Well as most have thought Dead end Saloon has closed down. The owners have decided to retire. The property is up for sale should anyone be contemplating a business venture... All my best to the former owners

Great location, very good menu for lunch or dinner. But we went there yesterday around 3:30 and the place was dark. Sign on door said Closed for Renovation. I do hope its only a temporary closure.

This is a laid back, easy-going place to get a good meal at a decent price--a blue-jeans and tee's type of place. Great service and ice-cold beer.

Good meal selection. Two in our party ordered nachos. They came out cold and chips were stale. Chicken quesadilla was good, chicken Philly was so so, chicken sandwich was over cooked. Service was adequate. Will not return during this vacation.More

On the ICW. Great place for cold brews, burgers and dinner. Love the fresh steamed shrimp and clams and a great French Dip sandwich at the bar. Decent selection of domestic draft and craft beers with friendly service.

Best place around for true Maryland Crab Cakes. No fillers, just chunks of crabmeat. Owners are from Maryland and know what a good crab cake should taste like. Other seafood and wonderful clam chowder is also served. Casual dining and full bar.
