“Go for the crab leg experience...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

My 8 year old daughter enjoyed smashing the crab legs with the mallet and getting the meat out. Decent outdoor patio with waterfall and mountain views. Service was good but not great. Expensive for the total experience though.

“Seafood in the desert?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

There is an old saying about not eating seafood in the desert or beef on the coast. However, my shrimp tasted fresh and was good (but not great). The waiter was just okay. The restaurant seemed a bit outdated and tired. I agree with the previous reviewer who said they had better food at Joe's Crab Shack.

“Good chowder, good service”

We had a good experience at this restaurant, took our granddaughter there and the food was good. The patio was nice and cool to sit at. The service was good as well. We would go back.

“not worth the price”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

very dissappointed, was expecting great seafood, but then again, location was palm springs, middle of the desert!. Shared the crab pot, was more potatoes and corn than actual crab legs, which were not very good. Had better food at Joe's Crab Shack!!
