My daughter brought me here for Mother's Day and I must say, I'm happy she did. I had snowcrabs in the "hot n juicy sauce". I added corn, sausage and potato to it, boy was it good. Thanks to the server for telling me that...More

We ate dinner there one evening, thinking it would be a reasonably priced meal (for the Woodley Park area). We ended up spending $80 with no booze on greasy, over cooked bar food that was laced with cheap spices reeking of chemicals. Never again.

This place is the best. Food is very delicious. You can pick the seasoning and level of spice. It is very neat that the food comes in a plastic bag to the table and you eat from there. They provide bibs and gloves, if you...More

If you come here you must get the 'hot and juicy' seasoning! We came here with our 10 year old son and he loved it as well. We got the Cajun calamari, crab legs, and shrimp and all was delicious! We will make sure to...More

Had the shrimp and sweet potato fries. It was fun eating without a plate or utensils. Very popular place!

An experience. While lacking in space, once the food arrives your claustrophobia is an easy trade. The food here is not for the faint of heart. Every bite is filled with the type of deliciousness people would die for.

We ate here as it was in walking distance from the hotel. We waited for about 20 minutes and the food was worth the wait. The chicken sandwich was great, and the corn on the cob was awesome. The spices are really good.

don't think they do and as others have said the Bar area is tiny. overall it's a small restaurant and it's the kind of place that people linger.
