We felt rushed because our server seemed eager for us to order immediately…I mean immediately as she handed us our menus and we were ordering our drinks!. We prefer a leisurely dinner, so we ordered drinks and an appetizer and informed our server that we would wait to order our entrees. Politely sent back a glass of house cab and opted for a bottle of Ferrari Carano Cabernet…very nice. I had the 8oz filet. It was just ok, slightly overcooked. My boyfriend had a sirloin and crab cake that had to be priced separately as they had no Surf ‘n Turf on the menu. They had a Motown Tribute band playing in the ballroom, no cover and large crowd of 40 – 60 age group.

We rented a house in Deale, Maryland and went to Smoky Joe's next door to this place for dinner and ended up walking out because the service was so slow. Some locals recommended this place and we were much happier here. Food was really good. There were twelve of us. We needed three tables and did not have a reservation. They were very accommodating and were able to seat us right away and even found us three tables together. The server at two of the tables was awesome. But, the other one was barely adequate. She forgot drinks, forgot who ordered what and didn't come back to check on us. Fortunately, the other server believes in teamwork. So, we pestered her a lot and tipped her well. Overall, I would recommend it and would go back. The resort/spa that the restaurant is attached to looks like a nice place to hang out for a weekend especially if the weather is nice.

We lived in the D.C. area for many years and frequented the Rod and Reel Restaurant. We heard it had been upgraded from a 'beachy' restaurant, so we decided to take a nostalgic road trip to Chesapeake Beach, Maryland. It has been upgraded and now is a part of the Chespeake Beach Resort and Spa; however, we were delighted that the restaurant itself had not changed that much and still offers a casual atmosphere - outdoor seating, when weather permits - waitstaff is friendly - specials are offered ($16.99 Maine Lobster entree, with sides) - food is delectable and portions are generous. We couldn't resist taking home a 4-inch high cheesecake which just melted in your mouth!
