Six adults ordered a variety of items that for the most part were disappointing. The broiled sea scallops were plump and tender but undercooked, the fried oysters were overcooked, the crab imperial was dry and the hush puppies were hard, tasteless and overcooked. The crabs were very good as well as the crab cakes, and the fresh green beans were good. Cathy our server was friendly and the service good. As other reviewers have noted the meals were overpriced.

Went on a Sunday afternoon, watched some football and ate some large, heavy crabs steamed to perfection. Fantastic way to spend the afternoon!

Crab Alley is one of the places where ther locals in Ocean City eat. The seafood is cooked to PERFECTION (especially the scallops, which are cooked through but NOT to the point they become tough). Service is quick, attentive, and friendly. An authentic Eastern Shore dining experience. The only drawback is the price - expect the bill to be around $40 per person in your party - but you won't be hungry when you leave!

During our two week stay in O.C. we went out for steamed crabs on 2 occasions. The crabs at Waterman's were very good. But the crabs at Crab Alley were superior. Sweet, heavy, spiced just right. Our waiter, Chad, was personable, humorous, and attentive. We definitely will make Crab Alley our first choice for steamed crabs in the future. In previous years we have enjoyed other seafood meals here and have have always been delighted.

3 years ago we went here and had all you can eat crab legs with ribs and corn for 29$. Went back last week and for 39$ you could have all you could eat "blue crab"-they advertized all you could eat crab-this is misleading as anyone who was brought up around the ocean blue crab are the small hard shelled round crabs that are horrible! We had 3 King crab legs with 1 ear of corn and hush puppies-soup was an extra 8$ and no salad or bread for 35$. total waste of time and money-never again-Red Lobster has much better fare for the same price
