My family of 11 had a delightful supper at this quaint, historical building. I am the only non-seafood lover, and I ordered the ribeye. The flavor was delicious, but a third of it was fat. I showed it to our waiter, and he insisted on...More

Went for lunch with a group of 5 friends. Waitress can only be described as surly. We should have left right off but we were hungry. The food was marginal at best.

This place could be "Cheers" if it only had more seating. Great music playing in the background, friendly conversations from the several small groups gathered there. The beer was cold and the service is over the top. The Seafood Platter was delicious. My wife had...More

I have a friend that hails from Georgetown and the crab legs were all the talk. She said she picked up a box and boiled them up at home. My question is, is it possible to have a box or 2 of legs shipped from your restaurant?
