Tiny and hot...but cool atmosphere with great, all you can eat crab specials. Be prepared to get messy if you choose the crab! Fun, noisy place that may not look like much, but you'll get a good meal.

Sorry for the late info: Not sure. It's a seafood hut and crabs are their specialty. Crabs, crabs and more crabs. A couple of shrimp dishes and hamburgers for the non-seafood eaters. Wish their menu was more diverse.
