We also ordered the seafood plater. It was fresh and was great. Our son ordered the little clucker. It had two... More

We ate here almost every night we were in OC. The crabs are perfectly cooked and have just enough spice. The fried chicken and french fries are great too. The place isn't fancy, but who cares when the crabs are that good. One recommendation, maybe get beer other than Coors and Bud on tap.

Mgr/owner does not allow patrons in same group to order all-u-can-eat and crabs by the dz. basically taking away your choice. Waitresses confided that they get yelled at all the time when they get a party where some order all-u-can-eat and others get individual items from menu. The waitresses literally told us to please not "share" because owner thought we... More

Just eat at PGN for the second time. Once again the seafood was well prepared, tasted great and more then enough to satisfy one's appetite. The service is excellent and the staff is very attentive to your needs. Crab prices were very competitive also but we opted for seafood platters. Highly recommend especially for families.

A trip to OC isn't complete without visiting PGN, which has the best, heaviest, sweetest crabs. Recently, we ate an all-you-can-eat of crabs, fried chicken, corn and French fries.

This place was our go to place, for years and years. Then we went year before last and the crabs had a fungus, black dots all over the inside. I get it, they're crabs, but they couldn't care less. GROSS. so we tried again last year, crabcake sandwiches and a dozen crabs. I paid for larges, but they were small-mediums,... More

We weren't sure whether to eat here or not but we were persuaded by the friendly welcome. The stuffed flounder was as good as it gets - the stuffing was full of shrimp and scallop. The steamed shrimp were also very good - cooked perfectly and with an excellent spicy sauce. Both dishes were large enough to make dessert impossible... More

This is the worst place I've ever been to in my entire life. From the minute you walk in the door you are treated like a thief. Went to this restaurant with my husband and daughter. My daughter and I got the all you can eat crabs at $34.95 each. My husband does not eat seafood and got a burger.... More

I read these reviews and it seems the disgruntled people who wrote poorly about PGN were not food related. Stick to the topic people!. The Place is small but the atmosphere makes you feel like you are on a rustic seafood binge, awesome! We come from Long Island NY and can't wait to go to see our friends who have... More
