Gordons is an interesting place to visit as it appears to be a favorite gathering place for the locals to hang for breakfast. We stopped in early one morning and ordered egg and bacon breakfast sandwiches. While waiting we got into a great conversation with some of the watermen. It was obvious we were out of towners but it didn’t... More

This is definitely a local hangout, the fishermen hang out here. The menu is99% breakfast sandwiches. Everything is fried except for the bread that the sandwiches come on. It's a "been there, done that" type of place. Very loud when the fisherman get off of their boats.

This is where the locals/waterman go to shoot the breeze and catch up on the local gossip. They still serve old style coca cola. Aka by the locals "A Gordon's Coke" and if you like coffee, they both are a must. Look past the old run down dirtiness, and order some food. The employees are very nice and help full.

Friendly staff, swift service. The milkshakes were good, the grilled cheese with bacon was fine, the crabcakes were not plump, but they were tasty and homemade. The steak fries and Krinkle fries were crispy and hot. I did not like the coffee; I understand this is due to the local water, and many of the locals like it just fine!... More

Gordon's isn't just a restaurant. It's the hub of Crisfield community. Folks don't just go to eat, they go to visit. It's a small unassuming place with a few rickety tables and about 7-8 stools tucked up under a counter stacked high with Tastykakes and Little Debbie's. But check out the five busy people working the grill and you know... More

Gordon's is small and quaint and has more character than you would expect. You have to allow yourself to take a step back and appreciate the character it offers. It isn't fancy, but it's not supposed to be. The service is friendly. It has a diner feel, and you have to try the homemade soda! It's beyond affordable, and if... More

This place must have a very dedicated local base to stay in business for so long. As other reviewers have stated, this place is extremely dated and has been here forever. Don't expect to walk in and have a seat with a guy in all white clothing to give you a fresh milkshake in a room that's been renovated to... More

This is a local institution and we had to get a cup of coffee there. The coffee was good, but I wouldn't want to order food there. I don't know if there are health inspections in Crisfield, but in CT there would be many problems. The place is dirty and it looks like most of the flooring and fixtures do... More

The morning breakfast sandwiches cannot be beat. Enjoy the scrapple sandwiches. The lunch menu of sandwiches are great. The servers are so friendly and theatmosphere is good.
