Very mixed results on the food. The lightly breaded fried oyster appetizer, goat cheese salad and the lobster and shrimp pasta with alfredo sauce were delicious. Unfortunately the fried cod, scallops, shrimp and crab balls (supposedly their signature dish) were heavily breaded, blasznd, and in the case of the scallops and cod, still raw in the middle. Perhaps the regular... More

Stoney's has some of the best crab cakes I have had in the area including Baltimore. One of my favorite dishes is the baby steamer, you get lobster, shrimp, crab, oysters, mussels, and corn. Lots of food and a good beer selection as well.

Family dinner. Great crab cakes the size of a small tennis ball and good fried shrimp. Nice portions. Decent prices. Good pour on the cocktails. Service was a bit "casual"--could have used a bit of training--brought salad out with the entrees and forgot the soup. Still, this is a fine example of Chesapeake cuisine if you like things fried. (I... More

I absolutely love the soup here. They also have great oyster deals in the winter. The back side of the bar is great in between dinning and they have a good variety of local and unique beers.

Neat little restaurant with seating outside on the dock. Food is good, but definitely visit during blue crab season because that is easily the highlight of the menu. Soft shell or hard shell, you can't go wrong.

Stopped in here for lunch on a Friday. Lauren was our server and she was WONDERFUL. Friendly, helpful and a true delight to meet. The food is good. We had the steamer platter for two. The crab and lobster were wonderful. The mussels and clams, perfect. The shrimps was a bit overcooked. We did not eat the king crab legs,... More

This is a very popular restaurant, and after we could not make reservations on line, we walked in and were able to eat at the bar. It was fine; service was quick, the food was good.

Great atmosphere with good food. Service was not so good. We waited a very long time for our food but when it came it was very good. I love crab cakes so was very happy. Crab soup was excellent.

We went on a hot steamy night and found a warm and barely cool dining room with a 45 minute wait. We sat a the bar and was told that the high top tables are first come so when one opened we sat there which was good. The tuna bite appetizer was the best! I wish I had ordered that... More

This is a great place for families and large groups as they have large tables. And there is a cozy bar area overlooking the water with high top tables and a bar. The food is great with a fun atmosphere. Last night I had the snow crab legs that were great and my husband had a burger we have been... More
