Fodor's Review

Jimmy Cantler, a native Marylander who worked as a waterman on the Chesapeake Bay, founded this local institution 40 years ago. The no-nonsense interior has nautical items laminated beneath tabletops, and steamed mussels, clams, and shrimp as well as Maryland vegetable crab soup, seafood sandwiches, oysters, crab cakes, and numerous fin fish are served on disposable dinnerware; if you order steamed crabs, they'll come served atop a "tablecloth" of brown paper. Water-view

outdoor dining is available seasonally, and boat owners can tie up at the dock; there's limited free parking during the busy summer season so be prepared to wait a bit.
