In this day and age good customer service is not always easy to find, I'm was throughly impressed with the service we received! The staff was very attentive and we had a larger party. The appetizers and desserts were delicious. Good value for the money!

My co-workers and I go here like every 3 months after work on Wednesdays for the Steak Night and Happy Hour specials. We always leave with those shopping bags full of leftovers because pretty much no one can finish their meals or appetizers. The wings...More

This restaurant had been a favorite, but it appears that the wait staff cannot keep up with the volume of people. In addition, the quality of food leaves much to be desired. No more future visits for us.

I was expecting good seafood because this is a Maryland restaurant. What I wasn't expecting was the exceptional service and scrumptious food. I had the fried trio which they broiled for me. I was so stuffed I couldn't finish all of it. This is by...More

Waiter staff is always friendly.. I go here for others celebrating birthdays, showers etc. Maybe its because I am allergic to shellfish, and always have to get the fish or a salad, is why I am NEVER satisfied with my meal.

Just opened about a month ago. HUGE menu...seafood but so much more. It has a large bar area, plus a separate dining room. The atmosphere is nice, service kinks are being worked out, and the food is fantastic. The crab cakes give most a run for their money in this area of crab cake experts.
