This is the only place that I know of that prices their AUCE Crabs according to the size that are available. If they have large crabs then it will be higher and lower if the crabs are smaller. We usually get the crabs, chicken & corn deal. The crabs regardless of size are usually meaty so not too... read more

My wife and I stopped in for lunch and man the seafood was excellent! We highly recommend this place from the time you walk in the lady at the front was so warm & friendly. Stuffed flounder with crabmeat, scallops & shrimp my wife ordered and I had the best crab cakes ever!! A must place for seafood lovers.

The menu is intimidating. Everything looked expensive. We tried the crab cake sandwich and grilled tuna sandwich which were great. Still seemed a little pricy.

This place had the atmosphere of a diner, but the seafood was excellent. And if you have members of your party who don't like seafood there were other diner-like items on the menu.

Went here with a group of 5 ladies. One of the ladies has trouble walking and we did not want to drive, This was within walking distance of our hotel. The atmosphere was not really to my standard and the food was average. If it had been up to me we would have gone somewhere else. Probably will not return... More

We went on a family trip with our 2 kids - 3.5 and 13 months and my husband's parents and sister and son. We have been coming here for years and my in-laws have been coming here for at least 2 decades. The owner is really great and takes care of the place. There is nothing fancy about the look... More

We have been coming here for years! The all you can eat crab, shrimp, corn and fries is the best tasting and best value around! Our waitress was friendly and we had excellent service. The restaurant is nothing fancy but who cares , it's a crab shack, I'm there to eat crabs!

This place was recommended to us by friends. It's a hole in the hall type restaurant but very worth the visit. We ordered off the menu and didn't have the AYCE crabs. The seafood platter and crab cake dinners we ordered were cooked perfectly. Service was great despite the slight language barrier but overall a great dinner. Pricing was about... More
