We arrived for dinner during Happy Hour. No hostess. Dirty tables. Closed section on one side. We asked to sit in the restaurant, but was directed to sit in the bar instead. It's Friday! It's a bar atmosphere. Got it. Just wanted to sit in the restaurant. I should have known when I had to search for a server that... More

Great place for a burger or steak sandwich. We like to eat on the balcony. Nice view of the ocean, and people watch.

I could not believe my eyes! My husband I were there over the New Years weekend and we decided to stop in for a drink. We also ordered some wings. We sat at a tall round table by the bar and we could see directly into the kitchen. We ordered bloody marys - they were good and some wings -... More

Now I understand it was Thanksgiving day, but the bartender, Sean (something like that) kept telling us at the bar we were lucky because he decided to work. Hon I've been bartending since 1986 holiday work is PART OF THE JOB! Stop whining and suck it up or you shouldn't have come in! Getting the attention was difficult because I... More

We had gone here before the Christmas Parade as they offered free funnel cake fries and hot cocoa for the kids. It was her cramped in there. My son kept on bumping against a picture that was very loosely nailed to the wall. The server has a personality of a cardboard box..and you could tell she was just there to... More

We ate here while on vacation. It was packed. After waiting a long time, we were seated in a noisy dining room. Food was just average. I probably would not return.

Do not like elderly customers. My husband and I wanted to try this Green Turtle when we visited Ocean City. We usually go to the Green Turtle in West Ocean City and always have excellent service. We walked into the one on Coastal Highway and did not get a very friendly welcome. We wanted to sit in the bar area... More
