I have been dining here for years and never had a bad meal. The service is always great and the prices are very reasonable. It's the best kept lunch secret in the area!

We stopped in on a Tuesday afternoon for dinner. We were greeted and seated immediately. We had to ask for a different table because, despite the room being nearly empty, the hostess insisted on seating us right beside the customer entrance or the staff entrance. It never ceases to amaze my why restaurants insist on seating patrons at their worst... More

Casual "captain's ship" atmosphere. Best crab cakes and crab imperial I have ever had. All of the choices are fantastic. There is a long wait, but you can go down along the bay to their "Crabby Jack's, where there is live music, and you can get drinks and appetizers. If anyone asks me where to eat in Somers Point, I...

We eat here several times a year and sometimes just go to the bar for a drink and hor d'oeuvres. The food and service is always excellent. This place is crowded year round so if you hate to wait to eat this may not be the place for you. Trust me, if you wait you will not be disappointed.

This restaurant still attracts a large crowd in the off season which reflects on how people in the area feel about it. We try to stop there whenever we have a chance when the summer crowds have gone home. The prices are reasonable for the portions provided. The seafood combinations, cold and broiled, are packed with abundant, fresh seafood, prepared... More
