This past weekend was beautiful so my sister and I decided to go to JP's Wharf. The place was soooo busy both inside and outside. We sat at the inside bar ordered some drinks and a crab dip to start. After the dip she got...More

I have been here before and am back with a group of friends. We sat on the deck outside and it was great weather and a great view. Three of us had the beer battered shrimp and fries in a basket. The food was delicious....More

We went there for lunch. Location on the water was promising, but the town is nondescript and the restaurant itself lackluster. Food was, at best, so-so. Too much filler in crabcake for the price. Service was on the slow side, not attentive, and the prices...More

The place is lovely. The food is good. Portions are way too small for the prices they're putting up, which are prices that are common in large cities like New York or Boston. The two star rating however comes from how they treated us when...More

Food was very good. Service was not. I asked if they were short staffed as it sure wasn't crowded this July 11th, 2017 night. When we arrived, there couldn't of been more than 30 customers in the restaurant. And that included the customers sitting inside...More

We'd been wanting to try this restaurant for several years. Went there on a special occasion. Food was a little pricey and portions small. Dinner for 2, plus tip, came to a little over $90. The crab cakes were really good!

Have been going there for years. Great seafood served on the patio looking over the river, or in the air conditioned dining room. For adult beverages there is are excellent bars inside and out.
