If you're starving before you go, eat a small snack. The wait could easily be 45-60 min. To be fair, we visited a couple of days after the opening of Chesapeake Bay blue crab season, however this funky restaurant stays busy all year. What to eat? Well, we had hush puppies, Maryland vegetable crab soup, and CRABS! Once seated the... More

OK the location isn't all that great BUT, the crabs are great! Steamed Crabs are always fantastic (very consistant!) and the servers are wonderful. I also recommend the Heloti Ngata special: Steamed Shrimp/Onions/Potatoes as well which is really good!!! Dont go for the location... go for the seafood!

I have eaten at this place many times and the crabs by far are the best in Maryland. Crab Cakes score very high in my opinion. Great place to stop and meet friends for drinks or dinner. The waiter and waitress are the best.

When in Maryland, you must eat crab, you must eat seafood. If you want a great taste of local cuisine, try Seaside. It's nothing fancy, but when you always see a full parking lot, it's usually a good sign. My crab cake dinner was among the best I've ever had. Fried shrimp were excellent and the sides added just the... More

Everything I've eaten here has been great. The Maryland Crab Soup is very good, but my personal favorite is the Crab Cake sandwich. I still haven't tried their crabs but I hope I get the opportunity to do that soon. This is a great place to come with a large group (like the extended family) as there are lots of... More

Had lunch here many times with my coworkers, haven't heard any complaints on any of the meals, it's all good from everything I've had there. The cream of crab soup is a must, some of the best I ever had. The staff is very friendly. Will return soon.

Came here with a few friends while traveling from out of town. Everyone wanted seafood so we decided on here because it was close to our hotel.We went on a Sunday and it was packed. They had two parties going on while we were there. The service was a little slow but it was packed. I would definitely recommend the... More

I really enjoyed the crabs when we went last summer. Had always heard good things and I was not disappointed. Would probably be a good spot for sports games because there were TV's everywhere.

Went here with my daughter for dinner. We ordered the steam clams appetizer - they were a nice size (fairly large) but, 4 out of 6 should have been cooked a little longer. They were very tough and chewy. For dinner I ordered the crab imperial it was okay (had better had worse) and my daughter ordered the rock fish.... More

This was the third place of eating dinner during our business trip. All three of us enjoyed what we ordered and even took pictures which I see I can upload here. The service was just as good as the food. I had the crab and cheese souffle (I think). The others had the grouper and fried plate. All was excellent.... More
