Down home local waterman family run restaurant. Really good Rockfish and fried oysters. Only local seafood at this joint. Family run and family owned and a true Americana restaurant. Quite possible the best vegetable carb soup on the planet. Definitely worth the drive no matter where you are coming from. This is how it used to be and should still... More

Down a lonely country road, where Smith Creek meets the Potomac....a real local dining experience. Worth the trip. Loved it!

We ate a great dinner at Courtney's. It is definitely NOT pretentious, but it doesn't present itself that way. Fresh seafood in something a bit better than a shack on the water. It's nothing fancy but if the food were any fresher, you'd still smell the Bay on it!

We were a group of seven on a Saturday night. Arrived as another large party was finishing, and were told it would be a 10-15 minute wait. We stepped outside to enjoy the breeze and the view from the dock. When we returned, our table was empty but not cleared. It took the staff another 15 minutes to clear the... More

This place is absolutely perfect if you are looking for genuine freshly caught fish and oysters in a simple setting and good pricing. The crab cakes are excellent and the rockfish was great, too. It is a family-run "dive" sort of a place at the end of the road to Wynne, MD. Captain Tommy catches the fish, mom cooks and... More

All reviews were pretty dead on...very very good food....but not a fancy place! Perfect!!!! Service was good but do not plan to have... More

My wife and I had a wonderful lunch at Courtney's. She's a Maryland native and said the Maryland crab soup was perfect, I had the best oyster stew i've ever had with plentiful fresh plump oysters taken right from the bay. My wife had the softshell crab slider which was great and I had A crabcake sandwich which was also... More

What a great restaurant right on the water. Now mind you, you drive up to it and it looks like a dump. But the food is great. The owner goes out in the wee hours of the morning and catches the fish of the day. He seems like a grumpy man when he comes to your table to take your... More

We thought the food here was great but don't go there if you're in a hurry. This is a mom and pop restaurant where the wife does the cooking, the husband catches the seafood, and the daughter waits on tables. I'm not a big hushpuppies fan but their hushpuppies were the best I've ever had! The coleslaw was fresh and... More

Get the fresh catch. It's caught that morning and beautifully prepared. Fried zucchini was amazing too. This is one of those local places that's a hole in the wall but amazing!
