Affordable stop in Silver Spring for authentic eastern shore seafood! Don't expect many frills, but do expect tasty food!

Not much has changed at Crisfield's in decades, lending it a quirky vintage atmosphere. Nothing fancy, just good seafood served in old Maryland style. Sit at the counter if you like to watch oysters shucked.

we went here for a birthday dinner and thought it would be a nice "old school" kind of place. It was very meh at best. The food was mostly fried, overcooked and expensive. There are much better places with fresher, less expensive food nearby and we don't plan to return.

This isn't one of those new trendy, upscale, snooty places to dine on celeb chef seafood creations. Crisfield s is a decades old restaurant that still knows how to make seafood right. Try the rockfish when in season. Otherwise, you can't go wrong with crabcakes, fried shrimp, seafood platters and such...all done with experience and aplomb. Parking is behind the... More

The place was a little out of date, fashion wise. Didn't know what to expect when we arrived. There is a full bar when you walk in that you can dine at like most restaurants, but the hubby and I decided to dine at the tables. We were excited to order some oysters but we were informed that they were... More

Being from Savannah Georgia I am used to very good seafood. This place rocks ! Excellent crab cakes. Excellent fried shrimp. Their cocktail sauce has just enough heat to it that you can't stop eating it. The coke slaw is fresh and has just a hint of pepper to it. All in all excellent. Park in the garage down the... More

The best. You will not be disappointed. Very simple and very well prepared seafood. One of our favorite restaurants in Silver Spring. It isn't fancy, and the food is well prepared.

Fun place the atmosphere is very family old time. The food is wonderful. My granddaughter had Shrimp Norfolk, which she loved. Coleslaw is not to be missed tart and not too creamy. I had grilled Flounder, wow cooked perfectly. The crab cakes were also delicious. They have wine and beer. Parking can be a challenge but it's worth it.

Crisfield`s is the go to place for delicious seafood whenever my family wants to celebrate a special occasion. I drank my first Bud there with my Dad when I turned 18. Back in the 60`s the legal age in MD was 21 where we lived. You have to look past the 50`s diner devour because the bar drafts and crabcakes... More
