Oh, it's crowded all right. Heaving. There's hardly any parking. But we took home fresh crabs and smiled all night. This is a truly authentic, home-grown Washingtonian kind of place. The fish is good; the atmosphere is eager and alive. Don't try to do it in a hurry. You might want your fish cleaned (over there) or cooked just the way you like it (back that way). Enjoy the people. And buy extra.
