“Service Was HORRIBLE and food was wrong and took over an hr”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

Service was terrible, new hostess got our orders all wrong, took over an hour to get the good which was completely wrong. Went to talk to manager (who was owner) he could have cared less basically said they were busy and tough (*&() Thus we have never been back neither has the couple we went with and we tell everyone to steer clear!!!

“Where's the fresh seafood?”
Reviewed July 8, 2012 via mobile

We have visited the restaurant twice and neither time has it been anything to write home about. The steak the first time was delicious but the last time we visited it was over cooked and not a steak we expect to get from a steak restaurant. On the first visit I had the shrimp Alfredo and I am almost for certain that the shrimp was frozen not fresh.

“This is not good food”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

Wife and I came here for lunch after a day at the beach... it was bad. First, their salad was fine, nothing particularly good or bad about it. Upside is that the veggies looked fresh, downside is that the croutons were stale. I got the taco salad, which was bland and the tortilla shell was chewy. Wife got the hot crab dip with a loaf of bread, with the promise on the menu of large lumps of crab in the dip. She didn't find one piece of crab. Also, the bread was stale.

The manager and bartenders were in the middle of the dining room loudly finishing out. The service was inattentive despite being clearly overstaffed.

Unless the dinner service is radically different, I can't imagine why people would come here. Our bad.

“More towards the Ale side of things”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

It isn't the greatest food but they sure like to charge you for it! Don't be surprised to see a few buzzed or drunk locals parade loudly thru the dinning area from the indoor bar to the outdoor patio.

“Dissapointing”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

We came to visit family in Maryland and they took us to dinner at this restaurant. They have never been there before, so it was first time for all of us. Starting with the worst, most incompetent service ever, wine served in plastic cups and less than average food, we were not pleased. Waitress was not able to answer the simpliest questions. One person ordered a steak and after a while she realized that she was not asked how she would like her stake. She called the waitress and she told her that she just put it in as medium. Really?! Food was just not good. Pasta was way overcooked, chicken tasted defrosted and microvawe heated, crab cake was extremely salty. The only good things were the cream of crab soup and crab dip (we are obviously crab lovers). Obviously next time we are in MD, we won't be going there.
