Located minutes from Chesapeake Bay on the water is One Fish-Two Fish. We offer an alternative to formal dining, it's what we call "fun dining." The atmosphere is "upscale without the uppity." This unique feeling is created by a casual waterfront environment with boat access. The restaurant is centered around the Exhibition Kitchen with panoramic views of the Bay. The menu incorporates a blend of California style with fresh, local seafood. The wine list focuses on "boutique style" wines and is consistently recognized with the Wine Spectator "Award of Excellence." The owners and staff strive to make this venue high energy but still elegant. The only thing we overlook is the water. See you there.

It was my birthday and my husband and 17 yr old daughter and twin 1 yr olds were all part of the party and the waitress did not seem all that interested in celebrating. No personality. Not personable. For the amount we spent we expected much better service.

We decided to give the restaurant a try, having previously been unaware that it was located at a local marina. The fact that they participated in a Groupon promotion contributed to our decision to drive fifty miles, round trip, to dine there. The dining experience was very pleasant, and, ambiance-wise, certainly a notch above the average seafood restaurant. The fresh-baked table bread was a delight! We enjoyed crab bisque, shrimp and grits, and crab cakes. The entrees were perfectly prepared to order and came out promptly. The butterflied shrimp were lightly fried and exquisite, and the grits creamy and delicious; while i found the small crab cake tasty, but, overall, very ordinary. Likewise, the crab bisque was good, but more like a brownish gravy with a very modest amount of crab meat. Truthfully, I have enjoyed far better at other local seafood restaurants. Surprisingly, the hit of the evening for me was dessert - a Ghiradeli brownie with rich toffee chips smothered in chocolate syrup and topped with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. It was more than enough for two to share, and beyond deliciously decadent! Our table service (by Megan, I believe) was flawless. Overall, we enjoyed our meals and the dining experience,
especially watching the fishermen and local pleasure craft boaters return to their slips right outside our window just before sunset on a perfectly gorgeous and unusually warm February day. I think it might have been a wee bit overpriced, given the quality and quantity of food, but i would definitely recommend One Fish Two Fish, and will return for another visit.

The food was average, nothing exciting. Not like it use to be.

Went to restaurant during Restaurant Week. We ordered one meal from the special Prix Fix menu and one from the normal. After the food arrived, I told our waitress Rachel I forgot to tell her we were using Groupon. Rachel, who up to this point had provided amazing service, professionally and thoroughly explained the situation. She informed us that the Groupon could only be applied to regular menu items. I told her no problem, I should have mentioned the Groupon before I ordered. I placed an order for an additional entrée. When it arrived, I tasted it but was too full to finish, so I asked for a box to take the remainder home. The manager, Jenn, confronted us saying the Groupon was only good for eat-in for two or more. I told her I couldn't finish the second entrée from the regular menu, but she continued to chastise us for wanting to use the Groupon. I explained that our Waitress Rachael told us that another entrée must be ordered to utilize the full value of the Groupon. I suggested she separate the meal into two tickets. One for Prix Fix item as a 1-top and the other two entrees as a 2-top to keep her "records" straight. Jenn was very condescending and told us she would "take care of it this time". Well there won't be a next time, so I guess Jenn succeeded in proving her point and letting us know that customer service was not her strongest attribute .... Even though Rachel came over twice and apologized for Jenn's actions, approach and attitude -- I don't think we will be back.

As for the food, it was just Ok. For the price, we expected more quality and serving size

One Fish Two Fish made our daughter's 16th Birthday celebration SO SWEET and memorable! She loved the jumbo fried shrimp dinner, my hubby had the Delicious Rib Eye, our daughter's friend had the Salmon (loved it!), and I had the most amazing crab cake with PERFECT accompaniments!! Also our salads and soup du jour were perfection to begin our celebratory dining! Our waitress was SO professional yet polite and oh so positive and sweet!! We couldn't have asked for a more wonderful way to enjoy our SWEET girl's 16th!! Thank you so much for making it SO very special!! ❌⭕️🙌❤️💯 The King's

The ambiance at One Fish Two Fish is probably what keeps me going back; it’s incredibly peaceful on the water. I had the mahi mahi special this time and wasn’t overly impressed, it was over cooked which really kills a good piece of mahi mahi. My friend had the rare ahi tuna dish and it was phenomenal!! Kinda made me wish I’d gotten the tuna also. The accompanying vegetables with both plates were perfectly cooked and complementary.

Highly recommend and I’ll be back. :)
