Okay...nothing fantastic

Had crab creme soup--it was good, but not memorable. Tried the crab cake sandwich and it was served on a McDonald's style bun with a small crab cake lettuce and tomato. Nothing extraordinary by any means but tasty nonetheless. If you are in the neighborhood, try it. I wouldn't go out of my way... read more

High prices , slow service and just OK food. We like to go to out of the way places and try something different. We tried the crab soup that was just OK . My pork belly sandwich tasted like lard with mayo ( not sure why Guy liked it ) and our $12 grilled cheese again was nothing to write... More

I ordered from here and it was takeout /delivery. The crab soup was phenomenal and the angry crab soup was so good that I ordered it 3 nights in a row. The prices were good and the delivery was fast.

We REALLY enjoyed the Triple D, the Veggie Quesadillas and a side of their sweet potatoes fries! I think the prices are a bit high, but I guess to be expected when at the shore.

Our son had seen this restaurant on a web-site called Dives and Diners or something on that order and we decided to try it on our recent visit to Ocean City, NJ. Family members seemed to really like the grilled cheese with a clam cake on it. I tried the fried flounder reuben. It was really good but then I... More

Been coming here for years... a tradition on every trip to OCNJ. Great, yet simple menu. Crabcake melt is my fav (crabcake, monteray jack, & tomato). Crabcake is decent. Not awesome, but good. Diners, Drive-Ins, & Drives recently did a segment on them... their menu now reflects a few of Guy's favs. Service is spotty... but overall, a decent place...with... More

We saw this place on Diners, Drive-In's and Dives and decided to check it out after our tubing adventure. The place had maybe 6 people in it so there was no reason why the service was as horrible as it was. It took a very long time for her to greet us and take our drink order. Then it took... More

We saw this place on food network and my 5 year old was super excited to go somewhere famous for dinner and it was so good and very decently priced. The crab fries, crab cakes and desserts were spot on!

1st off...superb staff. Cream of crab was delish. Coconut/almond shrimp perfectly cooked and tasty....sauces very good also. Fried pickles very tasty. Cuban grilled cheese and crab cake grilled cheese two thumbs up. Mac n cheese was solid with wonderful crust. And I hate pineapple but pineapple creme brûlée cheesecake was addictive. Great choice when in the area.

This place is a great find. Glad we stopped here on the way to OC NJ. Very good food, great service, they get a good lunch crowd, a little 5 minute wait for a table and we were served and eating within 10 minutes. Loved the crab cakes sandwich and the fried shrimp. We will definitely be stopping here again... More
