good seafood

We ate there on our vacation. My husband ordered the steamer. It was a pound of steamed shrimp, crab legs and 6 steamed crabs, and 2 ears of corn. A few of the crabs were mushy but everything else was good. I got the flounder stuffed with crab meat. It was pretty good. Definitely worth the money.

Good hearty meal. We got crabs and seafood sampler. Ate with our hands. It was a hearty meal. Satisfied our appetite for blue crabs coming to OC. Place is kind of shabby and dirty. There was fly flying around. It's also a bit pricy. But location and good down to earth cooking made up for it.

If your in the mood for crabs this place is right on the boardwalk. The service was good and quick. Enjoyed sitting on the upper deck even with all the foot traffic from the boardwalk. Was a little disappointed with the crabs because they were so watered down but at my fill none the less.

Different variety of crab and foods. We have picky eaters in our family and they were able to get what they wanted. My boyfriend and in-laws got the all you can eat crab and it was perfect every time the platter went low out came more crab. The snow crab legs were really good too and filling. Gotta come here...

We were looking for a place close to our hotel since we had my 92 year old mother who was in a wheelchair with us. The staff was so kind ushering us through the back and fixing a table so that mom could just stay in her chair. The shrimp was wonderful just lightly breaded. The fries were excellent with... More

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
