“Very good food at good price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012 via mobile

We ate here twice on our vacation in June. I had the Banging Shrimp Taco's twice they were so good. A couple with us shared the steamer bucket. My wife had the steamed crab legs. All were good and reasonably priced! Have a ShockTop Belgian White with it...Mmmmmm!

“Not Good...2 bad experiences”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

On the menu was "1 lb. of snow crab legs=$18.95", so my sister told the waitress that her and I would like to share the pound. We get the crab legs and they served us ONE crab split down the middle.... There is NO WAY it was even 5 ounces. We complained to the waitress and she said "that is how we do the snow crabs here, 1/2 lb. is one half a crab and 1 lb. is one crab." We told her we were going to share the pound, and she didn't even warn us that we would be sharing one crab! I asked her if she had a scale because there is no way this is even a half a pound, and she said no they don't. For a place that sells seafood by the pound, and don't even have a scale is ridiculous and a rip off! We complained to the manager who said that the supplier gives them each 1/2 crab that is supposed to be 6 to 8 ounces. We asked him to measure it and he wouldn't. He hesitantly offered us another 1/2 crab leg...The 1 1/2 crab was still not 1 lb....We were not satisfied with this at all. But paid and left, still hungry :(. They should change there menu to say "1 snow crab = $18.95". I will say that the crab was tasty though, so that is a plus. We had also gone here previously and got a crab pot. It was so-so, and out of the small amount of clams that were given, three were unopened! Why would they serve unopened clams? I do not recommend this place.

“Hit or miss”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

Both the food and service can be hit or miss here but overall it is a good choice. Playground and menu for the kids!

“One of the best seafood places for the money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

we went in with a group of 8. Service was great. Everyone was friendly. The prices were better than other seafood places we found. My Husband got oysters and they were great. She Crab soup great. Salads are large for the price you pay- great value. Would go back again
