We finally checked this place out last night. All we wanted was crab, some shrimp, and some raw oysters. We got there early around 5 since we were already on that side of town. Thinking we would beat the rush the server (who has worked there since the beginning) said that this is the off season as far as business is concerned and that it starts picking up in March and goes to October. We love crab anytime.
We decided to get the dozen large instead of the the all you can eat. The crab were nice sized for the all you can eat but we decided more return on our work and we could get more if we wanted. They came to the table fast and hot! The 1/2 pound of shrimp were very nice sized. I got a dozen oysters (wife does not eat them), and well priced and delicious.
This place has been around for over 14 years and has moved once. It is what it is. A place to sling crab. Thats what people come here to do. The place could be cleaner, which the bathrooms were clean. Again just remember this is a place to slap around crab as well as other seafood and drink some brew. We will go back had a great time eating crab and enjoying time with my bride.
