We had family visiting and went to Buzz's Roost for dinner. We have eaten there many times before and expected decent food and some cold beer. What we got was warm beer and cold food and extremely poor service. Nothing worse than servers that have a could care less attitude. Really bad. Had a similar experience with a lunch visit in July (same server) but thought maybe it was just a bad day for her. Think this place may be under new management. Liked the old management. Obviously there is a management problem here. No telling what is going behind the scene, or isn't, since this really isn't the cleanest place in town. Won't be back.

My friend and I had dinner last night at this restaurant and bar in the center of downtown historic Georgetown. The staff at our hotel had recommended it.

The front door is right next to the bar, so we were hit with loud music and a cloud of smoke and almost left. I'm very glad we didn't!

There are two places for non-smokers to go, an indoor room that is non-smoking and separated from the smoking area by two sets of doors so that there really is no smoke odor in the room. The other is an upstairs porch that overlooks the river and marina area. We chose that option.

For dinner I had she-crab soup, my friend had clam chowder and we shared the crab balls (the restaurant's signature dish). Both soups were excellent, but the crab balls were absolutely outstanding. They melted in the mouth and came with a tangy dipping sauce that was a perfect compliment to the sweet crab.

We both agreed that we will definitely go back here because we must have those crab balls again!

We stayed a night in Georgetown and went walking downtown trying to find a place to eat. Came upon this place and liked the outdoor seating and bar area overlooking the channel. Ordered the crab balls which were very good and highly recommended. Just a good location in a quaint town. Worth a stop.

Came here for lunch today. Friendly welcoming from the wait staff upon entering the empty place at 12:30. Sat on the upper deck. Had the okra and fried pickle app for $7 and got 9 pcs. He had a bar food typical Philly sandwhich and I the chicken tortellini. Keep walking past this place for lunch.
