Stoped in for dinner based on the reviews. The ruby reds are huge and delicious. Crab cakes were good, and the Cajun oysters were yummy.

Really good place to eat if you aren’t looking for the typical fried seafood platters. I love their baked oysters and steamed crab legs. Laid back atmosphere, really good food.

I had the crab sandwich and friends had the taco special. Service was fine but the food was poor. My crab tasted like fish as did my friends chicken tacos. My potato salad was good so I ate that and left the sandwich. Next to...More
