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

The waitress was absolutely incredible. Couldn't have asked for better. My son and I opted for the seafood buffet....perhaps a menu item would have been tastier and more fresh. My husband ordered a pasta... Very bland and with a low budget look and feel. The buffet is definitely not worth the price. I did see other tables order snow crab... More

It was our first night in the area and we ended up here. (Me and my 3 children) Funny enough we had picked two other places out but they were closed (we found that a norm in Colonial Beach - lots of places closed 2-3 days a week). I am glad we picked this. The place was not overly busy... More
