Title says it all. Delicious crab pots that are the perfect blend of spices and food. Nelly was our waitress and she was fabulous! Quick to give us what we needed and always checking up on us to make sure we were taken care of. We will definitely be back soon!

My daughter and I just enjoyed wonderful appetizers and a steampot. The food was great and Caitlin our server was amazing- coming from a state far from the ocean she helped us make some very crucial dining decisions!

Good variety of crab, shrimp, seafood, and others. Friendly and helpful staff. The crab cakes were excellent, but ask for more roumelade sauce. Great casual and comfortable atmosphere.
