Decided to eat dinner here since we did not want to cook in our timeshare. Ordered crabcakes and there were pretty good. Lots of lump crab meat used in them. Salads could have been a little fresher, but ok. Service was fine.

A born Marylander and I have been coming to OC for more than 20 years and I have tried crabcakes everywhere. The all lump broiled crab cake is divine. Don't bother ordering anything else.

We eat here often. Surprisingly, for breakfast a lot. Their food is fantastic, if a little on the expensive side. I wish they'd get a high quality steak on the menu.
