We went for the lobster night special. People around us were enjoying Maryland steamed crabs. It was noisy and fun. Needless to say, the lobsters were great and a good time was had by all, helped by excellent service from our waitress.

I took my friend to this restaurant for her birthday. I never heard of it before but she had been there previously. This restaurant is excellent. They specialize in seafood even though other food is available. The crabs they serve are gigantic; you won't be hungry when you leave. Beyond the food, the service is excellent. They really care.

We wanted seafood and after a lot of googling, this one was chosen -- it was also recommended to us. Ready for crab or whatever they had a 12 oz prime rib special so that is what I had -- terrific. We had crab cakes for appetizer -- also delicious. The wife had chicken stuffed with crab and loved it.... More

Best crabs period. There is not a better crab house in the state of Maryland. They always have a great selection of sizes to choose from. The seasoning is perfect. Get a crab soup, some steamed shrimp with onions, corn of the cob, and fries too. All delicious. I cannot express how delicious the crabs are and year round too!... More

I especially like the crab fluff and clams casino. Decor is a little dated but food is good. Food and service were good.

I have been here several times and and varying times of day or evening. The staff is AMAZING! The food is WONDERFUL!! The atmosphere is good for business or a party. I believe SeaSide is able to monitor the crabs, and I would guess the other seafood from The time it is caught to when it hits the table. Everything... More
