Crab Legs!

We went for the all-you-can-eat crab legs, which are only served on Monday nights. Each batch that was brought was always hot and steamy. They cracked up wonderfully and tasted great! We never had to ask for more, in fact e had to tell our wonderful waitress when to stop. We have never had that... read more

This establishment came highly recommended but unfortunately it was somewhat of a let down. Although we were very quickly seated (Friday evening) and the staff were friendly, the fries were too oily, the pulled pork was dry and vinegary, and the one dessert on offer (bread and butter pudding) was stone cold in places. A real shame and now off... More

I went here based on TripAdvisor revues. Nailed another one Tripadvisor! I got the Bounty Platter so I was able to sample the oysters, scallops, shrimp and fish. AW just knocked it out of the park. One word of advice, this place is smaller than it looks. I got there a little past 5 and by 5:30 it was almost... More

This was the first seafood restaurant my wife and I had dinner at in Norfolk. We selected the restaurant because of trip advisor reviews and the exceptional reviews were spot on!!! There was a slight delay in being seated, as we did not have a reservation prior to our arrival. Once seated, our journey began... The draft beers were incredible... More

Love this place for seafood. Lots of different oysters on the half shell. Great sandwiches and good sized helpings. Extensive beer and wine list.

A seafood place in Norfolk. Good variety of fish along with shellfish. In decent weather, dine outside on the patio.

My husband and I have eaten here several times. The food is really good, prices are reasonable and the staff super friendly. This is a perfect place for a relaxing, laid back night out.

I had been here 3 years ago. It was so good that I came back, with my family! They loved it too! Fish & chips - best ever. 12 oysters (raw) - 8 out of 12 were great, the other 4 a bit salty (but that is an oyster problem, not restaurant problem!); fish sandwich: great! My 12 year old... More

We had to go through a rough neighborhood to get to the restaurant but it was worth it. The seafood was excellent and the price was reasonable. The beer was very expensive, however, so plan accordingly.

Great food, appetizers and service for a reasonable price! The menu is varied, offering chicken and burgers for those who don't love seafood. But for those who do, the seafood platter provides a great variety, lots to eat,and is under $25. Waitstaff was friendly, and very forgiving of our 16-month-old grandson's mess! Definitely family friendly.
