We had two couples and each couple split an Admirals Plate which had a nice mix of scallops, shrimp, fish, and crab cake plus a couple sides.. Every was very satisfied. This is a classic local place out in the country, not fancy but certainly clean and quaint. I believe they are closed beginning November 1. We had excellent service... More

I would not recommend this restaurant for the AYCE option. We had planned to do this but everyone except one changed their mind when we got there. Our friend who did order that was disappointed. Our appetizers and entrees were served before he got his first crab. They were cooked well and still tasty because this is the best time... More

We stopped at the Old Mill Crab House on our way to Ocean City and the crabs were exceptional. For sides, we ordered corn on the cob and hush puppies; both exceeded expectations. We ordered a dozen crabs but received 15, a combination of heavy medium and larges. We will be returning, but need to go before they close for... More

This is serious seafood. Go hungry. As with all seafood it can be pricey. You only get what you pay for. If you want a genuine Eastern Shore experience then c'mon! It is high quality, delicious food served with a smile.

We were a party of 11 and experienced horrible service. Not so much from the waitress, but the kitchen was a disaster. One of us never did get our dinner, and the rest of us were served dinner over a period of 1 1/2 hours! When the kids did get their chicken, it was undercooked and had to go back.... More

On our way to Ocean city for the weekend, my family and I ste here. It was really good. The food is fresh and everything we ordered was really good. The only disappointment is that was got there close to closing and they ran out of crab soup. Next time we will get there early. My whole family loves this... More

Food was very good. Restaurant was noisy. Hush puppies were interesting. Served with powdered sugar on top. Crabs seemed a little bit small, but tasty. Served with a side of butter, although I would have preferred vinegar instead. Greens were very good as well. Fries needed more seasoning. I would come back here when it's not so crowded.

So we went for a work recognition event in the back of the restaurant and the noise from the restaurant did not let us be able to listening to the recognition. The room was quite small and we could barely walk around! But this minor issues where forgiving because the food was amazing and everything taste excellent!
