This is a wonderful place with a wine list that is mostly American and with many reasonably price bottles (under $35). No big French wines but plenty of Napa and Sanoma. But the whole show seems to stop at 2010? Wine Spectator last reward 2009. What is going on? Service was great. Ambiance great. Food? You can get duck, this is the eastern shore!

Nice place but a bit pricey for a college town. The fried deviled eggs sounded delicious but when I asked how many came in the order was told 2 eggs, 4 half’s for 10.00??? That was crazy for 4 deviled eggs. I can buy 4 dozen eggs for that. Place wasn’t busy but took a long time for our drink order to come. Wasn’t impressed at all.

Excellent place in Salisbury Md to have dinner this was the first time my food ( Halibut) came out way over cooked I should have sent it back as it ruined my meal but the bread roll and dipping oil made up for it i will go again as this is usually a great restaurant to eat at

Great jambalaya and French onion soup. Returned for the crispy deviled eggs, so good I could eat 3 plates of them easily. Steak well prepared, good mashed potatoes & macaroni and cheese. Wine a little pricey but excellent tasting.

We sat outside and enjoyed the wonderful ambience of being in the cool Fall weather. The service was a bit slow, but not overly so, and very pleasant. The burgers were very good and the shrimp salad on avocado toast was delicious, even if a bit spicy.

I hate to rate it this low but it did take two hours to get dinner. When it arrived, we didn’t think it was ours because the person said they had different entrees than what we ordered. By the time they figured it out, it was ice cold. I ordered the AGI tuna appetizer and it was the worst tasting AGI tuna I had ever eaten. Otherwise, we really liked the restaurant. We sat outside where it was beautiful and really had fun overall.

Had an early (5:30) dinner on a Friday evening. We were seated indoors, in a secluded booth opposite a wall of wine racks. The food was somewhat pricey, but delicious. I had seafood in a curry sauce, my husband had seafood alfredo. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly, and attentive without being bothersome. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and, when we are in the Salisbury area again, we will be back.

Always consistently good. Service can be a bit off at times. Sometimes great sometimes slow. This time they sort of forgot us for a while until asked desk what happened and for some reason no server was assigned.

We decided to go on an impromptu date night while our daughter was at a party with friends. The Market Street Inn was close by, so we decided to make reservations and go. It was our second time at this restaurant.
The food we ordered was fantastic; I had the scallop special, and my wife had curry shrimp and scallops. We both commented on how fresh the scallops were on both of our plates-later on the waiter came and told us that they were shucking the scallops to order, and they had just been brought in on the boat from Ocean City a few hours ago. You could absolutely taste the freshness in all of the food that was prepared.

Great food! We have eaten here often. Very consistent. If being hyper critical, and as a beer fan, would request an expanded draft selection. But you can't beat their beer descriptions!!!

Great food paired with great service. They were kind to allow for a long business discussion. I appreciated the fact there wasn’t a rush to clear our table. Loved my shrimp and avocado toasts!

Very,very good food. The crab cake is out of this world...all crab, no filler. The creamy crab dip appetizer is excellent; the bread is a real treat. Lively outdoor dining spot on a perfect weather evening!

I ordered one of the specials- the scallops- which were very good. I requested a certain table and we were accommodated very graciously. Our server was a little slow but we were doing alot of chatting so it was ok but otherwise i would have been annoyed.
I have found Market Street to have good days and bad days or should i say good entrees and not so good entrees so I am grateful when i have a good meal but don't feel i can consistently have a good meal

They were able to accommodate our large party. Server was great. Mashed potatoes came out cold but we didn’t make a big issue out of it. Food was good but overpriced. The price was what I would expect from a bigger city...not Salisbury MD...but I guess they are going to charge more for tourists.

We have eaten here for years. I would highly recommend. Service and food are great. I love the cosy, rustic atmosphere. The only caveat is that if you are there for a peaceful dinner, you would not want a table near the bar area. The long rectangular dining area along the windows picks up bar noise. Our table was at the other end so we were not bothered most of the time.

The restaurant was practically empty yet we were seating in the dining room area, yet yeh sat a large party right next to us so we could hardly hear ourselves talk.
The staff was slow and inattentive.
I have dined there several times but this experience was particularly poor.

Loved the food and the service! I made the reservation for 3pm for a nice Christmas Eve dinner for the family but didn't realize that the dinner menu started at 4pm. However, when we arrived the hostess asked us if we knew about the timing and did offer to check with the chef to see if we could order from the special Christmas eve dinner menu. Luckily we were able to order from the dinner menu and loved everything we ordered. Crab dip with pull apart bread, home made chips with vinegar for apps, I had the shrimp and crab risotto, my husband has the rockfish with lumpcrab and rice, the kids had crab cakes and a chicken caesar salad. Soooo Yummy!!

In terms of nice restaurants in Salisbury this is one of the two available. (there is a third, but it is overpriced and over celebrated) The local clientele has caused it to make some changes over the years. The bar scene has migrated into the restaurant area. More TVs on the wall. However, it is better than a sports bar with a menu that is creative and always good. The service here is still very good. I suspect they do some training. Really never had bad service here. If you want a nice quiet meal there is a section that is away from the bar and TVs near the fireplace. Request that area when you make your reservation for those special quiet meals. The food remains top notch. The menu changes and I always have to decide between options. There are options for what would be considered bar food, but you can get the full menu in both the bar area and the restaurant area. Come summertime the large deck area opens up on the water. There, you can get "Free Beer Tomorrow".
