You can dine inside or the deck outside facing the beach and the ocean. the food was at a fair price and... read more

We wandered in and came back every day of our vacation. Laid back with friendly bartenders. Crabs are great.

This place is about 2/3 of the way south on the boardwalk. We were greeted by a cheery hostess and sat inside because it was 92 degrees outside. Nothing fancy but cooler than outside. Our server had a Russian accent and was wonderful. We had 5 in our party and everyone got something different. Wings, chicken fingers, steamed shrimp, stuffed... More

The restaurant is on the boardwalk and just didn't meet our taste. We had the fried scallops, fried oysters. and wings for our starters. They were not bad tasting but were over fried. The scallops were either bay scallops or cut up so they looked like clam strips. The cocktail sauce was good but I had to request it. Our... More

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
