Review of Brother's Bistro

Reviewed 20 August 2017

Entered the restaurant from the beach side, seated by rude hostesses. Decided to sit at the bar which seemed to insult the waitress. Whatever you do DO NOT get any seafood. Got the seafood bistro special. Pasta was cooked ok as well as the shrimp. Scallops were dried and chewy, clams and mussels were dried out, sauce was tasteless. Place was dark and dirty. Complete waste of time and money.

We visit Brother's Bistro every year when we want pizza for dinner. They have a large menu and the pizza is great. We are always happy with our service, and this year our waitress went above and beyond. She was attentive, friendly and helpful. Another pro to visiting this restaurant is that there never really seems to be a wait.

We come to Ocean City every summer and tend to hit the same restaurants each time. Received a coupon for Brothers Bistro and decided to give it a try. It will now be added to our "must" list next year with or without a coupon. Ordered the white pizza and it was delicious! Our waitress was friendly with just the right amount of attentiveness. We were seated outside along the boardwalk for optimal people watching.

We went into this restaurant because a storm was coming and it was attached to our hotel. Food selection was limited and pricey but had a nice drink menu so it would have been manageable. They sat us at a table and then not one single person came by to talk to us, or give us silverware or water. We have been at the beach all day and water is definitely needed! No manager in site check on things or making sure tables are serviced. Finally, after 20 mins I flagged down a busboy and asked him to send our waiter/waitress to our table. This seemed a perplexing question and he went to tell someone who then sent someone to our table. After explaining the lack of service and how other tables who had been seated after us ALREADY HAD FOOD... all we got was an "I'm sorry what would you like?" No attempt made to make this right or make up for the inconvenience. We got some water to quench our thirst and ran elsewhere as fast as possible.

My family and I stayed at the hotel above this restaurant. Each of us (3 pairs of twos) had a separate terrible visit to this establishment. If we had warned each other before hand, it could have been avoided- but we weren't that lucky. On our visit for breakfast, we were ignored for almost 40 minute. We started off sitting outside, but after waiting 20 minutes and seeing new seated people being served- I was ready to go. But instead we asked to go inside to give it another chance. After being sat inside we waited another 10 minutes, until a random server came and gave us menus. I say random because when I confronted her, she had no idea I was still waiting for a server. After that, things started to actually look up. Our server was decent and the food was okay.
When we were outside, we watched the only server look at us many times before we spoke to a manager about moving. The manager I guess then never got us a server. The service is just bad, and the staff at the hotel advise you don't eat there- and that's just sad.
