“Good Food and Drinks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2012

Neighborhood 'bar' atmosphere. No frills, nothing fancy but very good at what they do. I had a grilled cheese which was perfect. My husband had a delicious Cream of Lobster soup. Great service.

“Best crabhouse in Chesapeake City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2012

If you're looking to pick crabs in Chesapeake City, this is the place. In fact, if you're looking to pick crabs within 10 miles of Chesapeake City, this is still the place. Very casual, no reservations, cash only!!

“Crabs as they should be”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2012

This is a townie place to pick crabs and my family loves it. Crabs, hushpuppies, and beer in a brown paper tablecloths atmosphere. Lots of fun.

“local gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2011

okay- take one step inside and you will KNOW that this place has not updated it's decor since the eisenhower years- this is a GOOD thing, because any restaurant that can stay in business despite being stuck in the 50's is a place i want to eat! obviously the locals know something we tourists do not, and that is that the tap room has GOOOOOOOOD food! Okay, I'm only speaking for the steamed crabs- but OMG they are done to perfection! If you are local to the area, or just wanting to fit in, get them the way they usually do them- steamed with a TON of old bay and rock salt- if you want to be a wus (like me) and let the staff mock you behind your back, you can also ask for them to be rinsed or steamed naked- (i promise they will only laugh at you a little bit...) ENJOY!!!!!
