Food was good, location is great especially on a nice day.
Only down fall was the service. Waitress we had was next to horrible. She took about 20 minutes to come over and greet us. She took drink orders and never brought us any of them (or water). I had to go over to an outdoor cart and ask another waiter to poor us some water cups. She took our initial food order, then about 20 minutes later she came back asking us what we ordered again... then said she'll go "now" put in the order???... and still no drinks, even though we asked again for them.

Then about 15 minutes later the food finally came out! It was good, but in all honesty everyone was hangry. So just to have something was win at that point. We also had to ask a 3rd time for our drinks as we got our food, she then brought them.

All in all the place is cool, food was good, nice outdoor area... the service though... ugh

Food was decent, but nothing to write home about. The venue itself is beautiful, and really possesses the spirit of Baltimore. Would go again, but wish for better food. The staff is also nice.

This was our first time at The Choptank and it was sooo delicious! We had to sit inside because it was cold but the outside looks like a great space to hang out. We tried the everything seasoned monkey pretzel bread, oysters Rockefeller, tuna poke, soft shell crab platter and the spicy chicken sandwich. We regret not staying for dessert! One of many reasons to go back!

Service was good at the bar. East coast oysters were excellent. Crab dip is a must. I will try the Maryland crab soup on the next visit.

I visited Choptank recently and was looking forward to trying different menu items. After placing our order, the waiter came back to the table to inform us they were out of 75% of the items we ordered, including the crab dip, wings, Brussel sprouts, ingredients for drinks, etc.

I ordered the crab soup which was delicious but would have liked the option to try other items, especially because I drove 30 minutes to visit.

Delicious food, even for the members of our group that don't like seafood. It's nice to be able to choose between eating inside and outside as well.

Good food, however, very very commercial, you do not feel welcome, they just serve you food and drinks in plastic cups.

The food was over salted and not worth the amount paid. It was almost too loud to hear your date. The table next to us asked for straws and the food runner brought the whole bin of unwrapped straws for him to choose from. People were standing up and walking around without masks on. The outside fire was the only enjoyable moment, as we walk through to the inside.

Our visit to the Choptank was exceptional and very enjoyable! We felt very safe with their Covid protocol in place, and you really can't beat the ambiance with their fun outdoor dining options! Food was delicious (crab dip & crab cakes are amazing!), service was stellar (both our server Sean, and the manager Jason), and we truly enjoyed our dining out experience!

The outdoor patio is beautiful. There is a separate bar for the outdoor area which I thought was awesome. So you can sit at the outdoor bar if you want. There are also heaters at each outdoor table and a cute fire pit. The food was great. Not super expensive and the green tea crush drink was so good. The noise level was loud but otherwise everything was absolutely great.
