This restaurant and take-out has a wide variety of fresh and prepared seafood. Crab cakes, as others have said, were very, very good. Be prepared to order cafeteria style and dine while standing, typically at long tables with other diners.

This place was recommended to us and now I'm recommending it! Lump crab cakes are a must, cucumber salad was delicious. The area nearby is a lil sketchy...but the food is hands down worth it!

No they do not take reservations; it's not a restaurant, per se, it's a good stand w/seating. Yes, it is a 5-10 min walk to the arena.
Is there a menu on line with prices?
