This place was an awesome surprise, from a food quality and taste perspective! It was January during Covid in Deep Creek, so not high expectations for much, but we rolled the dice on this place, after we were tired of all the american food restaurants...around here. It was up a desolate road, and the restaurant and parking lot looked pretty beatdown, no other cars. But we had placed a takeout order and I'm picking it up. Inside was cluttered, no one had been served here for a while. But when I brought the food home, WOW! It was delicious! the Ahi was done just right and flavorful, the lobster tails were incredible. Calamari, Wings, Mac n Cheese, all delicious! Highly recommend, don't be put off by appearances!!!More

We were looking for something new (on-line) and stumbled across this small location with outdoor social distancing seating, great views of the lake and good food (just behind/beside he theater) On arrival, we were greeted, ask to sit wherever we wanted (a view) and she...wiped the table down just after we sat on the deck (outdoor heaters were also available, including a gas fireplace). Evelyn treated us nicely as newbies, even met a few regulars talking across the tables way and said Nick had a nice set up (we agreed). My wife's food allergies where taken into account, by asking the chef multiple questions and even got a small taste of a wine she never heard of to try first. We were treated extremely well and recommend this place to our friends whoms house we borrowed for the weekendMore

Went here after hiking. Only outdoor seating available because of COVID, but that was fine. Recommend a reservation, though, as there is limited outdoor seating available. Food was just okay. I ordered a burger cooked medium. It came out well done. Fries were skinny (I...like that!) and quite good. Wife was excited about fish tacos (blackened mahi on corn tortillas --- they had flour tortillas too but she's gluten-free). They came out deconstructed -- she had to build the taco herself. The mahi was overcooked. It came with some questionable-looking slaw (it was brown) and some unappetizing mango salsa. We had higher expectations from a "seafood" restaurant. Service wasn't anything to write home about either. We were sat promptly, but waited for our menus. I asked for ketchup for my burger and fries, and I had to walk inside to get it myself while my overcooked burger and fries were getting cold. All that and there were no more than 10 groups there. Oh, and I had a $10 margarita. Wasn't worth $10. We won't be returning here next time we're in Deep Creek.More

You want amazing food. Well look no further! I spotted this while at the gas station and wondered what was on the hill. So we stopped for dinner to check out the menu. Let’s just say I am so happy we stopped we were not...disappointed at all. The manager came out and talked to us to see how everything went. The mussels, calamari, snow crab legs and fish sandwich were soooo good. My family and I will be going back for more.More

Even in this new normal, Nate and staff make this a must-do outdoors dining experience. Even if you never get to entree, you must have the Thai calamari! Absolutely yum and perfectly, lightly fried. But do get to the entrees - salmon, crab cakes, mahi-mahi...were excellent choices! Gee, crab cakes with a lot of crab, whodathunk?! And Nate knows his wines and offers premium quality. If in or near Deep Creek, check this spot out.More

Got carry out (Coronavirus pandemic) and was simply blown away. The Thai spice calamari was fantastic. My fiance had the seared Ahi and I ordered the crab cake dinner. Hands down the best crab cakes I've ever eaten. No filler - just delicious crab meat...perfectly cooked. The coleslaw is delicious, too, and far from traditional in a good way. Slightly spicy and savory featuring a mix of cabbage and veggies. Hush puppies were great too.More

When in DCL lake fishing and get skunked, try some great Chesapeake Seafood here. Tucked behind the Garrett Cinema is a great small seafood place with experienced staff from a renowned Baltimore Inner Harbor restuarant. Everything you can get near the Bay and some very...creative specials. Go in the warm weather months and dine alfresco with a view of the lake. Fresh herbs grown on site, fresh fish, shrimp and crabs if you plan it right. Happy hour prices are a good reason to go early and get a good table.More

Don't miss this eatery if you're looking for fresh, mouth-watering seafood and friendly service in a casual atmosphere. It's located just a stone's throw from the lake.

It was 10 of us visited a small restaurant Deep Creek Seafood. Don’t let the decoration discourage you. Some of us ordered lobsters tails, some had cluster snow crabs legs, some had crab cakes, fish and chips, grill mahi-mahi, cod fillet, everything was delicious. We...tried each other’s food and loved it. Great service. The owner, Nate, came to say “Hello” and asked everything was okay. It is a hidden gem in Deep Creek Lake area. Would recommend this restaurant.More

This place is really wonderful, the food is amazing. We stop here whenever we are in Deep Creek. It really is a must. This visit we took our adult kids with us and we each tried different menu item. Everyone raved about their meals. I...highly recommend the crab cakes, delectable and they are all crab, very little filling if any. The peel and eat shrimp is wonderful! The kids ordered lobster tail dinner and shrimp po boy sandwiches. Food was awesome, service was good.More

We called ahead for a party of 8. They wrote it down, but the table was not ready when we arrived. They had plenty of room and setup our tables together, so it worked out fine.
