Eastern Shore Seafood restaurants en route to O.C.

A friend from Iowa and her boyfriend are on an extended road trip is headed from Ocean City to DC tomorrow evening...he called me from Ocean City today and asked me today for recommendations for good, reasonably priced, casual seafood restaurants (she loves and wants crabs, he is intimidated a bit and would prefer other non-finfish like shrimp, scallops, oysters, etc) that are easily accessible and not more than 5-10 minutes or so off of a direct route back from Assateauge/Ocean City. I really couldn't offer a decent suggestion as most of the places I have been along that route I have never had anything other than crabs, beer, maybe onion rings. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for your help folks.

  1. The usual suspects in Kent Narrows (Fisherman's Inn Crab Deck, Harris Crab House, Angler's, The Narrows etc.) are generally good but can get insanely crowded and are kind of pricey for some people's taste (and for what you get). As an alternative, I like the Kentmorr Restaurant about 5 miles south of the CBB off MD 8. It was voted 2006 Best Family Restaurant by Chesapeake Bay Magazine. Less crowded, good food.
