This time of year only open for deliveries. Go Columbus Day weekend & they have samples from their restaurant for minimal prices. Fabulous chowders & well everything.

It's a little hole in the wall type of place that gives you the flavor the locals eat all year. Fresh seafood and in season veggies are tops. Key lime pie is a must have for dessert or to take back to the room.

We had just arrived in Ocean City & were meeting friends for dinner. They suggested Spadafora's, & we're so glad they did! My husband had the best salmon ever, & I had the best flounder ever!!

We were so glad we found this place! Many of the restaurants in this area are either fast food or pizza and takeout. This restaurant has a good variety of seafood including fish, clams, linguini and even soup! We really enjoyed the lobster bisque soup!

It was a beautiful night to eat outside and Spadaforas offers limited seating outside. They have an early bird special from 3-5 and the choices were numerous. I had the deviled crab cake and it was delicious. This a great place for good seafood. Go early during the season and you won't be disappointed.

This restaurant is great for families. Very casual. Food is delicious. We have been coming to Spadafora's for 5 years and never had a bad meal. I love the lobster bisque and broiled seafood combo. My husband likes the tuna. My only recommendation is to get there early. It's a very small place so if you go there later (which... More

So you are dining a block from the ocean would you expect fresh seafood, well not here. This is all dump it out of the box, then overlook it and then overcharge your customers for what you serve. Even their coleslaw was made in a factory. The waitress was so anxious to turn the table our dinner came to the... More

We stopped in and were pleasantly surprised to get in for the Early Bird which was AMAZING. The fish was fresh and the sides excellent. And dessert was good too. Going again soon

Even though it was past the prime season, it was really jumping this week at Spadafora's. We ordered 3 different personal pizzas and we each thought they were great

Make reservations. Great seafood. Try their crab cakes and lobster bisque. Sit out side under the shade rather then elbow to elbow inside.
