If you're squeamish about cleanliness or loud, bustling noise/activities while you eat, then this place isn't for you. But if you're willing to overlook a few things to get fresh and tasty shrimp, then you've found the right place. You order your uncooked/fresh seafood by the pound (snow crabs, lobsters, scallops, oysters, several types of shrimp, several types of fish) along with vegetables, potatoes, garlic bread, and any other fixings. (Prices are not cheap so be forewarned!) Then you take your seafood (in bags) to the kitchen on the other side, they'll cook it for you, and you pick it up to go or eat there.
Tips: (1) Half pound of shrimp + full order of vegetables and potatoes + 1 order of garlic bread = PLENTY for two people. (2) Crabs are mostly thawed stuff so not the freshest of the offerings - stick with shrimp. (3) Shrimp with heads are the cheapest but also the messiest. (4) Seating area has view of industrial shipping channel/dock - nothing romantic or scenic. Plus the tables and floorboards are old and creaky and pretty dirty - again if you're squeamish, don't come. (5) Food is served in plastic trays like at a fast food place, laid out on parchment paper, a big mound of food depending on what you ordered. Be prepared to eat with your hands. (6) Weekends can get packed with families and mariachi bands and screaming kids. It's pretty quiet on weekdays.
