Wonderful broiled crab cakes and tuna. A little pricey but well worth it. All you can eat specials and they keep them coming. Fried chicken too. Open only Seasonally. Tasty peanut butter pie and apple crisp.

I'm very picky and I have to say, it was good. Our waitress Lori was very kind, friendly and attentive. I got the broiled seafood platter and it was cooked perfect. The shrimp and scallops could have been bigger, but they were very tasty. After driving by this place for 10 plus years to go into OC for dinner, I... More

We had a decent meal here nothing to brag about and it was a little pricey. The service was fantastic but the food needs a little love.

Wanted to go to this place because it was sort of 'off the beaten path'. Thought that it would be much better than crowded Ocean City, MD. So we took the drive over to Assateague. The service was fine, but that's about the only positive part. I ordered the blueclaws - large. They were not good. First one was light... More

Roadside and ultra-convenient to anyone coming or going from the Maryland side of Assateague National Seashore. We dropped in for a beer and an appetizer. There is no bar area, so we sat in the dining room. We were seated quickly and then waited 10-15 minutes for our server to take our drink order. The restaurant wasn’t busy. Another server... More

We stopped here after visiting Frontier Town with 4 grandchildren and were seated promptly. Ou server was pleasant and the restaurant is "kid friendly". They have a good kids menu. We ordered crab dip as an appetizer and 4 different children's meals. My daughter-in-law and I each ordered the single crab cake platter. The crab cake was good, but small... More

We have been eating at this restaurant for many years. The seafood is always fresh and delicious. My favorites are the flounder stuffed with crabmeat and the crab imperial, my husband usually orders the broiled fisherman's catch, and my sons like the all you can eat crabs and shrimp. The seafood is beautifully prepared and not over sauced or over... More
