Description: Located minutes from Chesapeake Bay on the water is One Fish-Two Fish. We offer an alternative to formal dining, it's what we call "fun dining." The atmosphere is "upscale without the uppity." This unique feeling is created by a casual waterfront environment with boat access. The restaurant is centered around the Exhibition Kitchen with panoramic views of the Bay. The menu incorporates a blend of California style with fresh, local seafood. The wine list focuses on "boutique style" wines and is consistently recognized with the Wine Spectator "Award of Excellence." Stephen Michaels, owner, and his staff strive to make this venue high energy but still elegant. The only thing we overlook is the water. See you there.

“Lovely!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014 via mobile

Our first visit to this delightful restaurant. It was at sunset on a spectacular and comfortable day - the screened deck was a dream. Spacious and set up so that no table is too close to another. They don't skimp on the seafood. The crab bisque was loaded with lumps of crab, as was their delicious crab and shrimp scampi. A wonderful dining experience with only one complaint that kept it from being a perfect dining experience. The coffee. It was watery and not good. A rich roasted blend would have capped off the meal on a positive note but instead it was a dud. A restaurant this good should be outstanding in every way, and coffee is such a simple thing to get right. We will return to this restaurant again.

“A nice dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I had dinner here while in vacation, and enjoyed ourselves very much. It was a bit fancier than we expected, I sorry of felt under dressed in jeans and a t-shirt, but the food was great and so wad the service. Small portions would be my only complaint.

“Would have been excellent if not for weird experience with wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

First off this is a difficult restaurant to find. It is located on a Pier at the end of a long driveway. We drove during daylight but I would imagine it would be real tough to find at night. The restaurant itself is beautiful. Open Kitchen, nice bar, beautiful view. Food was excellent and not cheap. We ordered a bottle of wine and the server had a hard time getting the cork out. When she did it exploded with most of the cork falling into the wine. To my surprise the server left to get a strainer to pour the wine and remove some of the cork fragments. This does not happen often but on the few occasions when this happens I have always been provided a new bottle. Then I was served a taste of the wine, with cork fragments visible, to see if I thought is was bad. I could not believe it. Just get another bottle. It was a $40 bottle of wine, not $400. Other than this mistake the experience, view and night out was very good.
