“Little Gem in Port Deposit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

BackFin Blues is, bar none, our favorite restaurant in the Harford/Cecil County area. We dine there frequently, and my wife usually gets their softshell crabs (in season). I lean towards one of their delicious steaks, usually with their ASTOUNDING House Salad as a starter.

“Best brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

With a weekend home nearby, this place never disappoints. A late brunch with a bloody mary and fabulous food.The service is excellent. All in all we return again and again .Sans cocktails the cost difference compared to a nearby diner is little considering to the excellence of the food.

“Best Food between Baltimore and Philadelphia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

While enjoying a trip to Hollywood Casino in Perryville, check out Backfin Blues restaurant in Port Deposit. It is only 6 minutes away from the Casino and worth the effort. Great drinks, great staff and delicious food. Check out the carb cakes. Best in Maryland without a doubt.

“Backfin Blues”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Meeting a friend for birthday lunch/drink. She from Baltimore area and me from Delaware. Had checked on-line for places to eat. After shopping in Perryville, stop at Hollywood Casino, left for Port Deposit to find this restaurant. Finally found it and what a quaint, very nice place. Food was very good, good drinks, met the chef/owner, food cooked to order. Nice for afternoon lunch, or an evening dinner with friends. Looking for a good day: Try shopping (not great anymore, but a few shops still there), casino, always a good time, and drive 7 miles to this restaurant. Very centrally located.

“Superb meal, service was fantastic!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

My husband took me to dinner here for my Birthday, our first visit, the food was Incredible, fixed with such care and presentation. The Crab cakes were the best I have ever had and the sweet potato was the sweetest that I have ever had. My husband had the Chicken Oscar and it was divine. ...We started with the Martini Crab Cocktail, which was not on the menu, but Chef Bob made us both one and it was fantastic.
We also tried the Blazin Crab soup and it was delicious....We will definitely go back and eat again...very soon I am sure....
