I don't know about dinner, but the prix fix summer lunch (which has been extended from restaurant week) was excellent. My crispy oyster salad and my husband's gazpacho were very good, and my crab cake entree really delicious (his steak was OK). Desserts were also good. My only negative comment is that we had to ask for the summer lunch menu since it was not provided at first, but it was a very satisfying lunch and I would be happy to go back.

I know. Why are you complaining when it's restaurant week? The appetizers were amazing, and that's it. Actually, the best thing we ate were the oysters that we did not order. That is the only reason why we didn't return it. The salmon and palenta were dry. The lobster dinner was disappointing. We didn't even bother with the dessert. I'm pretty sure that the regular menu is good, but I wouldnt go again for restaurant week.

The service was not good. The waiter only came over to us in the beginning and at the end. I could not even find him to ask him for steak sauce. The wine was poor and the food was mediocre.

We ordered the salmon with shrimp & crab on top, a wedge salad with bacon & blue cheese dressing, lobster soup, and the apple cobbler dessert. All of which left a lot to be desired. The fish dishes had no flavor, the lettuce was not crisp and appeared to be old. The cobbler taste like a dieters dessert. Food was overpriced. The waitress forgot to bring us bread after we requested it nor did she check with us after the food was served.

The food was amazing. no question about that. But the service was not so good. The waiters takes their time and dont make an effort to be friendly beyond what's neccessary.

This place is fantastic. Best Crab legs I've eaten. Staff is charismatic and knowledgeable. Great boothes and their bar is a good place to sit and people watch before siiting down for a great meal.

The Mirin glazed Sea Bass was outstanding as was the accompanying shrimp fried rice, which included lobster. Gazpacho was OK and a bit overpriced. Also had the Maryland crab cakes which were good...but the best are still in the Solomons in Maryland.
