We decided to go on an impromptu date night while our daughter was at a party with friends. The Market Street Inn was close by, so we decided to make reservations and go. It was our second time at this restaurant.
The food we ordered was fantastic; I had the scallop special, and my wife had curry shrimp and scallops. We both commented on how fresh the scallops were on both of our plates-later on the waiter came and told us that they were shucking the scallops to order, and they had just been brought in on the boat from Ocean City a few hours ago. You could absolutely taste the freshness in all of the food that was prepared.

Great food! We have eaten here often. Very consistent. If being hyper critical, and as a beer fan, would request an expanded draft selection. But you can't beat their beer descriptions!!!

Great food paired with great service. They were kind to allow for a long business discussion. I appreciated the fact there wasn’t a rush to clear our table. Loved my shrimp and avocado toasts!

Very,very good food. The crab cake is out of this world...all crab, no filler. The creamy crab dip appetizer is excellent; the bread is a real treat. Lively outdoor dining spot on a perfect weather evening!

I ordered one of the specials- the scallops- which were very good. I requested a certain table and we were accommodated very graciously. Our server was a little slow but we were doing alot of chatting so it was ok but otherwise i would have been annoyed.
I have found Market Street to have good days and bad days or should i say good entrees and not so good entrees so I am grateful when i have a good meal but don't feel i can consistently have a good meal

They were able to accommodate our large party. Server was great. Mashed potatoes came out cold but we didn’t make a big issue out of it. Food was good but overpriced. The price was what I would expect from a bigger city...not Salisbury MD...but I guess they are going to charge more for tourists.

We have eaten here for years. I would highly recommend. Service and food are great. I love the cosy, rustic atmosphere. The only caveat is that if you are there for a peaceful dinner, you would not want a table near the bar area. The long rectangular dining area along the windows picks up bar noise. Our table was at the other end so we were not bothered most of the time.

The restaurant was practically empty yet we were seating in the dining room area, yet yeh sat a large party right next to us so we could hardly hear ourselves talk.
The staff was slow and inattentive.
I have dined there several times but this experience was particularly poor.

Loved the food and the service! I made the reservation for 3pm for a nice Christmas Eve dinner for the family but didn't realize that the dinner menu started at 4pm. However, when we arrived the hostess asked us if we knew about the timing and did offer to check with the chef to see if we could order from the special Christmas eve dinner menu. Luckily we were able to order from the dinner menu and loved everything we ordered. Crab dip with pull apart bread, home made chips with vinegar for apps, I had the shrimp and crab risotto, my husband has the rockfish with lumpcrab and rice, the kids had crab cakes and a chicken caesar salad. Soooo Yummy!!

In terms of nice restaurants in Salisbury this is one of the two available. (there is a third, but it is overpriced and over celebrated) The local clientele has caused it to make some changes over the years. The bar scene has migrated into the restaurant area. More TVs on the wall. However, it is better than a sports bar with a menu that is creative and always good. The service here is still very good. I suspect they do some training. Really never had bad service here. If you want a nice quiet meal there is a section that is away from the bar and TVs near the fireplace. Request that area when you make your reservation for those special quiet meals. The food remains top notch. The menu changes and I always have to decide between options. There are options for what would be considered bar food, but you can get the full menu in both the bar area and the restaurant area. Come summertime the large deck area opens up on the water. There, you can get "Free Beer Tomorrow".

Really like the new menu items. Very happy to see some updated foods and classics. Not a fan of the booths in the side room. They are very small and do not allow much room for drinks etc, and lord forbid if you are not a "small person"! Drink menu is also awesome!

Started off good with the menu looking very good. Then we ordered. Food was grossly under seasoned. Burger, Mac and cheese (served cold at first) wings all were sub par and needed something added to them. “Jambalaya” was more of a tomato soup, though spicy reminded me more of Manhattan without the clams. Server though friendly, was not attentive. No check back other than to correct the cold food , then no refills on drinks. Place is cool looking and over looking water which is nice but having to pay for parking in addition to an sub par experience it isn’t worth it.

Spending the evening with a relative in from out of state- Way out of state. Requested a TABLE ( got a booth below two big screen tv’s- not distracting at all). Wanted to be in ‘fine dining’ area ended up 3’ from the bar. Drink service was slow to say the least, 2/3 the meals were acceptable 3rd was rough, improper cooking temperature, second time around over done to say the least and the sides were cold at best. The 3rd person had to eat easily 15 minutes after the other 2 were done with no compensation for the inconvenience at all— very disappointed as I picked this as THE PLACE to bring cousin of all the places in salisbury- learned my lesson.

I've had lunch there several times and been quite pleased. Was looking forward to a leisurely and enjoyable lunch of good food. This time the food quality seemed to be not quite up to expectations. I had the jerk chicken sandwich and it was very over seasoned. In addition it was the whole breast flattened out which : 1) left the center connective tissue which is not pleasant to eat, and, 2) was too large for the roll and made easting it a mess. The "beach fries" were not hot and the portion half the size it used to be (I have dreamed of the fries in past years, no more). The service was pleasant but not thoughtful (pools of water formed on the table from the moisture from the drinks glasses but no offer of napkins, etc. was made).

We have been there many times. The service has always been exceptional but really missed the mark this visit. We waited a long time for the bread then got our meal shortly thereafter. Got dessert and the check fairly quickly but the waitress never came back to pick it up. Food was exceptional as always. Not sure what went wrong but we were very disappointed in the service. We come here every time we visit Salisbury. Will try again and hope for a better server.
