We've been twice to Surf House and enjoyed fresh, well prepared seafood, including seafood tacos and ceviche. Service is attentive and swift. Our most recent visit included our dogs. We sat outside and were thankful for the water offered our canine family members. Surf House...understands well that it's in the hospitality business. It serves delicious food and makes its guests feel welcome in a cheerful atmosphere.More

I eat here regularly, the food is awesome but it may be the worst managed restaurant on the east coast. Definitely on Hawaii time🤪. It probably survives only to the fact it is one of a few restaurants in Urbana and the food is great.

This is a small restaurant with only a few tables to accommodate a party of 6. There are some tables for 4 and a number of booths. Six in a booth would be tight unless you had young children. Six of us dined. Our server...was John and he was excellent. All of our orders were presented just as we asked. My wife ordered the Grilled Chicken w/Avocado, Spicy Aioli on Jalapeño Cheddar Bread. She loved her meal. The chicken was moist and the bread was very tasty, especially with the butter she asked for. Her side dish was sweet potato fries that were excellent. I ordered the Roasted Half Chicken w/Salsa Verde & Garlic Butter. My side was rice and beans. While the spices they used okay (just not to my liking), the chicken was so moist. The breast and thigh was deboned and that was a pleasant surprise. I did find it interesting that there was no wing, but not a big deal since it was plenty eat. I did enjoy a bowl of the rice and beans. While I don't have a picture, my son ordered the Dude Burger; Certified Angus Beef blend of brisket, short rib, and chuck, with American and Provolone cheese (he chose to not have them add the lettuce, tomato & onion) with mayo on a soft potato bun. He said it was one of the top three burgers he's ever eaten. They do have a bar. We definitely plan to return in the near future.More

The calamari was the best I have had in the Frederick area. The spicy fish sandwich was truly delicious. The beer selections are great!

After a full day of engaging meetings, we looked for a place to unwind. The menu was limited. Once we got our food, we are pleasantly surprised at the great flavor in our dishes.

Awful! Their tuna fish ceviche is actually a few tuna pieces swimming in soy sauce. The soy sauce, in addition to being extremely salty, was simply overwhelming and totally destroyed the taste of the tuna. Don’t order it! Service was initially good, but the waitress...—who goes by the initials AS— eventually got involved in a long conversation with other clients. It took her for ever to pickup my payment.More

We stopped on our way home, hoping to find a new place to make a trip to, as it is 45 minutes from home. About one half of the people in the restaurant were staff, four tables had diners. Our waitress was very sweet and...was constantly on the move. Drinks took about 15 minutes to get to our table, one margarita and one lemonade. The food was good, but not overwhelmingly so. I ordered a second margarita, which was very disappointing and bitter. The waitress apologized and asked for a replacement. That is when the fun began. We could hear the manager's comment from across the bar, "I made it the same as always, I don't know what's wrong". The waitress brought me a new one, which was better, but still had a biter taste. The manager came to our table to "explain" . As we were leaving, I asked to speak to the manager and let him know that I didn't appreciate his approach to our table or how his staff seemed embarrassed about a mistake. The manager then informed me that the reason for the staff's embarrassment was because of me and my complaining.More

We hadn't been here for a few months, but I'm never disappointed in the quality of the food and the tastiness. It's a true break from the chain restaurant menu selection. Seafood and land food (including vegetarian) is always fresh and filling. The calamari appetizer...is perfectly cooked.More

Heard about this place from a friend. Nice dinner with great fresh menu of fresh seafood, fish tacos, salads, and other sandwiches in a casual beach OBX atmosphere. Conveniently located off 270 between Germantown and Frederick in Urbana. The service and fresh fish tacos of...Mahi Mahi and Salmon were very good. The burritos are good and original from chicken, steak and seafood. Reasonably priced and a nice evening out. Definitely recommend and will be back with entire family.More
