The hard shell crabs where very good, heavy and cooked just right, we also had shrimp and they where large. Ordered Fries, and Onion rings which came out good and hot.. There where 6 of us and we enjoyed the food, but the noise level was just extremely high, They had a party of 20 people who screamed, whistled, and made enough noise, which made our dinner less enjoyable. When we are in the mood for crabs and shrimp we will consider going back there. Food good noise bad/

Not fancy. This is an old school crab and beer joint. The crabs were good but I felt a bit overpriced $56 per a dozen of #1s, 75 for a doz of Large. I split the order with another person. I enjoyed my first crab experience of the season but could not justify ordering another dozen. The city itself is very quaint and it is worth a walk around topped off by crabs and beer.

The Tap Room can be 3/4 star depending upon what you are looking for. If your aim is fine dining, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a traditional Chesapeake Bay meal, steamed blue shells, or Old Bay favorites you will not be disappointed. Their weekend specials are outstanding. The drink selection is a little limited for those looking for micro beers or higher end alcohol.

The tap room is away from the water and is what the name would imply, a nice little place for drinks and something to eat. Have been there three times for lunch, and each occasion it was during the week so it was not a problem to get a seat. The service was responsive, the food was good, and the drinks were cold, It is nothing fancy but it is certainly clean and well worth the visit if you are looking for a place to escape the larger venues elsewhere.
