Love this place!

Every time we come to OC, MD, we eat here. There is nothing fancy about this establishment, but they offer friendly staff, the best fried chicken and good crabs. We're thinking of coming down for Father's Day! This would be my dads 1st time here and he will enjoy it.

The all-you-can-eat crabs are well priced. The seasoning was not very good; it was their own mix, rather than Old Bay. The fillers served with the crabs (chicken, corn, and fries) lacked any seasoning. It took 17 minutes in between servings to get more crabs and it appeared an intentional tactic to discourage getting more crabs.

Best place in Ocean City MD! All you can eat crabs, corn on the cob, friend chicken, fries for $30. Only thing that could improve this establishment is free refills. Only refills not charged is water, I go there every year.

Just good and simple. Paper rolled out on table, wood mallet, warm fresh crabs, friendly service, nothing complicated. Child friendly meals. Not to mention the cripy soft shell crab sandwich...mmmmmmm!!!

We eat here & one other crab place every Spring & Summer. We just was there the begining of April 2015 & had the best crabs ever. Everyone is very nice too. Even helping people who were behind us, they didn't know how to open crabs, so they took the time to show them.

My crab sandwich was good. Shrimp basket - shrimp were tiny. Crab soup - very little crab in it and it was missing something. The prices for dinners were higher than other restaurants we ate at in the area. Restaurant needs to be updated.

This crab house in Ocean city is my favorite. The crabs are sweet and meaty. They spice the crabs to perfection. The price for the buffet is compatible to other crab houses. The staff are friendly and make sure you have everything you want and need.

I'm a Midwesterner, married into a Maryland family. PGN was the first place at the beach I ever had crabs. And we stopped BEFORE we even checked in to our room! The crabs here are good, the beer is cold. That's all I know. We've never tried anything else. You DO want to order by the dozen though, but that... More

This is a must for getting Maryland-style seafood in Ocean City. All seafood and crabs are expensive, but that is normal in Maryland. They have excellent seasoning and will give you a hand if you don't know how to eat a crab. All you can eat is a rip off. Just get a dozen or so depending on how many... More
