Food is good, service was good, decent price. But what's the point of a reservation if it still takes 30-45 minutes to get seated once you arrive?

The food is Expensive and did not taste good. The only thing that was good was the cream of crab soup. My husband got the captain seafood platter. He said it was lowsy. He got sick after eating it.

We had a new server who was trying his best. We ordered 2 Halibut dinners, one with sautéed spinach and the potatoes, one with just the sautéed spinach. Also a Conrad salad, which came with dinner instead an appetizer. The one dinner came as ordered. The other came with a tiny piece of over cooked fish and the root vegetables and beet purée. The mgr on duty quickly took the dinner back. The fish was tasteless and spinach was over salted. My friend said the potatoes were salty as well. I wish I could say at least my grapefruit crush was good but I cannot.

Bad start considering we were seated 15 minutes past our reservation time, but it was Good Friday at a seafood restaurant so they get a pass. Our server James was great our food was great as always.and ended up as another great meal and drinks at Conrad’s our favorite place.

Our server Rhonda was very attentive and personable. We saw the busser and manager make several sweeps around the dining area while we were there to ensure things were running smoothly. The fried crab balls were outstanding. We tried the pork belly sliders for the first time and although they were flavorful, I personally just don't care for pork belly. The XL and Jumbo steamed crabs were fantastic. Packed full and sweet. Overall we enjoyed a great meal and staff made us feel welcomed. Our first time at this location, and now that we know they're top notch, it'll be a frequent go to for us.

Our server was great and so was the young man who walked around greeting the guests (I assume he was the manager). The food was good as were the crabs. We were there early so the atmosphere was pretty quiet with a steady stream of customers. The only thing I would suggest is to train the staff at the reception area. When we left, there were 3 or 4 staff at the reception area and none of them said thank you, have a good day...nothing.

Calamari was hot and crisp and came with 2 sauces. Maryland crab soup chunky with fresh vegetables and a spicy broth. Conrad salad was fresh and large portion. Iced tea was filled regularly by our server. I'm glad we sat in the corner because it was a little loud and we were there for the seafood not to look at all the TVs.

Server was extremely friendly. Food was very good. We were hoping for steamed crabs which they didn’t have. However, the website did advise to call ahead about steamed crabs before coming. I didn’t so I don’t hold that against them but would advise you to call if that is what you are going for.

Great surprise. The food and service was far beyond my expectations. I rarely like to celebrate my special occasions in a casual restaurant. But the presentation of the food, the quality and freshness was that of a 5 star upscale restaurant. Our server, Zach was the final piece of making last night’s dinner absolutely amazing. We didn’t want to leave he was so personable!

Everything was great. Only issue was it was a little busy and we had to ask for drinks more thank once, but the other bartender heard and got it straightened out. All 3 of the dishes that came out with broccolini had to be sent back due to the broccoli being ice cold the other parts of the dish were hot so it was obvious that the broccolini had been sitting there a minute. I had to find someone to take this back. This was taken care of and brought back out. This would not prevent us from returning just something to be aware of since due to us waiting we could not enjoy this with our food.

If you’re looking for great crab cakes this is where to come! We’re picky and serious about our crab cakes and these never disappoint. Steaks are fantastic. We’ve ordered off of the specials menu before and it’s amazing. Salads and sides are fresh and seasonal! Service is always outstanding never have had a bad experience.

We went to Conrad’s for crabs on a Sunday evening, I can honestly say I was very disappointed. EXTREMELY small crabs and we ordered LARGE! When we complained the manager came out with a measuring tape to measure our crabs and a few did not come out to be large crabs. I will not return because the customer service level was unacceptable.

Food is innovative and excellent. Some really special entrees on the menu, presentation is fantastic. Had the texas rubbed tuna cooked rare, served with wilted spinach and root vegetable hash with chorizo. Who else is putting this on the menu?? Wife had the salmon wellington with creamed spinach and au gratin potatoes. Excellent dish and presentation. I can't complement the food enough. Always a great meal. Prices are reasonable.

We made a reservation for 6:30 pm for the outdoor dinning and It was confirmed, but when we got there we were told it’s first available table and hostess could not tell us how long we would need to wait. We left and went to another restaurant close by.

Conrads has definitely has their business interrupted by the COVID crisis, as traffic on a Monday night was light, even for Trivia night. We used to pre-COVID and the crowd was better, but... One of the reasons for light traffic is some of the menu items are a little pricey for a pub atmosphere. It's hard to pay over $25 for a menu item in a bar. There are many fine-dining choices in the area that are more competitive. More choices of appetizers would help...

Another suggestion would be to do an all-you-can-eat crab special in-season. They do have a crab feast for 2 on the menu, but a dozen small crabs for 2 people is hardly a feast for $40, especially in September/October when live crabs are selling for $10/dozen on the street. All in all, they have good food, decent service. Just need to fine-tune the menu and ad some ambiance.

Server was non attentive. After he took the initial drink order, he did not return for 15 min to take dinner order. He did not return to the table while we were eating. My wife flagged him down for the check. It took him another 10 min to bring the check to the table. He left after dropping it off and did not return for 10 more minutes. He did take credit card and returned immediately with the receipt to sign. He never checked to see if we needed refills or additional items. The restaurant was not very busy. The server would disappear into the kitchen, wait station or the seating behind the bar for long periods of time. The food was very good and the atmosphere is what we expected. Shame the server did not have the ability to perform his job adequately. We are frequent dinners of Conrad's, but we may think twice about returning anytime soon.
