The angry crab soup was very good and spicy but not too spicy. Fried pickles were crisp and tasty. Also had the build you own grilled cheese with smoked gouda, tomato and bacon. Bread was grilled perfectly. Definitely NOT a one and done. Kudos.

I went here after seeing Guy was here from triple D. I've passed this place a million times and finally stopped for lunch. First, the place is definitely a dive. It is dated and dirty. I ordered four crab melts and the crab fries to go. The crab cake was mush and the butter from the bread made it even... More

We decided to try this place on our way to vote on Election Day. First time here….kept reading the reviews on TripAdvisor, just never up this way. First impression walking in…friendly greeter, small dining room and not very crowded. We placed our order, one grilled cheese with bacon and one chicken cheesesteak with fries and two drinks. As we were... More

Walked in to a very non shore looking place. It was simple and small. We were greeted by the most pleasant Greeter/Cashier/Server all in one. The owner was behind the grill and acknowledged our arrival. We were seated in kind of older country store table and chairs. The feeling one got was sit back and enjoy the food. My wife... More

We love ordering from here while we are on the AC expressway and picking it up on our way to OC. The food is delicious. The Crab Melt sandwich is incredible. All of the soups are delicious. We have had a few parties catered with their food and everyone raved over it. This is a hidden gem. Try it you... More

Been here 4 times, and they never disappoint. The crabmeat type soup over French fries I never had, and loved it. Had an awesome grilled cheese with jalepeno, tomato, cheese, ham, and onion rings...which was awesome. I rec this place to anyone.

We've driven by this place for several years on our way to Ocean City and finally stopped in after reading reviews. What a wise choice. The grilled crab cake platter was delicious. The crab cake was moist and cooked perfectly with plenty of crab meat and the fries were plentiful, hot and so good. The grilled cheese with Jersey tomato... More

This place looks like it could be a dive, but it really a fantastic place to eat and a great value too. The house salad was the best I had during our two week vacation. The kids loved their "create your own" grilled cheese sandwiches and the crab cakes were excellent. Friendly service and terrific food.
