The crab legs were very good. Everyone in the dinner party enjoyed their meal, the only disappointment was parking.

Food was very good, kids had a good time cracking crab. Server was good, friendly, and attentive. However it did take longer than usual for food to come out.

Was always wanting to try the seafood at this restaurant and finally had a chance to do so. I ordered the East Coast Platter which had plenty of food and was very good. Service was good and I will go back here again.

Don't do it. Just don't even go. There is a nice restaurant just across the quad there with outdoor seating (opposite end of the fountain) that is just so much better.
