Clean unassuming seafood joint. Shrimp cocktail very good. Crab tots unusual and quite tasty. Baby kale salad makes a good meal. Fish and chips very good. Creamy crab soup excellent. They have a wide range of beers available.

A small diner with super friendly service. There crabs and crab cakes are really good. The value is what stands out. You can find food as good or better at other places but you will likely pay more.

It doesn’t look great from the outside, but once through the door I was hooked. A beautiful, querky, ocean themed restaurant as fresh as the food they serve. I went for fish and chips - yes I’m british. The cod was perfectly cooked, the batter...More

This is awesome! Thanks for taking the time to share your experience. We have been working on that fish and chip recipe for 7 years to get it perfected! We are big fans of Leo Burdocks by the way.

We ordered a half bushel of #1 steamed crabs and drove over an hour to pick them up. When we opened the box of crabs, we were shocked to discover that the box was 2/3 full of claws, and had only about 2 dozen small,...More

Fantastic Maryland crab house. Done perfectly. And terrific sides, especially the hush puppies. A highlight of a trip to the Eastern shore.
