We saw sign for steamed shrimps and Crabs and stopped in for lunch! We ordered 1 lb of steamed shrimps ( all sizes to be had ) and we had the medium gulf shrimp which were so reasonable for $10.99/ lb and our sweet server asked us if we wanted them lightly, med or heavy spiced. We had them medium spiced with pungent old bay seasoning and then we ordered 2 large fried flounder sandwiches at $7.99 each. It is a no frills establishment but it has all you could want! They couldn't do enuf for you! We tucked into the steamed shrimp and were so happy to be tasting such moist, succulent shrimp perfectly spiced and good cocktail sauce. Then she brought us our delectable HUGE flounder sandwiches served with chips, pickle and cocktail sauce/tartar sauce. It was soooooo good ! We were very happy campers! Go and try it, order at inside counter, then they deliver to your screened in open air/fans eating area! YUM!

To get to Crisfield you have to pass Lintons. If it is lunch time get the flounder sandwich it is large. They have a large selection of seafood. Call ahead and place your carry out. Or stay and eat there. But they do not have late hours .

We were cruising our boat southward through the Chesapeake Bay working our way to FL. Stopped a number of places along the way but couldn't find a crab house serving traditional style steamed crabs until we arrived in Crisfield, MD ("the blue crab capitol of the Chesapeake"). Unfortunately, almost all of the crab houses were closed for the season - BUT, we were told to try Linton's, which was a little ways out of town. Hired a taxi to drive us out ($35) - and ordered our crabs, onion rings, & coleslaw in the seafood shop. Unfortunately, wine wasn't available (we could've brought it in had we known - our fault for not asking), but beer was ice cold. Another mistake, we thought the minimum order was a dozen (not so) but we hadn't had such a treat in quite a while, so we figured we could deal with it. You walk next door to an adjacent screened in porch with picnic tables and one of the sons who run the business brings in your order. They were amazing - deliciously seasoned, huge, hot, and so tasty. Onion rings good, don't bother with coleslaw. It's a total casual experience and would be really fun with a group. Best crabs we've ever had!!! P.S. Another $35 taxi ride back to marina.

Linton's is a family-owned seafood market, that added on a screened crab deck and an air conditioned crab house to offer their customers wider dining experience. Place your order at the seafood market counter and let them know if you'd like to sit on the crab deck or in the crab house. Food is prepared and brought to your table piping hot. On our last visit, they easily accommodated our party of seven.

Though we were ready to spend the money for the Jumbo sized hard shells, they had run out by the time we placed our order. We were assured that the lower priced mediums, though smaller, would not disappoint and we were not lead astray. It was a nice evening and we decided to take advantage of the crab deck. Save room for the homemade Smith Island Cake slices in the dessert case. There were no less than 6 flavors of the decadent Maryland State dessert available. The youngest in our party got crab shaped lollipops made of chocolate.

All in all, it was nice, relaxing evening with great food and great company. We'd do it again!

Coming from PA to the Crisfield area twice a month, we always stop at Lintons and get a flounder samchich. The fillet is so big half is on the roll and half is not.
