When we walked in, we were surprised by the ambience. Great location, right on the water, fishing boats all around you, when we got the food, it surpassed our expectations. all were local grown or caught, freshly made in home and delicious. Great Value also.

This restaurant received such strong reviews that I expected something a bit more refined or interesting. There was nothing wrong with it, but it wasn't very special. That said, it seems that Ocean City is valued more for its lovely beach than for the quality...More

A restaurant that deserves outstanding reviews. Servers are well trained, personable, but professional. All details of dinner are throughly explained; outstanding unique dishes, as well as Maryland favorites. Manager constantly roving to check on customers, tables and every aspect of the restaurant.....

Food is absolutely delicious and fresh. So glad they take reservations. One of our favorites. Only drawback for us is that with the bar in the center of the restaurant it gets too loud for us. Other than that, a great place.

We had eaten at this restaurant about a year ago and it was excellent. This time, however, the food was very disappointing. We do not plan to return there.

There is no question why this place stays not only in business, but crowded on an out-of-season Sunday evening. Superior service coupled with an amazing menu; never the same twice. Visit their website and see the daily changing offerings and make the effort to get...More

Stopped in for happy hour. Couple of beers, several selections from the happy hour menu and a beautiful sunset was all we needed to secure nirvana! The chef is magnificent! Creative, artistic and most importantly delicious freshly made food. Great for the adventurous or traditionalists....More

We write our menu twice daily based on what's fresh and available. The majority of our ingredients are sourced locally so we never know what we're going to have on hand. The beauty of that is we always have a seasonally... More

real food * from scratch
We believe that great food and healthful ingredients are not mutually exclusive of each other. We buy organic produce from local farmers and seafood from the commercial fishing harbor right outside our restaurant. We feature all natural products - steering clear of preservatives and antibiotics. Whole grains and whole foods are used in the preparation of our menu - which our chefs write twice daily, based on what's fresh, available and delicious. Fresh. Local. Organic. Taste the difference.
