....in the heart of farm country you can get a great seafood meal. Took a shot at this place based upon other reviews. Glad I did. On a lazy, midweek, quiet evening in this town, this place was busy. Very nice interior, with comfy tables and elegant placesettings. Although generally dark in the restaurant, there was good downlighting that made reading the menu easy. Acoustics were excellent for a large dining area, having no problem conversing at our table. Initially, I was somewhat skeptical when the biscuit that was served shortly after ordering crumbled like a cookie. But my dinner entrée of the lump crabcakes was really good. Two nice mounds of mostly crabmeat were nicely seasoned and served with separate cups of tartar sauce and spicy remoulade. They were served with ample portions of mashed Yukon gold potatoes and a substituted French green bean (Haricot Vert). All of this worked really well together. As a Marylander and critic of crabcakes, I can say that these passed my high standards. The crabmeat appeared to be mostly lump backfin, and the taste was excellent and complimented nicely with the sauces. At $29.50, not inexpensive, but if you have priced jumbo lump crabmeat lately, this is not outrageous in my opinion. I followed this with the Key Lime Pie dessert ($7.50), a rather large mini-pie served with a chopped, roasted pineapple and maraschino cherry relish and a scoop of mango sorbet on a butter cookie wafer. Really outstanding. Service was friendly and helpful, but not overly attentive. The menu selections were extensive, but remember that this is a seafood restaurant. Just make sure that all in your party are seafood eaters, as the choices of non-seafood are limited to steak, a couple of chicken dishes and a few salads. I will not hesitate to repeat here when I am in the area again.
