Drift Inn is a dive crab shack. They used to (or still might) serve their $35.00 seafood platter on a Styrofoam plate. Cheap cheap cheap. I haven't been back in over a decadeSeabreeze is the epitome of the dive crab shack.
I would also note that for being side by side, Seabreeze is always dominating them in terms of "being busy".
I think there is a difference between a "seafood" restaurant and a "crabhouse". You go to a seafood restaurant to order stuffed shrimp or crab imperial or stuffed flounder, etc. If you want steamed crabs, you go to a crabhouse, thats their specialty! We've never been disappointed in the crabs we got from Drift Inn. just a side note, its the oldest crabhouse in St. Mary's.Drift Inn is a dive crab shack.

Seabreeze dominates Sandgates because of the tiki shack out back and the owners of Sandgates aren't that popular with the community.
While I realize it's a "seafood" place, it's not what I associate with southern Maryland seafood. More appropriately, it's not in line with the two options the OP offered. And every time Jerry's comes up, I say the same thing ....... it's very expensive for what it is. Yes, it's good. And I don't have a problem paying a premium for quality. But I walk out of there every time making the "ouch" face after paying the bill and often choose others place when Jerry's gets offered up now-a-days. Hate saying that too as I have been a customer there dating back to his original location in Seabrook (even hosted my wedding rehearsal dinner there nearly 15 years ago). Heck, I'm less than a mile away as the crow flies from their PF location and haven't been in two years I'd bet.Surprised not one person has mentioned Jerry's Place in Prince Frederick.
