We had a group meal here before boarding the cruise at St. Michaels...it was a great decision! The food was delicious and generous. The wait staff did very well and it was wonderful to look out over the harbor area. Thank you!

A nice setting overlooking the harbor. Short walk form parking lot. Very uncomfortable seating at the dock level, Picnic table seating more for kids than adults and very uncomfortable for elder or disabled people. Service was pleasant and perfunctory, not really focused on customer. Cream...More
