Season starts this Friday 4/23/04. If you are unfortunate enough not to have experienced this place, it is simply the best dockside seafood place in the DC metro area - this includes softshells. About 40 minutes from the intersection of I495 and Rt 5. Only open on Fridays/Saturdays/Sundays. To recap: the best softshells, the best steamed crabs, the best oysters, the best stews, the best hush puppies. The steamed clams, shrimp, etc. are also VERY GOOD. Beer selection is very limited - the high end would be a long neck Budweiser. No wine. Prices are "absurdly low". Ambience/view is unbeatable. If you want to belnd in, then dress down - anything beyond jeans and sneakers would be out of place IMO.
