What are they trying to be?

Kinda an unusual place. Some of the decor is nice and the rest looks in disrepair. Are they trying to look "old and weathered" like a real crab shack? Not sure. I stopped for a snack and beer since I was not that hungry. Once I finally received the beer that I ordered (took about 10 minutes... read more

So many times you see restaurants along the expressway and wonder about the food and service. I was doubtful about this little shack, but as it turned out, it delivered some of the best seafood I have had in a very long time. This is being said after spending 6 days in Nassau, then an additional 7 days on a... More

We ate Sunday dinner here on the suggestion of the hotel front desk clerk as a favorite of hers. The seafood selection is good and can be ordered served fried, grilled or broiled. My husband ordered the fried oysters, but when they arrived the cornmeal seasoning was too hot for his taste. The waitress had the order replaced with one... More

He got the blackened grouper and fried shrimp, corn on the cob and slaw. He enjoyed all of it. I got the fried shrimp, scallops and catfish filet with baked potato and green beans. All of the seafood... More

Some of the best crab legs ever. One in our group had the NY strip and it was cooked to perfect medium. Good place to eat right off I75

We gave this a try based on prior reviews. Service was great, but the food was way too greasy for our taste. Did not care for the grouper fish tacos, the tortillas were soggy and limp, and they were greasy. Mango salsa and coleslaw were tasty, Calamari was tough and greasy, catfish sandwich was ok. Red beans and rice were... More
