Even with a large menu, it seems more like a sandwich and appetizer place. A hangout for the locals. But don't let that fool you. The food here is excellent. I had the seafood medley which was a broiled platter consisting of flounder, crab cake, deviled crab, a clam casino, broiled shrimp, and two sides. The flounder was some of the best I've ever had in my life. Flaky, buttery, melt in your mouth. My friend had the seafood salad wrap which he also loved. You can get frozen mugs of Yuengling for $2.50 and sit by the bayside listening to live music and eating some great grub. It does not get much better.

I'm very disappointed in this restaurant. The service was slow. I ordered a cheeseburger. The first one came out burnt. They returned it and got me a new one that was also burnt. I just ate some of it but didn't enjoy it. I won't be going back.

We always spend at least one evening at BJ's. This restaurant/bar has one of the best settings in Ocean City. Right on the bay with a view of sunset. There are quite a few choices on the menu. We both had the Breaded Colossal Gulf Shrimp that were flash fried. There were six good sized shrimp that were very tender. They were quite yummy and the cocktail sauce that came with the shrimp was one of the best we've ever tasted. The only negative is the restaurant is very noisy. The acoustics are awful! When it is busy you can barely hold a conversation with your table mates. And if they have a live band - forget it!

You owe it to yourself to go where the locals go in Ocean City. Billy and Maddy run a great establishment where food, drink and friends go together. Be sure to catch the duck feeding at 1 every afternoon.

BJ's has a very warm and welcoming feel the second you arrive! It's like they're so glad to see you and make your dining experience a GREAT one! You'll just love the warmth you feel in this place. It's very special! The food is fun and reasonably priced and GOOD! Be sure to try their peanut butter pie...SO yummy!!!! They throw food to the birds several times a day, so there's always a nice selection of water birds to see from your bayfront table whether you dine inside or out on their very nice waterfront deck, covered and uncovered! There is something here for everyone!! I would highly recommend this treasure of a find on the bay in OC,MD!! You'll leave so much happier then when you arrived!!
