Don't get all u can eat crabs here first the crabs were so small there is no way they were legal, next we were still eating our last tray of crabs they would give us and they started putting the chairs on tables and mopping floors they were so rude. We have had one other bad experience here but wanted... More

We went to PGN twice last week and enjoyed it both times. The food was very good and the service was great. We had shrimp that was cooked just right. It was in walking distance to our hotel which was very nice. They could use some work on the decor but funky restaurants like this have character. I also wished... More

We stopped in for lunch on a Thursday afternoon. The first warning sign should have been the almost empty dining room but then it was about 2 p.m. so we thought nothing of it. We were seated immediately. We didn't want a large lunch so my wife ordered a bowl of crab soup and I ordered a ham sandwich on... More

Unlike the bombastic “locally sourced” movement, it is nice of find a place that’s truly local without the pretense or guilt trip. I enjoyed the AYCE crabs twice at PGN. I am a native Marylander whose family is from the Easter Shore, home of crabs. I have never had better crabs in a restaurant than at PGN. The crabs were... More

If you want to eat a lot and cheap, well YES this is the right place. Food is not that bad but the atmosphere is horible. The windows are allmost gray, furniture is very "vintage", it smells of crabs so bad that you have to throw your clothes on the whasing machine when you're out. Another bad thing about this... More

We went for all you can eat crabs on Labor Day weekend, the restaurant was crowded but we were seated right away. The decor is outdated and the price for all u can eat was the cheapest in ocean city, so we weren't sure what to expect, but we got the best! The crabs were hot and heavy, at least... More

All you can eat (check hours) includes crabs, chicken, corn, rolls. Often, when just my husband and I, we just get half dozen of larger sized steamed crabs. Salads are fresh and large and can be split with two people too. Might look a little run down - but it's great - go in - you will be happy.

Wow! This was such a nice surprise! We happened upon PGN, and boy, were we lucky! The steamed crabs were large and delicious - we ordered a dozen for the two of us, which was too much. I was wondering if they'd be upset if we offered the extra to our neighbors, but the waitress actually suggested it. The steamed... More

Our family went to this restaurant because of the signs outside, and it sounded good. Most of us wanted seafood. I ordered a salad, and it was a huge bowl of lettuce. I also ordered steamed shrimp, and I have to admit, that it was good. We all got our food at different times. The waitresses weren't even nice and... More
