I was expecting good seafood because this is a Maryland restaurant. What I wasn't expecting was the exceptional service and scrumptious food. I had the fried trio which they broiled for me. I was so stuffed I couldn't finish all of it. This is by...More

Waiter staff is always friendly.. I go here for others celebrating birthdays, showers etc. Maybe its because I am allergic to shellfish, and always have to get the fish or a salad, is why I am NEVER satisfied with my meal.

If you are for quantity over quality this is the place. Mediocre food, bad service and a whole lot to take home. I won't be visiting them again thank you.

Just opened about a month ago. HUGE menu...seafood but so much more. It has a large bar area, plus a separate dining room. The atmosphere is nice, service kinks are being worked out, and the food is fantastic. The crab cakes give most a run for their money in this area of crab cake experts.
