Love it when JPs opens back up. Enjoyed fresh rockfish caught that morning. Kid friendly, beautiful outdoor deck. Drinks are great, strawberry pie will change your life! So happy every year when I see it opened again.

I was not impressed at all by the food here. Service was just OK. The view was amazing. Away from tourists. Close to the Bayview Inn.

Another beautiful day on the dock for eating crabs. Heavy, meaty, Maryland crabs, too! Service was good - everything you could ask for.

This is not the first time we have dined at JP's. We usually share the J.P.'s Steamed Combo ($39.00 - All your favorites in one. Snow legs, shrimp, clams, mussels and lobster tail), with a side of fries. This time we were ending a weekend visit by our daughter and son-in-law (great people, by the way). They were heading home... More

I ate at JP's last evening. The special catch of the day was yellowfin tuna. It was served blackened and was delicious. I also ordered the side salad and summer vegetable mix. All was tasty.

Cute place, friendly staff, good seafood, nice water views. One word of caution- the indoor dining rooms gets very loud, sound seems to bounce around inside, sit outside if you can.

This was our third time at this restaurant - and our last. We were there last week and my husband didn't care for the fish and chips but loved my crab cakes so we went back. Today we were there with our daughter and two young sons. The waiter was young and very helpful, bringing a bowl of French fries... More

On 6/18/20156, my fiancee and I had visited here. We had the tuna appetizer, she had the steamed combination and I had the burger with crab dip. Everything was very good and very fresh. Our server and other staff members were very friendly also. We would recommend the strawberry cake along with the rum cake if they have it in.... More

Ate here for dinner. The prices were reasonable. The flounder sandwich was a nice sized portion and the fries were crispy and fresh. The calamari was ok. The breading was a bit heavier than I like. It was more like a frozen onion ring breading then a fresh made breading. I'm guessing they were frozen.

Nice location along the water with outdoor seating and a bar area. Burger I had was meaty, cooked well with a good seal to stay juicy, and the bacon was crisp....the way I like it. Bun held together well too. Crab dip was not as creamy as I am accustomed too, but it allowed the natural crab taste to be... More
