Great little crab shack

Great little crab shack! stumbled upon it on our walk. We were pleased to be seated right away at the prime dinner hour. The place was busy. The service was good. We had the crab vegetable soup, crabs, and shrimp.

It is definitely a small place and there are bigger more fancy ones, but we stopped here. The crab legs were amazing, the shrimp was good but I prefer my shrimp cleaned (my only complaint.) If you enjoy crab legs, stop.

We had carry out and bought a pound of large shrimp and some corn. The shrimp was well seasoned and the corn was really sweet. Also, for what we got it was reasonably priced.

I am not a big crab eater, but my wife is. She hits PGN at least 2-3 times when we visit OCMD. Thge crabs are filling and smell sooo good when she brings them into the car. PGN is one of the few places in OCMD to get fried clam strips (one of my favorites).

I hadn't been to OC in over five years. Work took me overseas to many exotic locales. I always stay around 29th St growing up and throughout adulthood. The first night there, I rekindled my love affair with PGN. The place isn't much to look at. It's charm is that it's not fancy. Wear what you want. This is a... More

Great place for real whole crab. All u can eat on the smaller ones but we went for the large dozen...much tastier. Not much else going on, just solid real deal Maryland crab pickin. Way better than the rubber snow crab legs you get at the buffet places. Crab is well priced for the location as well.

Previously we were Hooper's people, but decided to try some place new. The prices were much more reasonable and the atmosphere was more conducive for families with younger children. The wait staff were pleasant and the bathrooms clean.
