Located minutes from Chesapeake Bay on the water is One Fish-Two Fish. We offer an alternative to formal dining, it's what we call "fun dining." The atmosphere is "upscale without the uppity." This unique feeling is created by a casual waterfront environment with boat access. The restaurant is centered around the Exhibition Kitchen with panoramic views of the Bay. The menu incorporates a blend of California style with fresh, local seafood. The wine list focuses on "boutique style" wines and is consistently recognized with the Wine Spectator "Award of Excellence." The staff strive to make this venue high energy but still elegant. The only thing we overlook is the water. See you there.

I have been here multiple times and the food is fantastic. The oysters appetizer are amazing, probably spent over a hundred on these alone. These are the best oysters around.

There was a large, noisy party the night we were there. Service was awful. Bread came after our entrees. Food was fair and definitely not worth the price

Right on the water with nice view of a fall sunset from the screened deck. Attentive service and great food. The mussel appetizer was very good and the halibut special was perfectly cooked.
