From the outside you might just pass it by, we didn't and we were very surprised. We sat on the deck after a long day on the beach. The service was great and the food was excellent.

This place is sort of seedy, but definitely worth stopping for a cold one and some fairly decent Mexican cuisine when leaving the beach after a day of sun and fun. The wait staff is cordial and efficient and tend to make up for the less than "white glove" appearance of this old favorite. My personal favorite is their home... More

Visited this restaurant first week of June 2016. First off place is a dump. Our waitress was new that day. Told her and pointed to exactly what I wanted on the menu. Wrong item was brought out but went ahead and ate some of my meal. Food was not that good, tacos were mushy from bean juice. When bill came... More

We had lunch here at the beginning of Senior Week. Our server was great - happy to make recommendations, prompt with everything we needed, checked in a little later, too. You MUST try the shrimp ceviche on the apetizer menu. It's meal-sized and delicious. Best I have ever had.

They have a sign out front saying "Trip Advisor Sucks". I have no idea why they are rated so poorly on TA. The only negative was that they only take cash. All the food was excellent. The ceviche was authentic and near perfect. Our server was attentive and fun. I would definitely go back.

What a cool place. We visit everytime we are in Ocean City. The place is a bit of a dive, but I believe it was featured on one of those diners and dive shows. There are outside booths to sit in, or you can go sit down in the bar area. The walls and the bathrooms are covered in cool... More

Great food and great atmosphere. The customer is always first in this joint. Like some hot pepper sauce? Best selection on the East coast!

We always manage to make our way down to Peppers when in OC. Maybe because the bartender is always friendly and the drinks are cold or because we just enjoy a good dive! Either way, we weren't disappointed! This time we tried the Old Bay seasoned wings and they were delicious! Served piping hot and cooked perfectly (no one likes... More
