Let me begin by saying that I will definitely go back to this restaurant in the summer season. It's the kind of place that has that beach like feel and it's hard to rate a crab restaurant when they can't get crabs because it's off season. That being said, my recent visit was hit or miss as far as the food. The crab dip appetizer was outstanding as was the large and very fresh steamed shrimp. The crab cakes however, were disappointing. Mostly filler and not up to expectations. I had potato salad with my entree and it was bland and mushy. The Cole slaw was much better. I noted a lot of discussion amongst the staff that needed to be taken off the dining floor. It gives a negative impression when the servers are debating who has what tables and the management is yelling across the room about a problem with the computers causing some issues with the orders routing to the kitchen.
I can see this being a fun, casual beer drinking crab picking place when the summer hits, but also worry about their ability to keep guests comfortable. This place has a tent roof and the space heaters kept us comfortable in near freezing temps outside, but I am not sure what they can do to manufacture A/C in the summer. I will definitely make a trip to see what happens and hopefully they will have some nice jumbo crabs available.
