We saw this place on Triple D...went for lunch. Great food, not overwhelmingly expensive. Unlikely location, near Parkway.

A few friends and I were on our way to Ocean City when we passed this place when we decided to turn around and give it a try. To start we all shared an order of fried pickles. They were so crispy and not greasy or oily at all. They were perfect! For my lunch I ordered the Crab Cake... More

I pass this place all the time and I kept wondering about it. Tonight I decided to pull over and check it out. After reading some reviews I decided to give it a try. First of all, the menu link on here is outdated. The prices have gone up quite a bit. I can't help but wonder if this menu... More

We followed prior reviews but ended up being very disappointed. The Maryland lump crab cake was no lumps and 75% filler. The special cream of crab soup was about as thick as wallpaper paste and somewhat flavorful. This will never be recommended as a must go to place by us. Perhaps the grilled cheese is better.

This isn't a place you'd stop in if you didn't know how good it was. I had the crab melt and it was stuffed full of crab and the bread was nice and buttery toasted. I took out so I cannot say anything about the service, but the girl at the counter was very friendly. I had a cannoli and... More

We have been passing this place for years every weekend on our way to Ocean City, NJ and have always wanted to try it. Then I found out it was on Diners, Drive-in and Dives not too long ago and figured I had to try it now. So we ventured over on a rainy afternoon around 1pm. Only a few... More

Just stopped in for a few apps. It was 5pm and the place was practically empty so I hesitated but I was pleasantly surprised. We ordered the buffalo shrimp, coconut shrimp, crab balls, Manhattan clam chowder and crab soups. Everything and I mean everything was good. The crab balls were my favorite. Get the sriracha sauce if you like it... More

The restaurant is very cozy and as soon as I walked in I was greeted with smiles and welcoming. We had the cream of crab soup that was out of this world. A MUST try is the crabby fries and the desserts. The crab melt was PHENOMENAL! Jen our server was very attentive and the place was very clean. The... More
