Have been here before but this time was either an off night or they have declined. The location is nice as it is on the water but the meal was not great: etouffee was more like a stew with the oysters very fishy and one friend had crab imperial which was tasty but the crab had not been cleaned properly...

I do hope you will return as you have indicated you have had some very good experiences at Town Dock. Just as I say 222 very good or excellent reviews can't be wrong, four out of the past five reviews indicate that we have some problems that need to be fixed. We are changing the menu this week and going... More

We were seated right away with a view to the water but after that we waited and waited and waited. There were not many tables seated besides ours so I don't understand why we had to wait so long. We shared the oysters casino appetizer and we each had a salad that was unremarkable. I had a glass of wine... More

I am sorry that you experienced such slow service. I'd like to know the exact date so I could at least pin point the day and perhaps address this to staff more specifically. I can't understand why your service was so slow, so all I can do is offer my apologies and make our staff aware of some of the... More

We were there on June 11th. 2015 Our meal was lovely - We had Crab Risotto and BBQ Ribs along with a extremely large salad. Our food was good, hot and plenty of it for left overs to take home! Upon entering they seemed to have been slammed with lots of couples for dinner. There was an event going on... More

Great seats overlooking the water totally ruined by one of the worst meals I ever had in my life. My crab imperial had more filler than store bought frozen crab cakes and so over salted it was totally inedible, my wife's meal was equally horrible. A 110.00 dollar disappointment

What a disappointment! We were seated by a window and sat there for almost 10 minutes before a server, who was not ours, asked if our server had been to our table yet. We told him no, and he graciously took our drinks order, then went to fetch our server. Turns out they sent her home and did not tell... More

I get that you are really irritated, but was it really necessary for each of you to write a review?(see above review). Obviously some mis-communication in the beginning, but thank you to the Server who picked up on your wait and took control. I take every review seriously and we will be addressing this in our next kitchen meeting. It... More

Perhaps this restaurant deserves a higher rating and we just ordered poorly. We both had the crab and mushroom risotto. It was very creamy and rich. The mushrooms flavor survived the creaminess, however, the crab did not. I trust the crab was there but neither of us could taste it.perhaps we should have had a simple crab or fish entree.... More

Thank you for suggesting readers look at our other reviews since they are overwhelmingly positive. Not the case with the two above I am afraid. It sounds as if the risotto was prepared correctly, but either not enough crab or the mushrooms just overpowered the dish. I have relayed this feedback to the kitchen and we'll determine whether to re-work... More

Started the meal with their delicious trademark towndockatini. Moved on to rockfish Oscar while my husband enjoyed the mahi mahi with tropical fruit salsa. Excellent. As was the service.

We had lunch here on a very hot day in early June. Lovely and air-conditioned inside (but not cold). We sat on the enclosed deck, so we were looking our across the water, absolutely lovely. Lunch for me was an iceberg wedge (awesome) and a crab cake - also awesome! Fries on the side, and a big glass of iced... More

My husband and I ate here for a couples night out. What a great choice. After all these years of visiting here the spectacular beauty of St. michaels harbor in the summer never fails! Our rockfish was perfectly cooked and we had a nice fruit and spinach salad. The bread pudding was good. As always the service was the best... More

Nice setting on water with both indoor and outdoor seating. Indoor is in a tiered style so every table has a view of the water. I had the calamari appetizer, oyster stew and rockfish with crab as my main course. All were A-1. Good service with knowledgeable waiter.
