Cozy atmosphere right on the ocean after a chilly walk- great find in off-season Ocean City. 1/2 price entrees on Thursdays! Very friendly staff, abundant portions--the clam linguini was the best! Only negative was the very 'un-Italian ' white bread! Will definitely go back!

Quaint sort of shabby chic atmosphere at 13th street and the boardwalk located in an older hotel I think it used to house a Phillips Seafood place years ago. Amazing ocean view thru the wall of windows. The fireplace keeps it cozy on cold winter evenings. The linguini with clams is melt in your mouth good and my husband loves... More

On a cold day at the beach Adolfo's has a warm fireplace and great atmosphere. Our first time there. The service was great and food was excellent.

Adolfo's wants you to like them. Inside a beachfront hotel, Adolfo's is alll Victorian coziness with a lit fireplace and piano bar. The dining room is chandeliered elegance and the staff is friendly. Guests in t-shirts fresh from the beach are made to feel welcome in these surroundings. But the food was tasteless! True, I went alone so I don't... More

The picture for this listing in Trip Advisor is a little confusing for persons not familiar with OC. The photo shown is the original location for Adolfo's, down in the inlet area. That has been leveled and the restaurant has moved to a new location in the Phillips By the Sea site on the Boards. While in a new location,... More

We visited about a year ago and were impressed. So this visit confirmed. Food is excellent, waitstaff is attentive, and ambiance is superlative. If you are an Italian food connoisseur, you will not be disappointed.

The food here is excellent and the service very attentive. The inside is nicely decorated with views of the beach and boardwalk. The crabby angel was fantastic and the portions very generous. The baked spinach is not to be missed - it is Delicious. Will definitely visit again.

We have been dining here for over 20 years and never have been disappointed. Food and service were excellent with great views of the Ocean. The piano bar and vocalist were an added treat.
