“Must get the lemonade! ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

Wraps and fresh made lemonade is so good! My favorite is the strawberry lemonade, absolutely delicious! Their outside seating is also a plus! It is slightly expensive for what you're getting, but it is worth it.
The service varies, I've had staff wait on me that are nice and wonderful but a lot of the staff is stuck up and it creates a tense atmosphere.

“Service AND Food was so good, we went there twice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

We arrived in Ocean City hungry and waiting for our hotel room to be made ready, so I mentioned the Crazy 8's as a restaurant highly rated on this website. I was pleasantly surprised to find it located across the street from our hotel, so we immediately made our way over there.

It is a small restaurant, with equal numbers of people ordering food for take out as well as those who sat in the surfer-themed seating area. We all started out with refreshing lemonades / teas to drink. Note - order your tea without sugar. The fruit in it will give it a slightly sweet flavor, and it is so much more refreshing.

While seated and waiting for our food (and we didn't have to wait too long) I noted a number of locals coming into the place to get something to go. That indicates just how popular this place is with those living and working in Ocean City.

We never noted any issues with the service; the young ladies (and they are all young ladies) were very friendly and quick to refill our drinks while checking on our food.

Several of us ordered the soups of the day, and no one was disappointed. The sandwiches were fine, and I appreciated the ability to substitute sweet potato fries for chips. Like a deli they serve a dill pickle spear with every meal, and it was crisp and tart - these weren't old pickles!

When we asked when the Lobster Bisque was going to be served, they didn't know but told us to check their Facebook page in the morning - when the chef decides what to serve that day.

We only stayed two days in Ocean City, but it was a unanimous choice to go back to the Crazy 8's for another fine lunch as we were leaving town. Again, it was great food and great service, so we all knew that it wasn't a fluke the first time we ate there.

If you decide to sit and eat there, recommend the booth at the back of the restaurant. It is a bit elevated and is just a touch more comfortable for tall people.

When we go back to Ocean City, we'll be sure to stop in again at the Crazy 8's!

“Poor service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

Went because it was so highly rated, very disappointed. Food and drinks were good, however it took so long for our food to come we were leaving without it. If you have to eat here be prepared to wait a long time to eat.

I have reached out and apologized to this customer for their food taking so long. Some days you simply cannot seem to get out from "the weeds" no matter how hard you dig, and yesterday was one of those days. To any other customer who felt like they had to wait a long time yesterday, you have my apologies as well. My staff did the best job they could and I am still very proud of their efforts during the chaotic lunch yesterday.

“Amazing Place, Delicious Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014 via mobile

Went to this place because of its high Trip Advisor rating, and it certainly lived up to its rating as one of the best restaurants in Ocean City. The place is a little hard to find, because it's attached to a surf shop, but definitely worth the trip! The outside seating has a nice view of the bay. This will definitely be a stop on our next Ocean City vacation!

“Great Food and Excellent Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

We just made our first visit to Crazy 8's. We go to OC every year and have our traditional go to places, some of which I first went to 40-50 years ago. We wanted to try something new. Based on Trip Advisor and other online reviews we picked Crazy 8's. There were seven of us ranging in age from 21 to 79 with widely varying tastes. Everyone found something that looked good and none of us were disappointed. It's now on our List!
