Visited for a Paint Nite event - we showed up 45 mins before and ordered pretty much right away, around the same time most of the others seated around us. Other groups were finished and had their checks and we still had no food - the server likely forgot to ring in the food.

The food itself - burger was halfway decent with good fries, and the Old Bay wings were OK but nothing fantastic. Flatbread was completely raw.... like raw dough, uncooked. French dip on "Toasted Ciabatta" was disgusting.... some kind of steamed Steakumm looking meat, definitely not roast beef, on cheap Wal Mart quality roll was completely tasteless with a strange mealy consistency. We sent the flat bread back because it was inedible and the server even agreed it was raw. Yet we were still charged.

The place itself was kind of dirty - floors were really sticky, my shoes made a sticking sound everywhere I walked. The bar area is gross - old astro turf type indoor outdoor carpet which is coming up in places. The dining area isn't bad - nice fireplace, table cloths, etc. Kinda an odd juxtaposition.

My wife and I went there for lunch and both had the Chicken Chesapeke sandwich, and it was a wonderful adventure! The chicken was tender and plentiful and the crab imperial and chees toping was top notch. The atmosphere was a bit dated, but the table setting, silverware etc were top notch right down to the cloth napkins. Highly recommended!

This is a nice cozy, relaxed restaurant. We had a nice table by the fireplace, which was perfect as the evening was snowy. Two of us ordered the special but it had been sold out. Maine lobster stuffed with crab. They accommodated us by using different lobsters. All enjoyed the meals and drinks! The portion sizes were good as well. All in all I would return .

We popped in for dinner last night after a long hiatus from visiting and unfortunately were not wowed. Dinner was okay but not the really good, great value we remember from previous visits.

Our Bang Bang shrimp appetizer was $10.99 but only had 10 shrimp -- way fewer than you would get in a similar, cheaper appetizer at Bonefish Grill or Longhorn Steak House. Surf and turf -- steak was cooked to order but lots of fat; crab imperial was on the small side and greasy; steak fries were greasy and overcooked. The 10 ounce NY strip was cooked to order and tasty; cole slaw didn't taste like anything; boardwalk-type fries were good. With 3 beers and 1 mixed drink our bill came to $85 -- a bit pricey for the quality. We may return for bar food but sorry to say I don't think we will come back for a nice dinner.

This seafood joint was fantastic! It's real fish and not that "maybe it is but I can't really tell" fish like you might get at lesser quality joints. It was also a lot of food in the portion. I had the stuffed scallops and my parents had the stuffed salmon. It was all great. A definite do-over!
