Excellent food (as always) and good drinks in a fun, casual waterfront setting. Probably the best casual fare in all of Anne Arundel County. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

I had chili and cornbread and it was the best. Anything I have ever had there has been delish. We shared fried pickles for an appetizer and they were the best I've ever had too. Other dishes I've enjoyed are the crab cakes and coleslaw....More

Great food in a casual setting. The service is friendly and capable. This location is really wonderful in a nice day. We should probably be keeping The Point a secret, but we hope for their continued success.

agree with Elle regarding the crab dip, we should have sent it back too but was a special treat for my niece and I didn't want to draw attention to it, not even 1 piece of crab large or small, more like a cream cheese broth, what gives guys, you are better then this

I haven't had the crab dip recently. A conversation with the chef should produce positive results. I still give the restaurant high marks.
How is it for lunch? Is it open on Wednesdays?

A long-delayed answer but I went for lunch a few weeks back. It was on a Friday but open & tasty. I'm sure by now you've discovered they open at 11 am. Happy lunching.

Bring your Aunt. The place is heated and comfortable. Have her bring a sweater if she is afraid to be in a drafty place. If the weather is cool outside , they will have overhead heaters on.
