Crisfield - Restaurants?

Hi,
We will be in Crisfield next Monday. Are there any restaurants people recommend? Looks like a lot are closed on Monday, so we might be out of luck.

Re: Crisfield - Restaurants?

I guess with the recommendations to go to Tangier, there is not much in Crisfield. I will be prepared to cook onboard.

Crisfield is very run down now. Used to be the center for crabs

Their used to be a seafood restaurant called Waterman's Restaurant in the center of town, but I'm not sure if they are still there.

Re: Crisfield - Restaurants?

Crisfield is kind of a dump. Big town, lots of traffic. There was an excellent restaurant a walk from the Marina, first place we heard of Smith Island Cake but I can't recall the name. I think the highlight of Crisfield was the dragonflies, thousands of them.

Re: Crisfield - Restaurants?

Last time we were there it was a freaking ghost town in July. Had a bad home cooked meal at some crappy restaurant in town. Its not on our list to visit again anytime soon. There a fairly large marina there and appeared maybe 1/3 of the slips were filled. We anchored in the harbor near the coast guard station.

If by chance you in the area and decide to head up the Honga. ..give the G3 I think it is...A wide berth...trust me. I noted the shallow depth on active captain

Re: Crisfield - Restaurants?

no votes for sailing to Tangier?
I don't understand, y'all say you like to sail.
Someone asks about a place their heading to.
Almost every response is - the town doesn't offer much -
I suggested sailing to an island where they catch the seafood as well as serve it.not to mention you have to get there by boat, and it appears that nobody wants to sail their boat to that place!
The OP's response was basically - I'll plan on cooking aboard -
Just wondering, Why bother stopping in Crisfield at all?
If you're just out for a sail or even if you're traveling up or down the bay.Crisfield is rather off the path compared to Tangier is.
I'm just wondering, it's your boat and you're the master of such.
Am I missing something?

Re: Crisfield - Restaurants?

I agree with the multiple recommendations of Tangier Island - best soft shell crabs on the Bay, fresh from the peeling pens on the island.
