We had such a lovely dinner! The country rib and cowboy steak specials were extraordinary. Perfectly cooked, with wonderful accompaniments - the Brussels sprouts with pork belly were crisp and absolutely delicious. The portions are enormous and neither of us came close to finishing our...meals, although we did leave room for dessert! The berries were wonderful - fresh and generous enough to share. We were big fans when this place first opened and have seen it go though some ups and downs in consistency in the food and the service - but tonight was a complete home run - great food, perfectly executed at a reasonable price for the quality and the portion sizes. Great service from Vlad - attentive without being intrusive.More

Great specials. Food is fresh and creative. Always delicious. I eat there frequently and it is always exceptional even during times when the pandemic could have influenced their service.

I have tried to like this place since they opened. Today was my last attempt. The food is overpriced and poor quality and poorly prepared. Save your money and go someplace else. Awful.

We have dined here a number of times and always came away with favorable thoughts. Last night was different. Parking out front with an elder gentleman on a walker as our guest, we had to traverse the parking lot in total darkness. An extremely dangerous...scene and they heard about it as soon as we entered. My guess is that they were anxious to shut down because of an over-worked and depleted staff. Someone quickly turned on outside lights as we took our table. The next thing that got into my craw was our being seated in an area with four adjacent tables that had not been bused. Used dishes, glasses, utensils, napkins, etc. We were finishing our entrees before anyone started clearing tables. I get covid problems and staff calling in sick; nevertheless, not having clean surroundings has always been a turnoff. My shrimp dish was excellent; a steak/shrimp/ravioli dish was so-so and the steak part over-cooked and with a strange taste. Finally, a Shepherds Pie was mostly ignored. Our waitress was attentive and helpful, the highlight of the evening.More

Have been there a few times. Love their Happy hour wine list as well as bar bites are a great price. You can fill up for under $20! Dinner was wonderful as well. Soup is made fresh each day and you can not go wrong!...Very nice staff as well.More

One of the best places to eat in Ocean Pines. We often get carry out too. They certainly have their act together, even with employee shortages. Service and food was great.

Kudos to this restaurant. They made the parking lot so cute with lights and tables. Hand sanitizer on the table and we had the best server, Chloe. She gave awesome suggestions and was so pleasant, efficient and friendly. It was our first night in town...and set our vacation off on the right foot. Amazing.More

Service: The six of us sat outside a little after 6 p.m.. Took our drinks forever to arrive -- the waitress told us repeatedly the bartender was "overwhelmed," and she seemed unhappy to be working, too. She complained she had been "in the sun" all...day long. The food took forever, too, and when it came, it was 4 dinners, not 6. The fifth came 15-20 minutes later, and the 6th came another 15 or 20 minutes after that. Food: The hamburger was WAY overdone and inedible. The fish in the $23 fish & chips was better than McDonalds Filet of Fish but the "chips" were an oily, soggy, inedible mess. The Frogmere Risotto sounded interesting, but the seafood was overcooked, the dish was overloaded with too much corn and too little risotto, which was pasty/congealed under a strange, tomato sauce. Prices: They're high compared to what you get. Plan on spending $40 per person, which equals one drink + entree.More

Dishes were dirty and half of the food was cold. I don't think I'll be back anytime soon. I don't know if there is a new owner or management but something changed and it not good.

Looking forward to never returning! Underwhelmed the first time. Decided to give it another try. We each ordered one of the specials. Neither were worth the price. Don’t mind paying for good food, but 2 out of 2 tries that hasn’t happened. Will return to...try again if we hear management/ownership has changed. I know COVID has hurt a lot of restaurants but there was plenty of wait staff, they just seemed to be busy with something other than their patrons.More

Stopped at this place after a Dr's appt. The food was terrible & overpriced . The menu jackets were covered in something sticky..The cream of crab was luke warm & had to be sent back. Very little crabmeat for $9 a cup. Ordered a burger...& fries. Burger was overcooked & fries looked & tasted like reheats. Husband got cheese steak which he said was ok but he became sick on the drive home. The bill was $55 for a burger, a cheese steak, 1 ice tea & 2 cups of soup. We left most of the food on the plates.. Should have left when we walked in & only saw one other couple seated. Will never go back!More

Family stopped in for dinner on Mother’s Day. 4 of us had burgers and good helping of fries. The burgers were all cooked to perfection and were probably the best tasting burger I have had in Ocean City Area. My son had the duck burrito...and daughter in law had salad with salmon. They both said the food was very good. We then had donuts which came with white chocolate and raspberry swirl for dessert. Our waitress was from Romania and she was very attentive to our needs and was very pleasant. A great experience to celebrate Mother’s Day. Highly recommendMore

What a wonderful find! We moved from Ocean Pines 6 years ago and this was our first visit. to meet some old neighbors who still live here and suggested we eat lunch here. The food was very good and the service exceptional thanks to Jeanie...who was really pleasant, fun and efficient. Most of the guests were eating outside (Covid) but the inside is really a nice, clean and new concept. We had tacos, crab cake sliders and burgers. All was great. .More

Came to have dinner (2 people) at 7 PM on a Tuesday. Stood at the hostess table for about 5 minutes; then a hostess came and led us to a table outside. A waiter showed up, said his name was Marshall, took our drink orders...(two draft beers), and said that he will be right back with our waters and drinks. We never saw him again the rest of the night. We sat and sat, until finally a manager showed up with our beers (no waters), and took our dinner order. After that we sat for about 30 minutes where absolutely nothing happened - no silverware was brought, no water, no bread, no food. We left after sitting for about 30 or 40 minutes. I went to the hostess station, offered to pay for our beers and asked to cancel the food order. To their credit, they did not charge us for the beers. We left. Needless to say, we'll never be back. Fair advice - avoid this place. Try to find something with a more functional service.More

Just returned from a meal at Pines Public House with my adult son. To say the food was awful is definitely an understatement. Drinks arrived and eventually a menu. We order appetizers and dinner. The mozzarella balls were lukewarm and sitting on a bed of...dried out marinara sauce with no flavor. The cream of crab soup was lukewarm and tasteless. I ordered a hamburger with fries and my son ordered the crab stuffed shrimp. We never once were asked if we needed anything. The barmaid had no idea how to work with customers. The burger arrived lukewarm and the fries were ice cold. No point in sending them back as I do not think they would have come back any better. The stuffed shrimp were lukewarm and the risotto could have been used for wallpaper paste. The brussel sprouts with not cooked through and like the rest of the meal were lukewarm. We were never asked if everything was okay nor were we asked if we wanted another drink. I live locally and now I know why I do not go to the Pines Pub. I guess I had high hopes that during the pandemic they would be striving for excellence. WRONG.More
