I wish I could eat seafood every meal, and I would eat every meal at this place if I lived in the area.
Not much to say besides extremely friendly service, great location (right by the water), and no nonsense quality seafood! Come here for a dozen crabs and their fried seafood platter and you won't leave disappointed. The boiled crabs were seasoned well and the fried seafood platter allows you to sample much of the sea in its best form - fried!
Will be looking to return on future trips.
I shared the seafood platter with another person and it wasn't that much food. It had 4 fried shrimp, 3 fried scallops, 2 fried oysters, 1 soft shell crab, 3 crab balls, 4 corn fritters, and 1 fried grouper fillet. It was all fried so it all tasted the same. One of the items on the platter were mashed together: shrimp and crab ball. It didn't taste fresh either. It tasted like it was kept in the freezer then thawed then fried. It may not be in season yet but it wasn't worth the $32 for that platter. Our server was very polite though. The stars must be from the crabs when in season from locals so we'll try this place again when it's crab season.
1 hour waiting for a seafood platter in a seafood restaurant? The wait staff is weak in the table attentiveness. The portions were small. If you order scallops, you won't get a whole one because they cut them in quarters. Crabcakes are more filler than meat. This is but one review but its a surety i will NOT be back! I am extremely disappointed! Fix the problem!
Incredible view today! Crabcake sandwich was awesome as usual!! Learned that the patriarch of the Copsey family died on November 7 at 99 years old; leaving behind a beautiful family and Drift Inn, Captain Leonard's, and Sandgates Inn in his family's hand at the time of his death. A wonderful tribute to his and his family's hard work and the love that they have shared with the Saint Mary's County community! May God bless the Copsey's and Leonard!
This is my favorite place to relax by the water and eat crabs. Service is always the best. Their crabs are always great. We love their hush puppies and coleslaw also.
