Went for the all you can eat crab legs and the crab legs weren't cooked right. The meat just fell apart and was nearly impossible to get out of the shell. Threw most of the meat away because it was a timely process and I was not patient enough. Also the service was absolutely horrible, drink refills... HA! The look and attitude of the waiters face after asking for another order of crab legs felt like you were asking them to clean the toilets. Overall bad experience and I will not be returning!

This restaurant was very convenient to the Outlet mall, it was a very busy day at the outlet and we didn't even have to move our car. Perfect!! The fish tacos with the island fire sauce were delicious and I love their French fries. Great restaurant, highly recommended.

The food is always made fresh to your specific order, even on all-you-can-eat crableg night (Wednesdays). It somehow provides a great mix of special occasion dining, sportsbar, and family dining. The crabcakes are the best on the Eastern Seaboard (my humble opinion, and I've traveled from Maine to Florida), with no filler, lots of lumpy sweet crabmeat, and a spicy remoulade served on the side.
