Always nice to have a view of the water while dining and even nicer when food is good. Only complaint was that the place had little charm. On the dark, almost dingy, side. (And salad bar is only so-so). Food was very good 😊

If there was any alcohol it would have been white wine. I don't think any of the seafood menu items included pork/chicken/meat broth.

I am formerly from Maryland.Growing up the family would get together and go downtown to the Polish section of Highlandtown. We went to Obricky's ( I spelled it incorrectly) .In those days I would get a crab cake and order one Fried hard shell crab. The other family members would eat their crab cakes and a bushel of crabs. I would eat my Fried Crab. This crab was dipped in some sort of seasoned coating all over the crab. It was a long time ago. Do you have Fried hard shell crabs.Thank You.
