Good service and good food. The cream of crab soup was excellent. My daughter had the crab mac and cheese and loved it. I had the pretzel appetitizer. It was exceptional.

My wife and I loved our meal. Everything was delicious. We started with MD Crab Soup and Crab Dip. Excellent choices. We followed that with their very popular crab cake platter and shrimp salad wrap. Fantastic. We can't wait to go there again!!!
