Captain Mo's is my favorite place to buy crabs! I get the Large/Jumbo males which are a little pricey, but are SOOOOO WORTH IT!! When I said large....... the crabs are always good full heavy crabs. It's a 40 minute ride for me, but AGAIN soooo worth it. I always call ahead to reserve my order because as SOON as their doors open the place is CROWDED!! On one visit I had to wait a little longer than usual and I got a pound of jumbo shrimp for the wait. AGAIN ..... worth it. Someone complained about the flies.... this is not a sit down restaurant, it's a grab and go crab shack. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. If you call ahead or be there as soon as they open you will not be disappointed.
The little red head young lady with the glasses that works at the register is very rude and does not care or respect the customers.When I walked in she was being loud and obnoxious flirting with a man at the register and showing him pics in her phone. I called my order in over the phone 2 hours before I arrived and after I got all the way down there (I live 25 miles away) she told me the debt machine was not working!! When I told her she should be telling every customer the machine is down every time someone called in a order she told me she stopped telling customers over a month ago which sounded really stupid as if the same customers come in everyday. With the business being self - owned the little girl thinks she can treat customers rudely
My second time this year getting crabs from Captain Mo's and they have been really good. This time I went with the large, they were nice and heavy and the meat was really flavorful. Their prices are always comparable to other crab spots in the area. I called ahead to place my order and they were ready for pick-up on time. This is a pretty popular spot in Southern MD, so you definitely want to get your orders in early on the weekends and the holidays; they sell out fast. I wouldn't suggest getting the steamed shrimp here. I've had them once, not good. Pre-cooked, small, no flavor. Stick with the crabs, and you are sure to enjoy.
Martini's was absolutely amazing! The only place in Charles County where everything was DELICIOUS from appetizer to desert! its a real diamond in the rough!
Come for the live music not the lobster special. Price is attractive but you get what you pay for; little. The corn that comes with the lobster special is mushy, like most frozen corn. The smashed potatoes would be good alone. However, the sides are served on the same plate with the water-filled lobster. So after you crack open the lobster the excess water pools in the plate with your potatoes. Now you have watery potatoes. Good restaurants serve the sides on separate small dishes to preclude this. Please don't even expect a small fork to help you clean the lobster. Not happening. And you better save all the utensil you get. No separate salad fork. No additional paper napkins with this naturally messy entree. No disposable hand wipes. My lobster was stringy and tough. But I got what I paid for @ $14.95. LITTLE. Lower your expectations and you may enjoy the experience. Me, I prefer to switch where I eat and spend more for more.
