One of the better crab cakes in the area, and if you aren't driving, you have to treat yourself to their signature "Rum Runner", or better yet perhaps two of them! While I haven't had dessert there in a while due to always being too...More

The cool breeze blew thru the restaurant like we were seated on some Island. The smell of the salt air mixed with the fresh prepared seafood. The large ceiling fan moves air thru the restaurant, but may take you napkin away, or blow your menu....More

This is your standard mom and pop fried seafood restaurant except the crab cakes are spectacular. All crab, minimal fillet, no shell! As for their special broccoli, it's just steamed broccoli (a head of it) with hollandaise. Stick with the crab cakes!

I had the crab cakes, which are really baked crab in a dish! SO this means not much filler, just yummy crab meat. I also had broccoli as a side, and it was good too. Definitely a place to try.
