“Expected more for the money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014 via mobile

Being from Texas I expected my seafood platter to be a little larger for the price. On the upside it was not all fried and the steak was well prepared. The crab cake is very good however I wouldn't pay $18 for it for dinner. The service was excellent, the server enthusiastic. The beer was good but I would skip most of the food again.

“Service-Great, Food-Great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

My sister and I found this purely by chance. Greeted and seated right away. Our server, Billy, got our drinks instantly and was great and good-natured keeping up with our constant requests. The owner even came and checked on us a few times. We split a dozen crabs (brought in the night before, all male crabs) and steamed shrimp as well as a couple drinks, including the Flying Dog Dead Rise Old Bay.The Perfect beer to accompany hard shells. Without a doubt, a fantastic place to kick back relax and pick crabs. Just what we needed, Thanks!

“Celebrated my birthday here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2013

My husband researched and wanted to take me to a place that was local with good food and without crazy prices. I was hesitant as I had been here years ago and was not impressed.
I must say, the food was amazing. Our waitress, (wish I had gotten her name) was fantastic.
They offer surf and turf which many of us got and it was fabulous. The salads that accompanied the meal was terrific as well.
