Went for raw bar. Had oysters and then entrees. All food was very good. Had to flag waitress to order entrees. Sat at bar. Prices normal for tourist area. Was not crowded. Staff helpful when asked for something

We were out wandering around (up from OCMD) and decided to try this little place. The service was friendly and prompt. We had grilled oysters, steamed clams, crab cakes, and crab legs. Everything was amazingly fresh. The crab cakes were lumpy (in the good way!),...More

Vacationed in the area and were visiting Bethany Beach. Suffered through torrential downpours for a couple of days, and could only find a few restaurants that were open. I am not a "seafood" person, although my husband is, so this particular restaurant would not have...More
