Looking for raw oysters on New Years Eve brought us here. Service was extremely good. Oysters were very fresh and tasty. Also had fried calamari again very good. Portions were a little small. But overall really enjoyed

If like your food deep fried, breaded, and salty, you'll love this place. If you like your crab cake to be...well, just crabs and balanced delicate seasoning, this is not the place. I had the crab cake & soft shell crab, and had too much...More

Recently our family members had a delicious meal at Kingfisher's. We did make a reservation because there were 10 of us, with two children. They were very accommodating to our group. The menu items were local favorites, including crab cakes, soft shell crab, shrimp, salmon,...More

We visited Kingfishers for the second time, the first being about 5 years ago, good selection of craft beers and sitting outside is relaxed. My only real gripe is that the last time the crab cakes were excellent, this time they were ok and not...More

Had dinner here and enjoyed a great outdoor dining experience. Had the “petite” crabcake and unless you have a very large appetite, it is way big enough. It is full of lump crab meat ... a true Maryland crab cake delight! There are so many...More

When in Maryland I like to eat crab! The Kingfishers crab cakes have very little other than crab which is what I like. Had their two cake dinner with coleslaw and fries. Will come back here next year..

My wife and I traveled to the Chesapeake's western shore to check out Historic St. Mary's, but the star attraction on our journey was Kingfishers! We enjoyed the blue crabs and fries so much during our first dinner there, sitting at the water's edge, that...More

They make the best crab cakes; all backfin, little filler, broiled to a crisp golden brown, moist inside and no Old Bay seasoning. Plain and simple, accompanied with french fries and cole slaw. Pleasant wait staff.

The crab cake was very very good. However, a word of warning … market price listing for crab cake sandwich. For me on this day in August '18 was $26. Probably OK if you are ready for it. I wasn't.
