We stoped here to have lunch. We had the crab dip as an appetizer and it was delicious. We had 2 bowls of soup one Maryland crab and one mushroom. Both were excellent. I asked for a single crab cake broiled. It was so good. With 2 drinks the bill was $39.50. The place is inside a charming old hotel... More

If one can say that Berlin has been undergoing a renaissance, The Atlantic Hotel and its restaurant can take a great deal of the credit. What the town has lost in its every-day, small-town character -- and it has lost just about all of it -- it has gained by transforming itself into a top-notch tourist destination. And this place...

This is the town and hotel that was in the movie, "The Run-A-Way Bride"! I started with a Cosmo, which was perfectly made! I had the Ceaser Salad and a Crab Cake! We had the Creme Brulee for dessert (celebrating my sister's birthday). Everything was perfect. We did start off with the crab dip. It was served with a variety... More

Just back from a 4 day trip to Berlin, MD where I stayed at The Atlantic Hotel with friends. I had the crabby chicken pretzel club and fries, while my friend had her usual burger and fries. The food was so good that I was reluctant to eat anywhere else. On our second day, when another friend joined us, we... More

The Atlantic looks as though it has always been the grande dame of this charmingly restored downtown. To our surprise, we learned that Berlin had been essentially taken over about 20 years ago by businessmen who basically gutted and then restored several blocks o historic buildings. The Atlantic is the grandest of these, and the Drummer's Cafe was an excellent... More

On a rainy day at the beach, we decided to take a ride to Berlin, MD. After spending lots of time visiting the various shops in town (which we loved and made lots of purchases at), we went to Drummer's Café for lunch. The setting in the Atlantic Hotel is very quaint and reminiscent of Charleston, South Carolina's old world... More

We ate here because the atmosphere was nice (it was a perfect evening to dine on the screen porch). The service was very prompt and friendly but the food just isn't very good. My meat was overlooked and my husband had a seafood pot that had enough Old Bay in it to choke a horse (and we live in Baltimore!)... More

This restaurant sits within the Atlantic Hotel, but is managed by a restaurant family out of Ocean City rather than operated by the Hotel. The hotel provides an elegant setting near the middle of town, but the food is much better than a typical hotel restaurant. The lunch menu included salads, apps, soups and sandwiches. They also offer several specialty... More

Stopped in for dinner when searching for a restaurant in Berlin. Most other places were closed on Sunday. Restaurant is in a 120 yr old hotel which adds a nice ambience. Egg plant tower was OK, crab cake good not great, steaks were very good. Service was polite and generally OK. Soups were very good. Prices were a little high... More
