Food was excellent. Pricy just a bit, but the quality of the food was worth it. Dover Scallops were excellent. Salad bar was also excellent. Kids had Crab cake, coconut shrimp and breaded shrimp. Would definitely return.

If there was any alcohol it would have been white wine. I don't think any of the seafood menu items included pork/chicken/meat broth.

I am formerly from Maryland.Growing up the family would get together and go downtown to the Polish section of Highlandtown. We went to Obricky's ( I spelled it incorrectly) .In those days I would get a crab cake and order one Fried hard shell crab. The other family members would eat their crab cakes and a bushel of crabs. I would eat my Fried Crab. This crab was dipped in some sort of seasoned coating all over the crab. It was a long time ago. Do you have Fried hard shell crabs.Thank You.
