It's kind of romantic, historic, going by the water where local fisherman sell they're day catch. Right. Half the stuff is trucked in from who knows where, the food items are MICROWAVED and probably the WORST crabcakes I've ever had (I couldn't even identify the crab meat). We've been at least five times for mostly the steamed crabs and the fresh oysters. We got the worst service on the planet today (staff kicking garbage cans around, drinking profits, clearly underpaid and no boss was around to complain to); the oyster guy seemed to think he had to do every job but his own. When I complained he told me to go somewhere else. Ok, I will. Dirty surroundings and poor service. I put up with it until today because the crabs were good, but not anymore. I can get crabcakes in many good restaurants and be sure that the oysters are from a reputable source. Worst of all, I brought friends from out of town and it was super embarrassing. Plus we got a traffic ticket for parking under the bridge!
