“just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

we didnt think it was that great here - you couldnt fault the service, but the food was overpriced for what it was and the portion that you got.

“Excellent But Pricey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

I thoroughly enjoyed the outside setting, the indoor atmosphere, the courteous waiters and the excellent food. Had I checked the menu in advance I would have been better prepared for the relatively high prices.

“Good food”

Good food, good service, reasonable prices. This place gets crowded about 6PM. Suggest to go before then.

“yummy but pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

We were skeptical about this place, since there was hardly anyone in the restaurant and it smelled like dead fish....but it was actually really good, just expensive.

“Not a place to learn to eat crabs”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

Liked the idea of a crabshack. But the big ganglly legged spider crabs are kindof difficult to eat. Like trying to get toothpaste from a thin narrow tube. Much better were the pre-prepard dishes like depfried coconut crusted shrimps. They. were the thing! Service was ok but nothing special. Waiter ok but spoke real fast where this was wrong for first time crabhouse visitors who needed better advice. Also they failed at first to bring the crab-crushing tools needed to get into the beast. Overall, I will stick with Cromer crabs :)
