    Lizzie’s is a great place to relax and dine. Family run restaurant and the food is delicious. Great shabby chic decor. Cathy, Neil and Matt are personable and welcoming. It is like going to a friends house for dinner. We go there every time we are at the beach.

    This was my second time here and I was disappointed. My rib Eye was overcooked. The waiter did ask if I wanted to send it back, but I am Leary about sending food back. My friends dinner was good. However, it was my birthday and no one acknowledged it, even though I said it was a birthday when I booked, so I was a little disappointed.

    Lizzie's Cafe & Bistro 142nd St.Responded on October 15, 2019

    Maria, we're very sorry to see this review. We certainly would not consider this our standard for service. We're happy to always remake food orders that are unsatisfactory to our guests. As to not acknowledge your birthday, this is a tremendous oversight, and we sincerely apologize, as we take great pride in honoring our birthday guests who choose Lizzie's for their special occasions. We hope you can find it in your heart to dine with us again in the future. Sincerely, Matt

    Our experience was great! Cathie welcomed us as if this were her home and made us comfortable. Matt was very knowledgeable and gave us great advice on wine and food. The bread was delicious, accompanied with an order of lobster Mac and cheese. This was followed by specials of the evening , the Bronzino and Rib eye steak, which we shared. Both were very good, and we especially enjoyed the flavorful way the Bronzino was prepared. We had a very nice Pinot Noir recommended by Matt that took full advantage of their half off First bottle Saturdays. At the end we had espresso, and tea and the double chocolate chip cookie sundae. Throughout dinner Matt and Cathie shared tidbits of information about their family’s restaurant. We would enjoy seeing more information about the family and how Lizzie’s came to be on their website. This is a great find for dinner and we will return next time we are in Ocean City, if not before for breakfast! We may stop by for the lobster roll that we’ve heard so much of.

    Food was uneven- crab soup was average- slightly overpriced for amount received- crab cakes were excellent- possibly best in Ocean City- Filet Bernaise was poor- beef tasted as if it were previously frozen- bernaise sauce was good but not enough for the dish- the loose crabmeat with the dish was plentiful but dry- price for the filet dish was high & not worth it - cute place- good ambiance but came away disappointed

The staff is lovely, and even the background music is good. Lizzie’s has become a must-have dinner reservation whenever we’re in Ocean City.

    We were very impressed with the menu, food quality, and service. We went back two more times, once more for breakfast and then dinner. Best steak I’ve ever had, and the lobster roll was amazing. The maple bacon pecan pancakes were excellent. And the sticky bun and chocolate cake....oh my. I love that this is family owned business and it was great meeting the owners. We will definitely go back next time we visit Ocean City.

    They ran out of branzino for our 7:15 pm dinner reservation. Then they overcooked our medium steak (brown center) and actually gave it back to us saying it was cooked to temperature. Then they ran out of steaks too. My husband ended up not eating any entree. We had to leave and go elsewhere for his dinner a couple hours later because of the wait to discover all this. We were disappointed at the lack of customer service.

    Wonderful evening with my wife in a one of a kind OCMD restaurant. Food was great. Service was attentive in this special family-run restaurant. For those who are unfamiliar with Lizzie’s, expect a leisurely evening in a gastro pub type setting. And plan to get a babysitter, as unlike most other OCMD restaurants Lizzie’s caters to an adult dining experience. And as such, does not have a kid’s menu.

A pretty restaurant with a bar area. They serve Breakfast, lunch and dinner. My husband had the crab cakes which he said were great, and he would come back for more. I had the crab imperial which I also enjoyed. Looking forward to a return visit.

    Very modest building set slightly back from Coastal Highway between 142nd and 143rd. Nice welcome and excellent service throughout. The kitchen team got a bit ahead of themselves and were ready with our main courses while we were still in middle of starters but that was the only hiccup. Definitely a place for local food lovers - virtually the whole menu has mention of crab, shrimps or salmon which was an issue for my son - dragged along for the evening - he was well-satisfied though with his meatballs, rib-eye steak and cookie /ice-cream/cream dessert. I managed to control myself and had 2 courses - crabcake and lobster roll. I had never tried either thing before and they were both excellent. In addition to the food we had 2 local beers, 2 glasses of decent American Chardonnay and a coke. Bill was $150 plus service. Probably more than I was expecting to pay but all in all a really good meal. I would definitely go back.

    We had a lovely meal here. It's a quaintly decorated cafe with several tables, a nice sized bar and a good menu selection. We had dinner, but cant wait to try a breakfast and lunch here. We tried the appetizer trio meatballs and they were delicious in a marinara sauce. The bacon salad was huge and came with beautiful slices of bacon on it. Enough for 2. Then we split a surf and turf, with a tenderloin and crabcakes. Being an Eastern Shore girl, I'm picky about my crabcakes and it didnt disappoint. My daughter had the steak and brought leftovers home. It was cooked perfectly and came with garlic herb butter, which was enough to also put on the baked potato and asparagus. We both came in hungry and left feeling completely satisfied. I also had 2 splits of Champagne. The bill was reasonable for all we had. The service was top notch. Matt took great care of us! We can't wait to go back. Reservations recommended, and I would've loved to have sat at the bar, but was with my underage daughter. Next time, I'll bring my girlfriends and enjoy more of the wine list.
