Me and my friends found this place after a friend told us about it. We stopped by on the way to the Salisbury Mall. Could not believe a place this great is hidden in the little town of Delmar. Thank goodness for the billboard with directions! We waited a few minutes, sat down and ordered and all our appetizers and crabs came right out! We paid less for the all you can eat with chicken, corn, hush puppies, other items and ALL YOU CAN EAT crabs than it cost us for a dozen crabs to go the week before at the beach! This place is for serious eating! Had GREAT crabs, cool music, and the whole place was just a great setting. From the time we got there till we left, everyone was nice, including other customers! A+++ We will definately be back.
I'm sorry the only other review was so terrible and if it happened that way, it was inexcusable for such a big restaurant to treat anybody so awfully-in fact it sounds like it began badly and went from bad to worse. No matter how big you are you should always treat customers with respect-word gets around.
However, i have eaten there several times and the food was great. It is crowded, fast paced and rather expensive (isn't every seafood place?) However when I was there the food was wonderful-they served fried chicken appetizers which were so good, I could have just eaten them as a main course-it was the breading recipe which was out of this world. The waitresses are no-nonsense and busy so if you are looking for a leisurely dinner with candlelight, forget it. I have not been there for three years so it might have changed but I am going tonight and if it is not good, I'll say so. I've come to visit Maryland all the way form Washington state and one thing I have thought alot abt was the good food at the Old Mill in Delaware and the Red Sea Ethiopian restaurant on 17th St. in DC and they were 2 places I wanted to hit once more.
Went there today and had a horrible experience, the waitress, Leslie had an attitude because I asked about sharing some crab with my toddler and when she said there was a "no sharing" policy I just ordered her a side of fries and decided not to eat myself...so when she brought out my friend and her children's food first, she made it a point to place their food on their side of the table and when she told them what each entree was she made sure to say that it was "their food" and as she began to walk away, she turned around, pointed at us and said "their food will be out shortly" she did not even make eye contact with us...I felt extremely disrespected and immediately got up to talk to a manager. He then went to retrieve her, when I also believe she told him whatever her problem was. They both came back out and he asked for $10 to cover the lemonades we ordered and when my friend began to count the money, Leslie stood over her to make sure that it was enough... the manager nor Leslie even apologized or tried to correct the situation...so of course we did not stay or eat...they seemed to have the attitude as if we are just small fish in the sea and they get enough buisness that we don't matter...so I will NEVER go there again and I feel that REEL FRESH in Dover has much better food, appearance, no wait and way better customer service...
