“Excellent service and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

While on vacation in Ocean City we got distracted about the time and went to this establishment 15 minutes before closing, did know what to expect but have to say one of the best meals we had in OC. Food was excellent one of the best rib & veal chop we've had in ages. The waiter was excellent and mad us feel at home even that we were so late in the evening . You have to try this place if you can. We would have returned for a second time but were leavening for home.

“Wonderful meal and great sunset !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Probably our 6th visit to this wonderful restaurant. The food has never disappointed, but the real draw for us is that you never feel rushed. You are encouraged to take your time with your meal and even chat over a drink afterwards. Great place to go for a special evening.

“what a suprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We went to Fresco's on a whim and what a wonderful surprise. It is fine dining, but was great with a 6 year old. Our waiter Chris was the best! The food was delicious. Try the cream of crab soup it's divine. We also had linguine Bolognese and ravioli. Everything was great. The crème Brule was the best I have ever had. It looks a little overgrown from the street but do try it!! You won't be disappointed.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We have been going to Fresco's for years; we try to get there 3-4 times a year when we stay in OC. It is a beautiful restaurant on the bay, they take reservations, my children love it, and the staff is very catering.
