Yum!

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... read more

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

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.

I used to stop at this place all the time when leaving work or the beach in Ocean City. The crab melt grilled cheese and angry crab soup were my go to's. If I were to judge on past experiences (prior to airing of DDD) I would have given 5 stars. No doubt. However, I drove over an hour last... More

We saw the tv episode and are always looking for a local dive place with great food. This place is not it. The small strip mall eatery looked great on tv, but the food was terrible. The famous grilled cheese crab cake sandwich could be rung out and it would leave a pound of grease on your plate. The grease... More
