We loved everything about this dining experience. Our table overlooked the sun setting on the Chesapeake Bay. The waitress and her suggestions were first rate. We all had crab cakes but with different sides and loved every bite. Leave room for the strawberry shortcake...it is special.

The waitress was snappy when my wife asked specific questions of the menu item she was going to order. The reason is her digestive limits. Some people just do not get it that we all can not eat the same food. The shrimp scampi I ordered was not seasoned well and not made with fresh ingredients unless frozen peas, and... More

Narrows is located on Kent Narrows on the East Side of the Bay Bridge. There are windows on three sides of the dinning room overlooking the water: regardless of where you sit, there's a wonderful view of the water and ships sailing past. The food is very good: one of us had the portobello sandwich, the other the salmon on... More

After an afternoon of shopping, my husband daughter and I beat the rush and landed at a coveted table overlooking Chesapeake Bay, at about four-thirty on a beautiful Friday. We perused the menu, listened to lengthy specials, and ordered: crab imperial, a crab risotto, and crab cake combo with fried oysters. We enjoyed ample servings of Caesar and house salad.... More

On our way to Bethany Beach we stopped for lunch at The Narrows. Its a great place to take in the Chesapeake Bay and get ready for a week at the beach. The weather was sunny and warm and the views of the Bay gorgeous. And the food was superb. We had Crab cakes, a requirement, grilled rock fish (if... More

My sister and I had a wonderful lunch here on Wednesday. We tend not to eat "heavy", especially at lunch, and were VERY happy with all the selections on the appetizer section of the menu. We shared a refreshing Watermelon Salad, Crab Tart (which is actually a flatbread "pizza-style" presentation), and a Smoked Salmon Napoleon. All items were fresh and... More

We were delighted to return for dinner and to find it just as good if not better than last year. Scott, our waiter was extremely helpful, attentive and a pleasure. The Grilled Trout was yummy, the Black Bean soup very tasty and the Tuna appetizer was as good as last year. If you only have one night to dine in... More

I first read about the Narrows in Jane and Michael Stern's Road Food book 10 years ago. Their review said it was out of their normal price range but with such great crab cakes they made an exception and included it. Although I live in Michigan I've eaten at the Narrows many times - most recently twice last month -... More

Meal was good, not great, but above average! We were with a group of friends for dinner on a Saturday evening. Great atmosphere as the restaurant is right on the waterfront! Service was great! I had the crab cake/oyster platter and it was above average quality. I will try it again to see if it gets better. All-in-all, "The Narrows"... More

Enjoyed another early evening at The Narrows with the Happy Hour offerings. Tried a special appetizer of scallops with saffron sauce. Best dish ever at The Narrows. We hope they add it to their regular menu. Looking forward to going back and also enjoy the crab cakes, which are the best on the eastern shore.

Thank Ron8888
