This place was recommended to us for the cream of crab soup. I loved it but my wife thought it was so/so. The crabs were very good. $1.50 each for mediums. Medium/larges are $2.00 each. Highly recommend.

I saw that this place had good reviews, so we decided to check it out for lunch. It was a bad decision. The place is a shack, more or less, which is somewhat endearing, given the type of restaurant it is. However, the food was largely disappointing. I had the crab cake sandwich, which was tasty, but tiny. I felt... More

The food was average... but the wait for take-out was way too long, considering they were not very busy. I ordered the chicken bites for my daughter, and it was clearly a $7 meal designed for a toddler, not a child. I would eat there again, if there were no other options.

I'm staying in Selbyville DE so I have to travel the length of Coastal Highway to get there. We'll worth the trip. Where anywhere can you get a lb of steamed shrimp for $12.99? Nowhere in Ocean city! That price will get you half a lb in OC. Had great service and an enjoyable time. The place doesn't look like... More

We had a fantastic dinner here during our visit to Ocean city. The restaurant is not close to boardwalk area but few miles away sea. From outside seems too simple but don't worry, inside good and clean atmosphere. We had the extra large crab (the jumbo ran off that evening). It was the best crab we ate! Delicious and really...

Had the best shrimp taco of my life here. Took home several lbs of shrimp. Devoured them right away. Can't wait to return this week when we go back to Ocean City.

My husband and I ate here on a Wed evening in July. There is outdoor seating facing rt 611 and an open field. Very eastern shore feeling. Indoor is like a large camp cabin with simple wood construction and screen windows. It rained while we were there and we stayed dry. I loved the beachy, outdoor atmosphere! Food is very... More

Best fresh seafood in the area. Can't go past without stopping, have even gone out of my way to stop. They will gladly pack your order in your cooler on ice, or cook it for you. I have done it both ways and equally as good. Yes the shrimp have the heads but once you have their shrimp you will... More

We had steamed crabs (jumbos), corn, hush puppies, french fries, hot dog, fried green tomatoes, and brownie sundae. The crabs were huge and decently priced (based on the market). The other food was also just as good. They do not have hard alcohol but they do have beer and wine. Service was a little slow but it was crowded and... More
