If you are looking for the classic Northern Chesapeake inn here's they place. Open seating in several areas from an intimate pub to a large dining area. Great seafood selections including classic style chowders. Local clients and staff are friendly.

Very good crab cakes and other seafood. Cool drink menu. Going back when the weather's warmer to sit on deck and crack crabs and drink beer. Not fancy, the way a crab place should be.........brown paper table clothes, down to earth kind of place.

We picked this for an on-the-go lunch and it was so delicious that we decided to come back and eat lunch the following day as well. Highly recommend the crab cakes, get them broiled not fried.

I was on my way to Sandy Cove and stopped by here after unable to find Nauti Goose (highly recommended by a friend.) I was not disappointed as the crabcake, mixed vegetables blend and hush puppies were all delicious and perfectly cooked to my liking. Thanks to recommendations of hush puppies by previous reviewers since not many restaurants offer this... More

Good place to eat. Serving sizes were large enough. Ambience was rustic, nautical theme. Not at all fine dining. Food was very good tasting. Wait staff was friendly and knew about the menu.

The food was great! Service - not so good. We had to ask for tea refills. Our server asked if I wanted fries instead of chips with my sandwich. I said yes. My sandwich came out with chips. When the server came over, she said I told her chips were OK. I told her no that is not I said.

Every year when we drive to Florida, we make it a point to spend the first night on the road on North East, MD. Route 95 goes right through it. Located at the top of Chesapeake Bay, it is a quaint seacoast town that reminds me of Nantucket Island. Lots of boutiques to browse in and what looks to be... More

My husband and I stopped in here after a friend had recommended a visit. We enjoyed the most delicious crab cakes. The menu had so many other good selections too. The restaurant has a rustic and fun atmosphere. While we visited in Feb., it looks like it would be a great place to visit during the summer months. We will... More
