Customer service A-1.First impressed by the waitress and her hospitality. The food was delicious. I tried the deep fried lobster tail sandwich.We also ordered lobster grilled cheese, crab cake grill cheese, crab cake sandwiches along obay fries and battered onion rings. It sounds like kid food with all the grilled cheese but it was a very full filling lunch.

Tucked away in a small shopping plaza was this wonderful small eatery. The food was amazing. I had the deep fried lobster sandwich and ate every morsel. Their crab chowder was some of the best I have ever had. I was sorry I didn't buy some to bring home. Friendly service and great food. What more can you ask for!... More

While picking up pizza in the same strip mall, noticed the Grilled Cheese & Crab Cake restaurant, it was closed (past 7), so I looked their menu up on line and came back earlier the next day for dinner. Big choice of food, although they were out of fried clams. Food was excellent and they even sell beer and wine.... More

I saw the other reviews on TA and had to give this a try. We loved it! Of course how can you go wrong when you mix buttery Texas toast with tasty seafood and CHEESE? I had the crab melt and the hubbie had the lobster melt. Both were scrumptious! The atmosphere is not the draw to this little place.... More

Unbelievable combination. Crab and Grilled Cheese. The Cajun Fries were delicious. The sandwich was out of this world. We will definitely go back.

Service was very friendly and attentive as well as appreciative. Food was excellent and very reasonably priced. . Various sandwiches containing seafood with cheese ,etc, as well as other seafood dishes without the added cheese.... More

Reading the reviews on TA, the bar was set high. The place is very small but the food and service were out of this world. I split the Lobster grilled cheese and the Crabcake grilled cheese with my with and both were GREAT!!! The waitress was very nice and professional. I will be back.

...We almost left. It is really small inside but the customers inside and out all had smiles on their faces so we set down. What a Close One!
