It was just Ok. The food was hot but over cooked. Our waiter was very distracted by something. Drinks came after about 20 minutes. Asked for some ketchup to try to help some of the food, never got it. However the bill was brought promptly.

Unpretentious and friendly place to have whole buckets of boiled/steamed seafood and also the usual deep-fried sorts of shellfish. Main buckets come with potatoes and corn on the cob.

True to their name, the crab is the item to select... it's very tasty. The fish and chips, not so much... it's pretty bland.

This service is still friendly, but my stomach is still reeling from the food I ate there at lunch. I was told by the waiter that the redfish and lobster platter would have 'lots' of lobster and that the redfish didn't have a fishy taste, but it did, and there were only a few teensy weensy pieces of lobster at best. The creamy sauce does not sit well, and I would not recommend this to anyone. It was not cheap, and I will not return, because of deceptiveness in what I was given.

Stumbled upon this casual eatery while out walking the Riverwalk & couldn’t resist a bucket of sweet snow crab legs. Excellent value for money, delicious food & good service. I loved that the chef came out to chat & see if people were enjoying themselves. Enjoyed the margaritas & would recommend this place.
