Our good friends suggested we go to this restaurant last week. We went for dinner and were a little skeptical since our last visit fell short of our expectations. We were pleasantly surprised that this visit was much better then our lunch visit. There is a different wait staff for dinner, I believe, and our friends know one of the... More

The former Captain's Galley is very good. We had soft shell crabs which were tender and lightly battered; Tuna med-rare and mildly spicey - I recommend this, not a big spice person and this was just right; and my Dad had Salmon, medium which he really liked. And for dessert there was coconut cheesecake which we shared and I would... More

This restaurant, formerly known as Captain's Galley, has been an Ocean City institution for decades. It has always been our go to place for crab cakes and crab imperial. During the season, you would wait up to an hour for a table. The restaurant recently changed hands and, on our recent visit, it was nearly empty. The salad bar was... More

Met some family friends here for dinner/happy hour. Really enjoyed their $1 Oysters on their happy hour special (they will even shuck them for you). Very fresh food and delicious. Also like that you can dock your boat and sit outside to enjoy your meal. Our wait staff was very friendly and helpful.

My wife and I have been patronizing the Captain's Galley for 20 years or more and were disappointed to see it go. We have had dinner twice this summer at the Ocean City Fish Company and I would rate the first experience as below expectations however the second experience was much improved over the first. Last evening, Bubba was our... More

We have been faithful customers here for many many years. After we visited in the spring we thought it was still good. Last evening we dined with a party of 3 adults and 3 children. They were "out of flounder" so I relented and ordered rockfish. It was a generous thick piece but dried up and very fishy. I left... More

The crab cakes are still the same deliciousness. The salad bar is still the same. The fresh fish was wonderful. We had the tuna, rockfish, crab cakes and chicken Chesapeake. All were delicious. You can get the fresh fish made a variety of ways and the seasoned way is the best. The coconut muffins were in the bread basket as... More

We had been here before when it was captains galley.... Only one time. That time we sat upstairs, this time downstairs. Both have a nice view but as far as the food we didn't see much of a change. Sure was hoping for more. Not in any hurry to return. Hubby had a burger which he almost always has and... More

In April, 2015, the storied Captain's Galley 2 restaurant was purchased. This 30 year landmark in West Ocean City was known for "the best Crab Cake in OC". The Captains Galley 2 brand was maintained for a season, while enhancing the quality and freshness of a few menu items and ingredients to stay true to Captain Joe's quality standards. Then, now as a group of owners, they collaborated on a plan for the re-naming of this new location and helped to form our company culture, staying true to the mission to provide the freshest local seafood, exceptional customer experience built on phenomenal service, lasting relationships and tradition. In 2016, renovations began on the Captains Galley 2 and was re-opened in March 2016 as The Ocean City Fish Company Restaurant and Dock Bar.
