Chicken was dry and the seafood was way over cooked! The shrimp, calamari, and scallops were like rubber. I would not recommend this restaurant!
All four diners gave two thumbs up on the dishes we ordered: Chesapeake Bay rockfish (2x), yellow fin tuna, and crab cakes. We were seated by the bar on Friday night, the locals were boisterous, but obviously it’s “their” place to hang out on a Friday night, so a bit noisy. Three before dinner cocktails, bottle of wine, 4 entrees, was $50 per person, so average score on value for money.
Food was delicious. Great service. Love the quiet and pretty ambiance
Our waiter was very friendly, informative and attentive. The food was enjoyed by all 4 in our party. The stuffed flounder was very good as was the salmon and the portions were just right. The warm bourbon pecan pie with ice cream on top was delicious although not 'warm' as advertised. It was too good to send back to ask that they warm it. Could not let it leave the table because it was so good. (smile)
Quiet atmosphere. Food was plentiful and delicious. We went for restaraunt week and received a 3 course meal for only $20. Service was great. I would definitely go back.
Great food, service and atmosphere. Crab cakes are fabulous, as was the she-crab soup.
Our server was great! Food was great as well. Super fast. Great price for restaurant week three course meal.
Awesome. Would go back again and again.
The food was great but the service was a bit slow. There was miscommunication with the wait staff on who was going to our table so we sat for over 15 minutes before anyone came over. There where several large parties that made it very loud.
I really enjoyed it. The atmosphere was good. The staff was very helpful.
Fantastic experience. They accommodated a group of 9 family members arriving separately from Philly, Brooklyn, and Manhattan, aged 6mos to a 92 yo w a walker, for my sister's 60th birthday. All staff were patient and pleasant, especially our server. And the food was superb. Lots of choices. I highly recommend the ahi tuna, crab cakes (no fillers) and coconut pie! Go! Find out for yourself.
Our server, Andea (?) was awesome. Delightful and very accommodating of food allergy questions. Food was excellent - the she-crab soup remains one of Old Town’s signature appetizers. Monkfish risotto, tripe Norfolk, crusted salmon, all excellent. We’ve been coming here for years and it remains our go-to when guests want seafood. We took a guest from overseas and she said it was the best seafood she has had in the US.
Our 2 couples really enjoyed the warm atmosphere and cozy ambience of The Wharf on a cold early February evening. We've been to this restaurant several times in the past and it is on our 'regulars' list but for the first time we were seated upstairs where the atmosphere and views of King Street, with the lighted street trees sparkling outside the windows and we enjoyed what is obviously an updated scene up there. The food is always good, whether a seafood specialty or the filets, and this evening was another notch in a well adorned belt. The shrimp and linguini are an especially wonderful dish. Just right!
Of course, we'll be back!
The food was excellent. The fish was very fresh, presentation was very nice with wonderful service. We sat upstairs which was much more quiet where you could have a nice relaxing dinner. I highly recommend this restaurant.
A wonderful experience at The Wharf! I've been wanting to try this restaurant for several years and I was finally able to visit this past weekend for a birthday lunch. Wow! Old world charm and historic interior. Staff was very courteous and professional and welcoming! Our server, Julianna was excellent! I wish we had servers like her where I live and work! Great food, outstanding menu and selections. I will definitely be back! They do a very nice gesture for a birthday at the end of the meal. Pricey, but worth the visit!
The waitress was very polite and attentive
I have been to the Wharf before. The food is always pretty good, especially if you enjoy seafood. The service, however, I have always had one issue with or another. This time, the waitress just had a bad mood, and seemingly a bad attitude from the beginning of the meal. Not very accommodating to substitutions. Did not know how to properly hand a plate to someone.
The restaurant was quite crowded (Saturday night, restaurant week so no surprise). The noise level was considerably higher than on previous visits, which made conversation difficult. Food was great - as usual- but crowding interfered with table service. Next time we will opt for mid-week.
Excellent crab cakes!
Service was attentive and the food was well prepared. The only drawback was the pacing; our main course was served before we had finished our appetizers.
