Was super excited to eat here with close friends. Showed up to none of the menu that is posted here on trip advisor. So unfortunately it was a BIG disappointment. Food was pretty good, fair "ish" prices. But we did wait for the dinner menu...to come out and the food, none the less, WAS FANTASTIC! We all loved our dishesMore

This is basically a noisy beach restaurant with a bar in your face. Food is good but expensive. Service is indifferent. Our waiter spent considerable time chatting with the table across from us while we waited for our check.

My son’s girlfriend recommended this place, and it was a hit. It’s located in West Ocean City and not on the island. We went on a Saturday evening and parking was a problem, so be prepared to walk a long way to the restaurant on...the street (no sidewalks or grassy shoulders). We had a wide variety of dishes and everything came out perfectly. We ate the Beef & Berry Salad with Shrimp; Mussels & Sausage; Fisherman’s Stew; and the fried Oysters. Everything came out with great flavors and very tasty. We ate outdoors in a sandy area looks to be underneath the main restaurant dining area. This is a perfect place for a special occasion or date night. Make sure to get a reservation.More

This little atmospheric restaurant is a gem! Delicious local food- great seafood and although the dinner menu was a lot more expensive than the lunch menu, we thought both were good value. Service was excellent, views beautiful over the harbor - kids meals also good....Highly recommended- make sure you reserve ahead of time!More

I had the rockfish, pistachio encrusted. It was as thick as a steak! Beautifully cooked, one of the best fish dinners I have had anywhere. Crab cakes were also superb. Service was excellent. Highly recommend.

The quality of this food exceeds the cheap greasy stuff that you normally find on the boardwalk. Every bite was absolutely totally gnarly dude. We had our anniversary dinner there and they were very accommodating and kind. Definitely will plan to be back soon.

We ate twice here, lunch first and then dinner the next day, during a three-night stay in Ocean City. At lunch we ordered fisherman's stew, fried oyster wrap, and fried rockfish wrap. Both wraps were good, especially rockfish wrap, but the stew was just ok....At dinner, I ordered crab cakes, and wife ordered pistachio encrusted swordfish. We shared plates, and we both liked and enjoyed them.More
