Waited 15 minutes b4 we flagged someone to take our order. Then after the gracious guy said he would take care of us and brought us our food, ONLY THEN did a bartender come and ask if we were helped and then had the nerve to come ask if we were OK when our food was complete & ready to pay check. HORRIBLE SERVICE & WE PAID $45 to make a reservation... all the hype for NOTHING

Fun time for Father's day and live music! I didn't realize how far this restaurant was so we ran late on the reservation. We called ahead and the host told us not to worry. We sat inside due to the 95 degree day. There was no airflow inside the restaurant but it wasn't unbearable. The staff was super friendly and attentive. The food was good and my husband was satisfied. He has already recommended Choptank to several friends.

Based on the ads send website, you would think this is a fancy restaurant. However it is Extremely casual. The good was good snd our server Ashley was great. The restaurant needs signs to indicate where the entrance is. We walked around and were totally confused until we asked someone

If you can sit outside early in the evening, the patio is lovely. Otherwise, the vibe inside missed the mark. We were seated near a live band with bongos inside, which is not something we were aware of when we made a reservation. The bathrooms were also not clean which is something I expect for that price point. Our waiters were great though!

The ambiance of this restaurant was very relaxed, giving pool house vibes. We ordered a few of their specialty drinks the Bamboozled & orange crush. I quite appreciated the blueberry additive to my drink not to mention refreshing. The crab, the crab…oh my! It was plentiful. My only suggestion is that it could have used a little more seasoning. Our server was very attentive and hospitable. She was on her sh*t & we were greatly appreciative of her service.

Overall we had a wonderful experience!

I really used love the place but there was no AC and it was hotter inside than it was outside and we were sweating profusely and it was a client dinner so a little embarrassing to say the least.

Second time going in a span of two days, LOVE the mussels and drinks so much I had to go back. The service and attentiveness was outstanding, we had our own waiter but multiple others walked by and asked if we needed anything and were so nice! The outside seating is great PLUS the inside seating so enough room to not be overcrowded and on top of each other! Will definitely be going back to try the crabs 🦀 would definitely recommend.

Great experience here. neat setting right in the middle of Fell's point, but felt relaxed and open. more great food from the Atlas group: oysters, carb soup, crabcakes, and chicken all were really tasty...

The service and food were great. The atmosphere, however, is not suitable for those who want a quiet dinner and the ability to speak to others at the table in a normal speaking voice. THE PLACE IS SUPER LOUD!! I don't think having music is a good idea either, on top of the already over the top noise level.

Service was excellent and the place has a fun, casual Maryland Crab House vibe. The food was OK. My soft crab sandwich was very good, but appetizers were decent at best. Overall an enjoyable experience but a bit on the overpriced side.

Our server was great!
But the atmosphere was way too crazy. We took my mom for her 50th anniversary who just lost her husband and we could not even talk. Way too much going on with noise. I could not even hear the waiter who was great. I think there should be a area where there are younger people and then a seating area for maybe some olderish people. Play music and hang out, but there was way too much going on. We sat at a table next to the bar where there was a group of maybe 22 - 24 year old people and the girl could not even sit straight or keep her stuff hanging on the chair. Her boyfriend needed to keep picking it up multiple times. Food good, but needs to figure out what works for everyone. Maybe keep it as a young establishment.

This is my second time eating here and will continue to return. Love the vibe and food. Nice touch with the love music. Didn't get 5 stars on food as apparently the chef had difficulty cooking steaks to the proper temp.

The ambiance is really great, the menu had good variety and choices, a little expensive but it definitely felt worth it. We sat inside and it was a bit too loud, but we managed. The tables inside are spaced a bit close together considering it’s Covid times, but they have a large outside area for those uncomfortable with being inside.
