I came to the beach in search of crab legs and was not disappointed. While most of the seafood buffets on the beach were closed for the season until March Dirty Dick's was able to satisfy my seafood craving and at a reasonable price. The waiter kept a close eye on my pace and refreshed as necessary.

You will always get your money's worth here at Dirty Dick's. The only thing they lack is prompt service but this is overridden by their food and their prices. We always get here at least once on each of our visits. If you have hungry kids and or friends, come here to satisfy their hunger for "GOOD" seafood that is... More

If you are looking for steamed shrimp this is your place. Some places down here only have shrimp that are chilled, not this place.

I've been here several times and it's always a hit or miss. This time was a huge miss!!! There were 5 of us eating and not one of us enjoyed our food. We waited an hour and fifteen minutes on it, and it was cold! The manager did not charge us because we did not eat it but he sure... More

The wait for seating early on a Friday night was forever long. Once the food arrived it was OK but not particularly exceptional. The price was high, food quality average and service was average. Bill for family of 5 was 122.00.

Because I am allergic to it. Sometimes it is hard to find a place that serves alternatives to sea food. Everyone else had fabulous seafood while I ate a very tasty chicken and pasta meal.

Description
We strive for wholesome, fresh made food. All of our fish are fresh, our shrimp are wild-caught domestic & our crab is fresh blue crab ( not Asian blue swimming crab ). The crab list here is the largest variety around to include Blue Crab , Alaskan King Crab, Snow Crab, Dungeness Crab and Jonah Crab. Crawfish is offered seasonally. We present ourselves as "Seafood with a New Orleans Accent" with nuances of Chesapeake Bay. Since we are originally from New Orleans, we also have entrees like Shrimp Etoufee and other Cajun/Creole delicacies. Our lunch specials start at $7.99 daily.
