I was looking all over for crab legs and found it tucked away. This is a laid back , Jean wearing restaurant that will blow you away with flavor. The plates are HUGE and you can get any type of crab you desire. They also have good strip steaks for non seafood lovers. It is a bit pricey however you... More

I read the reviews and went to rustic with high expectations. The place is a little bit quirky and very old but generally well-kept. Obviously a lot of locals go there because the food is delicious. I had the crab sampler platter but should have ordered the lunch size because it could've easily been shared by two people. Their secret... More

The food was excellent but a bit pricey. The queen crab and king crab were fresh and sweet. Our waitress was friendly and helpful. Our bill was over $250. And the hostess not the waitress made it a point to tell us that the tip recommendations were on the bottom of the bill the lowest one being 18%., she then... More

Ive eaten at this location multiple times. Yesterday I had a bad experience with the hostess, she was rude, unprofessional. I spoke with the manager regarding the service nd the hostess attitude but nothing was done to make the situation better. The manager didn't seem like he cared. Horrible experience.

This is an authentic local crab house seafood place located in FortLauderdale on a small canal, facing a marina. There is both outdoor seating overlooking the little canal and air conditioned indoor seating. It has a great feel to the restaurant as you walk in...lots of people, all kinds of families, combinations of groups, couples, all ages, everyone with aprons... More

This restaurant has been at that location for many years and it still has the best selection of seafood anywhere in Ft Lauderdale. The place itself is not fancy or modern in decor, but once you are served the amazing cornbread, and fantastic garlic crabs you forget your surroundings for sure!! If it's tasty seafood you're looking for, without any... More

Chowder, minimal clam, too much cardiman, which is all you could taste, special dish called "one foot in and one out for" $36 was average at best, mushy crab and lobster filling, steak was very good. Take a big wallet, cheapest wine $10, most dishes 27 and up! I would not return, not with the islamorada fish company down the... More

Ate here last night, about a two minute drive from the Fairfield Inn. Could have walked there in the same amount of time. This crab house has been here for 40 years with the area growning up around it. Not fancy....just as the name implies, rustic. Just like the crab houses of a long forgotten Florida. It was like stepping... More
