“Awesome dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2011

We arrived around 7:15 on a Saturday night without a reservation for a party of 7. We waitied less than an hour for our table. Everything was great from the drinks at the bar, the food, the service and the ambiance. We will definatly be back!

“Poorly managed; Long Wait; Manager Refused to Respond Many Times”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2011

This place has everything going for it, but its management and possibly its staff are overwhelmed. We arrived early for dinner on a Saturday evening and sat outside, and waited 2 hours for food service. The order was taken fairly quickly. We asked to see the manager several times. The waiter told us that she was very busy and a little angry and in the back. He actually told us she cursed at him, and threw away an order of food we sent back because it was wrong. A table adjacent to us, equally disappointed with the service, asked multiple times to see her too, as one of their dinners didn't come out. Our order was incorrect when it came out. We've eaten around the world, in its many corners. This place wins the prize for WORST EVER restaurant. The upshot--that visit has become legendary in our family, and will provide years of unforgettable train wreck moments.

“Very good food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2009

We dined here on a Friday night in the summer. Made a reservation for 11, and were seated right away. Our table was in the main restaurant but set apart enough that it was intimate seating for us and we didn't have to worry about our sometimes boisterous group interfering with other diners. The wait staff was attentive and responsive. Creative food and specials covered the gamut from seafood to American to Italian and accommodated the two vegetarians in our group. Drink menu drove the price up. I would come back again. It was a great location, right across the Longport bridge from Ocean City and overlooking a marina.

“Disappointment”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2008

The food was okay. The wait staff seemed a bit harried. The hostess (T) was obnoxious. One of the bartenders (J) was both personable and served wonderful drinks. It seems each time that we go there, however, there are new waiters and new bartenders. We have not seen (J) there in the last few trips and wonder why there is such a big turnover of personnel.

“Very expensive for so so food and service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2008

Save you money and don't waste your time with this place...
It is NOT a crab house unless your a millionaire. The food is way overpriced as well as the drinks 7.50 a pop, (you won't have to worry about a DUI at this place) If your looking for a real crab house type atmosphere this ain't it. What you will find is a rather stuck up greeter and a equally snooty Waite staff. The food is OK but not worth the dollars they demand. I have been there twice, once for lunch at the bar with my wife, roast pork sandwiches and a couple drinks each, 70.00 with the tip and the bread was dreadful.
The second time was dinner with another couple and the experience was a little better but definitely not worth the money. The food was OK, the service slow, the atmosphere thick. You leave with a feeling of being fleeced.
