Yummy and filling

We saw this place on TV and thought we'd give it a try. We had the crabby bacon fries which were delicious. My husband had the pork belly ruben and I had the cuban...they were yummy. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a good change.

The first time the boyfriend and I were here, we liked it so much we had to come back when we were in the area. The first time here, I really liked the fried pickles and that it did not leak oil. Well ... this time it did! I wasted so many napkins trying to soak the oil out. My... More

Wanted a good grilled cheese and the cream of crab soup! Seated right away and drinks ordered. Went with the good stuff, grilled cheese and crab soup. Both very good. Service good and price is right.

We usually try to find a Diner's Drive-Ins and Dives place on every road trip or vacation. This was the first one out of about 10 that has disappointed all of us. The cream of crab soup was way too thick. Like raw white flour thick. The crab balls were okay - they were fritters and deep fried. I'm not... More

The menu is a bit limited, but done well. Stuffing a crab cake into a grilled cheese (with tomato) does sound a bit odd, but it certainly was delicious. Nothing fancy here, just good casual fare done well with friendly service.

Went here on a whim because I know many people who love the food and it was on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, but it really didn't blow my socks off. My boyfriend had the triple D melt which he did enjoy and said was tasty. I have never had a burger with crab on it so I decided to try... More

Went here with a friend and had to try the DDD famous Crab Cake Melt. OMG delicious! I normally don't like crab cakes, but this sandwich was awesome! Due to DDD be prepared to wait for a seat during peak meal times since there is limited seating. Well worth the wait or you can get take out. Wait staff was... More

Did not expect to find one of the best crab cakes in a little strip mall in Somers Point, NJ .But to my surprise we did. The fried pickles are awesome and the crab french fries are a must to order. The crab cake on texas toast with cheese is out of this world . Loved it . Waitress was... More

Had dinner here over night. The crab soup was excellent, as well as the crabcake melt. It was a little disappointing that nothing comes with a sandwich except a couple pickle slices, but the side fry portions were enough for 2 people. The interior wasn't anything to special. Overall, a relatively cheap, good meal. I will definitely eat here again.
