We were visiting PG for our annual fishing trip and had to come back here to eat. The Blue Crab clusters in the garlic was delicious, lobster bites were fantastic and so were the lobsters! Fantastic service and our server was on her game with quick drink orders and refills. Highly recommend this great food!

This is a small seafood house on Duncan Rd and they specialize in steamed crabs. So order the steamed crabs. Crabs are priced as other restaurants are in the area which can seem expensive but are the average cost for steamed blue crabs. They are steamed Maryland Style with crab seasonings and rock salt. We ordered a dozen of the... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant last night, had a good meal with drinks and even bought a pint of the awesome smoked mullet dip to bring home. The brown haired waitress with a blonde streak took our bank card, added an additional $20 charge and did not provide us with the itemized bill. We signed it giving her... More

If you like fresh crabs and don't mind paying, you might like this place. I chose the crab cakes--such a disappointment. Flat as a pancake, same consistency as a pancake and burnt. No seasoning. Served with hard, tasteless red potatoes and a small corn on the cob which I think had been frozen. Best thing I had was the iced... More

We were referred here by a local who raved about the food so we decided to give it a try. It’s not a place we would have stopped at otherwise – it’s a small, old dingy looking shack. Inside is quaint, very old-Florida decor. Not much room and a bit stuffy inside, so we chose to sit outside on the... More

We finally tried this place.....very, very pricey, no rolls or salad come with dinner, 1/2 ear of corn at best and one red potato. Tuna was very good. Atmosphere cruddy/dirty....one bathroom that still has a bathtub in it and no woman likes to go into a unisex bathroom and have to put down the toilet seat from some guy that... More

We have heard raving reviews from a friend about the place and almost drove down for the sole purpose of trying the place. We finally made it there today in between trips and while I love the old Florida theme the prices were unreasonable for the food they serve. The food was average at best. The restaurant was right off... More

This is the real deal people. This is the hidden Gem of seafood. Dress casual and have a seat. Enjoy the all you can eat blue crab served with red potatoes and corn. Great price. Oysters, clams, and other seafood is available. Worth the trip.

Before we left for Florida my husband did a lot of researching of places to visit. This included restaurants, places to stay, attractions to see, etc. He said this restaurant had a lot of great reviews and thought it'd be the place to go. We went out of our way to visit this restaurant as we were staying about 40... More

Just went recently--food is good, service is good. Not a fancy place, similar to the old Florida cracker shacks. They have all you can eat crab specials, but you will need to call ahead to see if they are available when you go--no set night(s).
