Came to this restaurant on vacation from Texas and should have not stopped due to the lack of cars in the parking lot. But since my family loves crab and the restaurant had a funny name we decided to give it a try. We all ordered a "full size" snow crab plate. Wow the disappointment when it arrived! Two very...

I usually go to bishops for the all you can eat crablegs but saw an advertisement for dirty dicks. Wish I would have stayed at bishops. The crablegs were brown, the meat was stuck to the shells of the crablegs. With no taste. After saying something to our waiter he stated, " yeah if it was up to me I... More

Let me start out by saying that I am not a food snob. Some of the best places are mom and pop shops that are tucked back somewhere. It was getting late and the kids were getting hungry. We had planned on going to the Mellow Mushroom but they were closed for remodeling. This place had a catchy name so... More

A group of 4 of us went because we wanted crab legs... 3 of us split the Trinity platter. It was $65.00 (expensive but split 3 ways was reasonable)! We went kinda late (7:30) so they were out of dungeness and stone crab that came in the trinity platter. So they were replacing it with snow crab which already came... More

It is a little dark inside but a fun environment. I had the shrimp and clams, my husband had the shrimp and catfish. The breading was light and the food was fried perfectly. Both plates (especially the shrimp and clams) were piled high with food. Enough food for two meals. The seafood was very tasty and this was a good... More

Waited at least 10 minutes for our server to greet us. After we ordered & got our food was not very good. 1 of my daughters didn't even eat hers & I picked at mine. Over priced!!!

We never actually ate here and this is why...we were greeted by a very lazy and blah hostess. The place was almost empty but she chose to sit us next to a full table. The tables are filthy. There was ketchup stuck all over the sticky greasy table cloth and food stuck to the holder that the bottles and napkins... More

The blackened fish tacos and she-crab soup were excellent!!! The she-crab soup has sherry in it, which gives it an amazing depth of taste. The fish tacos came 3 to an order, so there were some delicious leftovers. They also came with both jambalaya and red beans and rice; all outstanding and delicious. The offer several types of crab (dungeness,... More

We strive for wholesome, fresh made food. All of our fish are fresh, our shrimp are wild-caught domestic & our crab is fresh blue crab ( not Asian blue swimming crab ). The crab list here is the largest variety around to include Blue Crab , Alaskan King Crab, Snow Crab, Dungeness Crab and Jonah Crab. Crawfish is offered seasonally. We present ourselves as "Seafood with a New Orleans Accent" with nuances of Chesapeake Bay. Since we are originally from New Orleans, we also have entrees like Shrimp Etoufee and other Cajun/Creole delicacies. Our lunch specials start at $7.99 daily.
