Let me first start off by saying that I didn't grow up eating any seafood, despite living in MD my whole life. I first ate here about 8 years ago and got the most simple seafood on the menu (I think it was fried shrimp!)....More

Not bad, but basically paid $25 for fish and chips. Flounder comes with 2 sides but most sides were potatoes (shoestring fries, mashers, no baked potato). Could have had same or better food at most bar/restaurants in the $15 range. Also, $6.75 for watered down...More
