Visited Shymansky's specifically for crabs this time. Arrived at 2pm on a Sunday. Restaurant was about 1/2 full and we took a booth in the corner. I ordered crabs, my older son ordered the fried chicken dinner, and my husband ordered the crab legs & shrimp combo. I was told that hush puppies were included with my feast but I... More

There are many seafood restaurants in Southern Maryland. Several people recommended Shymanksy's and we were very pleased. There were four in our party and we had three different crab entries. Two of us had steamed crabs. They were very fresh and tasty. One had steamed shrimp and snow crab legs and found them to be among the best anywhere. I... More

We have been here for dinner several times and it's good, but we really like the breakfast buffet on Sundays. While it doesn't have an extensive array of food, it has all the traditional items and they're hot and tasty.

Paid for two rounds of same draft beer at bar, different price each time. Took nearly an hour to receive food after ordering; orders came out of kitchen over a period of 20 minutes, family members ended up eating at different times. Learned the place has been sold and will be closing in October, explained the difficulty with staffing.

We docked at the Shymansky Marina and enjoyed a delightful, laid back, seafood dinner at their restaurant. We had Rockfish and flounder and both were wonderful. Very relaxed dining!

We were lucky to have been able to get right in for dinner on a Saturday evening. Food was good and time spent with friends was priceless.

I live in Locust Grove, 1+1/2 hours away, totally worth the drive. Not fancy but delicious. The scrapple was perfect and hard to find anywhere else. They had fresh watermelon and cantaloupe that was sweet & delicious. And the French Toast and sweet potato pancakes were out of this world. We'll be back, a lot.

Been coming here with my family for more than 20 years. Dependable and delicious ! The crab cakes are my favorite. It's super casual and great if you're out cruising by boat.
