“Fun outdoor deck with Great Food,”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

I went with friends to Nick's Fish House and we sat outside on the Crab Deck. It was a fun experience. The service was good and the food portions were large. I recommend the Shrimp Salad Sandwich. One of my friends got the fish and Chips and said it was tasty. The others got a Steak Sandwich and it was huge. The atmosphere is appropriate for a fish house and they have Crabs when in season!

We traveled to Nick's by boat from the northern part of the Chesapeake Bay. This restaurant is tucked away behind several ship yards and not too hard to find by water if you can read a chart and follow the channel markers. The floating dock can accommodate 6 or 8 boats.

I will definitely go back again.

“Great seafood place with local Baltimore atmosphere”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

Great local seafood place. It is a little hard to find but worth looking for. The pricing is good compared to Inner Harbor places and the quality of the food and service is better. It is a bit noisy, especially the outside bar area.

“Off the beaten path”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

Looked for something on the water but not in the built up Inner Harbor. Found it here, good food, good drinks, great service. Seating outside is a bit tight but that is a real minor issue. Liked the fact I saw selections on menu I didn't see at the Inner Harbor. Will definitely go back.

“Best Crabs!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

My husband and I come here everytime we go to Baltimore on his business trip. We eat crabs like there's no tomorrow. I can't believe we could really eat like that. We always order by dozens. It was a mess but it's worth it! At one time we also took his friend's and spouse to enjoy the crab but the ones who enjoyed the most were the two of us. Service is not bad at all. But we're here for the crab, we could care less about everything else. As long as the service is not terrible, it's fine. Check it out if you're crab-lover! Enjoy!
