The location simply can't be beat; but, apparently the kitchen staff hasn't discovered the wonders of spices. The food is absolutely bland. There were four in our party and three of us agreed on that point. And, by the way, we all ordered different dishes,...More

We can in with friends by boat which was interesting. Seemed to be plenty of slots. The wait was not terribly long even though there were lots of people. Service is quite fast. We enjoyed sandwiches and salads - all tasty.

This restaurant is at a local marina on the water. The Magothy River is a great little spot for a restaurant. The food is creative and reasonably priced. The bartenders were cheerful and attentive. Seems a little understaffed as we had to wait for the...More

I haven't had the crab dip recently. A conversation with the chef should produce positive results. I still give the restaurant high marks.

A long-delayed answer but I went for lunch a few weeks back. It was on a Friday but open & tasty. I'm sure by now you've discovered they open at 11 am. Happy lunching.

Bring your Aunt. The place is heated and comfortable. Have her bring a sweater if she is afraid to be in a drafty place. If the weather is cool outside , they will have overhead heaters on.
