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

We went to PGN twice last week and enjoyed it both times. The food was very good and the service was great. We had shrimp that was cooked just right. It was in walking distance to our hotel which was very nice. They could use some work on the decor but funky restaurants like this have character. I also wished... More

We stopped in for lunch on a Thursday afternoon. The first warning sign should have been the almost empty dining room but then it was about 2 p.m. so we thought nothing of it. We were seated immediately. We didn't want a large lunch so my wife ordered a bowl of crab soup and I ordered a ham sandwich on... More
