Had great seafood with decent prices. The side items are not good so be prepared to be disappointed.

If you're looking for a taste of Maryland seafood and some of the best crab around, this is the place! Forget the high-priced Inner Harbor joints. This is down-home eating at its best. The nightly dinner specials are awesome and lunch is the bomb.

This place can't be beat! The steamed crabs were excellent! Cooked just right so the sweet, juicy meat just slides right out. You crab lovers out there know what I'm talking about--right?!?! And, the service was exceptional! Today, our waitress was Mary, and she had...More

If you're starving before you go, eat a small snack. The wait could easily be 45-60 min. To be fair, we visited a couple of days after the opening of Chesapeake Bay blue crab season, however this funky restaurant stays busy all year. What to...More

I have eaten at this place many times and the crabs by far are the best in Maryland. Crab Cakes score very high in my opinion. Great place to stop and meet friends for drinks or dinner. The waiter and waitress are the best.

When in Maryland, you must eat crab, you must eat seafood. If you want a great taste of local cuisine, try Seaside. It's nothing fancy, but when you always see a full parking lot, it's usually a good sign. My crab cake dinner was among...More

Everything I've eaten here has been great. The Maryland Crab Soup is very good, but my personal favorite is the Crab Cake sandwich. I still haven't tried their crabs but I hope I get the opportunity to do that soon. This is a great place...More

Do you have "call ahead" seating for a large group (15-20 people) on a Sunday (1:30'ish)? It's for a 70th Wedding Anniversary Party. Do you have a group menu and pricing? Can we get a table so we can all sit together?

Response from Ann D | Reviewed this property |
Not sure, but I do believe they do have call ahead. We had a group of 11 and were seated immediately however I did not make the plans for eating here so I can not say positively that they do have call ahead seating.
