Buddy's is a great place to get food. You need have them prepare the food. The key lime pie is one of the best you will find. It is great place for seeing the local culture.

Buddy Gandy's is a hidden gem in PC. We come here every time we come down because of the quality of fresh seafood. This time, we got some lobster tails and we were very pleased.

Seafood is so dependent on supply and demand. In the Summer there are lots of visitors so the prices tend to be higher on popular items like shrimp and oysters.

I'm not sure but after it's steamed it's not difficult at all to shell. Hope this helps.
