“Great Food by the sea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012 via mobile

We dined here on a Sunday night and had all of our expectations met. My wife and I had the crab cakes and my son the fish and chips which turned out to be a large piece of fish. Dining is outside in a screened in area and there is a dock that you can venture out to see wildlife

“Always good food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

I eat here often and have never been disappointed. Food is excellent and waitstaff is awesome. Even when extremely busy I've seen nothing short of excellent service. You can tell this place is managed well and keeps only the most competent staff.
Food is always fresh and hot and cooked the way you want it. Whether is fine dinner or sandwiches this is a place you don't want to miss.

“Nothing Special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012

We ate here after a Sailing excursion and I was inclined to get a burger but instead got the shrimp appetizer and the Crab Toast. The shrimp was good but my first Crab Toast came and it was burnt. I sent it back and got a better one but it was WAY overpriced!! Just mediocre food but view was gorgeous!

“Great food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2012

We called ahead for a party of fifteen, they were ready when we arrived, and very tolerable of our small children. The service and food was excellent, and the only disappointment was the burger and crabcake buns, which seemed to thick and dry. Everything else was very good. Try the cheesesteak with provolone with seasonings and crabcakes - excellent!

“Good saloon hangout”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2012

I like to go to the Deadend and sit at the bar to eat and have a drink. The food is really pretty good and you can get anything jfrom burgers and fries to fresh fish dishes. Crab Soup is fabulous. Lots of locals hang out here.
