We sat at the bar and had a delicious dinner and listened to a great band, Bird Dog and the Road Kings and danced all night. The bartender was very attentive and we had a great experience there. One of our favorite places to go.

Even with a large menu, it seems more like a sandwich and appetizer place. A hangout for the locals. But don't let that fool you. The food here is excellent. I had the seafood medley which was a broiled platter consisting of flounder, crab cake, deviled crab, a clam casino, broiled shrimp, and two sides. The flounder was some of... More

I'm very disappointed in this restaurant. The service was slow. I ordered a cheeseburger. The first one came out burnt. They returned it and got me a new one that was also burnt. I just ate some of it but didn't enjoy it. I won't be going back.

We always spend at least one evening at BJ's. This restaurant/bar has one of the best settings in Ocean City. Right on the bay with a view of sunset. There are quite a few choices on the menu. We both had the Breaded Colossal Gulf Shrimp that were flash fried. There were six good sized shrimp that were very tender.... More

You owe it to yourself to go where the locals go in Ocean City. Billy and Maddy run a great establishment where food, drink and friends go together. Be sure to catch the duck feeding at 1 every afternoon.

Went off season to Ocean City. Hard to find a non-chain restaurant to eat at during off season. Found BJ's (on the bayside) because of their sign on the Coastal Highway. We had the Monday lunch special - Crab Royale. It came with 2 sides. Lots of food, ok quality, good value.

My husband had the sampler platter and was quite satisfied. I had the"flash fried shrimp". Rather disappointing. The shrimp was hard fried (scraped the roof of my mouth) and luke-warm. Server was a darling and the sunset was nice. Limited dessert menu and extra charges for just about everything.

Today was the first time we visited BJ's and we will definately be back. It is a rather large casual restaurant overlooking the bay...with lots of ducks, geese and even a blue heron. Aside from all that the food and service were very good. They have mainly fish and seafood with some beef and chicken dishes. They offer a large... More
