BJ's is an Ocean City staple and a regular stop on our OC restaurant rotation. Here are my recommendations based on visiting this restaurant many times. Whenever available, try fresh oysters from the raw bar. We had "Seaside Salts" this weekend and they were so sweet and fresh, with a nice, strong cocktail sauce. Try to get a bayfront table and stay for sunset - the views on a clear day are just beautiful. There is a pair of breeding ospreys that you can watch, as well as a daily duck feeding (great for kids to watch) every day at 1 pm. Try the crab imperial pizza (in the appetizer section), it is great to share but could easily fill you up as a meal if you had it by yourself. Very rich! The Maddie's Peanut Btter Pie is also out of this world - so rich and delicious. Save room for that one! They usually give you a $5 off coupon for your next visit, and we always seem to have one in the wallet. They have live music on weekend nights and the bands are pretty loud, so you might want to ask to be seated in the front room if you are eating dinner anywhere near 9 pm. They have a very nice outdoor deck/seating in summer, so if you visit when it's warm, ask to sit outside! The staff is very dedicated and we see the same servers there year after year, so that tells me they love their jobs and are making good money. This place is also jam packed on St. Patty's Day and they had a full bagpipe procession come through the resuaurant last year, which was pretty neat to see/hear. We have also had Thanksgiving here and they offered a traditional meal with all the trimmings for a very reasonable price, as well as the regular menu. Nightlife consists of a late 40's to 60's crowd year round FYI. Enjoy!
