We made reservations and had many people recommend this restaurant. A few concerns I had. We were seated in the bar area and we were only offered their fine dining menu and not a bar menu. It was quite loud as they take care of...cleaning the dishes from the bar area at the bar. The crashing of dishes while trying to enjoy a $30++ meal was disturbing. I would try them again in warmer weather and eat outside on the bridge. Wait staff was attentive enough but not overly for the price.More

We live in the area and this was one of our favorite restaurants, but it seems as though a disappointing change has taken place. We made reservations two days ahead of time for the patio room and upon our arrival were told that our reservations...were two hours later than what we made them for. I would suggest getting the name of the person who takes your reservation. That was my first mistake. We were placed at an inside table close to three packed booths, which didn't leave much room for social distancing. The hostesses seemed as though they could have cared less and there was nothing done to rectify the matter. Our waitress was friendly enough, but after we placed our order, we waited fifteen to twenty minutes for our salads. When we finished our salads, again we waited another fifteen minutes for our entree. Our vegetables were hot, but our steaks were cold. By the way we could not order our steaks as medium cooked, you have to order them well done or rare. It was not our waitresses fault. We're disappointed, because even though the meals are a bit pricy it used to be better. There are too many good restaurants in Ocean City, to experience this again.More

Delicious! & excellent service! Laini our sweet young server was the icing on the cake to our delicious meals. She was kind and especially patient listening to our moms stories. We’ve been before and will be back again! The Baltimore club and soft crab sandwich...were especially good!More

Late dinner and it was busy for this time of year. Had special filet with shrimp scampi (wife) and scallops (me), sides were mushrooms (wife) and fries (me). Both dishes were very good and our server was appropriately attentive. Very relaxed and friendly place.

Called in for takeout order 3 items, Asian lettuce wrap, wings, and Hawaiian shrimp. Was told it would take 30-40 minutes ok understandable it’s a lazy Thursday night and apparently their super busy! Go to pick up my phone paid and I notice the bag...seems kinda light. So I check the bag and it’s missing my Asian lettuce wraps, which was the main reason I order here! Melissa tells me they no longer carry them on the menu and the young girl who took my order forgot and didn’t have a number to call me be. Why wait until I pay to tell me you didn’t fulfill my order?! So I canceled the whole damn order got my $30+ back! Just very incompetent for a well established restaurant!More

My Gf and I ate here last night for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed! The food was delicious. I had chicken Chesapeake, she had tuna. We had a great view of the water from our table. Our waitress Loren was the absolute bomb! She...was not only nice and friendly, but her knowledge of the menu was incredible. Good descriptions of everything. It is my bday weekend, so she was also nice enough to bring us a candle for out incredible dessert Pie in a Jar - OMG! The bomb! PB mousse and cookie bits! So good! Our dinner was so good, and Loren was so nice and friendly we made sure to tell the manager. Yes, it is a bit pricey, but well worth it for a dinner on vacation!More
