Description
We keep the tradition of great Maryland seafood alive! Here, you can enjoy our famous, nationally recognized “best” crab cakes in Ocean City. We offer a wide variety of all your seafood favorites, as well as daily “fresh catch” specials. We offer free boat docking for customers. Our large open deck is perfect for steamed crabs while taking in the beautiful view of the harbor. It’s seafood fit for a Captain! For over 30 years, it has been our philosophy to serve fresh boat to table entrees and lite fare at the Ocean City Fish Company. We have maintained all the traditional recipes, most notably our award winning Captain’s Galley Crab Cake. Our great atmosphere allows you to sit back, relax and enjoy a great variety of cocktails, beer, wine and entertainment. Our servers look forward to helping you make this your new favorite restaurant and bar.
