I was in Silver Spring on a business trip and found Crisfield's on Trip Advisor. The restaurant is very dated and could use an upgrade. There is a large bar when you enter the restaurant. There is a hostess but not entirely sure what the purpose is since she does not greet patrons upon their entrance. The bar area is... More

This is my second visit with my sister. We had to start with a cup of the seafood bisque. It was lunch time so I followed up with the crab cake sandwich. My sister went all out for the fried seafood platter. Everything was delicious as usual.

Everytime we're in DC we make an effort to have a meal at Crisfield's. It's become one of our all-time favorites. We love the local feel of the place with old beer steins and autographed photos of political and sport figures that cover the walls. We usually see the same waiters every year and love that they remember us. And... More

I was in DC visiting a brother, his wife, and daughter, and knowing I like seafood, they took me to Crisfield’s. As we approached the area where the restaurant is located, we looked for a parking place on the street. Although there are parking garages in the area, my brother said he prefers to park on the street and we... More

I love Crisfields, but something is not right. Prices seems to jump up, cream of seafood soup, does not taste the same, a lot spicier than I remember, had other stuff added that I did not remember being in the soup, soup got darker. Bugs flying (Knatts) Me and my Auntie went and both agreed that It's not the same.... More

I stopped in to Crisfield for lunch recently after being away for a long time. Absolutely the best crab imperial I have ever had. Fully lived up to my fond recollections. I wish I had room and time enough for the oysters on the half shell--those I saw people eating were fabulous. It is still the curiously old-fashioned place, although... More

This is a place to find old-school Maryland seafood. The soft shell crabs are certainly worth making the trip (when in season) and the clam chowder is the bomb! The place is essentially unchanged sine my first visit in the late '60s. No frills, just great food and friendly service!

We were taken to Crisfield by friends who promised us a fabulous meal in an old time atmosphere. Wow! We were blown away by the wonderful meal we all enjoyed. Excellent food and service make the a must when you're in the area.

This restaurant is an old time favorite of mine and my family. Retro decor and long time employees, the menu has been the same for nearly 70 years which lends enormously to it's charm-especially for us DC locals. Don't expect anything fancy or complicated here, nor is there a fine wine list. Go there for a "back in time" experience... More
