“Deliciously Spicy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

The foods are deliciously spicy. I like fish and chips. My family like boiled crawfish and crabs. We usually wait about 40 minutes but it is worth it.

“Yummy Seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

I have been to this place many times and always feel the food a great taste. I always recommend anyone who wants to enjoy delicious seafood. Even though it's super busy all the time, worth waiting to dine in.

“Order to go if you don't want to wait!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

When we first drove by and saw the line we decided not to go. We had heard so many good things about this place, we decided to turn around and check it out. We ordered it to go, grabbed some extra paper/napkins and are at a local park. Yum!

“Worth the wait!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

I was in a party of 6. When we got there on a Sun. at opening time (12:00) there was already a line half a block long! We were told when we finally got in to put our name in that it would be close to 2 hr.s. I did not want to wait but everyone else said they heard it would be worth it. We got in just under 2 hr.s. All the service help were very nice and helpful. I ordered a calamari appetizer. It was not bad, but not amazing either. It was all rings. No shoots or figure ends. You sit at the table that is covered with paper. All your scrapes, shells, and everything else you just throw on the table. Its a fun experience. You feel like your on the East coast, or in Cajun country. When you order, it comes by the pound on the shrimp, snow crab, king crab, and crawfish. Oysters only come raw. No fried or broiled. Fries ( plain or Cajun), new red potatoes, corn on the cobb are all excellent but are an extra charge. You can get different spices, and different levels of spicy. I tasted the king crab, shrimp, potatoes, corn, catfish, and chicken strips. All were excellent. It was a very fun time. And yes, I would say it WAS worth the wait.
