Trip Advisor Good service, cute decor

I really enjoy Al's Seafood. The food is very good, crabs are great and the one time they weren't they were very good about resolving. This is our go to crab house! It also has all the "kitchy" baltimore crabhouse decor I love! I would highly recommend.

Trip Advisor Great Seafood

The décor of this place is nothing to brag about. The outside is supposed to resemble a boat with porthole windows, the inside has sloped floor boards and tacky old décor but the food makes up for it. Great cream of crab soup, Caesar salads, snow crab legs, shrimp, crab soup. I would not recommend their crab cakes. Some people love them but I did not like the seasoning at all. The crab imperial was good. I did have an issue once where we had a Groupon or living social type deal which stated it could be used on carry out and when we tried placing a carry out order we were told that it was an error and we could not use the certificate for carry out, that we had to use it for dining in. I thought that was rather poor customer service not to accept the certificate as the rules stated. Parking can be a little scary after dark because there is limited parking right next to the restaurant and if this is filled you have to park next to the motel which is behind the restaurant and walk past the motel to get to the restaurant.

Trip Advisor Great Little Restaurant

I've lived in Essex most of my life and this is the first time eating at this restaurant. It is located at the corner of Eastern Avenue and Stemmers Run Road. It was very cute and clean on the inside. The service was good and the food was delicious. I ordered the Stuffed Orange Roughy and it was broiled to perfection. There were 5 in our party and everyone was pleased with the food they ordered. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Al's Seafood is a great place to eat if you want seafood. We had a group of 12, with ages ranging from toddler to senior citizen. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The crabcakes were some of the best we had ever eaten, and the menu accommodated those who preferred a burger or salad as well. The wait staff was attentive and food was served quickly.

Trip Advisor Nice Restaurant in Essex serving delicious food.

I have been here quite a few times now. The restaurant is a little dark when you first enter, but inviting. Very good food and large portions, reasonably priced, and fast food service. The parking for this restaurant is a little strange, its not directly behind the building. Its a parking lot further down. I would recommend this restaurant for families and couples....delicious food!
