Training at Hassler Dressage all week and this was my favorite meal! Tasty salad with the best crab cake in town. Mojhitos are best as well!

A group of ten was easily accommodated on a busy summer Saturday -- we opted to eat under a balcony due to the sun's intensity, but still had wonderful views. For a large group, you always run the risk of mix-ups but the serve staff did a great job and all our little idiosyncracies were handled graciously.
Food was very well prepared, we took our time, separate checks were no problem and we were very surprised when our bill came and it didn't break the bank!

Great location on the river. Great seafood. Good portions. Great service from Mac(?). He was excellent at reading type of diners and how to treat/talk to them. Great drinks. Good selection for non seafood eaters.

Where do I start ..well with Management ...I can't say enough about the manager Bret outside on the deck. He is the absolute best ! And the team he has working for him are fabulous. We have excellent service and food on every visit. How do they do it!!! No matter how busy and even in this crazy heat this summer they never miss a beat. The waitress do a fantastic job with an extra special shout out to Hanna and Alexa. I'm hooked on certain things on the menu and trying to branch out but you can't go wrong with the Seafood nachos, crab melt, Caesar salad..omg that fabulous chicken salad.. . I could go on and on but take my word for it and try this place. We go year round but obviously really enjoy the deck in the summer.

Due to a recommendation from a friend, we stopped here for lunch en-route to our B & B near Chestertown. What a delightful experience! We chose to sit on the outside covered deck right next to the C & D Canal. Fabulous view of watercraft on the canal and bridge. The setting was casual and the food was excellent! Without a doubt the crab cake was the best we had on our vacation. Highly recommend this restaurant!
