Not sure how they have the nerve to charge 30.00 for their buffet. There are about five bland fried seafood items, over cooked steam shrimp and muscles. View is nice, service was good but it hurt to pay 68.00 for this meal. Won't be back.

Can't ask for a better atmosphere. We had a place at the window looking right out into the water, so pleasant. Steamed shrimp were huge and the best I've had. Home made pies, key lime our favorite. Almost forgot we had tenderloin sandwich. Very tender and juicy. Not out of line at all as far as pricing and worth it... More

Stopped in for lunch. Got crab soup and one trip salad bar. Very good food but is a touch pricey for what you get. Lunch with tip for two $27

I met several girlfriends for lunch here recently. It was early on a weekday, and we were the first customers. We were seated quickly and two baskets of hot hushpuppies arrived, they were good! We decided to get a dozen steamed crabs. The crabs arrived steaming hot but it was soon evident that they were not freshly cooked, but reheated... More

Quaint location, like stepping back in time a few decades, to the old time vacations of the 70's. The food is average typical seafood fare. They have a seafood buffet and salad bar. They also have a menu with a good selection of fish, crabs, steaks, frog legs, and homemade desserts. Prices are a little expensive for the area -... More

The view was great!! I stared out with a cup of cream of crab soup. Not so good. It was not creamy it was watery and it didn't have a great taste. The salad bar was fresh. I ordered the surf and turf meal which consisted of 4 fried shrimp and rib eye steak. The shrimp was ok but the... More

I have been going here since the early 80's and have always enjoyed it. Nothing over the top just good food and awesome views. I can't say enough about a restaurant that can make it this long. If you give this place a negative review I feel you just look to complain, you probably will do that with everything.

Always good & the food is always prepared consistently- never a drama or wonder what you're gonna get! Fresh seafood- the freshest salad bar! Ask for Melissa and you'll be in great hands for a delightful dining experience - eating good clean food and watching ospreys & cormorants along the beautiful Potomac River - doesn't get any better- I don't...

This is the place my mother's family has gathered to have seafood and beer and visit for decades. This unassuming mid-century modern spot sits on the banks of the Potomac and offers an awesome view of the water. A huge osprey nest is visible from the windows and fun to watch. Food includes hush puppies, crab cakes, soft shell crab,... More
