Total waste of money! Be prepared to be served on plastic dishware with paper cups for the drinks. The window sills have about an inch of dirt and grime on them...probably need a power washer to come thru at this point. And the gnats! Don't...get me started. The crab dip and the the crab cakes are good, but tiny in comparison to other restaurants. For $40 a plate this place just doesn't cut it. And they want $2 extra to get a side salad in place of one of the side dishes. Not bad...until they brought the side salad to the table. The cucumbers should have been thrown away (soggy and on their way to rotting) on top of arugula that was wilted and the one piece of tomato that was on it's way to the garbage pail as well. The "jumbo" shrimp was barely as big as regular shrimp, definitely not enough to butterfly. Apparently even the locals don't enjoy this place. No problem getting a table at dinnertime...hmmm...that should have been my first clue. Save your money!! I wish I would have!More

The crabs are so amazing here that we ate here 6 times in four days. We had many, many jumbos, and they all were heavy, fresh, cooked perfectly, moist, and delicious. The Maryland vegetable crab soup is loaded with crab and veggies. So good. Drinks...are ice cold and refilled often. Frozen drinks are so fruity and luscious. Also enjoyed clams, flounder, soft crabs, and fish tacos. Garden salads were crisp, cold, and fresh. All the staff are pleasant, helpful, and kind. And the bathrooms are immaculate. On top of it all, the views are amazing. Thanks to everyone at the Crab Deck.More

This restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating on the water with lovely views especially at sunset when we were there. The food was fabulous: I had flounder stuffed with crab imperial and my husband had the broiled seafood platter, both were delicious. Our waitress, Rachel,...was great, as well… even made a special effort to take a really good picture of us with the sunset outside on the pier.More

On a golf trip 4/27 we ate at the Fisherman's Crab Deck. The crabs were good. Others had the fried shrimp and even a hamburger. Food was good and the service was very pleasant. Nice time right on the water.

We have stopped here before, but we hadn’t stopped in a while. We like the location with the open air seating alongside the water. Our server was excellent and checked in with us on a regular basis. We started by ordering the fried calamari that...was delicious with the draft Blue Moon beer. The crabcake on mixed green salad was just right with the honey mustard dressing. Unfortunately the flounder platter was bland and tasted more poached and simply seasoned with paprika rather than broiled with white wine butter. Despite the flounder, we’re definitely coming back as a this is a good spot for a meal on the way to the beach!More

Open air restaurant with outdoor seating by the marina. View but not great. The food is decent but a bit overpriced. Service is inconsistent- sometimes really good, others pretty weak. If you stick to the basics on your meal choices, you’ll be ok.More

we went here for lunch when we walked in, we were not greeted by the young ladies talking at the host stand we saw a table open at the window and asked to be seated there. we were told There were no open tables by...the Window. we could see the open table so the host told the server said OK go ahead and give it to them the server wasn’t very pleasant I ordered the cat fish rock fish bites. they were cut so thin like clam strips and had lots of breading and a ginger soy sauce seaweed. the rockfish was ruined and overpriced. it was an insult. I also had the mussels. they were cooked in a red sauce and too tomato based. although my check was $25 for 2 appetizers, i left a $25 tip due to businesses struggling. the waitress didn’t bother to say thank you and none of them had on mask I will not eat there again. I did not feel welcomed. these places need to understand if they don’t want us to eat there, they should just close. it’s because of us that they get to put food on their tables at home, gas in the car, and pay their billsMore

topped here on our way from DC to Ocean City. It's a perfect place to stop for lunch and a good way to break up the boredom of a long drive. We sat on the deck overlooking the water and it was just peaceful and...beautiful. Except for the birds that kept bugging the customers begging for food. Our soft crab and fish sandwiches were great and wasn't overpriced. Now that we moved to OC full-time this is just the perfect place for us to meet out son for a quick bite, so he doesn't have to come all the way to OC. You won't be disappointed.More

I have never had a reservation, however, with 10 people, I probably would give them a heads up. That way they could have a larger table ready and you could all sit together.
