The crab cake was out of this world ...the best one ever. Fine but friendly service. It was just right for our first stop from New Jersey to Ocean City, MD.

For a place that looks a little like a hole-in-the-wall, the food is amazing! And it is much nicer than it looks from a drive-by. My husband and I ate there about 5 years ago and took friends the other day when we were going...More

The reviews on the crab cakes are accurate, though, unfortunately, I ordered the medium rare "slow cooked" beef sandwich. Just the ice cold meat inside a bun. Our waitress was useless. I had to request horse radish. No pickle as advertised. After a beer, I...More

I have had crab cakes from Marilyn Washington New Jersey Virginia and New York. These have the best taste and large lump crab meat with no filler. They have a seaweed salad that is excellent as well. Lively bar with quality eats.

I can't recall, but this time of year, I'd bet they do. Wouldn't wait til September since July and August are prime time for blue claws. As the air chills, crabs move further offshore and to warmer water. Enjoy one for me!
