This Used to be the place in Hagerstown to get an excellent Crab Cake. Something went drastically wrong. Maybe a change of recipe , staff, who knows but something is definetly wrong here. In a few words the deluxe Crab cake sucked. I had a fried oyster platter which was also pretty bad. So until it turns around I don't think I will be back any time soon.

We were at the Mercedes Service Center today & asked where we could get lunch. We were directed to Chic's Seafood Restaurant. We got to it & had a nice cozy lunch. One side is a Fish Market & the other side a Restaurant. Good drink & delicious but affordable food. Every thing is fresh & made on the premises. The customer service was delightful as well as personable. It is quaint but clean. I will return for another round of Oysters at $12.50/dozen.

We buy live crabs and cook them ourselves. We bought a 1/2 bushel of live crabs and they were in a paper bag, supposed to be #1's, some were barely legal, and we got a total of 28 crabs, what a rip off. Some must have been dead also because we had to throw a couple out they tasted awful and were mushy! The second time we ordered 1/2 bushel again of the #1's after complaining about the first time getting ripped off and they tried to do it again, small crabs, low count. We told them we would buy a bushel, this way they had to go through them and at least fill a bushel basket instead of a paper bag. They were really small and the guy brought out two different bushels of crabs showing that these were what they paid for 1's, yet people eating in their restaurant had very large crabs served to them! The guy was a real fast talker saying things like" I'm gonna fix you up right this time buddy". Well, we don't need fixed up, just treated fairly, something they have no idea what that is! Go to Potomac Seafood around the corner, you won't be sorry!

Chic's has been in business for 30 some years and our experience there two weeks ago (8/2/12) as we passed thru on the way to the beach showed us why and gave us as mouth watering stqart to our vacation. Chic's features a variety of fin and shell fish right up to 3 sizes of steamed hardshell blue claw and newspaper on the tables. Two kinds of crab soup started our meal and i followed up with fried oysters while my wife ordered a crab cake. Both were excellent! It's not that easy to find and excellent restaurant crabcake eve in Maryland. We intend to do a repeat performance tomorrow on our way back north to Rochester, NY. The retail store in an adjoining building/room features virtually everything that the restaurant serves and more for thoe locals who want to eat at home.

If you are in the mood for some seafood, this place can't be beat. It has a wide variety of offerings and the food tastes fresh and delicious! The seating is limited, but they also offer takeout. The hush puppies are some of the best we have ever had. A great place for seafood at a reasonale price. Family friendly too!
