Service is terrible. Waitress acted like she didn't want to be here. We asked for a bar menu because someone in our party who has been coming here for over 20 years, always ordered from it. Waitress had an attitude about having to get it....More

Staff and fishing great. The food not too good. Had a seafood extravaganza and it was cold. Food not as good as the past.

I would not recommend this. There are hints of greatness curried in total failure. We sat on the patio and smelled a fishy smell that went away when the wind shifted coming from the bay. Got warmed brie with caramelized pecans that tasted like wood,...More

We stayed at the Inn and ate downstairs our first night. Overall this place has a ton of potential as a destination location, but one quickly learns that Tilghman Island seems to cater to the locals and charter boats--nothing like St. Michaels a little further...More

We were celebrating our anniversary, and we were looking for someplace quaint and quiet to go. This place definitely fit the bill. Our room had an awesome view which made the cost worth it. The bed was comfortable, but some curtains on the windows would...More

Large portion steamed blue crab and carrot cake were good. Craft beer selection, good service. They showed us how to eat the crab which was helpful and needed! Crab ball apps also good

I am sorry I can not help. It is unusual for them to be closed. Before driving down, call or email even though it is a beautiful drive down.

Wonderful... locals favorite. Know they have a special "oyster" night, but give them a call to find out what the latest prices and sizes are for crabs. Generally, at the end of the summer season, the crabs are larger.
