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

During our 4-day visit to Ocean City, we visited PGN twice. we stayed at Hilton so this is very convenient. We dined in once and had the platter (I believe it's called 20/6/20 or sth like that) that has 6 crabs, steamed clams and shrimp. That was delicious. Our son had the fish sandwich from the kids menu. Crabs were... More

If you like steamed blue crabs, you will love this place. They have the best crabs in Maryland. Big, hot, and I have never gotten a bad crab. They have a special where you eat all the crabs, fried chicken, corn on the cob and french-fries you can eat for one low price.

The women in my family head to Ocean City every summer and always go to PGN. This year it was just me and my sister and we were in OC for only 3 nights but still went to PGN 4 times for crabs. We love this place. The crabs are excellent and the people are so friendly. I can't wait... More

Nice crab house, though needs some updating. We've been here a few times, each time exactly the same. Good crabs, friendly staff, good prices. Could be a little fixed up with livelier paint colors, remodeled bathroom, outside appearance, but it all works for the Maryland "crab experience." A little crowded in the parking lot, but we always get a space.... More

We ordered take out platters upon arrival Friday night in Ocean City and were not disappointed. This is a go to restaurant for us, particularly for seafood take out. We ordered two large seafood platters, salads & sides for $65 and were very happy with our selections. The service was good, staff friendly and helpful, and the food was good.... More

Ok lets be honest, if you are going to smash blue crab with a hammer do you really want to do that in a 5 star restaurant? Heck no! PGN is a perfect atmosphere for eating crab. It is outdated inside, but once you taste the crab you will not care. Their crab is the nest I have ever had.... More
