Very crowded so we ate at the bar. Joel was a lot of fun and drafts were $2. The food was good and reasonable. Fun shore spot.

Good place for a drink and appetizer. The crabs they are known for, are mushy (not soft shell) & don't taste fresh. Same poor quality crabs as with last ownership, but the music & outside patio was nice.

I came here with my family of five, and we found the restaurant very unfriendly and unpleasant. A members of my family were looking forward to king crab legs but were unable to get them. We were recommended there, and we soon after realized it was because of the bar, not the food. If your looking for a place to... More
