Everything was great. I had the crabcake sandwich and my daughter had a burger. Very good, fresh food. Very happy with the service and will definitely go back there on my next trip to OCMD.

Beautiful view of the harbor and Ocean City. Good food. Sometimes a little too much frill and sauces added .

I was hyped for this place - i was trying to find a good restaurant to go to in OC for dinner that wasn't all fried and had really high expectations for here, but it was just average. For the price and the service, it...More

We brought our grandson, 10, and he loved the crusty bread and small appetizers that came right away. Our waiter was professional and pleasant.

We write our menu twice daily based on what's fresh and available. The majority of our ingredients are sourced locally so we never know what we're going to have on hand. The beauty of that is we always have a seasonally... More

real food * from scratch We believe that great food and healthful ingredients are not mutually exclusive of each other. We buy organic produce from local farmers and seafood from the commercial fishing harbor right outside our restaurant. We feature all natural products - steering clear of preservatives and antibiotics. Whole grains and whole foods are used in the preparation of our menu - which our chefs write twice daily, based on what's fresh, available and delicious. Fresh. Local. Organic. Taste the difference.
