I give it 5 stars for all the great memories. But the property has been sold and is being torn down to make way for a strip center. Too bad, it was great in it's day.

Best reasonably priced soft shell crab in the area .. large servings! Easy access off Route 35. I like the 50's drive-in atmosphere. The only thing missing is the waitresses on roller skates!
