Came to OC, along with hundreds of educators, for the annual Maryland Educator's Association Convention. Knowing that very few restaurants are open , I looked forward to taking my son to Layton's for lunch. I also planned to take some apple fritters home to my parents. Hours were random, got there Friday and it was closed. Went Saturday and food... More

Layton's at 16th Street is a uniquely decorated place. Beginning with the murals of marine creatures outside to the color coordinated interior décor everything flows in a motif evocative of the sea. The staff are friendly, efficient, and busy. The breakfast food is generally good. I did think their biscuits were more heavy and dense than light and flaky, and... More

This is always our first stop in when we come to Ocean City & our last stop when leave. You can not ask for better food, better service or more pleasant people. We've been coming here for over 25 yrs & have NEVER had a poor meal, poor service or wait staff that was disgruntled. The doughnuts are awesome also... More

A solid winner! Extensive menu and each time we've been there, the food has been fast, hot, and good. Generous portions and an attentive waitstaff.

We went on a Sunday morning around 10 am, and expected to wait. That was fine. We like the breakfast at Laytons, and we were prepared to wait. After about a 25 minute wait, our party of 5 was taken into a booth by the bar, that seats 4. We explained to the young man we had 5, to which... More

I have been visiting OCMD for the last 20 plus years. After our drive, this is one of the first places that we visit after we check in. Our favorite is the cheeseburger sub. Often replicated never duplicated.

Stopped for breakfast while in town. Service was good....prices were a bit high and the food was just okay. Omelet came with a slice of processed cheese congealed on top, not very appetizing looking. My breakfast also had gummy looking melted cheese on top.

Thank Sue K
