5stars-big“Another “safe” and delicious meal from Ropewalk!  Special thanks to Manager Tammy for overseeing everything!  Ropewalk is our “go to” restaurant each trip to OC!  My little one feels like a queen as they always accommodate her allergies with their special training and food allergy protocols.  They also seem to always be able to seat our large groups.  The atmosphere is great and families with young children can sit, talk, enjoy yummy drinks while watching the kids play on the playground in the sand!  Of added benefit…safe gluten free, nut free, egg free and dairy free soft serve ice cream!  Have to admit, my husband and I shared what was left of our daughters cool treat and it was among the best soft serve we had eaten.  This trip, we were afforded the opportunity to meet the owner–a special treat for us as food allergy parents! Super excited to learn of three more locations opening up in the very near future with the same level of staff training/awareness of allergy food prep & serve protocols!  I am thrilled next year we will be able to enjoy their new Bethany Beach location! Everyone left full and very pleased with their meals.  The kids had a chance to play on the playground, take home Frisbees (their dinner plates) and my daughter received a special gift — a beautiful t shirt with the Ropewalk  logo!  Can’t thank everyone, particularly Tammy, enough! We’ll be bringing new crowds with us at different times throughout this summer.  Love Ropewalk!  Keep up the great work!”

I have since been to you restaurant 3 more times-once for dinner and twice for happy hour and have been pleased each time.  The 2 times I went to happy hour I brought some friends–they stated they would be back again as well.”

5stars-big“For the second year in a row, my wife and I and another couple spent Super Bowl weekend in OC, and watched the game at Ropewalk. Had a great time again. Great atmosphere, great food, great specials (cheap wings and Bada Bing shrimp). And for the second year in a row, we had the best bartender in Ocean City, Eric. Can’t say enough about the job he does. The Ropewalk is highly recommended.”

5stars-big“Although we waited an hour for a table (typical OC season) I will say it was worth the wait.  We were seated on the deck by the bay.  Our waiter was great and I’m sorry I don’t recall his name.  Loved, loved, LOVED that bada bing shrimp.  Had the Caesar salad with crab cake and I will say the crab cake was surprisingly delicious.  So many places in Maryland and especially OC claim to have great crab cakes and that’s not the case.  I do recommend them.  Definitely going back in September with my husband.  I give this place 5 YUMS !”

4stars “There was no 4 1/2 star choice,  but that is what I would rate my first time visit.  It would have been a five if there had been seats at the outside tiki bar.  Went to see entertainer John Lamere – – a local favorite – – and was flabbergasted by the venue (compared to when it was Frescos),  Was pleased by the bar service (at both bars), delighted with the food, and pleasantly surprised by the patriotic theme.  Sat outside by the stage area in the Adirondack chairs with my party of four.  The evening dinner crowd (at least in the outside pavilion area) was mostly young families, kids, parents, grandparents.  After a while we moved to the inside bar and ate lite fare, staying until the entertainment ended.  A great night out, and as locals (Ocean Pines) we will be making Ropewalk a regular stop.”
— S. Lind

4stars “Our family of 4 came for a late lunch around 2pm and were seated outdoors under the large structure, we were seated an oversized booth, which gave plenty of room for me and my teenage sons and wife, we really enjoyed the acoustic music that was playing over by the bay and all of us enjoyed our meals. Fish Tacos to Tuna wrap all were hot and ready to consume with plenty of service for water and soda refill.”
— B. Raab, Bel Air, MD

Everything on the menu from the oysters, appetizers to the entries are fantastic. We strongly recommend the Crab Cake Egg Rolls as they were great. The atmosphere is definitely family oriented. The service is top notch. An all around 5 Star experience. Ropewalk will be our regular stop every time we are in Ocean City.”

5stars-big“We came here on Saturday for a bachelorette party with 10 girls. The owner of the bar talked to us and was absolutely wonderful and accommodating. The bar staff outside was fantastic. Although we did not order any food, the drinks and shots were on point. The dynamics of the outside seating with fire pits were stunning. I would love to come back during dinner time and watch the sunset. I am definitely spreading the word about how great this place is. Thank you for allowing us to have an awesome time at your bar!”

5stars-big“Have had a place in OC since 1984, this was the first visit to Ropewalk, it won’t be the last. The parking lot looks busy, we thought the wait would be long. We walked in and were seated immediately, the place is huge. Under a palm tree, in the sand, at a nice picnic table, what is not to like? Service was great! The have bean bag toss and hook and ring game while you wait for dinner to come or before or after, my 12 year old loved it. Big drinks, some served in mini-pitchers, very cool. Food was great! Live band inside, great sunset views as well. Glad we tried it, as I said we will be back, no questions asked!”

5stars-big” We went to the grand opening on August 3rd and saw Ex-Governor Ehrlich.  We had such a great time we came back the next day and spent most of the day at Ropewalk.  We found out about this place after a friend had posted on FB they were there about 2 weeks earlier so we thought we would check it out and I’m so glad we did.  I posted on FB what a great place it is and now we are coming down for Sunfest and we will definitely be going to Ropewalk.  I give you 10 stars.”
