Food was OK. My wife and I shared the huge fried seafood platter. It was better than Long Johns. Waiter kept calling me Buddy, which I think is disrespectful. Won't be going back.

Get out your secret stash of money! Super expensive meals. However it was the best seafood I have ever had. The alligator tail appetizer was amazing. I would have never thought I would like it so well!

When we arrived, half the restaurant was empty yet we were told a 20 minute wait. So we finally sit, in a cramped table in the corner when plenty of other tables were available. When I mentioned how cramped I was the polite waiter confirmed, yea it is kinda cramped here. Conversation over and request for drinks issued. Food was... More

This place has food and drinks that are very delicious. But bring your appetite because the servings are man sized and will bring you to your knees!

The food offered at Dirty Dicks is definitely cookie cutter. The softshell crap was overcooked and the waiter needed a lot more training (Joe).

The good- the wait wasn't long but we went early. The bad- the prices are crazy. There were 5 of us and the bill was 200 dollars and one of those was a kids meal. The crab was pretty good, the shrimp was so salty I couldn't eat it.

Let me just state that this is the most expensive place of its kind to eat. Our bill for 1 appetizer, two kids entrees, two entrees, 1 mixed drink, and 3 sweet teas was $110. While the food was very good, it was a little overpriced. My husband got all you can eat crab legs for $30 but it was... More

The food was good, but WAY over priced. Our waiter tried hard, but messed up the order and our checks. I wasn't impressed.

I had to go here just because of the silly name! Grab a tee shirt on the way out. They have a little souvenir store set up. Anyway, the food didn't take too long, and there weren't many people there, so it was fairly quiet. The lobster ravioli were pretty good, but nothing to rave about. I think most of... More

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.
