Worst crabs we ever had and took forever for a beer refill. Complained repeatedly about over cooked crabs as did the couple next to us. Sadly after several attempts to bring appropriately cooked crabs they gave up - that was just the way they were....More

Had a burger and was disappointed. I don't care for Crabs, But my husband ordered all you can eat Crab Dinner, and loved it.

Loved the steamed shrimp, a little spicy but very good flavor. Got the latte shrimp vs. medium, well worth the extra $2. My husband got the fish and chips, which he liked very much.

Believe it or not, we thought the fried chicken was the best. It comes with the all you can eat crabs. Crabs were a little on the light side, but nonetheless still enjoyable. Staff is great. Overall a great place for food and drinks or...More
