I loved the crab chowder, but ordered a bowl as my main course, maybe I got the cup...not enough for my dinner. We got the old bay fries which tasted great, but I like crunchy fries and these were too soggy/soft for me. Wanted crab...More

Weekend without the children, looking for a nice place to enjoy lunch. Crabs may be local but at $68 per dozen, certainly over priced. To start, we ordered two bloody marys (watered down tomato juice and horseradish) and one dozen steamed clams. Clams were tasteless...More

Tried this local restaurant when we stayed at a local B & B. If you are in the mood for fresh shrimp, crabs or lobsters, this is the place for you. It is very rustic, you get a wooden mallet and crack your own. But...More

Great bar for eating crabs. I have gone there several times and have never been disappointed. The frys are good as well.

We had crab cake sandwich. There was NO flavor. Everything was frozen. We will not go again. The server was nice. The handicap facilities were poor.
