Food and service lives up to the billing, excellent beverage selections. You get what you pay for. Recommend the seafood, soft shell crabs especially as well as overall menu.

The award-winning restaurant features cuisine that is prepared using many Eastern Shore products. It is with great pride that we support local watermen, farmers, and area businesses. Because much of our fare is made from locally available ingredients, the menu changes frequently, often daily. Everything is house-made, including the ice cream! Our bar is well stocked, and the extensive wine list offers selections from around the world.
