Food was pretty good. Excellent soft crab sandwich and crab cakes. Fries were lack luster, the coleslaw was ok.

Found this place not far from the Hyatt in Cambridge, and we were disappointed by the crabs. Very hit and mess with the 18 we shared. Some were inedible (maybe 3). Some were OK. Some were great. It was $60 a dozen but this included a variety of sizes from teeny to one huge one. Many of the crabs had... More

Nice local eatery. Soft crabs were good and crispy. Crab cakes were also very good. Lump crabmeat and not much filler. Recommend for an informal lunch.

Took the family here for an impromptu dinner. We sat outside near the bar. Food is priced decent. The menu is not huge so knowing what you want is easy to figure out. I got the Mahi Mahi. It had good flavor but was over cooked and dry. My wife got the crab cake sandwich was good and flavorful. The... More

Crabs were HUGE, heavy and sweet! Soft crab sandwiches are awesome. Staff is attentive and usually a breeze at the tiki bar

Very basic indoor/outdoor dining place. Extremely casual, on the water with a large outdoor patio with bar and tables and a large interior with bar, tables and pool table....a fun place. Food is good...the crab cakes were excellent, soft shell crabs sautéed and fried were both great, and rock fish with crab imperial was a solid good! Menu is limited... More

Came in off the water for a drink. Enjoyed a rum bucket and crab dip appetizer. Bar tender was friendly and from Salisbury University where we all went and 2 of our children go there now. Small world. Casual dock-side bar to relax and enjoy the day.

In all fairness, we did not eat a full meal here, and normally, I wouldn't write a review for just an appetizer. That said, the Crab Dip appetizer was excellent - loaded with crab and baked with a cheese topping, and served with just baked fresh bread. Add that to a great view from the deck and a cold Miller...

Four of us went to dinner at the marina in Oxford. Outside seating was dubious because thunderstorms were forecast and the weatherman was right! The menu sounds better than the food actually is. Softshell crabs with a house made crab cake was expensive as a special. You couldn’t order just the soft shells which were all I wanted. They were... More

There are fancier and pricier places in Oxford as any Chesapeake Bay boater can well attest to, but if you want a nice local place (joint) with seating right on the dock with good views this place fills the bill. We started with an appetizer to share--the shrimp and mahi mahi cerviche which came with diced tomatoes, purple onions a... More
