($7), made with 2 chocolate chip cookies and vanilla bean icecream with chocolate chips. This did not go to waste.
We laughed because Jonathon kept telling us how "outstanding" everything was, but I can say he was absolutely right.
Overall we enjoyed our meal very much. Everything tasted very good. I thought it a bit pricey but will still go back when looking for a place to eat on that side of town.
Our bill with 20% tip came to $220.
