This is a one of a kind in this area. Fresh from the local boats seafood. Market is the place for fresh fish. Anyone can advertise it but is that so. This place has a family history of fishing and now with a deck side restaurant, worth a visit in season.

We have been to Martin's many times but only for take out which I should mention is excellent. Recently we have invited friends to join us at their outside deck. The food was excellent and not to mention the prices are good. Their portions are large and we have always gone feeling stuffed. We have since been there w/children and... More

We experienced a couple of hiccups at this restaurant. One of our friends had a soup that was so salted it was not edible and another friend had a catch of the day that was undercooked. There was no charge for the soup and half off the fish that was half eaten. My wife and I enjoyed our meals. Scallops... More

Don't come here if you want a real restaurant experience. It's just fresh simple seafood here. Plastic utensils wire spool tables and cold beer. Best fried clans I've ever had.

This is my first happy hour visit. The shrimp was very good the wings were god awful. What the hell is the problem with making a wing sauce in this area? They charge a fortune and serve awful pigeon wings. Buy a jar of Frank's hot sauce and follow the instructions. The corn fritters were good. The beer was the... More

We had tried the Belly Busters before and wanted to try another recommended place for crabs. We decided to give this place a try. The location is great if you want a peaceful, quiet meal with your kids overlooking a part of the bay. It is a very quaint little store almost at the end of the Harbor road. Seems... More

We are here with the kids. Food portions were good. Crab cream soup was good not great. Fries were really tasty. Fish basket was alright. Cute place right on the bay.

Martin Fish Co. is both a restaurant and a market for fresh seafood. This review deals only with the restaurant aspect of their business. MFC is a bit off of the beaten path but still only a few minutes drive from Ocean City. The restaurant is essentially the back porch of the building overlooking a working harbor/inlet. The view is...

Had lunch there last week. The three of us had the crab cake sandwich, the flounder sandwich and shrimp salad. We also had cream of crab and vegetable crab soup. We cannot recommend either of the soups. The taste was not that of the traditional versions of either soup. The shrimp salad was OK, but nothing special. The crab cake... More

We've always heard about martins but hadn't tried it out. It's very small and I would recommend reservations. The seafood is very fresh and tasty too. Service was a little slow but we didn't have reservations so we were lucky to get a table. The view along the harbor is super! Crabby fries are a must!
