“Eat in or take out”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

To get to Crisfield you have to pass Lintons. If it is lunch time get the flounder sandwich it is large. They have a large selection of seafood. Call ahead and place your carry out. Or stay and eat there. But they do not have late hours .

“Awesome crabs!”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

We were cruising our boat southward through the Chesapeake Bay working our way to FL. Stopped a number of places along the way but couldn't find a crab house serving traditional style steamed crabs until we arrived in Crisfield, MD ("the blue crab capitol of the Chesapeake"). Unfortunately, almost all of the crab houses were closed for the season - BUT, we were told to try Linton's, which was a little ways out of town. Hired a taxi to drive us out ($35) - and ordered our crabs, onion rings, & coleslaw in the seafood shop. Unfortunately, wine wasn't available (we could've brought it in had we known - our fault for not asking), but beer was ice cold. Another mistake, we thought the minimum order was a dozen (not so) but we hadn't had such a treat in quite a while, so we figured we could deal with it. You walk next door to an adjacent screened in porch with picnic tables and one of the sons who run the business brings in your order. They were amazing - deliciously seasoned, huge, hot, and so tasty. Onion rings good, don't bother with coleslaw. It's a total casual experience and would be really fun with a group. Best crabs we've ever had!!! P.S. Another $35 taxi ride back to marina.

“Not fancy, just good food”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

Linton's is a family-owned seafood market, that added on a screened crab deck and an air conditioned crab house to offer their customers wider dining experience. Place your order at the seafood market counter and let them know if you'd like to sit on the crab deck or in the crab house. Food is prepared and brought to your table piping hot. On our last visit, they easily accommodated our party of seven.

Though we were ready to spend the money for the Jumbo sized hard shells, they had run out by the time we placed our order. We were assured that the lower priced mediums, though smaller, would not disappoint and we were not lead astray. It was a nice evening and we decided to take advantage of the crab deck. Save room for the homemade Smith Island Cake slices in the dessert case. There were no less than 6 flavors of the decadent Maryland State dessert available. The youngest in our party got crab shaped lollipops made of chocolate.

All in all, it was nice, relaxing evening with great food and great company. We'd do it again!

“Best Flounder Samwhich!”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

Coming from PA to the Crisfield area twice a month, we always stop at Lintons and get a flounder samchich. The fillet is so big half is on the roll and half is not.

“Crabs in the crab capital!”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

We stayed the weekend in Crisfield and were very excited to try what many say is the rigt way to do blue crabs in a state that's known for its seafood contribution. The crabs were slightly overpriced and while they had a good flavor they weren't exactly the heaviest crabs we've ever had. The shrimp were advertised as best around and also didn't live up to that title. They weren't bad but again expectations were so high that we left feeling underwhelmed. The staff was very nice and everything was hot and fresh. We would go back IF we were in the area again, but we wouldn't go out of our way to sample what we can have at any crab spot from OC to Lewes, DE.
