Passed this place on an unplanned trip to the beach. Checked reviews on my phone. Many said service was good, so decided to try it. Located right on the Potomac River. Immediately given a giant basket of piping hot hush puppies. Yum!! Waitress was quite...More

Great location for this clean and efficient family-operated restaurant with a view of the Potomac River just outside. Before you’ve unzipped your jacket, a basket of piping hot hush puppies lands on your table which never disappoints. They offer a nice but very small wine...More

No better restaurant for seafood meals. I often take company here and they always rave about the excellent food quality and taste. This is a family-owned restaurant with an excellent reputation that has been in business for many years. The waiters are friendly, efficient, and...More

Remembered going to Wilkerson's as a child--heard their ads on the radio and we decided to drive down for the weekend seafood buffet. Fresh basket of delicious hush puppies started us off. We arrived early and had our pick of the items as they were...More

Because it is the closest seafood restaurant to us, we have given Wilkerson's several chances. Their buffet is not very appetizing, and is very limited, especially for the price. The best meal we had there was not from the buffet, but there are other restaurants...More
