found this place as it was only one serving food after 9pm on a Thursday night. The crab cake was amazing, we just HAD to have Maryland crab cakes. Service was good. Food arrived quickly and was hot.

Beware, the restaurant is closed for repairs with no anticipated reopen date posted :( The restaurant is family friendly and usually always has seating available.

We ended up here for dinner on a Monday night because our original place was having issues with their kitchen equipment. I didn't care for our server. He was too slick and wanted us to think he was doing us favors. For example he made...More
