I you like tasty crabmeat with garlic it's the perfect place. Order all at once because I takes some time from order until arrival of the food. Nice hippy/ surfer ambiente.

The food is pretty standard. The staff made the visit enjoyable. Our waiter was actually very knowledgeable about crab harvesting and gave my compadre some great tips on how to eat crab effortlessly.

The Food was ok..overpriced. $20 for an appetizer. . Very Small crab clusters ..we were bothered that we waited an hour and half to be served.. While 3 tables sat after us got their food and left before we got our food. Manager tried to makeup by giving a gift card. Not sure I'll return to use it.

Fun atmosphere for kids. Lots to look at and noisy with staff singing happy birthday. Very reasonable expense. I have a problem with most of it being fried, but they do have other options. This is a restaurant with a serious party vibe (which kids enjoy). Not the place for a romantic meal or a business meeting, but fun none... More

We had a delightful experience and throughly enjoyed our crab buckets.It wasn't too crowded even on a Saturday afternoon so that made it even better. IOur waitress was friendly and attentive.
