We had heard from so many people how wonderful the Grove Market is, so we finally decided to try it. The reservation process can be daunting, but keep working on it -- it's really worth it! The restaurant is tiny, about 8 tables plus 4 seats at the bar, and the atmosphere is beach-funky (my husband says eclectic), which adds... More

Reservations a must but you won't know if they are good until a few days before. Excellent wine selection and to die for food offerings. Home made deserts. Farm to table. Very fresh seafood. Menu changes daily. CASH ONLY......plan to spend about $150+ per couple.....well worth it!

We were able to get a table on their closing for the season weekend, so we took our friends for dinner. They were wonderfully pleased w the experience. From the staff, to the amazing food, to even the other folks in the restaurant - this place is wonderful! The menu continues to change based on what is available to them,... More

Went on a quick road trip from my Mother's house in Lewes, Delaware to try "The Grove Market" In Bishopville, Maryland. It met our expectations, it's reminiscent of an old Maryland shore saloon, nothing pretentious. The food was outstanding, no paper menus, our server presented the offerings to several tables at a time reciting the menu. The crab dishes are... More

I'm in the minority, Flounder encrusted with macadamia nut ruined the fish, as was the Lamb chops overwhelmed by a berry sauce. 3 Scallops in a broth of sausage and vegetables were unimpressive. The plastic chairs and glasses as well as the knife and fork, may be this eclectic resturant, but next time I will find a better way to... More

We are summer residents in Ocean City and get to go to The Grove Market three or four times a season. A real highlight of our annual visit to the Eastern Shore. A very close friend of ours was a guest of ours for a few days, and we just had to take her to The Grove! She has been... More

No menus no prices no credit cards no early arrivals ....No problem. Always a great choice with their regular smoked fish selections and duck. This time scallops with chorizo sausage was my choice and it was excellent. The food is wonderful and the back woods cottage shack adds to its charm

Don't be put off by the "interesting" décor. The food and service are outstanding. It's hard to get a reservation but we were lucky enough to be able to take our teenagers there this summer. (their first time). We basically ordered almost everything on the menu and it was all fabulous. They are know for the duck and it's with... More

I've written other reviews about this GREAT restaurant in past years, and once again we were treated with great food, an adventurous menu, gracious hosts, terrific service and one of most unique dinning venues we have ever been. Our guests had been there before and were thrilled to find out that we had been able to get reservations. Every course... More

What a great day several years ago that we happened into the Grove! It has become our favorite restaurant - not just while at our second home in OCMD - but favorite anywhere! As others have said - it is eclectic. It is hard to get reservations. It is unusual. You eat on stack chairs. It is small. Etc., etc.,... More
