Fine Dining Crab and Seafood Restaurant with a Great Water View
The Wellwood Club offers a delicious dining experience for every taste with a casual fare menu (including nightly specials) as well as a fine dining menu to rival none. In addition, we cater private parties at The Wellwood or at your place. View our events calendar to make plans with family and friends.

Don't miss The River Shack, where you can put your toes in the sand at the Shack beach. The River Shack has been cheerfully described as the 'ideal hidden local spot' and a 'crab hunter's dream come true'. It is open during the warmer months, May through October. The River Shack is our 'traditional Maryland Crab House atmosphere' featuring steamed crab specials and famous fried chicken. It's a great place when you want a delicious meal without the fine dining setting. Watch for our "All You Can Eat" crab specials!
