The Crab Pot was recommended by the hotel front desk. Since it was down by the water, I thought I would give it a try. I ordered the Clam Chowder and fried oysters. The Chowder was tasteless! All potatoes and no clam meat/flavor! The fried...More

I visited this restaurant for a dinner to try their seafest: a bowl of stuffed seafood, crab, shrimps, served directly on the table. We waited more than 40 minutes before to be seated, so be ready for a long wait without banches or a simple...More

Short wait time. Nice wait staff that helps u choose from a big menu. Great seafood. We had a big bowl of steamed shellfish that was dumped on paper that covered the table. Informal and great way for everyone to dig in. A fun experience

We went for lunch with another couple. The grilled shrimp was very good, as was The Captain’s Combo. Large portions for the money, too. Service was great. It was a good time.

The food was really good, and the fresh seafood was definitely worth it. However, the wait was very long (at least an hour), but in the summer it could be around three hours wait.

The name says it all - it's all about Crabs. And they do it superbly well. It was worth the 35 minutes wait for the crab legs that came with a hammer and a bib to protect your clothes. Tasty stuff. The cake in a...More

Stopped in for lunch. Was hoping to get a pot of crab but you have to have a minimum of two people to order that. Settled with halibut and chips with calamari strips. Halibut was good but calamari very bland.
