I usually sit at the bar and pick hot steamed crabs. Never been disappointed and the very few times I received an inferior crab, they'd bring me out another one to replace it. They've recently expanded due to not enough seating during summer months. Great...More

We’ve been coming here for years but most likely won’t come back. It’s gotten way too expensive. $16 for 10 wings. Just ridiculous. It’s just not worth it. Also a random 2% surcharge on our check. Not sure what that is. A real shame.

this was well worth the long wait. If you don't find anything to eat off of their menu then you weren't hungry for real. Food was excellent. Our server was phenomenal considering how bust the place was. Will certainly be back multiple times.

Unbelievable fried chicken and delicious cornbread! CHRISSY was our peppery fun waitress who made sure we had all we needed for a most memorable night. I'll be back from Pennsylvania soon!
