Fried shrimp were refryed, baked potatoes served plain ( you have to ask for sour cream). Iced tea taste like premixed powder, service by a bunch of kids who have little service experience. Crab cakes good though. If the bathroom is any indication of cleanliness the kitchen is not clean! Floor sticky and overall weird smelling.

I have been here numerous times and the size and quantity do not compare to any place. The portions are generous and the quality can't be matched. Will not be disappointed... Do yourself a favor and order the crabcakes!

I have had crab cakes in many many places. These are absolutely the best and real thing you will get if you want carb cakes in this part of the country. They are ALL Crab--huge-- and the flavor-- time after time--is wonderful. I will only comment on their crab cakes. They sell may other sea foods,but I always return to... More

This was my first visit. The service was definitely not up to my standards. You basically have to wave down a person for anything after you order and get your food. Whether it is water, condiments or whatever. I still tipped them decently because I think they are just very busy. Although our person did not have much personality. No... More

Stopped by for dinner after a tournament with my granddaughter and was good! Of course fried foods are better then broiled but the crab cakes are the best We have ever had and We have had quite a few over the years! Large size and very little filler! Don't bother ordering anything else! Will go again when I'm in the... More

Both times I had the crab cakes and WAS NOT disappointed. They we're awesome! I called ahead, they told me what time it would be done and... More

I came here on my own and was seated at a table in a lounge-like area, not too far from the bar. It's an interesting atmosphere... the wait staff is dressed like it's some swanky upscale restaurant, but the lighting and other decor doesn't seem to match with that theme. Some guests were dressed very nicely and others were there... More

The crab cakes were gross. And from what I heard ( after the visit) that it's a very unsanitary place. The food was nothin special at all. Won't go here ever again.

Wanted to eat in dining room, but would have had a hour wait. Decided to do carry out, quite a long wait there also. I had the hamburger sub and coleslaw. I didn't like the slaw nor the sub. I will not be going there again.
