about us

Awful Arthur's has been serving the freshest seafood since 1975. If you like raw or steamed seafood, you will love their authentic oyster bar, Ole Pap's Oyster Bar, serving more than nine varieties of oysters, plus clams, shrimp, mussels, crab legs, crawfish and their famous steamed seafood platter. Awful Arthur’s offers indoor and outdoor seating, and two additional rooms for small groups. Catering, on and off premises, is available, and hosting oyster roasts is their specialty. Dine fireside in the cooler months, or enjoy a meal outdoors during warmer weather. Awful Arthur's is located in the heart of downtown historic St. Michaels, a short stroll from the harbor.
