My family normally dine here when in St.Michael's for our annual hard crab feast. Last year it was raining but this time the weather was perfect and the Crab House's outdoor benches on the bay showed beautifully. The crabs were a little smaller than previous years which made digging in even messier! But we had a jolly good time with very friendly, efficient service. The onion rings here are very good. A hidden jem on the menu, and reasonably priced is the lump crab with fruit and yogurt dressing salad (I know it sounds odd but it was exceptional and the crab did not taste out of a tin).

However we were unable to get a table on the deck - so we made do at a table around the back which is right next to the boats. Because our table wasn't in the main stream area, sometimes it did take a Bit longer for our waitress to get back to us. The food was great. The oysters are local. The shrimp was very nice. Lovely evening

Normally we like sitting outside at this restaurant but on our way home from Ocean City this Independence Day weekend our daughter was very hot so we opted to sit inside. Without asking they took us to teh dining room that has windows to teh water and the boats. We were able to watch the boats come and go as we ate out lunch. We all ordered burgers. Our Daughters was plain mine with crab imperials. They were cooked to prefection and the seasonings were great. Service was excellent and it was a perfect way to break up our trip. We'll be back again I am sure. Only problem we had was the sprite tasted a little funny.

We literally stumbled onto the outdoor dining area with our 120lb Mastiff/Lab, and were greeted with a large bucket of ice water for him. The entire staff were so gracious and kind......and the food and wine were awesome. Love the homemade sweet potato fries! Great place with an awesome view. Can't say more about the staff.....they were fantastic. Tru the dog gives thme a four paw and a wagging tail review. Thanks for a great couple of meals. Jeff and Joanne.

The view from the outside bar is spectacular, the bar staff (Lesley, Diane and George) are outstanding, I've visited often and they always remember what I prefer to drink! The locals who stop by are all so friendly.....we feel like one the gang. The food is awesome, Jim always checks to see if we liked everything. Lori our server never rushes us. Eric Rosen, the owner does a fantastic job keeping it all together, special requests are not a problem!!
