The pan seared scallops were delicious. Warm bread served with butter. Attentive service. Very glad this was recommended.

I was excited to hear that this restaurant at Dover Downs Casino was serving "all you can eat crab legs" for 28.95 on Tuesday night November 29th. My wife accompanied me but ordered grilled chicken instead. The crab legs served were of the lowest grade I have ever experienced. There was very little meat in them. I re-ordered several times...

We've ordered many different seafood entrees here and have found them all to be very tasty. Great spot for lunch or dinner. We like the high-top tables in the bar. Great place to try your first oyster shooter- not bad. Shark was cooked perfectly and the sides were hot. One visit was with 8 couples and they served us all... More

The atmosphere is very busy and noisy, lacking in any ambiance. The crab soup is memorable and large variety of fresh oyster from up and down the east coast.

We finally tried this restaurant on this visit. It was good. I had to send my tuna steak back because it was over cooked. The manager took care of it immediately. She waited while it was cook and served it to me. She just made us feel like she was prepared to go above and beyond. The prices are comparable... More

The Thai steak lettuce wraps were okay....I sorta wished the description had mentioned the rare steak that came with it. I didn't really care, but my wife doesn't care for it. I also had a couple bites that were extremely chewy.... I ordered the fried Maryland seafood entree....It came with 2 shrimp, 2 scallops, 2 oysters, a crab cake, fries,... More

Description
We developed our classic 1900's Oyster House as a way to pay tribute and homage to the great tradition of enjoying oysters, these little aphrodisiacs. We have spared no expense to create an Oyster House that transforms you back to a simpler time of food, fun, and merriment, in a local watering hole. It is our joy to serve you the freshest seafood, the finest handcrafted beers, and a superior wine selection!
