The seafood was fantastic. I had a side of red potatoes that had no flavor. The staff were friendly. I would not recommend this place for a family or group. I did feel it was a bit pricey for a place that uses paper towels...More

If you love fresh seafood, this is your place. Crabs, shrimp, oysters, they got them all. The wait is worth it.

This is the real deal if you want great, fresh seafood in a fun setting. Our family was lucky enough to get only one of the 2 booths. Otherwise, belly diner style. Metal counters and thick, large sheets of paper to eat on so you...More

It just depends on how long the water stays warm enough for the crabs. We will catch and serve them until it gets too cold. Some years that’s Ddcember. Some years it’s late October.

There are picnic tables on the property where you could enjoy a takeout order with your furry friends. We do not provide waiter service to them. Non-seafood options are limited to sides and chicken tenders. Hope this helps!
