Should have checked Trip Advisor BEFORE we went like I usually do. Figured it was good from all the foot traffic. Don't be fooled. Firstly, you are not really sure where the entrance is and its confusing. To eat inside.....go up the stairs. Service was good once the host showed up. Got the cream of crab. It was OK. Got the crab cake, fried. I have had way better. Hubby got oyster stew and all you could taste were onions, 'cause that was all that was in it. The entire meal was just blah and expensive. HATE their chairs - HATE them! Its not that good and we will not be back.

Beautiful view of the Chesapeake, friendly atmosphere, pleasant staff and marvelous food.
Perfect place to have lunch on a warm fall afternoon. Less crowds than summer. No waiting to be seated.
View the lovely boats and yachts at the dock too

What a bad dining experience . Went to have some oysters and take home a wedge salad. All I could hear in the back ground was hot grease ,hot grease!!!! The employees were just unhappy it totally was not a relaxing experience . Then when I returned home my wedge salad did not have any bacon and the tomatoes and onions were not even cut up. Not pleased

The service was great but the food is very average. This is the proverbial tourist trap. It is right next to the wonderful museum, but the food is very ordinary. The prices are high and everything is a product of mass production. Its been there forever and has not gotten any better. Pick somplace else to eat!!

We arrived for dinner and the service was great. The food exceeded our expectations and the tables alongside the upper level windows provided great views of the Miles River. If you are in the area, this is a must visit restaurant.
