Great place to sit along the boardwalk. Service was so-so but we went during prime time, so it is hectic for the wait staff. Hot crabs and cold beer. nothing fancy but a nice place to relax

Tried to show up with a party of 8 at dinner time, long wait (of course), so we came back mid-afternoon the next day when it was practically empty. Great crabs (tasted great to me, anyway) and plenty of beer and a fun messy environment, what's not to love?

My girlfriend and I visited this restaurant on a Wednesday evening. We were seated under a gutter with water dripping out of it onto me. We then asked to be moved inside. The hostess instructed us to sit at the bar and they would get a table ready for us. We sat there for at least 30 minutes waiting. Then... More

My husband and I sat at a high top by the bar for some quick eats. I got the "bowl" of salad which was the size of a side dish bowl and most of the lettuce had that brown tint to it(gross). Also got a shrimp cocktail that was warmer than room temperature which actually made me nervous to eat.... More

fun food and experience loved the all you can eat crab and shrimp. The price is right and you sit right on the boardwalk near the ocean. Got to try it.

My wife and I stopped in for a dozen of crabs while our sons hung out with friends on the boardwalk . We were surprisingly disappointed . They were light , no flavor , and very watery. Almost like they were boiled instead of steamed. I can't speak for anything else they serve because this is all we had .... More

My husband and I split a dozen crabs with a few beers and a shrimp cocktail. Warning: shrimp cocktail is extremely small and only 4 shrimp so don't go in expecting more. The service was excellent, and the crabs were awesome and it's right on the boardwalk! So nice but not fancy by any means, so if that's what your... More

Let me first start by saying that I'm a very forgiving/understanding person when it comes to dining experiances. I'm a server myself and understand mistakes happen in the kitchen. This meal however, was absolutely Terrible! The tables were still dirty when we sat down and the underneath of it had Nats everywhere. The paper towels were covered in food. We... More

Again, this was one of our go to places on a bar crawl. Amazing waitress and enjoyed joking with us as well as learning new jokes. Very friendly and the one day a crab got away in the bar and I said, "Hey, i thought you said you didn't have crabs" The bartender replied " Hey, I don't but the... More
