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

Berlin truly is the "coolest small town in America" as they advertise - so much fun to walk around. The Atlantic Hotel and Drummers Cafe look like they were originally from the early 19th Century, the architecture and decor is pretty awesome making for a great atmosphere. Staff was very friendly, although service was a tad bit slow for my... More

Several other places in Berlin are closed on Mondays. Decided to try Drummers and were very pleased with all four of our lunches. Their gumbo soup was outstanding. The soft shell sandwich was a very large crab. Salads were fresh and nicely presented. Service was very good as well. Highly recommend.

Loved having dinner in this historic hotel dining room. Lucky for us, on Monday nights a straw-hatted veteran pianist-singer performs! It was great fun.

Charmingly located in downtown Berlin. Service was average. Food was very good. Cod was outstanding. Soft shell crabs were phenomenal. Live music was provided by a very talented pianist, playing current hits. Unfortunately, she was way too loud. We came for dinner, not for a concert. I asked our server to turn her down. He said he was working on... More

Always a treat. Great fish tacos and they have a special grilled cheese every day that is like no other. Beautiful historic building and fine dining. A must see when in town.

If you want great food for a great price, you'll certainly get the food, but the price is a little more than bargained for. Came through for sandwiches with my friends, ended up paying an arm and a leg. 5 people, we ordered 5 sodas, 4 burgers (one was a "kids" burger) and one grilled cheese, all with sides. we... More
