We found this place on the internet and it was a great decision! The food and service was perfect! Great fried shrimp, hush puppies at a fair price. We will make this a regular stop for us.

Oddly enough I do not recall them having crab claws. They have great conch fritters and crab cakes, but did not have crab claws on the menu.
