The view was the best part. Nice location on the bay, beautiful sunset. Food not good. My daughter's salmon was RAW. Fried calamari just tasted like salt. Crabs were just ok. Overall, the worst meal of our trip. Go somewhere else. I'm sure there are other, better options for seafood in Ocean City.

What a waste. We got a voucher to go here. What a waste. Everything was hugely overpriced and the quality of the food was terrible. We could not find any crab meat in the crab dip that they raved about. When we left it was like we never ate. And we had a bill for $120.00. What a waste of time and money. Big disappointment!

I had lunch here twice with my wife and assorted in-laws and both times the food was very good. The crab cake sandwich was fresh and tasty The hot crab dip was a very generous size. The fish sandwich had a huge piece of very fresh batter-fried flounder. The French fries accompanying the sandwiches were hot and crispy. Service was good, although there were few other parties at the time. The cream of crab soup was tasty and filling, but may not be what some people expect: it was mostly a thin bechamel sauce flavored with Old Bay seasoning, dotted with lumps of crab, not made with a crab-based broth. This is a seafood restaurant and there are few meat or vegetarian dishes.

The only redeming quality about OC Steamers was the great bayside view.

Ate here Tuesday, 7/17/13. After a long wait for a table, it took more than 45 minutes for food to arrive. We didn't have crabs, since they only offered rather small mediums. So, we ordered entrees instead. Cream of crab soup, while a nice size serving, was thick and tastless. Crab cakes werent cooked. Neither were the kid's meals (raw batter in the center of the corn dogs). One meal wasn't as ordered, and another never showed up until we were ready to go.

The manager blamed our waiter for most of our problems, but I'm reasonably sure our waiter didn't cook what was served. After a bit of disagreement with the manager, our meals were comped, and we went elsewhere to eat.

With so many great seafood restaurants in the Ocean City area, I see no reason to return.

Must be 3 dozen OC restaurants which advertise the best crabs in OC but in our opinion, OC Steamers on 47th Street meets the test. We are from MD's eastern shore (the home of MD crabs) so tend to be very critical of what is good and what is not so good. OC Steamers crab cakes, if not the best we ever ate, certainly rank right near the top. The crab cakes are broiled and have very little filler. They are a good size as well, as my wife and I split their crab cake platter, each getting one nice sized one along with sides of fries and cole slaw. the cole slaw appeared to be home made and was tasty. This restaurant also has nice views of the bay from any seat, a nice bonus.
