Nothing special. Expected more based on reviews. Very mediocre crab cakes. Park is available but hard to spot.

It was a long time ago, but I have never ever wanted to go back. The most memorable aspect was some sort of seafood with a globby white sauce on top. That said, the decor/design of the place is really awesome.

Have relatives that live in the area and we've been going to Crisfield Sea Food for years, no trip to the DC area is complete without a stop at Crisfield, but buyer beware, if you're a food snob or country club type that needs your butt kissed stay away, you won't like it and will probably make up bad stuff...

The decor probably hasn't been updated since this place opened, so if you like "old" this is your place. The service was friendly, but not noteworthy. The fish was fine, but nothing unique about it.

We bought food to share between two adults. Pan fried chicken was small, cole slaw running, pepsi was small like airplane size.

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The place was a little out of date, fashion wise.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
