General Info
This place was TERRIBLE. We were there on 5/2/10. There were 6 in our party. We ordered dinners of crab cakes, grilled chicken, bbq shrimp, a seafood platter, and crab balls/shrimp. The crab cakes were dry and had too much filling. The grilled chicken was over cooked and dry. The food all seemed to be either frozen or canned. The only highlight were the two salads that were ordered. The only thing worse than the food was the service. For parties of 6 or more they add a 20% gratuity. If they didn't, our waitress would have been lucky to get 10%. She was more interested in sitting at the bar! Bad food, horrible service and a $229 bill averaging out to $38 a person and we only had soda or tea to drink.....DON'T BOTHER WITH THIS PLACE

This was a Godsend of a place! We loved it. The food was the best. The service was over the top. I had just left another restaurant after 2 minutes of bad service... then I ended up here... where everything was wonderful! This place is on everyone's list because wherever I went people would suggest to go here. So glad we did!




On Sunday, 13 jan, I drove into Chesapeake Beach, arriving tired and hungry. It was a very foggy drizzly 2 hours and all I wanted was a drink and some crabs/seafood! Thought this place would be great and when I walked in there was no one greeting and there are gambling machines everywhere. I looked around because the sign said "hostess will seat you" .... Several female employees came through with rags in their hands and no one said anything. So, I walked further into where people were seated facing a big screen. Awesome, the game was on! The people looked at me, and the employees walked around me and still, they didn't say anything. So, I went to the restroom and came back through the other customers eating and I waited, looked around, waited and still No One said anything!! I left. I dont care how good the food is here. I wouldnt recommend the service. I went to another place and had great food and service and watched the game! I wouldnt give this place a star, but the review wont let me send without it.

The crab here is hella good, it’s worth the price I pay honestly. The staff is really nice and is always very attentive to our table. I have always had a great time and great food!

Set outdoors on the side terrace with a nice view of the canal. People friendly service good. Crabs were outstanding and price was very reasonable.



Abners - the only place for crabs in Southern Marylan

We visit Abner's every year on vacation with our 3 children. The crabs are "the best". The atmosphere is very family friendly. The kids love feeding the ducks on the docks, with the stale bread and/or crackers provided by the waitress staff who are very helpful, even right down to teaching you how to pick a crab!
